Trump: I am questioning Ginsburg’s ‘mental capacity’

Donald Trump continued bashing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Wednesday, calling her a “disgrace” as he acknowledged questioning her mental capacity.

Trump has been on the warpath against the justice since she — to the surprise of many —  openly fretted about the idea of him serving in the White House on Friday and suggested fleeing the country in a Sunday New York Times interview. 

In response, Trump tweeted that Ginsburg should resign. He followed up during a Wednesday evening interview on Fox News. 

{mosads}”She’s a disgrace to the Supreme Court. For her to politicize the Supreme Court, this is all the more reason I hope I win, because I have 11 justices who are incredible justices, highly respected by all, including liberal people,” he said on “Special Report,” referring to his list of possible Supreme Court picks he released in May.  

“For her to come out and say [these] kind of things, there’s almost something wrong with her,” Trump added. 

When asked by Fox News’s Brett Baier if he was questioning Ginsburg’s mental capacity, a reference to his tweet earlier Wednesday, Trump said yes. 

“Yes, I think I am. I think I am questioning her mental capacity.” 

GOP lawmakers have laid into the liberal-leaning justice for her comments, with Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) questioning whether she’ll have to recuse herself from future cases if they involve Trump or his possible administration.

But Democrats have rushed to her aid, arguing that she has a right to speak her mind.
