JUSTICE GINSBURG: ‘No doubt’ Hillary lost due to sexism
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks that if Hillary Clinton was a man, she may have won the 2016 election.
Ginsburg offered her take on the role sexism allegedly played in Clinton’s humiliating defeat to Donald Trump last year during an interview with CBS’ Charlie Rose on Tuesday.
“When do you think we’ll see a woman as president?” Rose asked Ginsburg.
“I think we came pretty close,” she said.
“Yes. Do you think sexism played a role in that campaign?” Rose pressed.
“Do I think so?” she asked.
“Yes,” Rose said.
“I have no doubt that it did,” Ginsburg said to applause.
Rose wanted more.
“Do you think that it was decisive?” he questioned. “In other words, if Hillary Clinton had been a man she would have won that election going away.”
“There were so many things that might have been decisive, but that was a major, major factor,” she said.
