SCOTUS Chief Justice Visits Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Chief Justice John Roberts makes a stop in Lexington and talks about everything but his next coworker.

Roberts made reference to hearing cases with only eight justices but did not mention the late Antonin Scalia or the President Trump's nominee to fill his seat, Neil Gorsuch.

 The Chief Justice says the court only rules on about half the number of cases it did when he was a law clerk for then associate justice William Rehnquist.

Roberts also serves as the Chancellor of the Smithsonian Institute, which runs the National Zoo, and joked about the bobcat that escaped from there earlier this week saying "It's not my fault."
