‘Too Late’ — Conservatives Not Having RBG’s Walkback on Trump Criticisms

Ginsburg had already vented her 'politicized diarrhea of the mouth'

ginsburgWithin minutes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitting that her criticisms of Trump had been ill-considered, conservative pundits lambasted the Justice for expressing her too-little-too-late contriteness.

Ginsburg had leveled multiple criticisms at the presumptive GOP nominee, inciting Trump to accuse her of being a “disgrace to the court”, and even drawing the admonishment of the New York Times editorial board.

Ginsburg on Thursday morning walked back the remarks, saying in a statement, “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.”

But for many conservative pundits on Twitter, this did not meet the criteria for a proper apology and, besides, the damage was already done. Michelle Malkin for instance said that it was “too late” for the Justice to walk back her “politicized diarrhea of the mouth.”
