Huma Abedin’s Body Language Showed Long Time Disgust-Finally Kicks Serial Sexting Weiner to the Curb

When I saw the documentary “Weiner” about Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal and how he attempted to run for Mayor of NY, I cringed every time his wife Huma appeared on screen. She clearly didn’t want to be there. In fact, her body language screamed “get me out of this relationship.” There was a lot of eye rolling on her part  as well as a great deal of  physical distancing between her and her husband.You could see and feel the tension between them throughout the documentary.

In the above photo of her in the film,  we see her at a group campaign staff meeting, discussing how to spin her husband’s debacle. As you can see, her arms are crossed and she looks disgusted.  He body is tense. Eventually, she walks out of the room, leaving the group  and Weiner to fend for themselves.

Whenever the two were seen on screen together, she often rolled her eyes, didn’t smile, looked sad, and appeared tense. Here you can see the tension in her face, especially in her jaw region. This photo above says it all. It says she is completely disgusted and turned off by her husband and at the time of the film, was  just “standing by her man” mostly for political reasons.

But Abedin finally had enough when she found out that not only was her husband sexting again with other women, but he did in when he was in his bed, sleeping next to his son. The fact that this is now made public has humiliated Huma to the core of her being.

Her statement to the press was   “After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband.

Apparently, Weiner has been sexting a woman from January 2015 until now, when the woman revealed what he was doing- showing off his abs and his crotch, She revealed tghat  they talked about sex.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 11.57.54 PM.png

In one message, Weiner  wrote, “Someone just climbed into my bed.”He then texted the woman a photo showing him in his underwear with erect genitals, as his 5 year old son lay curled up next to him.

While it is one thing to cheat on his wife and sext, it becomes a whole different story when a child’s photo is taken and someone sexts a photo where the son is included . It shows that Weiner has no boundaries and extremely poor judgement.

So why did Anthony Weiner keep sexting women after his wife gave him a second chance? There many reasons:                                                                                                                                      a. He has a compulsive sexting addiction.                                                                                                 b.  He has a need for attention with a variety of women.                                                                      c. The desire to live in the  danger zone on the razor’s edge and sext strangers who could           potentially expose him is thrilling for him.                                                                                      d. He has such self loathe, that subconsciously he wants to sabotage his life.                             e. He’s in a loveless sexless, marriage where his wife is never there because she is at                  Hillary’s  side as opposed to being with him. So this is his sexual outlet.                                 f. He resents Huma and all the fame and  public attention she has  which is a constant                reminder of the fame and public attention he no longer has.                                                         g. He knows that if Hillary should win, Huma will have a major position and that will                  make him feel even worse about himself.                                                                                             h. He is bored and has nothing else to do all day long.                                                                        i. He is depressed and this is a distraction from how bad he feels about his life.

The bottom line is that subconsciously he wanted out of his marriage and finally got his wish. No doubt, Huma feels relieved that she is finally untangled from this Weiner mess. For her, this may be a blessing in disguise. While she may have wanted to dump him earlier, she followed in the footsteps of her mentor Hillary, who was equally as humiliated by her own husband Bill, for years. Like Hillary, Huma was determined to “stand by her man.”

What has happened to Huma has reawoken what happened to Hillary in the past, where people questioned why she didn’t leave Bill after he  publicly humiliated her with so many alleged affairs.

But, in Huma’s case, she could no longer allow Weiner to humiliate her, especially when he included his son in his sexting. Even Donald Trump weighed in with support for Huma as he said,” She is probably better without him.”

 

 

Trump Turns Hillary Passionate and Emotional In Second Half of Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.28.10 PM

With the exception of  Hillary Clinton’s  emotional  and touching entrance when she and  daughter Chelsea looked one another in the eye and both teared up, the first half of Hillary speech was  bland with a monotone cadence. But before she spoke, we were privy to see a side of Hillary we had never seen before. Right after  Chelsea introduced her mother and Hillary came to the stage, we witnessed mother and  daughter sharing  a beautiful, heartfelt, tender moment.

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.31.14 PM

As Hillary took the stage and began to speak, her body language appeared stiff and mechanical.

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.52.32 PM

Whenever  she wanted to express a point or show emotion, instead of raising her vocal inflection, she got louder and louder. Soon it became a monotonous  bore where it was difficult to distinguish major points she was trying to get across.  It all sounded the same, in her staccato delivery/ So  it was not always easy to follow her message.

In terms of her facial language, whenever she got louder and louder to express a point, her eyes widened. It didn’t seem to be congruous with her message. The wide-eyed look,along with the monotone loud cadence at the end of her statements, did not showcase Hillary at her best.

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 11.23.59 PM

Ther monotone cadence and loud endings of sentences during the first half of the speech could put anyone to sleep . In fact, her speech  put Bill to sleep for a little while. In all fairness, he has probably heard her rehearse the speech countless times. Nevertheless, her monotonous droll lulled him to catch a few Z’s .

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.58.38 PM

But  as soon as she began to discuss Donald Trump and why he shouldn’t be the next President, a  completely different Hillary emerged. This Hillary was passionate, exciting, enthusiastic, and had life to her voice . She came alive and showed more emotion than ever before.  Her body language and facial language now matched her words. Unlike before, they were now  all  in synch.

Her message suddenly became clearer. Her zings to Donald Trump were very cleaver. She  said “Instead of making America great again, how about making things in America” when referring to his clothes  being made in China, shirts in Mexico and furniture in Turkey. She certainly made a good point with that statement.

She then said that  someone ” who loses his cool  when baited with a tweet  is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 8.27.24 PM

As she said this the audience roared and suddenly  Hillary became more energized and more passionate. She then began to express more emotion than ever before. Her tones were now inflected and the monotone and shouting  for emphasis was gone.  Her entire demeanor changed. She said what everyone in the audience wanted to hear.

Perhaps her most powerful statement  was personally directed to Donald and what she perceives as his bullying. She said that  as a child she was bullied. Her late mother, who was very near and dear to her heart, told the young Hillary to “pick yourself up and get back in the game and stand up to bullies.” 

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 7.47.51 PM

Bill and Chelsea watched her with pride and when Hillary spoke the words” I accept your nomination for President of the United States,”Bill looked like he was choked up and ready to shed a tear.

After the speech ended with a resounding applause, Bill finally came on stage with her. There was a genuine embrace between the two that lasted quite a while by hugging standards, with Hillary  even rubbing Bill’s back. Witnessing the two of them embrace at that moment, there was no doubt that whatever crises the two of them had been through with Bill’s serial womanizing, all was  in the past. The way Bill held Hillary showed a genuine connection, which was reciprocated by her.

What was also impressive when Bill was on the stage with Hillary was that he did not try to share the limelight with her. Instead,  he let her have her moment and  allowed her to shine.  He  constantly stayed in the background talking to others on the stage and amusing himself with the balloons- especially the larger ones, which he kept throwing around.

Hillary also had some fun with the  balloons and with acknowledging people in the  audience. She was warm. happy, and playful. This was  yet another side of Hillary that we never saw. It made her seem more human and likeable.

 

 

 

 

 

Bernie Sanders Body Language Shows Anger, Passion and Distrust During DNC Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.12 PM

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.19 PM

While Bernie Sanders’s body language showed that he was angry not only about the issues he passionately believes in, his body language showed that he was clearly angry that he was not the nominee.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 9.08.21 PM

He showed that anger through pointing, pursed lips, and lip licking as he reluctantly  supported Hillary.

He openly addressed the elephant in the room and said that he was unhappy that he didn’t get the nomination as he verbalized” I  understand that many people here in this convention hall and around the country are disappointed about the final results of the nominating process. I think it’s fair to say that no one is more disappointed than I am. But to all of our supporters – here and around the country – I hope you take enormous pride in the historical accomplishments we have achieved.”

As he said “This election is about ending the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that we currently experience, the worst it has been since 1928. It is not moral, not acceptable and not sustainable that the top one-tenth of one percent now own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, or that the top 1 percent in recent years has earned 85 percent of all new income. That is unacceptable. That must change” one could not help but think of Hillary  being at  that a “grotesque level of income and wealth inequality ” to which he was referring. After all, Hillary and Bill are one of the richest couples in the world.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.05.57 PM

Deep down, here was no happiness and joy in his speech. He did what he had to do and the only thing he felt good about was that several of the issues  he holds near and dear have now been incorporated into the Democratic Platform.

Whenever he mentioned Hillary’s name he never smiled or showed warmth.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.07.12 PM

While Bernie has usually shown a similar body language and facial expression throughout his campaign, the fact that this was the Democratic convention where she was supposed to be singing Hillary’s praises  speaks volumes. It says that his heart isn’t really into it. While the words are  certainly there, his body language says the complete opposite.

His final statement  is very telling as she says “ Our job now is to see that platform implemented by a Democratic Senate, a Democratic House and a Hillary Clinton presidency – and I am going to do everything I can to make that happen.”

What he is saying is that he is going to make sure that he keeps an eye on the Democratic Party to make sure that all of his issues are implemented  into the Democratic Platform because no doubt, he doesn’t really trust them.  After what happened to him during the campaign,  where  millions Americans voted  and sent in contributions to finance his campaign, turned out for his rallies, and cheered on his promised revolution, little did they know that Bernie never stood a chance. Their time and effort was wasted.

Now leaked  emails have confirmed what he suspected all along- that the  Democratic National Committee decided that Hillary Clinton would be the Presidential nominee long before any votes were cast.

His supporters at the convention appeared to be devastated. Many of them covered their mouth in upset and even cried, as you can see in the photos above.  With knowledge of the leaked emails his supporters are livid.  For many  on the  fence as to whether they were Bernie or Hillary supporters, the rigged campaign may have prompted them to leave the party all together and vote for Trump. Others who were Bernie supporters may feel duped and  so angry at the DNC , that they too may refuse to vote for Hillary.

Even though his parting words were ” Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president and I am proud to stand with her here tonight.” his body language and facial expression showed that he really didn’t believe what he was saying. He wasn’t smiling at all when he made that statement.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 7.55.34 PM.png

In fact ,the only time Bernie cracked a smile was when he was how much love there was on the convention floor for him and people wouldn’t stop clapping or chanting his name. Otherwise he had a sour facial expression throughout his speech. He clearly never smiled when she spoke of Hillary.

His body language and facial expression said that deep  down he believes, as do all of his supporters, that he would make an outstanding president and he would be prouder if he were the nominee instead of Hillary.

 

Obama’s Inappropriate Smile and Disconnected Speech About Munich Massacre Shows Mind Is Elsewhere

Screen Shot 2016-07-23 at 7.07.57 AM

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-23 at 7.07.57 AM

When President Obama addressed a group of law enforcement  agents  and mentioned  the tragedy in Munich, he was completely inappropriate and out of line. His smiling, joking and casual body language and bringing in his personal concerns about his daughter leaving for college,  in the middle of what was supposed to be a  somber moment shows his judgement is lacking and his mind is clearly elsewhere.

No one in leadership or in any political position should act like that and bring their own concerns into the mix when discussing such as tragic and serious issue. This was a horrific incident where young children were massacred, yet he casually brings up his daughter leaving him to go to college as his own personal tragedy.

He  also made absolutely no sense when he spoke.

Screen Shot 2016-07-23 at 7.05.42 AM

He began the speech with phumpering and a lots of uhs, as he was looking down when he  said “it’s a good reminder as I’ve said over the past couple of weeks which is our freedoms, our way of life, our ability to go about our business every day …”

He then looks down and says uh  as you can clearly see that his mind is ready to go someplace else in this extemporaneous  speech sans teleprompter.

He continued with “raising our kids and seeing em grown up, graduate from high school and going to college and about to leave their father.”

He then realizes he is being inappropriate and got off point  as he laughs and with a big smile,  holds his hand up and says  Im sorry Im getting a little too personal  as he scratches his nose.  The nose scratching indicates that he knows what he just did was inappropriate.

A few people in the  audience laughed, which then encouraged the President to repeat what he said and this time show a huge smile  as you can see below as he repeated ” Getting too personal there.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-23 at 6.33.51 AM

Then he says uh as he looks up in order to try to get back on track ,but he was completely off track, as what he said next made no sense.

He said ,That depends on law enforcement, men and women every day , who are under the most adversarial circumstances  imaginable sometimes. “

He was just talking about how we live our life of freedom,  and then he got sidetracked with his own person issue of Malia leaving and then tries to continue where he left  off but obviously forgot what he was previously talking about and and now suddenly talks about  about it being up  law enforcement. What is up to law enforcement? Is the personal freedom we have up to law enforcement or is it up to the Constitution?

People had just been shot in Munich and he makes the above statement, which indicates that his heart wasn’t into what he was saying about what happened in Munich.

It made no sense and shows his mind is clearly elsewhere. There was nothing funny about what he said and the laughter from the audience was no doubt nervous laughter, as they too knew how ridiculous it was to bring up his daughter leaving for college, mid sentence when he was supposed to address what happened in Germany.

What he did spoke volumes about Obama’s state of mind in my view as  is clear that leaving the Office of President cannot come soon enough for him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trump’s Body Language and Voice Show Genuine Compassion, Passion and Power During Republican Nominee Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.22.18 PM

In the past, it was said that Ronald Reagan was the “Great Communicator.” But after listening to Donald Trump’s acceptance speech as the Republican nominee, Reagan  pales in comparison. Reagan with his breathy tone, wasn’t always easy to follow as he often used  a repetitive cadence, whereby much of what he said sounded the same. The communication skills that Donald Trump showed brought realness and genuine connection to whole new level in my view.

In his acceptance speech, Trump showed us all sides of him- sides that we never saw in the past.  He came across as genuine, real, compassionate and passionate as well ,as very angry and passionate about what he perceived as going on in this country.He also gave a plan and solutions and was upfront and direct in his delivery, which made him sound very credible.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.33.46 PM

When a lot of politicians give case histories of people they meet on the political trail and give you the person’s tragic story, too often it seems mechanical, rote, and insincere. When Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz shared these stories in the past, they sounded contrived and disconnected. But  when Trump spoke of the straight A student who was killed by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record, he was clealry moved and it was heartfelt.You sould not only hear it in his voice, you could see it in his facial expression and body language.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.19.16 PM

WhenT rump  first entered the stage,  you could see that he was moved by daughter Ivanka’s speech and rightfully so. When he spoke of his children and how he felt about them as well as his siblings, you could feel how much he loved them, as his entire demeanor changed in terms of his facial expression and body language. There was a softness and tenderness about him.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.30.52 PM

But when he spoke of  the issues and what he planned to do to solve the nation’s problems, there was a genuineness to what he was saying. There was no phoniness or “doubletalk” which we have heard in the  past with so many politicians. Instead, he was straight forward and relayed exactly what he would do in plain and simple terms.
One of the reasons so many have embraced Trump  is that he speaks in a way, so the masses can understand. He speaks in short phrases and often repeats words in that phrase to make a point. It is highly effective in terms of other’s understanding his message. In his acceptance speech, he  spoke from the gut as his words matched his emotions, which matched his body language. When he repeats the words and phrases he does it in a softer tone, so one feels as though he is speaking to you directly.Repetition also causes the listener to process the information better and to remember and  in the long term, remember what he said.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.27.04 PM

Body language wise,he regularly  showed  the palms of his hands, unlike so many of the other candidates and nominees.When one speaks with their hands and shows the palms of their hands, as opposed to the back of their hands it reflects that they are being genuine in their message and honest.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 8.05.13 PM.png

While we saw a lot of Trump anger during the debates and his fighting back at his opponent’s tooth and nail,we did not see any of that personal anger we saw during the campaign. Instead, we saw anger he expressed concerning issues he is passionate about-  police shootings and Hillary’s not being held accountable for having a private server, poor negotiation  deals with various foreign countries, government financial waste, the debt, coal miners not having jobs,  and inner city children having the education system fail them, to name a few examples.

Because  it was more focused and he took the time to explain the issues in greater detail and in a slow precise manner, everything that angered him  seemed justified as reflected by the audience at the convention. As you can see in the photo above, his body language revealed his upset through his jaw movement, which jutted forth. Another indication of his anger was the  finger pointing, which he did often throughout his speech when discussing an issue. The finger pointing  let  us know how angry he was regarding the particular issue and that he would make sure that it was stopped if he was President.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.44.42 PM

Perhaps the most telling facial expression and body language he made during his speech  was the one seen  above. It is a sheepish look and his admitting that since he personally  knew how the system worked  as he worked the system. So who better to fix the system than him.  In sharing this, it showed he was being open, genuine  and had nothing to hide.

He also showed humility- something we had never seen before in the campaign. When he spoke of the evangelicals,he softly said he didn’t think that he deserved their support.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.31.57 PM

When he spoke of solutions the problems he used his entire body and facial expression to be emphatic about what he was saying. He pointed and raised his head up and opened his jaw even more as he slowly said in a staccato manner, his plans for action.

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 7.22.18 PM

There was so many times during his speech that he looked Presidential as his shoulders were squared and his head was up. It was as though he was now  wearing his new mantle and owning it, as the Republican Presidential nominee.

He also showed that he was the consummate motivator as many came away from his speech feeling more  passionate, more energized,  and more angry at the injustices he clearly explained. That often resulted in the audience breaking out in chants, many of which he lead. His final statement resonated with the audience as you could hear a roar after he said that Hillary’s slogan is “I’m With Her.” while his slogan is ” I’m With You- the American People-I am your voice.”

Once again, this is not a political blog and I am not indicating my support of one candidate over another. As a body language and communication expert, my aim is to remain objective and report what observe and what I hear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melania’s Mellifluous Voice and Elegant Composed Body Language During RNC Speech

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.23.44 PM

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 7.23.44 PM

The stunning beauty, Melania Trump, wearing a gorgeous form fitting white dress, made her debut at the Republican Convention’s stage. As far as delivery and body language is concerned, Melania did extremely well, especially since she is not a public speaker, does not often speak in public, and the fact that English is not her native tongue. The tone of her voice was appealing and soothing. She was poised and composed vocally. Her accent in my view, was charming and her cadence, rhythm, and timing when she spoke  were excellent. She spoke with passion and inflection, especially when she spoke of husband Donald and what she believed he could do for the country.

Body language wise, her movements were fluid and elegant. She had a regal appearance with impeccable posture.

There is a  lot of talk about whether or not Melania’s speech was  original or whether it was the same as the speech given by Michelle Obama. It seems that they both spoke about education and their children, which seemed to be a mission on both of their parts. So it may be understandable that both messages may have been similar.

The bottom line is that she did an excellent job.  Should Donald Trump be the next President of the United States, it certainly appears that Melania,  as the First Lady, would handle herself with the same elegance and decorum  as she showed during her  RNC speech .

Once again, this is not a political stance as this is not a political blog. As an objective professional,  I  report what I see as it pertains to body language and what I hear as it pertains to communication patterns.

 

 

 

 

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s  Inappropriate Trump Statements and Passive-Aggressive Non Apology – Removal? 

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 11.54.10 AM

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 11.54.10 AM

This is not a political blog nor am I expressing any political opinion or bias.  As a Body Language and Communication expert, I remain objective and  report what I see from a body language standpoint and what I hear from a communication standpoint.

When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg weighed in with her political opinion and called Presidential Candidate Donald Trump “a faker,” I was shocked by her  very poor judgement. She said , “I can’t imagine what a country would be with Donald Trump as our president. I don’t even want to contemplate that.”  She also said  “A faker…He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment.” 

Her political statement was of great concern to me as I  wondered if this lapse in judgement also affected her ability to be a judge on the Supreme Court and remain unbiased in any of her other decisions.

How could this woman decide on anything that may involve him in the future without being biased?  How will she  conduct herself  should he be elected the next President? What if there was a close  race and something took place like it did with the Florida election recount in 200o with the  Bush and Gore election, where the US Supreme Court  with final ruling, stopped a recount that had been proposed by the Florida Supreme Court ultimately landing in Bush’s favor?  If something similar happened in this election, could she remain unbiased? Would she show more  favor towards Hillary Clinton?

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 11.54.37 AM.png

Another thought I had was whether she was “losing” it or showing signs of dementia. After all these years on the court ,she knows the rules both written and unwritten rules. She knows how to conduct herself and clearly knows that no judge should ever weigh in with their political views. So when Donald Trump responded by saying Ginsberg was ‘ losing it and must be removed from the Supreme Court.”   the same thing crossed my mind.

She knew exactly what she was doing with regard to expressing her feelings about Trump. After all, she did three separate interviews  about him with news organizations since last week.

Then she received harsh backlash on both sides of the political fence. Democrats and Republicans alike, chastised her and were very upset about what she said in the media. Even Speaker Paul Ryan said that her behavior was inappropriate. Of course she regretted her statement when everyone was against her statement.

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 11.59.25 AM.png

Trump  said  that Ginsberg’s comments were “Highly inappropriate and a disgrace to the court.” He then called for  Ginsburg to resign, tweeting “Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!”

No matter what your political beliefs, Trump demanded an apology and rightfully so. Had Ginsberg said the same thing about Hillary, it would be and equally inappropriate comment coming from a Supreme Court Judge.

She didn’t apologize to Trump. Instead, a statement was  issued by the court’s public information office, that Ginsburg seemed to agree with the criticism and was reported to have said that she regretted  her statement.

The statement said ” On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them,” “Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”

The key word here is “ill advised.”  It indicates she is not holding herself accountable but rather blaming someone else for their ill advice to her. That is very telling in that it is a passive-aggressive action.  In making this statement, she is trying to take the onus off of her and place it on someone else  who “ill advised” her. Who was that person who ill advised her? Was it someone in the Clinton campaign? Was it Hillary? Was it a fellow Supreme Court Justice? Was it a family member? Was it one of her  young law clerks? WAs it her hairdresser?

Saying that you regret  your statement is a non-apology. It is very passive-aggressive behavior. Had it been heartfelt, she would have not had the public information office sent out the statement for damage control. Instead, she would have done a presser and appeared throughout the media, just like  she willingly  appeared when she made her scathing comments about Donald Trump on three different media appearances. So clearly, it was a non-heartfelt apology and PR  spin control.

Her statement in my view is a big enough breach of public trust that she should be removed from the Supreme Court or she should resign. Political tensions are high enough without her added fuel to the fire.

 

People already have concerns and criticisms over James Comey and the FBI’s handling of the State Department email situation. In fact the FBI’s credibility was called into question by many. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s refusal to answer questions directly and speak in double talk also made many question her motives and for many her behavior  instilled a lack of confidence in the Justice Department. Many believed that it supported people’s beliefs that the system was rigged. Now,  Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s comments added one more reason why so many people may be losing trust in the system and may feel that the system is rigged in favor of one political candidate over another.

This is a nation who uses a system of checks and balances where all three branches of the government are checked and balance by the others. How can this occur if someone in one of those branches is completely prejudiced and biased?

Supreme Court justices should not insert themselves into the elections and communicate about these matters. In fact, the judicial ethics forbids judges from endorsing or speaking about candidates and that includes the highest court in the land. That is why so many are calling for her resignation from the bench.

Once again, there is no political bias here as I would have done the same blog had Hillary demanded an apology and not received it from Judge Ginsberg.
