    Trump demands that some Supreme Court Justices recuse themselves from cases involving him

    Trump lashes out at liberal supreme court justices and demands recusals | US news | The Guardian
    In a dissent last week, justice Sonia Sotomayor criticized the Trump administration’s frequent appeals to the supreme court to intervene in lower-court decisions, and the court’s willingness to side with such requests.

    On Twitter, responding to a segment on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle, Trump unleashed a tirade against Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has criticized the president in the past.

    “This is a terrible thing to say,” Trump tweeted. “Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!

    “While ‘elections have consequences’” – a reference to his two supreme court appointments since winning the White House, both reliable conservatives – “I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States supreme court!”

    ...
    “I just don’t know how they can not recuse themselves from anything having to do with Trump or Trump-related,” he said. “The right thing to do is that.

    “What Justice Sotomayor said … was really highly inappropriate and everybody agrees to that. Virtually everybody. I’ve seen papers on it, people cannot believe that she said it.”

    He said: “She’s trying to shame people with perhaps a different view into voting her way.”
    He deserves the 25th Amendment applied on him.

    I agree and this is old news if you're a news junkie like me.
    But, it's amazing that his sycophants aren't starting to wake up and realize how his mental status is so dangerous for the country. He really does have a god complex or whatever you prefer to call it.

    I think "demand" is too strong a word. But it sounds better.

    Whatever it takes to avoid confronting what he said, eh?

    humans have biases.. it's how we make decisions. It's the meta-context we all use to learn from the past and avoid repeat mistakes.
    So, if the bar for an "impartial jury of peers" to be "fair" is "no bias whatsoever", then no jury can ever exist that is "fair"... which is exactly what he wants... to be above the law.

    He said he wants them to recuse themselves. Okay. That's what he wants.

    Yeah it would be a shame if anything happened to them ...

    You sure do love your feargasms. Do you actually suspect he might have something done to them?
