The 84-year-old Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has put her foot down. She is not stepping down from her position on the Supreme Court anytime soon.
Ginsburg has been the subject of rumors that have said the octogenarian would retire during Donald Trump’s tenure as president, leaving an empty spot for him to fill. Ginsburg, also known as the ‘Notorious R. B. G’ among her supporters, has served on the court for 24 years since former President Bill Clinton appointed her in 1993.
When asked Friday whether or not she was contemplating retirement, Ginsburg said: ‘My answer is as long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it.’ The 84-year-old justice was talking to US Appeals Court Judge Ann Williams at an event sponsored by Equal Justice Works.
Ginsburg may have quite a different opinion from others on what ‘full steam’ means, considering she fell asleep during liberal hero Barack Obama’s state of the union address.
