Halperin: If Ginsberg Was Republican ‘The World Would Explode’ from Her Trump Comments

<p>On Wednesday&rsquo;s edition on Bloomberg&rsquo;s <em>With All Due Respect</em>, co-host Mark Halperin admitted what many on the left probably wouldn&rsquo;t dare to. He admitted that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg&rsquo;s comments about Donald Trump have not been as controversial as they should be because she&rsquo;s a liberal. &ldquo;<strong>If a Republican justice did that to a Democratic candidate, I think, the world explode,</strong>&rdquo; Halperin exclaimed to co-host John Heilemann.</p>

<p>Halperin&rsquo;s exclamation came in response to his co-host who described Ginsberg&rsquo;s comments as &ldquo;unusual&rdquo; and &ldquo;probably inappropriate.&rdquo; Halperin had plenty to say about Notorious RBG&rsquo;s disparaging Trump comments. &ldquo;<strong>NO! Definitely inappropriate. Repudiated by some Democrats. In this partisan period that&rsquo;s extraordinary,</strong>&rdquo; he said, speaking over Heilemann.</p>

<p>There is evidence to support Halperin&rsquo;s assertion about the lack of explosiveness to the issue. During Tuesday evening&rsquo;s broadcast both ABC and CBS <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2016/07/12/abc-c…; target="_blank">ignored the ethical issues</a> of the comments, with only NBC saying they were a question of ethics. &nbsp;</p>

<p>Heilemann agreed but had his own question to raise, &ldquo;<strong>The question is whether Donald Trump gets much benefit out of attacking Ginsburg in the way he is attacking her.</strong>&rdquo; He argued that Trump could combat her in a better way that would get, &ldquo;<strong>everyone in the world who is not hopelessly partisan would say, &ldquo;You know what? Trump has a point there.&rdquo;</strong>&rdquo;</p>

<p>Halperin thought differently saying, &ldquo;<strong>I think it&rsquo;s good for Trump to even to do it this way &hellip; Again, probably not appealing to that many people in the center, but he does have some people on the left criticizing Ginsburg. And I think that helps his cause no matter how he takes it up.</strong>&rdquo;</p>
