Ruth Bader Ginsburg Speaks at Event Hosted by Clinton Foundation in 3rd Public Appearance Since Latest Cancer Treatment
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, spoke at an event hosted by the Clinton Foundation Tuesday evening.
In a rare joint appearance, former president Bill Clinton and Justice Ginsburg shared the stage in Arkansas at the Verizon Arena in Little Rock.
Tuesday evening’s event was Ginsburg’s 3rd public appearance since she received radiation treatment for a “malignant” tumor found on her pancreas on July 31st.
ABC News reported:
“I was so engrossed with her story when we were sitting there that I suddenly felt that I was not interviewing someone for the Supreme Court at all,” Bill Clinton said, “I was just a guy talking to somebody I really liked and that I hoped would be part of our future.”
“I liked her, and I believed in her. I just knew she was the right person for the court,” Clinton said while introducing Ginsburg. “But I have to say in the last 26 years she has far exceeded even my expectations.”
“I’m pleased to say, I’m feeling very good tonight,” she told the audience as she recalled how “very easy” it was to talk to Clinton.
Bill Clinton nominated Ginsburg to the Supreme Court in 1993 and she has been a staunch supporter of the Clintons despite the fact that they are constantly embroiled in scandals.
Ginsburg even defended Hillary Clinton last year and said that “sexism” played a prominent role in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election loss.
