Eighty-four year old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be ready for retirement but this incident is not the evidence for it:
Justice Ginsburg: Sen. Lindsey Graham one of the ‘women of the Senate’
POSTED AT 7:21 PM ON APRIL 11, 2017 BY JOHN SEXTON
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia were honored Monday by Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. During a speech she gave at the event, Justice Ginsburg described Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the “women of the Senate.”
Justice Ginsburg gave a brief talk about civility and her friendship with the late Justice Scalia. She then made an implied contrast between the era in which she and Scalia were confirmed and the present day. “I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court,” she said. She continued, “The hearing was altogether civil. The vote was 96 to 3. For Justice Scalia the vote was unanimous.
“Let’s hope members of Congress, the members that Allegheny College has already honored, Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain; the women of the Senate, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham. Let’s hope that they and others of good will lead in restoring harmonious workways.”
Perhaps Ms. RBG's speechwriter should enroll in a remedial "Clarity in Communications" class with Sean Spicer, but no, she did not peg Sen. Graham as a woman.
