The Wink

My favorite moment of the speech was visual. After delivering this line — “Because courts must always deliver impartial justice, judges have a duty to faithfully interpret the law, not legislate from the bench.” — the President gave a playful wink to someone sitting up front in the chamber. The camera then cut to the likely target of that wink and the only Supreme Court Justice in the room, Stephen Breyer, who had a tiny smile on his face.
