Just a reminder that Ruth Bader Ginsburg could have casually retired at 80 yrs old under Obama and been replaced by an ultra progressive in their 40s... but they chose not to.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) September 19, 2020
It's not Republicans' or Trump's fault that they get the opportunity to push through a new justice.
Ginsburg could have timed her retirement to perfection in early 2009 when she was 75 years old. At the time, the Democrats had clobbered the Republicans by increasing their majorities in the House and the Senate, and the Magic Negro was just about to heal the planet.
But, nope. She wanted to continue. She had multiple opportunities later on but refused. Apparently, she waited for Clinton to win in 2016 to finally retire. That turned out well. Now, Trump will have his third appointment in only four years. It would be so funny if this new appointment had an impact on the counting or declaration of the election results in November.
2020 is anything but boring!
