A federal judge has accused President Trump of acting like a lawyer for the Klu Klux Klan and segregationist senators from the Jim Crow era.

“When politicians attack courts as ‘dangerous,’ ‘political,’ and guilty of ‘egregious overreach,’ you can hear the Klan’s lawyers, assailing officers of the court across the South,” said Carlton Wayne Reeves, 55, a judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, as he quoted Trump.

Reeves made the comments at the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was being awarded the law school’s Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal.

The article goes on to state the following:

“When leaders chastise people for merely ‘us[ing] the courts,’ you can hear the Citizens Council, hammering up the names of black petitioners in Yazoo City, [Mississippi].”

“When the powerful accuse courts of opening ‘up our country to potential terrorists,’ you can hear the Southern Manifesto’s authors, smearing the judiciary for simply upholding the rights of black folk. When lawmakers say ‘we should get rid of judges,’ you can hear segregationist senators, writing bills to strip courts of their power.”

    Oh I forgot judges cannot be racist and over reach their their mandate and sworn oath to support the Constitution. None if them legislate From the Bench.

    President Trump didn’t say anything about hanging your black ass from a tree!
    Until he does that, I suggest you keep your black anti white, anti American mouth shut!
    Your biases are as glowing as the whites of your eyes!
    You should be thrown off the bench! You’ve lost your ability to judge! All you see is a problem that no longer exist in the South! It’s all in your head!

      Libby, I believe you have got it completely right, he is just another racist hiding behind his color.

    What a racist jerk, he should not be on the Bench at all.
    If he can’t keep his racist hateful remarks to himself get the Hell out of the country.

    What the hell happened to the laws that put people in jail when they talked negatively about our President?.

    Really? What a joke. How did you get where you are to your position of power if things are so bad here?
