If you’ve wondered what an old, bitter liberal with legal power looks like, this is it. I can imagine this is exactly what her face would look like if she was told, “Donald Trump is your new President of the United States.” If I didn’t know who she was and someone showed me this picture, I would say it looks like a character from Harry Potter.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has thrown her hat in the political ring and given her opinion of Republican candidate Donald Trump, and its not pretty. She seems to be convinced that life under Donald Trump in America would be unimaginable for her delicate liberal sensibilities.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg repeats a phrase that her husband spoke, apparently when confronted with catastrophe, which is, “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
I can’t help but wonder why, when liberals say they’re going to move to a different country when Donald Trump gets elected, they never say, “I’m going to move to Mexico!” Actually, they never mention any South American country to move too, only comparative countries to the United States.
How utterly racist of them.
Despite the bitterness in Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s face these days, with the threat of Donald Trump obviously taking a toll, I heard she looked quite pleasant and cheerful back her day:
New York Times reports:
WASHINGTON — Unless they have a book to sell, Supreme Court justices rarely give interviews. Even then, they diligently avoid political topics. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes a different approach.
These days, she is making no secret of what she thinks of a certain presidential candidate.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
It reminded her of something her husband, Martin D. Ginsburg, a prominent tax lawyer who died in 2010, would have said.
“‘Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,’” Justice Ginsburg said, smiling ruefully.
