    Ruth Bader Ginsburg: ‘I can’t imagine what the country would be’ under President Trump

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently offered a surprisingly blunt assessment of Donald Trump.


    In an interview with the New York Times published Sunday, Ginsburg implied that the presumptive GOP nominee would do lasting harm to the Supreme Court if elected.


    “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.”


    The left-leaning jurist also joked that if Trump were elected, it would be time for her “to move to New Zealand.”


    Ginsburg’s interview with the Times’ Adam Liptak, conducted last Friday, is striking because Supreme Court justices rarely opine publicly on campaign politics. When justices give interviews to news outlets, it’s typically to promote a book.


    But Ginsburg apparently feels no such constraints. She told Liptak that she would remain on the Supreme Court “as long as I can do it full steam,” but also said the next president could leave a significant imprint on the makeup of the court. Ginsburg, 83, noted the ages of fellow Justices Anthony Kennedy and Stephen Breyer.


    “Kennedy is about to turn 80,” she said, “Breyer is going to turn 78.”


    Ginsburg also weighed in on the vacant seat on the Supreme Court. Justice Antonin Scalia died in February, and President Obama named Judge Merrick Garland to replace him but the Republican-controlled Senate has said it won’t allow a vote to fill Scalia’s until after the election.

    Ginsburg said it was the Senate’s “job” to consider Garland.


    “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year,” she argued.


    She further said that Garland “is about as well-qualified as any nominee to this court.” If confirmed, she said, Garland “would be a great colleague.”

    She is out of touch with reality and should have retired 10 years ago. Let go already...America is moving ON with President Trump without you! Pack your bags and move!

    We will send a postcard from President Trump in the White House and tell her all about it.

    No need to imagine it...and rack your tiny little brain about it!

    This is the one they catch falling asleep on the job all the time.

    Our country under President Trump will be a forward moving nation, bringing our jobs, money and investment capital back home, providing good jobs and safe secure lives for our citizens. Illegal immigration and excess legal immigration will no longer suck our country into a downward spiral of unemployment, poverty and uncontrolled national debt paying for it. Bad trade deals that result in trade deficits for the US instead of trade balances or surpluses will be brought to an end. We'll mind our own business with respect to world affairs except for those matters which are crucial to us as well as others. We will not be nation-building and embroiling our citizens and money in tribal feuds overseas or abroad. It will be an exciting wonderful time for the American People.

    I think she is ready to retire and thought she'd get one last 15 minutes of fame on the way out.

    Politics|Trump Demands Ginsburg Resign for Criticizing Him as Unfit
    New York Times - ‎13 minutes ago‎

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump called Wednesday for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to resign for saying publicly that she feels he is unfit to be president. Lashing out, Trump said the 83-year-old justice's "mind is shot."

    She probably is assuming she'll be retiring during the next presidency. The poor old lady is attempting to influence the elections so Hillary can name her replacement, not Trump.
