Biden was pretty harsh this afternoon as his condemned the conservative justices and called it a “sad day for the country*” and the ruling a “tragic error.” He even went so far as to claim that the justices “took away a Constitutional right” when of course there is no constitutional right to an abortion and was the crux of what the SCOTUS determined.

Is it not undermining a co-equal branch of the government for a president to say that the SCOTUS has violated the Constitution?

Maybe because they lied about their intent

The Supreme Court is not above reproach.
They are judged by all Americans and will be judged by History

Fuck Brandon and the poop chair he tripped over trying to get his Depends on.

If this were Trump, you know the impeachment proceedings would already be underway.

Only 19 weeks to go.

Really good question, but the blob of cells to whom you're referring can't honestly be called a "sitting president".

Disagreeing with a SCOTUS decision is not the same as saying what Biden said that the court: "expressly took away a Constitutional right" which is a lie. He called the decision: "a culmination of a deliberate effort over the decades to upset the balance of our law." Who the Hell does he think he is? What kind of a POTUS only stands for their political party? That is totally inappropriate.

My point exactly. It’s like when he called the Rittemhouse verdict wrong, undermining the jury and our legal system.

Yep and also, typical of Marxist strategy, blame others for what you yourself are doing. Biden's a scumbag.

Judged to have upheld the Constitution and overturned the wrong decision decades ago.

They lied

They specifically stated Roe v Wade was the law of the land and that they supported the precedence

If they thought Roe was UnConstitutional, they should have stated so when they were confirmed

Instead……They lied

No wonder people like you are so totally disdained for their ignorance! Where is your proof for this statement?
"Maybe because they lied about their intent"
Where is your proof that the justices lied much less lied about WHAT?
What did they "LIE" about? Unlike the 2nd amendment, there is NO MENTION of killing babies in the Constitution which is what these justices used to make their ruling that Roe was unconstitutional.
Where in the Constitution does it deem killing babies is OK?

It was a bad decision in the first place, thank God they corrected it and re-instituted States' Rights.

Andrew Jackson told the supreme court to stuff it and completely defied them.
