Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Women 'here to stay' on the Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a noted critic of President Trump, suggested that she doesn't believe the country is in good hands but said she is hopeful about the future. At the Washington D.C. event, she added that she was "optimistic in the long run". The interview was connected to a dress rehearsal she attended of Dead Man Walking at the Kennedy Center.

"Think of what the press has done in the United States", she said, referencing Watergate. It is the pendulum.

"When the pendulum swings too far in one direction it will go back", she said.

The 83-year-old justice recalled the "America first" movement that tried to keep the USA out of World War II in the 1930s and 40s.

"That was a terrible mistake".

Ginsburg didn't talk about Trump's controversial executive order barring refugees and citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. "But ultimately the president acknowledged that there was no reason to intern people of Japanese ancestry and Congress passed a bill providing compensation for the people who were interned or their survivors".

Four of 13 free throw attempts? "I take it from the students all the time, you expect it from the students". For the second consecutive night, a famous coach from the state of Kentucky had an issue with the fans.

Ginsburg's judgment had been called into question in the past year, after she made negative remarks about Donald Trump, while he was campaigning for President. Specifically, she cited "the woman's march", which she praised for its "numbers" and "rapport". There was no violence; it was orderly.

"[W] e are not experiencing the best times, but there is reason to hope that that we will see a better day".

Ginsburg, in other words, seemed to be signaling that she adopts the viewpoints and arguments of those (ironically prosperous) dissidents who view America as fundamentally oppressive and in need of serious judicial correction. She said she got to know Gorsuch two years ago during a judicial trip to the United Kingdom.

In an interview with the BBC's "Newsnight" on Thursday, Ginsberg defended the importance of a free press in the US, saying the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in the 1970s evidenced the necessity of journalists. I know I'm OK.

"I'm hopeful however, because my most senior colleague ― the one who most recently retired, Justice John Paul Stevens ― stepped down at age 90".
