US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doubled-down on previous comments she made last year, telling a Women’s Conference over the weekend that she had “no doubt” that Trump’s sexist and “macho” attitude cost Clinton the 2016 presidential election.
Ginsburg was speaking at New York’s Columbia University on Sunday when she was asked to “clarify” remarks she made during the general election last fall, where she claimed misogyny was a “major factor” in Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat to Donald Trump.
“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized,” Ginsburg told the crowd.
“I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part,” she added.
Then-candidate Trump called-out Ginsburg for her comments last July, saying “Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!”

MORE EXCUSES: Hillary Blames 'Creepy' Trump for Poor Debate Performance
Hillary Clinton released an excerpt from her new book on MSNBC Wednesday, where the failed democratic nominee viciously attacked “creepy” Donald Trump; adding that her republican opponent made her “skin crawl” during the Presidential debates.
The excerpt from ‘What Happened’ revealed the former Secretary of State’s inner-most thoughts during the televised town hall formatted debate, saying then-candidate Trump was “literally breathing down my neck.”
“This is not ok, I thought. It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me,” said Clinton. “No matter where I walked he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled,” she writes.
Clinton adds that she then faced two choices: ignore her opponent and continue the debate or turn around and tell him to “get away.”
“Do you stay calm, keep smiling, and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep, get away from me.'” asked Hillary.
“I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with difficult men trying to throw me off,” she added. “I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard.”
Hillary’s memoir, “What Happened,” is available September 12th.
OUCH: Sarah Huckabee Sanders CRUSHES Hillary's Excuses Tour On-Air
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hold back when asked to weigh-in on Hillary Clinton’s new tell-all memoir; blasting the former Secretary of State for “misunderstanding” President Trump and “placing blame” on others when she should be “accepting it herself.”
Huckabee Sanders was speaking with reporters at a White House press briefing when she was asked to comment on remarks Hillary made during her months long excuses tour.
“[Hillary Clinton] said she wished that President Trump was the President for all Americans. Do you have any reaction to this characterization of the President’s role in the White House?” asked one journalist.
“I think that type of misunderstanding of who this President is, and frankly, a misunderstanding of what he’s been doing, is exactly one of the reasons that Hillary Clinton is not the President, and is instead pushing a book with a lot of false narratives and a lot of false accusations; placing blame on a lot of other people instead of accepting it herself,” the Press Secretary fired-back.
For months, Hillary Clinton has been blaming external factors for her stunning defeat to Donald Trump last fall, lashing-out at prominent democrats, the DNC, Russian collusion, the FBI, sexism, and more.
