Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg apologizes over Trump remarks

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has issued an apology over comments she recently made regarding Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"On reflection, my recent remarks and 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," said Ginsburg.

Speaking with the NY Times, Ginsburg weighed in last week on the impact of a Trump presidency. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that,” said Ginsburg.

Ginsburg also called Trump a "faker" during an interview with CNN.

Trump fired back this week saying via Twitter: "Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!

He also suggested he would "swamp" the Court with "real judges."
