Ginsburg Says People Will See This Time in American Politics as “An Aberration”

Liberal Supreme Court Justice told audience members at an event in Amherst College that she believes in time people will see this time in American politics as “an aberration.”

Ginsburg also suggested right now the “pendulum” has swung too far right and will swing back.

“The pendulum goes too far to the right, it’s going to swing back. The same thing too far to the left.

“I’m hoping to see it swing back in my lifetime.”

With ongoing health and age concerns, Liberal activists are hoping Ginsburg will continue serving through the Trump-era, to prevent Trump from appointing another conservative-leaning Justice.

Liberal activist and actor Alyssa Milano tweeted last November “Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.”

The Independent reports US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said people will look back at this period of American politics as “an aberration”.

The 86-year-old judge made the comment during an event at Amherst College, Massachusetts, according to The Boston Globe.

Although she reportedly skirted around questions pertaining to the topic of Donald Trump’s possible impeachment during the event, when asked by Amherst College president Carolyn Martin how she thought historians would one day regard the current political climate, Ms Ginsburg gave the brief answer of “an aberration”.

The judge also shared her broader thoughts on the status of American politics, and what she expects will happen in the future.

When asked about current extremist political movements, and how they may impact the United States, Ms Ginsburg said: “The pendulum goes too far to the right, it’s going to swing back. The same thing too far to the left.

“I’m hoping to see it swing back in my lifetime.”

As for whether she is hopeful for the future, she added: “Over the long haul, yes.”

Despite recent health problems, the iconic justice has been making numerous public appearances such as this.

In August, the Supreme Court revealed Ms Ginsburg, a four-time cancer survivor, had undergone radiation treatment for a malignant tumour on her pancreas.
