Is this the way a Supreme Court Justice should behave? An ideological fascist shows her disdain for democracy.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to be wearing her infamous “dissent jabot” on the bench Wednesday morning.The move is being widely interpreted as a repudiation of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election a night earlier.
Ginsburg typically wears the collar when issuing dissenting opinions in the court, as she explained to Yahoo News in 2014. But no opinions were read Wednesday.
Ginsburg made headlines over the summer when she publicly criticized Trump before later apologizing.
In an interview with The New York Times in July, she said she “can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president.”
“For the country, it could be four years,” she said. “For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
She later quoted her late husband Martin Ginsburg, saying, “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
