Conservatives hoping Justice Ginsburg would hang up her robe soon are going to be disappointed.
Ginsburg said she plans on staying on the high court for at least five more years.
Breaking Conservative Hearts
Ann Coulter recently got conservatives all wound up about Ginsburg.
Coulter poked the bear by implying the liberal discourse that would take place were Trump able to name her replacement.
At 85 years old, it got people thinking her retirement should be coming up soon.
Ginsburg shut down all hopes, though, while attending a production of “The Originalist” in New York.
Ironically enough, the play is about the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Justice Ginsburg was asked about her future on the Supreme Court, and her answer ripped the heart out of conservatives across the country.
“My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so I think I have at least five more years,” Ginsburg stated.
If her prediction holds true, that would put Ginsburg at 90 herself and well into Trump’s second term, if he were to win.
The age of the current class of justices has had many people asking if we should put some type of term or age limit on Supreme Court Justices.
Ginsburg dismissed the idea, stating, “You can’t set term limits, because to do that you’d have to amend the Constitution.”
“Article 3 says … we hold our offices during good behavior. And most judges are very well behaved,” Ginsburg added.
Funny how a liberal Justice cites the Constitution when it benefits her but seems to want to shred it at every opportunity to further the agenda of our liberal legislators.
The justice, however, did have something nice to say about the late Justice Scalia.
She stated he made her arguments better, as she would often have to rewrite her opinion numerous times based on their back and forth.
“Sometimes, it was like a ping-pong game,” Ginsburg stated.
