Çhief Justice John Roberts is criticizing as “inappropriate" and “dangerous" comments Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer made about Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Roberts was responding to Schumer's remarks at a rally outside the court while a high-profile abortion case was being argued inside. A video of that rally shows Schumer saying, “You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions,'' and naming the two Supreme Court appointees of President Donald Trump.

A spokesman says Schumer was referring to “the political price Senate Republicans will pay.”
