Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doubled down on comments she made last year that sexism "no doubt" played a role in Hillary Clinton's 2016 election defeat.

During a Columbia University Women's Conference event on Sunday, Ginsburg was asked to clarify remarks she made last September, in which she said sexism was a "major, major factor" in how the election played out.

"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 said.

"I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part," she continued.


Oh, what does she know about anything ...?
