Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ role as the court’s new swing vote has become abundantly apparent in recent weeks, as he has been the deciding justice in several high-profile 5-4 decisions in which he sided with the court’s liberal bloc -- providing hope for Democrats and angering Republicans.

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy blasted Roberts for flip-flopping on the issue after siding with the conservative bloc just fours year ago.

He flip-flopped like a banked catfish."

“Over recent years, more and more, Chief Justice Roberts has been playing games with the court to achieve the policy outcomes he desires,” Cruz said recently on the Senate floor in a speech slamming the recent decision on Obama's executive amnesty, adding: "This is becoming a pattern."

John Roberts is an empty black robe who wants to be loved by liberals who believe in legislating from the bench. Mr. Chief Justice, if you want to be a legislator, resign and run for Congress. But at any rate, just resign! https://t.co/jqrLvfgAZq— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) June 29, 2020
