Here are some of Ginsburg’s remarks that caused the controversy. Notice that in all of her comments there is not one fact. I take that back, she did say that there is nothing in the constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year. O.k. that is a fact but it does nothing in terms of supporting an argument. The rest of this is about what I would get out of a high school student. This is a lady who is so impressed with herself that she expects to be deemed right, just by virtue of opening her mouth.
If we treat people like little Gods, they are likely to take us seriously. Smart people are the easiest for me to debate because they are likely to be intellectually lazy.
“I can’t imagine what this place (the Supreme Court) would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” Ruth Ginsburg
“Trump is a faker,” she vented in chambers on Monday, “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head. … He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.” Ruth Ginsburg
“That’s their job. There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.” Ruth Ginsburg
“Think what would have happened had Justice Scalia remained with us,” Ruth Ginsburg
“I’d love to see Citizens United overruled,” Ruth Ginsburg
Every now and then a person’s true nature comes out. Each Supreme Court Justice is only an ambitious individual who wants more than anything else to shape the world according to his wishes. Ginsburg is not different than the others. She just lost control and let everyone know who she really is.
