Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Supreme Court Justice Says Sexism as Major Cause for Clinton’s Loss

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is making a controversial remark about the 2016 presidential election and gender politics.

During an interview Tuesday night with CBS News, Ginsburg asserted that sexism was a “major factor” in Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

When Charlie Rose asked her if sexism played a role in Clinton’s loss, Ginsburg told an applauding audience she had “no doubt that it did.”

“There are so many things that might have been decisive, but that was a major, major factor,” Ginsburg said.

“The more women out there doing things … Women come in all sizes and shapes. To see the entrance of women into places where they were not there before is a hopeful sign,” she stated.

Ginsburg went on to say that she worries Americans are putting basic values, such as liberty, at risk in favor for greater security. She also touted diversity as a great strength for the country.

Supreme Court justices usually stay quiet about their political positions, honoring the theoretically unbiased nature of the country’s highest court.

This precedent, however, has not stopped the liberal Ginsburg from expressing her partisan opinions.

“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said of then-candidate Donald Trump during the presidential election. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. 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.”

She also said during the July 2016 interview, “I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president.”

The remarks were widely criticized by Republicans and Democrats, and Ginsburg eventually gave an apology.

However, she has continued to express herself regarding feminist issues.

During a public appearance earlier this month, she revealed her desire to see every Supreme Court seat filled by a woman.

“There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine,” the 84-year-old associate justice said.
