why do they want to impeach obama
Donald Trump apparently had his hands full at ThursdayБs Republican presidential debate hosted by CNN. With attacks coming continually from both Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio,бTrump, according to a, бstill came out on top. бHowever, Trump s popularity is in stark contrast to how he s perceived by individuals who may have a better grasp of civics than the Republican front-runner. In an exchange with Cruz, Trump made several inaccurate statements about the role of judges. Trump attempted to defend his sister s record as a judge, but in doing so, revealed to the audience a bit of judicial ignorance, according to
Now, Ted s been very critical, I have a sister, who is a brilliant, [interruption] excuse me, she s a brilliant judge.
He s been criticizingБ he s been criticizing my sister for signing a certain bill. You know who else signed that bill? Justice Samuel Alito, a very conservative member of the Supreme Court, with my sister signed that bill. So, I think that maybe we should get a little bit of an apology from Ted, what do you think?
Critical of the revealed ignorance in Trump s comments Wolf wrote, This is not Trump isn t a politician, this is Trump doesn t understand Civics 101. Judges do not sign bills which leaves open the question as to what Trump might have been trying to say. Was he referring a judicial decision? Was he referencing a court order? At any rate, Trump did not appear any more knowledgeable with his comments in the post-debate interview.
In the interview, Trump was asked who he would recommend for the vacant Supreme Court seat left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump replied, I would want to see scholars, but I think more than my asking, I would go on references of other people that I respect. Because that is not necessarily my world. I m very much into the world of legal and legality. But, that is not my world, so I would go to people that I have great respect for and say, Who do you recommend? Trump has often fallen back on his role as a businessman, rather than a politician, when asked tough questions, a fact Blitzer highlighted when he wrote about the interview with Trump.
Wolf wrote, This is a pretty stunning admission from Trump Б What Trump is saying here is that he, personally, has no idea whatsoever what he would do. He has no idea what questions he might ask of a judge. This is not a guy who can be trusted Б By his own admission he has literally no idea what he s doing when it comes to judicial nominations.
Quite frankly, as he demonstrated in the debate, he does not even know what judges do. And this is someone you want picking the replacement for Scalia? The GOP knows that crying, "Obama is cavalierly using his executive power to bypass Congress and legislate from the Oval Office! " will trigger a powerful public backlash and reinforce its usual charge against him of dictatorial abuse. It has played this card with maximum skill in its fierce fight to wrest back control of the Senate.
