Pro-abortion Justice Ginsburg assures media and admirers she is not retiring

Posted February 26, 2017

During an NPR-moderated event in Washington, Ginsburg hinted at Trump's travel ban, touting what she said "makes America great. the idea of our nation being receptive to all people, welcoming all people".

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has once again invited herself into the public arena, dismissing parts of American history as "terrible" and even saying that the United States is "not experiencing the best of times".

Speaking about the Women's March, Bader Ginsburg told the BBC: "I've never seen such a demonstration-both the numbers and the rapport of the people in that crowd".

The 83-year-old also commented on the impact of the women's march in Washington, which sparked marches across the country and some overseas on the day after Trump's inauguration, according to CBS News.

But she also gave an interview to BBC's "Newsnight" where she praised the Media Elite-specifically, the Washington Post and the New York Times-who are universally hostile to President Donald Trump. That was a time when "anyone who wasn't born and bred in the United States of America was considered an outcast", she said.

"Some awful things have happened in the United States", Ginsburg said.

"I read the Washington Post and the New York Times every day, and I think that the reporters are trying to tell the public the way things are", she said.

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

Ginsburg didn't talk about Trump's controversial executive order barring refugees and citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.

And the media is instrumental in holding the government accountable, she said.

While things look bleak, she believes the record levels of activism at events like last month's Women's March, which may have been the largest protest in USA history, bode well for the future.

"I am the beneficiary myself of my father being able to leave the Old World where the conditions were not good to come here and make a living and raise a family", Ginsburg said.

But she told the BBC that she remains "optimistic in the long run".
