Justice Ginsburg SLAMS Half The Country – Blames ‘Macho Atmosphere’ And ‘Sexism’ For Trump’s 2016 Win

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg blamed “sexism” and a “macho atmosphere” for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election defeat.

At a Columbia University Women’s Conference Sunday, Ginsburg was asked to clarify a comment she made in September 2016 on PBS, where she said sexism “no doubt” was one of the reasons Clinton lost to Trump. Ginsburg said she still believed sexism interfered with the election, adding that no man could have possibly have been criticized the way Clinton acted.

“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized,” Ginsburg said Sunday. “I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part.”

Ginsburg has continued to criticize Trump since he won the Republican nomination for president, which sparked a tweet from then-candidate Trump in July 2016.

“Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me,” Trump tweeted. “Her mind is shot — resign!”

    Hillary Clinton lost on her own merits!!! “Losers” always have to someone or something to blame to justify their lost (be it politics, sports, life) Respectable people can lose graciously and then aren’t considered “losers”. Just remember when you start pointing at others there’s always more fingers pointing back at you. Grow up, get over it and move on

    Ginsburg’s mind has deteriorated into dementia, and it is time that she retires herself from the Supreme Court. She has lost her mental ability to make constitutional and legal judgement in any of her decisions. She, by her listed quote, has proved that she is biased, and would make decisions based on her bias, not the law. It’s past time for her to resign, and she needs to be replaced.
