U.S. Republican presidential contender Donald Trump called on Wednesday for the resignation of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, describing her as mentally unfit after she lambasted him in a series of media interviews.
In interviews this week, Ginsburg told CNN she viewed Trump as a "faker" and said she was worried about the country's future if he won the White House in November.
Her comments have sparked a firestorm of criticism and have enraged Republicans. Republican House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, in a CNN interview on Tuesday, called Ginsburg's comments "biased and out of the realm."
Trump, who has called Ginsburg's comments inappropriate, stepped up his criticism on Wednesday in a Twitter post.
Ginsburg, 83, had "embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements," he said, adding, "Her mind is shot - resign."
This means that the Justices hold office as long as they choose and can only be removed from office by impeachment. The only Justice to be impeached was Associate Justice Samuel Chase in 1805. The House of Representatives passed Articles of Impeachment against him; however, he was acquitted by the Senate.
How do you go about removing a Supreme Court justice....

That is why everybody, pro or con Trump, listens to what he is saying. He is shining a beacon of light on the corruption, cronyism, and flagrant abuse of power coming out of Washington, D.C. And he is mincing no words.
