Insulting the judge is never a good legal strategy

Washington Post:
Trump’s vendetta against federal judge alarms legal experts

Some worry that the presumptive GOP nominee’s personal, racially tinged attacks and his suggestion of taking action against the judge overseeing lawsuits against him indicate a remarkable disregard for judicial independence.
Even if he causes the judge to make a mistake, it will be costly to Trump who will have to get an appealate decision to overturn it and then face the expene of retrying the case.  Trump is treating the judge like everyone who says something he disagrees with and that is a mistake and it could be a very costly one.
