"Her mind is shot - resign!" he declared.

The Supreme Court normally has nine justices but has been one short since the conservative Antonin Scalia died in February.

Of course, that's where they show their legendary bias. "I think anybody who's observed her, she's done her work".

"He is a faker", she said in the CNN interview.

But Trump isn't the only one who was put off by Ginsburg's remarks. Trump suggested he is biased because of his Mexican heritage, called him "hostile" and said he should be "ashamed of himself". All of this raises questions about her judgment, her temperament, and her continuing capacity to serve as a judge.

Ginsberg touched off a firestorm of criticism for her comments about the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, including calling him a "faker". It was just weeks ago that he was lambasting Gonzalo Curiel, the United States District Court judge overseeing a case against Trump University, saying that as a "Mexican", the Indiana-born judge could not be impartial. "When unelected judges try to impose their own policy's wrong and it's risky".

"Everyone knows she is a liberal Democrat", he said.

"I think they have very precise rules within the Supreme Court of when recusal is necessary", he said.

Earnest said he declined to comment further- pointing to past precedent.

Supreme Court Justices rarely give interviews, and when they do, they mostly stay away from politics. "I think I'll pursue a similar approach in this instance". He asked for her to apologize, according to the New York Times.

"I can't imagine what this place would be - I can't imagine what the country would be - with Donald Trump as our president", Ginsburg said in remarks published over the weekend.

The breakdown of how her statements are being received from the rest of the political class has predictably broken down on party lines. "I do not believe anything that comes out of his mouth". Even House Speaker Paul Ryan, who will chair the convention that nominates Trump, has said the candidate's attacks on judges and the judiciary are "indefensible" statements that "should be absolutely disavowed".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Fox News that Ginsburg's comments were "totally inappropriate".

Don't ever get it twisted: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a treasure on the Supreme Court and anyone who cares about civil rights for anyone should be thankful she exists.

Ben Carson, a Trump confidant, told CNN's Erin Burnett on "OutFront" that he agreed.

They don't call it the Supreme Court for nothing.

Trump's tweet came after Ginsburg repeatedly criticized the real estate tycoon in interviews with several media outlets. "Big mistake by an incompetent judge!" Trump wrote on Twitter in the early hours of Wednesday. In the legal world there is surely a broad concern, reflected in Ginsburg's outspokenness, that a Trump presidency might mortally wound the Constitution.
