McConnell Slams Ginsburg's Anti-Trump Comments

  • (12 Jul 2016) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says it was "totally inappropriate" for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to criticize Donald Trump.
    Ginsburg said in an interview with The Associated Press last week that she didn't want to think about the possibility that Trump would be president and predicted that Democrat Hillary Clinton will win.
    McConnell said Tuesday that members of the Supreme Court shouldn't weigh in on American elections.
    "It raises a level of skepticism that the American people have from time to time about just how objective the Supreme Court is, whether they're over there to call the balls and strikes, or weigh in on one side or another," he said.
    Ginsburg said if Trump wins, "everything is up for grabs," including the future of the high court. She is the oldest justice at age 83.
    McConnell also said he will speak at the Republican convention next week.
