JNS.org – US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is Jewish, issued an apology for remarks she made earlier this week that were critical of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Ginsburg, 83, spoke of her recent remark that Trump is a “faker,” and that she doesn’t even want to “contemplate” a Trump administration. She also joked that in such a scenario, she might move to New Zealand.

“He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego….How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that,” she had told the New York Times.

Responding to Ginsburg, Trump tweeted that she had “embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!”

Ginsburg subsequently said in a statement released by the Supreme Court, “On reflection, my recent remarks in 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.”

    If she moves to New Zealand….good riddance. The only time I have seen her sober and awake is when she is bad mouthing Trump. My guess is New Zealand would probably not let her in.
