John Roberts (Justice)
New York Times congressional correspondent Carl Hulse predictably shrugged off Sen. Chuck Schumer’s volatile verbal threats directed at two Supreme Court justices nominated by the Trump administration: “Schumer Regrets Content, But Not Spirit, of Warning.” Hulse generally gives Democrats the benefit of the doubt when they make nasty attacks on Republicans, and similarly shrugged off Schumer’s inflammatory rhetoric at a rally, warning the justices not to take away abortion rights. Hulse let Schumer “clarify” his remarks.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls Chuck Schumer's attack on Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh "deeply disturbing" and "reprehensible." He says it is right for Chief Justice Roberts to have rebuked Schumer. But Joe goes on to sarcastically say that he expects Roberts and Mitch McConnell to also rebuke President Trump for attacking federal judges.
CNN rarely criticizes Democrats so it was an anomaly when Thursday morning’s New Day panel blasted Sen. Chuck Schumer’s threat against two conservative Supreme Court justices yesterday, “wrong and inappropriate.” Co-host John Berman spoke with CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin about both Schumer threatening conservative justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch yesterday at a pro-abortion rally outside the Supreme Court, as well as Chief Justice John Roberts later rebuking him.
It started out as a decent Wednesday segment of Cuomo Prime Time, where CNN host Chris Cuomo denounced Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for threatening two Supreme Court justices, saying it was something the public “should not accept.” But it rapidly morphed into yet another bitter bashing session with Cuomo railing against Chief Justice John Roberts for not calling President Trump “dangerous.”
MRC Latino Director Jorge Bonilla was the first on the scene Wednesday when he shared a video of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatening a “price” would be paid by conservative Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, if they decided to uphold a pro-life law. The video drew outrage from many and a powerful rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. But NBC Nightly News reported not a word of the incident and instead showcased cheerleading dads.
Hollywood actresses always seem to make an appearance whenever there's a chance that one less baby might be aborted. Celebrity feminists Elizabeth Banks and Busy Philipps joined Democratic lawmakers and pro-abortion demonstrators at the foot of the Supreme Court on March 4 to stand in solidarity with baby-killing as a recent legal case involving the procedure was being heard.
Less than an hour after CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer conceded Thursday that “Democrats look like they’re in trouble,” the Erin Burnett OutFront panel lambasted CNN’s beloved 2020 Democrat and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a question that many deemed over the line about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts.
Apparently even the shallowest level of research is too difficult for Washington Post fake “conservative” blogger, Jennifer Rubin. The liberal journalist and MSNBC contributor tried to dunk on President Trump’s lawyers in the Senate impeachment trial with an immature tweet mocking them as inexperienced buffoons. Unfortunately for Rubin, she was the one who ended up looking like a fool.
The premise of Dana Milbank's Washington Post column on Thursday is that the real reason why we are currently experiencing an impeachment process is not due to the Democrats urge to impeach from the moment President Trump was elected in 2016. No, according to Milbank the true impeachment culprit is..... Chief Justice John Roberts. I kid you not.
Despite the fact that Senate Democrats have already determined that President Trump is guilty of what the House of Representatives has accused, MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing took the opportunity on Friday to say that it is Republicans who care incapable of holding a fair trial. Not only that, but she held up Kamala Harris as an example of someone who "knows what a fair trial looks like." She added Chief Justice John Roberts to that list as well as Roberts will preside the trial, assuming the House eventually submits the articles to the Senate.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, as fill-in co-host Jim Sciutto and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to take up a gun case originating in New York, the two fretted that the right-leaning Court might end up barring many gun control proposals that are popular with liberals like more restrictive background checks.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "I know" the Roberts Supreme Court won't overturn Roe v. Wade, in light of a recent poll showing only 13% of Americans favor overturning it. Refusing to apply the Constitution, bowing instead to the public sentiment of the day, would represent an appalling abdication of the Court's duty.
