Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke at Rhode Island’s Roger Williams School of Law, skipping President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech Tuesday night. Other justices did the same, including Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas.
In her remarks to the crowd, Ginsburg lamented the partisanship in politics.
“I think it will take great leaders on both sides of the aisle to say, ‘Let’s stop this nonsense and start working for our country the way we should,’” Ginsburg said.
Speaking of partisanship, ABC News’s article failed to mention when Ginsburg criticized the Trump administration over its travel policy late last year, which the media often calls the “travel ban.”
Congressional representatives asked she recuse herself from the case, but she chose not do.
