Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Confident We'll Get Out Of This Mess

Justice Ginsburg Doubtful America Is Becoming Great Again

During her appearance at GWU, the 83-year-old justice never mentioned President Trump or his embattled travel ban executive order.

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". "The Women's March ― I've never seen such a demonstration, both the numbers and the rapport of the people in that crowd".

Ginsburg pointed to the Women's March held the day after President Trump's inauguration. That was a time when "anyone who wasn't born and bred in the US was considered an outcast", she said.

The 83-year-old justice recalled the "America first" movement that tried to keep the USA out of World War II in the 1930s and 40s.

Mr. T, Simone Biles Tipped To Appear In The Upcoming Season
According to the gymnast, she would like to be partnered with Sasha Farber. Biles's Olympic teammate Laurie Hernandez won the competition last season.

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.

Ginsburg told the BBC she is optimistic about the future and America's ability to change direction.

"Think of what the press has done in the United States", she said. "There was a lot to ask me", she observed dryly.

During an appearance Thursday at George Washington University, the renowned liberal jurist said she will continue to do her job "as long as I can do it full steam", adding, "When I can't, that will be the time I will step down". "I would say we are not experiencing the best of times".

Korean Air Takes Delivery of First Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Korean Air is scheduled to introduce five 787-9 Dreamliners to its fleet this year with another five joining the fleet by 2019. Other airlines that use the Dreamliner 787-9 include All Nippon Airways, United, British Airways, and about a dozen more.

In an interview with the BBC's "Newsnight" on Thursday, Ginsberg defended the importance of a free press in the USA, saying the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in the 1970s evidenced the necessity of journalists. In an interview with the New York Times, she said she couldn't imagine what the country and the Supreme Court would be like if Trump won.

In July, she criticized Trump in three separate media interviews.

"For the country, it could be four years", she said.

"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.
