Sasse on Trump Attacking Seattle Judge: ‘We Don’t Have So-Called Judges’
STEPHANOPOULOS: "Let’s talk about – you talked about the three branches of government. And during the campaign, you were actually quite critical of Mr. Trump. You said he displays essentially no understanding of our constitutional system of checks and balances with three separate, but co-equal branches of government. Are we seeing that again with this attack on a so-called federal judge?"
SASSE: "I’ll be honest, I don’t understand language like that. We don’t have so-called judges, we don’t have so-called senators, we don’t have so-called presidents, we have people from three different branches of government who take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution. And it’s important that we do better civics education for our kids. So, we don’t have any so-called judges, we have real judges."
