Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Women 'here to stay' on the Supreme Court

Ginsburg US 'not experiencing the best of times'

Citing Justice John Paul Stevens's retirement at age 90, the U.S. Supreme Court's reigning liberal icon, 83-year-old Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg, told a BBC interviewer that she still "has a way to go" in her career.

The White House has said that the president will soon unveil a revised order after the first one was blocked by federal courts.

During a wide-ranging event Thursday following the launch of a new book, the justice said the United States is "not as mindful" of values, like the free exchange of ideas and a tolerant outlook on immigrants.

Candidate Macron Moves Forward in Voting Intentions in France
French expats living in London have been told by one of the candidates in the Presidential election to move back to France. The far-right chief also vowed not to allow her country be "diminished, isolated, and wholly dependent on the EU".

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. Ginsburg later backpedaled from those remarks, calling them "ill-advised" comments.

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. And when the pendulum swings too far in one direction it will go back", Ginsburg said.

Unlike her Supreme Court colleagues who have avoided political commentary, the Bill Clinton appointee has made no secret of her dislike for the real-estate developer. She mentioned US internment camps of Japanese Americans during World War II.

"[W] e are not experiencing the best times, but there is reason to hope that that we will see a better day".

In July, she criticized Trump in three separate media interviews. In terms of the country's future, she's optimistic. Ginsburg reassured the receptive audience that she was "feeling just fine", attributing her good health to hour-long, twice-weekly sessions with her personal trainer, who keeps her in shape with "something called a plank" and "very real" push-ups.

In an interview with the BBC's "Newsnight" on Thursday, Ginsberg defended the importance of a free press in the US, saying the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in the 1970s evidenced the necessity of journalists. "What will be next year?" she said.
