A CNN editor-at large published a hilarious op-ed Friday claiming that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85-years young, is the “face of the Trump resistance.”
“With the Democratic Party largely leaderless and the 2020 presidential primary race still a long way off, one person has served as a rallying point for dispirited Democrats: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” said Chris Cillizza.
At least Cillizza is self-aware. The Democrats are in fact leaderless as they continue to trip over themselves, trying to decide whether they want to embrace their hard-leftist youth like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or whether they want to be the party of dying globalists, a la House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
But Cillizza also tacitly admitted that Ginsburg is not an impartial justice, but rather a Democrat activist in a robe. Unsurprisingly, Democrats are happy to co-opt sacred institutions for their political furtherance.
Of course, America already knew that. Ginsburg’s first act of resistance was her public denunciation of President Donald J. Trump’s candidacy.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” Ginsburg told the New York Times in a July 2016 interview. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that. He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego.”
Cillizza pointed to Ginsburg’s absence from Trump’s 2018 State of the Union speech as a second example of Ginsburg’s valiant fight against Trump on behalf of the Democrats.
“When Ginsburg skipped Trump’s 2018 State of the Union speech, Democrats celebrated — touting it as a sign of her unwillingness to bend to the domineering President,” Cillizza said.
But Ginsburg did not skip the speech in defiance of Trump as CNN suggested. Rather, she had a previous commitment to speak at the Roger Williams School of Law in Rhode Island.
Those two acts of Trump “resistance” combined with the fact that Ginsburg publicly stated that she wants to serve on the Court for another five year (still not long enough to last through a second Trump term) were enough to make Ginsburg the face of the resistance.
That is all it took.
“Though she has yet to return to her overt and public criticism of Trump, Democrats take moments like her skipping of the State of the Union or her insistence that she will serve on the court until she is 90 (and, theoretically, someone other than Trump is President) as acts of defiance,” Cillizza said. “At a time when so few people, in Democrats’ minds, will stand up to Trump’s bullying style of leadership, a tiny octogenarian woman has stepped into the void and seemed to say: I’m not afraid of him at all.”
The level of Trump derangement is indescribable. In the face of such “resistance” it is no wonder he keeps winning.

CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant
How on earth does this man have his own TV show?
On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.
In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:
“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.”
Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”
“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”
Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”
Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.”
Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.
Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.
Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
