“I really did have trouble with the partisan nature of his direct attack on Democrats broadly and the Democrats on the [Senate Judiciary] Committee in particular,” Coons said on “Fox and Friends.” “I think Judge Kavanaugh would have been better served leaving those arguments to his partisan defenders.”

“We are elected as politicians and we do at times attack each other from a partisan perspective,” Coons continued. “I don’t think a sitting judge should have come at us with quite that tone.”

Anchor Brian Kilmeade then confronted Coons with a statement Ginsburg made in 2016 regarding President Donald Trump’s election: “I can’t imagine what this place would be – I can’t imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be – I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

Kilmeade asked Coons why he never expressed concern with her partisanship, compelling him to admit the inappropriateness of her remark.

“I was unaware of that particular comment, that is also inappropriate,” Coons responded. “Sitting judges, sitting justices should not make comments about partisan politics in a way that would lead litigants in front of them to question whether they are fair and impartial judges and justices.”
