U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has apologized for her unprecedented attack this week on GOP presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Ginsburg had said in a New York Times interview published Monday, “I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president … For the country, it could be four years. For the Court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” She added a remark her late husband would say on such occasions: ‘Now it’s time to move to New Zealand.”

After a firestorm of criticism that followed the report, however, Ginsburg said in a statement released Thursday morning by the Court: “On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them. Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office.

“In the future I will be more circumspect.”

The Times had asked Trump for a response to Ginsburg’s comments following her interview. “I think it’s a disgrace to the Court, and I think she should apologize to the Court,” he told the newspaper.

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.”

  1. she is an idiot and showed it and thus got lots of critisism. thats the only reason she apologised. not voting for trump is voting for hillary. so like or not, you vote for trump if you care about america. and if you dont like it, keep it to yourself. people like this dumb lady just show themselves as NOT caring for the people in america when they speak like this.

  2. she is too biased to be a justice of the supreme court if she couldn’t hold herself back? she needs to find other work. I mean, they’d never put me on a jury if I blurt out words like that against someone, doesn’t matter if I apologize.
