Ruth And Justice
Supreme Court Justice and gender equality pioneer Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87 on Friday. The immediate response online and elsewhere was a mix of grief, fear, gratitude and determination.Within 24 hours of her passing, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump both said they would move forward to replace her, despite her dying wish as well as past precedent set in 2016. We talk to constitutional law professor Leah Litman about Ginsburg’s legacy and what’s next for the court. And in headlines: Tiktok and WeChat live to die another day, the US passes 200,000 Covid-19 deaths, and why people are buying flights to nowhere.Show links:votesaveamerica.com/getmitchstrictscrutinypodcast.com
