Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg claimed Sunday that “sexism” and a “macho atmosphere” contributed to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election loss.
Ginsburg, speaking at a Columbia University Women’s Conference event, was asked to elaborate on remarks she made in September, claiming that “sexism” played a major role in the 2016 election.
“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.
“I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part,” she added.
Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!
