Trump Attacks Judge Who Ruled Against Him. Chief Justice Robert’s Response Is Perfect

In a rare statement, Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday rebuked Donald Trump’s criticism of a federal judge who ruled against his administration’s asylum policy this week as “an Obama judge.”

Roberts said U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” according to The Associated Press.

“What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them,” Roberts said in the statement released by the Supreme Court’s press office.

“That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for,” he added in the statement, which came a day before Thanksgiving.

The president’s criticism of U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar came a day after the judge sided with opponents of Trump’s policy prohibiting certain immigrants from claiming asylum and granted their request for a temporary restraining order.

Trump on Tuesday attacked Tigar, a judge from the Northern District of California, referring to him as “an Obama judge.” Tigar was nominated by the former president in 2012.
