VIDEO: Judge Wears Anti-Trump Pussy Hat In Courtroom!

Travis County Judge Gets Political In Court

Law Newz is reporting that a Judge is getting political in the courtroom. Law Newz reports that,”Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt has been rocking headgear with strong anti-Trump symbolism: The Pussy hat.”

The pussy hat is a highly charged symbol that signals the opposition of President Donald Trump. The hat is in reference to comments that Donald Trump had made over a decade ago while speaking to someone and not realizing that he was being recorded.

From Law Newz:

News of Eckhardt’s fashion choice started spreading with a now-partially deleted Reddit post from late January. KVUE later picked up the story and started looking into it. Can the Texas judge wear a hat with strong political connotations? Well, yes. Because she’s not a judge in the conventional sense.

Meanwhile, the County Attorney office told the outlet they haven’t gotten any complaints, and Judge Eckhardt’s office declined to comment.

Clarification is important here: This Democratic politician is actually Travis County’s top executive, an elected official who leads the Commissioners Court.

Law Newz goes on to report that in large counties, like Travis county, the County Judge no longer exercises judicial functions as a probate or constitutional county court judge, though the office retains the power to conduct marriages and may also be called upon to conduct administrative hearings.

Regardless of what roles or powers this Judge may or may not have it is inappropriate to show support of political ideologies or beliefs in the courtroom.
