RBG, 85, Refuses to Retire from SCOTUS

With a hefty six-figure salary and naps on the daily agenda, it’s not surprising that 85-year-old U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg refuses to retire. Her job commitment, however, has nothing to do with the benefits and everything to do with spiting President Donald Trump. Instead, the possibility of a Democrat appointee has her thinking she’s got “at least five more years.” President Trump fired back via Twitter regarding her comments made during a CNN interview: “Her mind is shot–resign!” A more substantive issue at hand is Canon 5 of the Code of Conduct, which says a federal “judge should not publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.” RBG has violated that numerous times. In other words, she’s a typically hypocritical leftist.

Here’s more from BPR…

U.S. Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, refuses to retire and wants to stay on the bench for another five years. Not because she loves her job, but because she apparently wants to spite President Trump.

“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg told CNN on July 29. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, stepped down when he was 90, so think I have at least five more years.”

Ginsburg, a liberal, was appointed in 1994 by Bill Clinton. Ginsburg previously suggested that she would have retired this year if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency.

Ginsburg is now digging in her brittle heels amid liberal hysteria that President Donald Trump will get to appoint three justices to the U.S. Supreme Court when she retires.

In 2017, Trump appointed 50-year-old Neil Gorsuch to SCOTUS. He recently nominated appellate court judge Brett Kavanaugh, age 53, to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who’s retiring.
