A Utah judge was suspended for six months after he criticized Trump in court and on Facebook

(CNN)A judge in Utah has been suspended without pay for six months after he made critical comments about President Donald Trump in court and on his Facebook page.

According to the ruling by the Utah Supreme Court, Judge Michael Kwan's Facebook posts were "laden with blunt, and sometimes indelicate, criticism" of Trump.

The comments were made over the last several years, during both Trump's 2016 campaign and after he became President. They included a reference to the "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump made crude comments about women and in one instance referred to his presidency as a "fascist takeover."

Utah's Supreme Court concluded Kwan's remarks violated the state's Code of Judicial Conduct and could potentially undermine the judiciary's integrity and impartiality.

3. So when is Trump going to be suspended for accusing the FBI agents of treason?

Oh, right, literally everyone else in the country is held to a higher standard than the president.

4. Make of it what you will

But unlike state court judges, there's no Presidential Fitness Commission, nor is there a body that reviews the comments, behavior, and financial ties of Supreme Court Justices.

5. He's the freest dude in America (right now). He can say anything to anyone...

...and get away with it.
-The goddamned *president of the United States* can sit on his massive butt all day, tweeting while watching Fox, and get away with it.
-He can publicly suck up to the world’s most brutal dictators (often in private) and get away with it.
-He can spout nothing but lies and get away with it. -Video and testimony from his recent past reveals an incredibly reprehensible attitude and behavior toward women, and he can get away with it.
-He can say/tweet the most insane, false, inflammatory shit and get away with it.
-He can deliberately pit Americans against other Americans and get away with it.
-He can make the world markets take a dive with his tariff bullshit and get away with it.
-He can be rude, crude, vulgar and idiotic all day and every day, and get away with it.

There isn’t ONE other person in this entire country who could behave like 45 and not face swift unemployment, or dismissal from all professional societies and organizations, or banishment from family and friends.
