    Americans need to support Trump and get rid of judges who halt true progress and common sense Law that can protect the American citizens. Initial rulings have never restrained Trump before. No Judge should overrule, A President, Congress or the American people. Change the scope of Powers. Why are all the Asylum cases filed in the 9th Circuit and not in any other Courts? That's a real question. Trump seeks the truth, just because the Guy's a Judge does that excuse him from criticism? Another real question. The Travel Ban was evidence of Political Judges. Dopey! Obama was an Illegitimate President. Trump will prove it when he stops having to deal with all this distractive Dem behavior. Trump, bravest President to serve America.

  • Chaud Poivron

    Why does Whitaker's previous opinions matter when Rosenstein's doesn't . I believe Rosenstein had harsher opinions, wanting to wear a wire and impeach Trump even before the investigation got underway. You can't believe these people. The same rules they cry about don't apply to their political side.

  • B Rob

    American Presidents command respect, they do not demand loyalty, they do not try to "off" political opponents. As a president he should not be speaking on the judicial system, but upholding it.

  • maria conception

    Do some research, don’t just revolve yourself in one sided fake media. You maybe hate Trump for his attitude but it’s undeniable that he meant well for this country unless you don’t like that too!

  • Billy Cooper

    I guess Roberts doesn't understand that it was a bad comparison to liberal and conservative judges the president is right in the fact the ninth circuit is an abomination to the republic.

    A president is the head of the Executive branch but not the head of the Judiciary. However, I suspect Trump will use the acting AG as a catalyst for his agenda. As we've seen from Jeff Flake, words are one thing and actions are another. We'll have to wait and see what happens if any of the Mueller investigation cases have to go to the SCOTUS…. if Roberts and the other Justices uphold the Constitution or the Unitary Executive theory.

    Just put this MOBSTER POTUS in jail as a TRAITOR to all real americans NOT REPULICANS.REPUBLICANS are TRAITORS to all americans that do not follow TRAITOR trumps.

  • Aleta Mize

    Trump is nothing but a TRAITOR to Republican TRAITORS to all real AMERICANS that are not for this evil potus. Which is the poor.

  • Cloud Strife

    Only one problem. This guy is talking about asylum ban. What country is he talking about? Here in America we have legal immigration so he couldn't be talking about my country.

  • Good Life Greenscapes Landscapes & Gardens

    Democrats and their affiliate media outlets have to get ahead of these building indictments against our Democratic Party Gods Hillary, Obama, and all their political allies who are trying their damnedest to trump up charges against the sitting POTUS Trump…unfruitfully.

    The USA is a failed democracy. Trump lost the popular vote. In the USA the election looser becomes President. Minority rules in a failed democracy.

    Trump is a Mafia Type crook that is deeply attached to Russia and the Saudi Prince of Arabia that hold this Pmurt =Trump by P Tape and money laundering through offshore directors in Europe and the use of a name to shift money World Wide into the pockets of the World Mafia that operate from America and Europe Extreme Right,that are controlling through newspapers and tv ownership by a much bigger crooks than Trump,

    He's already said if it comes to it he thinks he has the power to pardon himself…..hang him out to dry in a federal prison with his kids and wife and not the white collar prisons more like collage the federal prison with murderers and rapest…he belongs there….

  • jackie pollard

    Is he trying to make it so that there's not 1 impartial person left for when his case comes up??Any of them?? I say tough poop…get him the eff out already.

    Illuminating the cancer of Amerikkka: the numbskulls who voted for him…and there are millions of them: hateful, believing in jesus…but no love…just bitter selfish ignorant sheeple, its refreshing to get it into the open…sad.

  • DD

    Trump is the king of fake news. And only his blind followers will believe anything he say. He never has any kind of evidence to back up what he says. He does exactly what he says mainstream media does

  • Adrienne Gardner

    I want him stopped, but I don't want to see him impeached. At this point it's very important for the People to vote him out of office by a major landslide from both Parties! Then we need to break him financially. That's the only way he can be weakened. Otherwise his destructive rhetoric will continue through the ratings hungry media.

  • Ponni Sessions

    Justice Roberts is wrong and everyone knows it. Ideally, we wish the Justice could be right, but he isn't.
    All judges, lawyers, and courts are political.

  • B. Terence Harwick

    Without an independent judiciary, 
    There is no rule of law,
    Or a sustainable democracy…
    The 2018 Senate obviously believes otherwise. The future of America is TBD…..

  • Keri-Lynn

    Everyone…..please research The Federalist Society. They need to be disbanded, disbarred. I think certain members are now purposefully "going rogue", & crossing our independent-Judicial lines.

    Australia denies Trump a casino license because of poor character and mob ties. But the gangsterland called USA makes him president.

  • Steve Barrios

    Trump is such a dissolution let down to this great country he needs to be by way of vote in peace and by way of the law thrown in jail with his crony family this is disgusting it's got to stop this guy is on the brink of starting an unnecessary War to get thousands if not millions of American citizens who fight for us bravely all around this great country killed impeach Trump 2019

  • Clarissa Park

    TRUMP, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS NOT YOUR PERSONAL ATTORNEY. HE OR SHE IS APPOINTED FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SWEARS UNDER OATH TO THIS COUNTRIES CONSTITUTION!!! QUICK SAYING, "MY ATTORNEY GENERAL"

  • 1000kings1

    The President has the legal right to protect our borders. Ninth circuit judge does not have the authority to stop the President from protecting us. When it gets to Supreme court the ninth will be overturned again.
    After obama sent the IRS after GOP campaign donors and spied on Candidate Trump with unjustified FISA warrant, you are
    hypocrits to imply President Trump has done anything illegal. Fake news more dangerous to country than russians ever could be.

  • Here Comes the Sun!

    So does Chief Justice Roberts have to have a permit for the Unicorn he drives to work everyday? Apparently when Morpheus offered Justice Roberts the blue & red pill he decided to take the blue pill. That was the pill that allowed him to go back to sleep & wake up to believe whatever he wanted.

    Apparently Chief Justice Roberts feels the legal profession operates in a moral utopia where the general public holds lawyers and judges in the same moral category as Jesus & the Apostles. Don’t mind the fact that in just about every major city there’s a law firm billboard on every corner encouraging frivolous lawsuits. Na, it’s not about the money, lawyers & judges just want what’s true, moral and good for society. Wow, now I sound like I took the blue pill. 😳

  • Kelly Pierce

    I think the reporter is trying to spare the judge from being killed since he has life long tenure, and will make the best decision, but some lone gunman might extrapolate something else from the judge's rebuking of Trump along with Trump's chastising of the judge which, for others, led to bomb scares.

    Ari Melber looks like hes been on a 5 day bender. Like he woke up drunk in his small apartment with an empty cup of chinese spilled over his wifebeater.

  • M A R

    Time for someone in this government who has ethical standards to step up and remove this guy from office. Trump is trying to take over all parts of the government and make it 'his' government. And doing so, I believe would make the U.S. in line with a dictatorship type government. I cannot believe that the 'sensible' side of our senators and representatives is allowing this tyranny to continue . And ,when I see people sitting behind Trump at his blowhard rallies, I can't believe this is what they want. The only rights they will get is what Trump deems fit!

  • Richard Bambenek

    Trump does not have a strong enough character to be our President. He can't handle criticism without getting his feelings hurt.

  • joan lapi

    Aren’t you ashamed of your comments- Shut your mouth The President is always right. Justice has an a Obama Judge. It is the first time – why ?? you will find out very soon. Then I hope you will apologize to the President. Don’t believe the NYT . MSNBC I don’t know whether to laugh at you guys MSNBC – you are all dangerous not knowing the truth . LOL

  • kc Cox

    Do your research! Obama criticized Justices as they sat front roll during his televised speech. Other former Presidents displayed displeasure with Justices.
    The whole truth is appreciated.

  • Lore Bay

    Obama, Obama, Obama……the last 2years, always deflecting to Obama. How do you expect us to forget the gentleman and his excellent representation of the Office of the Presidency when we are constantly reminded of him. I don’t agree with a lot of his policies, but sure miss him.

  • Amber Kelly

    Trump is dangerous and stupid. I respect every person that speaks out against him, no matter what their political affiliation may be. That also goes the other way. Those who go along to get along when wrong is being done are cowards whether they agree with my politics or not.

  • slobnoxious

    Trump is right on this. There are Obama judges and Trump judges. Also, it's hypocrisy that He said something about Trump, but gave Obama a free pass at the 2010 State of The Union when Obama rebuked the entire Supreme Court.

  • maria mendoza

    we all need to unite, we need to get all those Russians puppets out of the white house and lock them up, starting with the Orange Cheeto and his air head daughter

  • Francis Lumley

    While I wish for the day when Trump is removed, I have to remember that his puppet masters installed him only to be removed! That is going to create the chaos they aim for in order to offer us a solution that suits their agenda. Let's get prepared for that scenario to minimize the public outcry.

  • pica

    The ORANGE NINCOMPOOP helped expose all the CORRUPTION being done by certain elements (rich man gangs) in the USA. Thanks to him, we, the people, know SOME of the shenanigans that are going on in our country, and going UNPUNISHED at that. I bet he wishes he'd stayed out of the public eye!!! Thanks, Ari and MSNBC, for your SUPERB reporting!!!

  • Jace Cavacini

    Kavanaugh wasn’t careful or non-partisan in his rant … The notion of Supreme Court justices as being non-political is being hurt by the very people this administration is trying to use to stack the deck. This is long term damage as it calls to question, legitimately, the supreme court’s ability to be apolitical.

  • yojimbe1

    I feel like people who still believe this government actually represents us should be on display at the Smithsonian or the Museum of Natural History. Nothing this government is doing represents my values. War, murder, lies, false flag attacks, globalism, racial division, etc…it's what I feel anyone with their head on straight would oppose. It just so happens that most of our politicians have a completely opposite view and represent anyone but the people.

  • D Adams

    Roberts needs to realize we Americans who are not gullible to the propaganda put out by the news and see the long list of good things Trump has done for America, stand behind TRUMP. We've had enough of Robert's BS and the constant attacks on Trump by the rest of the brainwashed. Every American should educate yourself on the FACTS. A start would be actually listening in full to the State of the Union 2018.

  • M. A.

    Chipping away is what Putin did to his country. I blame the social media honchos too, for their participation in letting Russia use them.

    Why not a story on why uranium mining is not stopped. PBS documentary had a story on how native american were affected by the poisoning, affects dna, cancers common. This aquifer is largest in the country from S. Dakota to Texas under Utah & Montana. Why does Russia own 20% of company Uranium One? How about Russia paying for favors into Clinton Foundation.

    Do you realise that you too when you speak the word "FAKE" seems to be flashed across your forehead. The only thing that changes is the word becomes clearer and clearer.

    All that happened since this program was aired
    Why is there no move to impeach by the Congress
    This is amazing to watch after all that has happened
    Democrats have to put Country above votes
