President Donald Trump railed against Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Twitter late on Monday, demanding that the two liberal justices recuse themselves from cases involving the president and "Trump-related matters." The move came shortly after Sotomayor wrote a dissenting opinion effectively accusing her conservative colleagues of granting favors to the president.

"This is a terrible thing to say," Trump wrote in a pair of tweets that misspelled Ginsburg's name. "Trying to 'shame' some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg [sic] when she called me a 'faker.' Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump-related, matters!"

"Its cries of urgency ring increasingly hollow."
