Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg came forth this Monday to claim that she believed it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to “get by the macho atmosphere” that was dominating the 2016 presidential election.
CNN’s Poppy Harlow questioned Ginsburg at an event at Columbia University Sunday to address her remarks last year that sexism was a “major factor” during the election.
“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no men would have been criticized,” Ginsburg said.
“I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer the same way I did, yes that sexism played a prominent part,” she added.
Harlow then questioned the justice if America wasn’t ready for a female president.
“I think we were and will be the next time,” Ginsburg said.
“Anyway we should be careful about getting me too much into the political arena,” she added, to laughs.
Ginsburg, who has personally branded herself as a “flaming female litigator,” apologized after she attacked Trump during his candidacy.
She explained to The New York Times that she “can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president.”
Journalist Carl Bernstein came forth this Sunday to express his doubts that President Trump will willingly sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, noting the president’s “compulsive, continual lying.
“I think many of us will believe it when we see him sit down with Mueller. Look, we have no reason to believe almost anything that [Trump] says. What is so extraordinary about him and his presidency is the incessant, compulsive, continual lying,” Bernstein declared on CNN.
“We’ve never had a president who lies like this, certainly in the modern era. Even Nixon,” the Watergate reporter continued.
