Ginsburg, a feminist icon for the Left, died in September of 2020 at 87 years old, leaving a vacancy for President Trump to nominate Justice Amy Coney Barrett to take her place on the Court.
Columnist Scott Feinberg called Ginsburg a “hero” whose decision not to retire “helped lead to the destruction” of Roe v. Wade. “Sadly, this will be a big part of her legacy,” he tweeted.
Podcast host Katie Halper mocked the late Justice in a sarcastic tweet. “So glad RBG kept planking instead of retiring from the Supreme Court.”
Rebecca Fishbein, a freelance writer for radical left outlets such as Jezebel and Vice, suggested Ginsburg and even President Barack Obama were responsible for this outcome. Responding to a tweet sent by Obama blasting the Court’s decision, Fishbein wrote, “hm well maybe someone could have convinced rbg to retire.”
