Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reiterated comments she made last year that sexism played a role in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election defeat.
On Sunday at Columbia University Women’s Conference event, Ginsburg was asked to clarify remarks she made last September when she said sexism was a “major, major factor” in how the election played out.
Ginsburg said, “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. I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part.”
During campaign season, Ginsburg was an outspoken critic of Donald Trump. She called Trump a “faker” and accused him of having “no consistency.”
Via Twitter, Trump responded to her “very dumb political statements,” saying “her mind is shot.” He then called for her to resign.
Ginsburg later apologized, saying her comments were “ill-advised.” She continued, “Judges should not talk about political candidates.”
