Chief Justice John Roberts Claps Back At Trump's "Obama Judges" Comment

Responding to a reporter's question about a 9th Circuit appellate judge blocking his administration's attempt to deny asylum to migrants trying to lawfully enter the country, Donald Trump lashed out saying, “This was an Obama judge and I’ll tell you what, it’s not going to happen like this anymore…We will win that case in the Supreme Court of the United States.”

It turns out the Chief Justice of the United Supreme Court didn't take that 'Obama judge' comment lightly.

“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a statement 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. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”

The Trumpster couldn't resist continuing his rant:
