US Supreme Court Justice: "If Trump Wins, It's Time To Move To New Zealand"

• Zero Hedge

In an interview with The New York Times published Sunday, the Supreme Court justice, whose peers traditionally avoid political topics like the plague, said her husband, who died in 2010, would have said, "Now it's time for us to move to New Zealand."

"I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president," she said. "For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don't even want to contemplate that."

As The Hill adds, Ginsburg, 83, said she will not leave her job "as long as I can do it full steam."  But she mentioned that that Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Stephen G. Breyer are no longer young, alluding to the effect the presidential election will have on the court. 

As the NYT adds, her colleagues have said nothing in public about the presidential campaign or about Mr. Obama's stalled nomination of Judge Merrick B. Garland to the Supreme Court.
