WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she regrets her “ill-advised” public criticism of Donald Trump.

Ginsburg says in a statement issued by the court on Thursday that judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. She promises to be more circumspect in the future.

Ginsburg told The Associated Press last week that she did not want to think about the prospect of Trump winning the presidency. She escalated her criticism in subsequent media interviews.

She herself came under attack for her comments in recent days, leading to Thursday’s statement.

    Yeah…It is really nice to know that she suffers from very bad judgment skills…
    oh, and is also a supreme court justice that also just happens to be a Clinton appointee with a built in political bias and who also likes to drink and sleep on the job, not to mention the obvious touch of age related dementia ….
    nope, no cronyism, incompetence or political carpet bagging going on there.. No Siree..
    SMFH….

    All federal judges are appointed to terms that only end in three ways. One, they quit, two, they are impeached, or three, they die. Although she should, she doesn’t seem too anxious to retire. Even with a Republican controlled Senate, I doubt that a two-thirds majority would vote to impeach her, And although she looks like she’s ready for embalming, she’s still alive. Ultimately she’ll be replaced by the next President, and voters ought to be thinking more about the Supreme Court’s makeup as well as the Congress rather than the one individual in the White House.
