As for you presuming that he should not be called Judge.
Tell me, what do we call Bill Clinton?
Bill. Or Mr. Clinton. Depending on how well we know him.
No. Actually, I know ex-Presidents are called President after retirement. But they are not, in general, still practicing 'politics'. It is an
honorific earned for their retirement. If he were to run and win a seat in the Senate, he would be called Senator.
What do we call former soldiers?
Enlisted men are called Mr, Mrs. or Ms depending.
Higher ranks often use their retirement rank with the parenthetical "(Ret)" after it. example : Admiral Joe Blogs, USN (Ret). They are no longer
practicing their profession and using the honorific in a dishonorable way.
What do we call former doctors after retirement?
Doctor is an honorific earned by achievement, not by practicing a profession. That achievement is not canceled out by retirement (unless, of course,
the doctor is forced to retire due to malpractice or something). Medical Doctors practicing a specialty often don't even use the 'Doctor'
honorific, even though they have earned it and then some. So they are just called 'Mister' whenever.
What point was rnaa trying to make about the OP and the video?
Only that he has been a TV personality LONGER than he was a judge and the legal profession doesn't like people who are not judges calling themselves
judges as a kind of false advertising. How does that saying go? Oh, yeah.
Them that can, do. Them that can't, teach. Them that can't teach, become consultants.
He clearly didn't see a life's calling as a judge, and decided that he didn't have it in him to advance beyond the New Jersey Superior Court.
Possibly he noticed that his anti-Constitutional viewpoint was a rather large disadvantage to an advanced career on the bench. That is a good thing
that he could recognize that and move on to something he could be better at in his opinion. But he made a career choice that he wasn't going to be a
judge anymore. He is not retired, he is not a judge. If he is anything, he is an TV Analyst. Period.
I'm OK with him having opinions, I disagree with many of them, but at least he has thought about the issues and is trying to destroy the Constitution
with open eyes. Which is more than you can say about most of his kneejerk followers.
The fact that greater minds than mine (or his) tend to disagree vehemently with his anti-Constitutional viewpoint says much.
