Donald Trump got his clock cleaned by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and now he's getting schooled by another progressive and powerful women, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

"I can't imagine what this place would be - I can't imagine what the country would be - with Donald Trump as our president," she said. "For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be - I don't even want to contemplate that."

"'Now it's time for us to move to New Zealand,'" Justice Ginsburg said, smiling ruefully.

Donald was so upset by her remarks that he lashed out in his typical fashion in a phone interview with the Times:

Donald J. Trump on Tuesday assailed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court for speaking out on the presidential race, calling her disdainful remarks about his candidacy “highly inappropriate” and suggesting that she owed other justices an apology.

“I think it’s highly inappropriate that a United States Supreme Court judge gets involved in a political campaign, frankly,” Mr. Trump said. “I think it’s a disgrace to the court and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.”

He continued: “That she should be saying that? It’s so beneath the court for her to be making statements like that. It only energizes my base even more. And I would hope that she would get off the court as soon as possible.”

What a sap. He acts like a jerk to everyone who disagrees with him and he's got the audacity to whine like a little baby who needs his mommy when the eighty-three year old Supreme Brooklynite speaks up.

Princess Trumpie called for the smelling salts...

Seriously, I think the thing that exposes Mr Politically Incorrect's insanity (or stupidity) as much as anything is the fact that he believes he can criticize others for behaving inappropriately even as he behaves like a barbarian on a daily basis.

But it does mark him as a perfect wingnut. Their pearl clutching over their rivals doing things they constantly do themselves is one of their fundamental characteristics. It's also the way small children think before they grow out of their narcissism.

Where were all the pearl-clutchers when Justice Clarence Thomas failed to recuse himself from hearing the ACA cases while his wife Ginni was actively lobbying against the ACA, hmmmm?
