Ginsburg's Scorn: "Terrible Things Have Happened in the US... Not the Best of Times"

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."

While speaking to the BBC, Ginsburg united with mainstream media outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times and justified them as trustworthy sources who "tell the public the ways things are."

"Some terrible things have happened in the United States but one can only hope that we learn from those bad things," she said.

Ginsburg said she was excited by the Women's March in Washington, D.C. after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, a protest in which one woman expressed thoughts of blowing up the White House.

"I've never seen such a demonstration - both the numbers and the rapport of the people in that crowd... So yes, we are not experiencing the best times but there is there is reason to hope that that we will see a better day," she said of the protest.

During last year's presidential cycle, Ginsburg openly campaigned against President Trump saying "he is a faker."

"He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. ... How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that," she said in July of 2016.
