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.

SAD: Fake News Media Attempts to Re-Brand Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic as the ‘Trumpvirus’
Maybe Trump derangement syndrome is the real plague.
The fake news media, desperate to protect the Chinese communists who they are in the tank for, are pathetically attempting to re-brand coronavirus as the “Trumpvirus.”
The New York Times published an op/ed on Wednesday, in which author Gail Collins complained that Vice President Mike Pence would be focusing on stopping the spread of coronavirus throughout the United States.
“Yeah, when you think of Mike Pence you maybe don’t think about Pandemic Fighter Supreme. But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana,” Collins wrote.
She added: “Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, ‘Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers.'”
She continued to complain about the President’s behavior in the op/ed from there.
“So the problems are the Democrats and the flu. The answers are Mike Pence and … reminding the public once again that Nancy Pelosi’s district has a big homeless problem,” Collins wrote.
“Earlier in the day Trump argued, via tweet, that despite the expressions of concern by the evil media and “incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades,” the government is perfectly prepared to handle the coronavirus. Which he misspelled “caronavirus.” But nobody’s perfect,” she added.
Collins concluded, in a sad attempt at humor: “Chances are, if the president is encouraged to mix the subjects of coronavirus and Mexico walls, he’ll suddenly announce that we need a barrier much bigger and thicker and more expensive, so it can stop the flow of immigrant germs.”
Conservative pundits Dave Rubin and Ben Shapiro pointed out the insanity of blaming the coronavirus on Trump when the authoritarian nation of China was the clear origin of the global pandemic that now has the entire world on edge.
“So China releases a highly viral and significantly deadly virus and actively shuts down information about it, the virus hits every populated continent…and you’re calling it Trumpvirus?” Shapiro asked incredulously in a Tweet.
“I refuse to link to The NY Times anymore but yes, it’s true, the paper has been infected by Trumpvirus,” Rubin wrote.
“It starts as a standard case of Trump Dernagement (sic) Syndrome, but spreads quickly and takes over the host completely,” he added.
The fake news media is covering for their Chinese masters, and trying to assign all blame on President Trump. Their Trump derangement syndrome and the effect it is having on deranged liberals worldwide may be the worst public health crisis of all.
