Some conservatives are coming to the defense of President Donald Trump after Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts scolded him, with Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, even bringing former President Barack Obama into the discussion.
Grassley tweeted Wednesday evening in the wake of the public spat between Trump and Roberts over the impartiality of the nation's judges.
"Chief Justice Roberts rebuked Trump for a comment he made abt judge's decision on asylum," Grassley wrote. "I don't recall the Chief attacking Obama when that Prez rebuked Alito during a State of the Union."
Grassley was referring to when Obama criticized a decision made by the Supreme Court during his 2010 State of the Union speech.
Joining Grassley in standing by Trump's side is conservative radio host and constitutional expert Mark Levin, who weighed in on Facebook.
"It appears John Roberts doesn't live in the real world," Levin said. "A few decades ago he understood that there are, in fact, too many progressive judges and justices who legislate from the bench. Indeed, when it came to Obamacare, Roberts himself led the court's leftists in rewriting the Constitution and imposing that damnable law on all of us.
"We don't need any lectures from him. Indeed, he should be admonishing his own branch of government for its outrageous activism rather than playing to the media by attacking the president. Classless."
Trump complained this week that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is so liberal that his opponents file lawsuits in that court's network in order to get a favorable outcome.
