White House Defends Justice Ginsburg Over Trump Comments

White House press secretary Josh Earnest refused to condemn Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's comments about Donald Trump, saying that she earned the nickname "Notorious RBG" for a reason.

President Obama’s chief spokesman on Wednesday joked about controversial comments made by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“She didn’t earn the nickname the 'Notorious RBG' for nothing,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters when asked whether her remarks about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump were appropriate.

Even the New York Times thinks that Ginsburg's comments were over the line.
