Should Chuck Schumer resign?

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts gave a rare rebuke to Senatore Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after Schumer made what Roberts called "threatening" statements about Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. 

Speaking in front of a rally for abortion rights supporters, Schumer said "I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions." President Trump immediately pounced, denouncing Schumer for his statement.

However, many are standing by Schumer, arguing what he said is not a threat. Many people feel strongly about abortion rights, and they are worried that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch will ultimately decide to peel back those protections for women. At another level, Trump has leveled countless attacks against Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. He went further than Schumer and attacked their credibility, calling on the two women to recuse themselves for being biased against the President himself. What do you think?

President Trump himself has attacked the legitimacy of the Supreme Court, and specific Supreme Court Justices. It is highly hypocritical of Roberts to only defend the conservative Justices—the ones Trump himself put in place—while not saying a word when the President attacks the court.

Roberts called Schumer's statement "irresponsible" and "dangerous."

He went on to say in his statement:

Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter

Many think Schumer should have known better. Just because the President speaks in such terms does not mean that it is okay for Schumer to stoop down to his level. Others think that Trump's attacks on the Supreme Court are fine, but it's wrong for Schumer to do it.
