Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is skipping Trump’s first state of the union address this week, proving once again that she is biased against the president. She will have to recuse herself if the court ever has to decide something based on Trump.
The Hill reports:
Ginsburg will not attend Trump’s first State of the Union
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be in attendance at President Trump’s first State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Ginsburg is scheduled to be at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island for her speaking tour on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press.
While Ginsburg has been critical of Trump in the past, her talk at the university was announced last August.
Ginsburg did not attend Trump’s address to Congress last year after attending all eight of former President Obama’s addresses.
Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas also did not attend Trump’s address.
It is not abnormal for Supreme Court justices to skip out on the annual presidential addresses.
It’s just as well that Ginsburg is not attending. She probably wouldn’t be able to stay awake through the entire event. Perhaps it’s time for her to consider retiring.
You may recall a famous photo of her napping during an address from Obama.
