Ginsburg: I'll be a SCOTUS justice for as long as I can

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed on Friday that she does not plan on retiring anytime soon. 

“My answer is as long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it,” Ginsburg said, receiving applause at an Equal Justice Works event. 

“I used to have an answer, it worked for a lot of years. It was Justice Braindeis, when he was appointed he was the same age as I was, 60. And he stayed for 23 years, so I expect to stay at least as long. Well, now I’ve passed Brandeis, I’ve passed Frankfurter,” she said. 

Ginsburg, 84, has served on the Supreme Court for 24 years. 

She is seen as an icon among liberals, who have expressed hope she will stay on the court for the duration of the Trump administration.

    Ginsburg will be carried out feet first.

    The justices should be required to undergo medical examinations to determine whether they are fit for the job.
