Chief Justice Roberts on SCOTUS attending the State of the Union: “I’m not sure why we’re there.”

Dude. Yes.


The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the court — according the requirements of protocol — has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling.

His final word on the issue:

To the extent it has degenerated into a political pep rally, I’m not sure why we’re there.

I don’t imagine he or Alito will be there next year. They’ll likely be joining Scalia and Thomas, who already skip it.
