Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a question for the critics who think she should have stepped down during President Obama's administration: The Supreme Court justice and “liberal lion” defended her 26 years serving on the highest court in the country with NPR's Nina Totenberg at a NYC event on Wednesday. It has been suggested by more than one commentator, including some law professors, that I should have stepped down during President Obama's second term,” said Ginsburg, 86, as reported by CNBC. When that suggestion is made, I ask the question: Who do you think that the President could nominate that could get through the Republican Senate?

Conservative pundit Buck Sexton seemingly thought on Thursday afternoon that he was in a safe space to mock 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg by appearing on Fox News. He apparently thought wrong.While sitting in as the lone male guest-host of Outnumbered-a woman-led daytime talk show-Sexton joined forces with co-hosts Dagen McDowell and Melissa Francis in ridiculing NBC News for launching a “climate confessions” section.“Climate change is a religious belief for people who think they’re too smart for religion,” Sexton declared. “They’re asking for forgiveness. Do you think there is a world where it makes a difference?”After Francis took an additional shot at NBC for their climate-change section, asserting that people “really don’t love sanctimony,” Sexton took the opportunity to take aim at Thunberg, who recently called on Congress to “listen to the scientists” on climate change.“The biggest weakness this stuff always has is the spokespersons for this movement. They also have this young girl who is, what, 16?

Dagen McDowell added: “She’s a kid!”Sexton, meanwhile, insisted he was not picking on Thurnberg but just expressing that he felt it was ridiculous for her to testify about climate change in front of Congress, prompting more shout-downs from the panel.“No kid bashing,” Francis declared.Liberal co-host Jessica Tarlov reiterated Francis’ point, further noting that Sexton shouldn’t be so cavalier to ridicule a “kid who is more alert to the challenges facing our planet than a great number of people.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu skillfully "played" US President Donald Trump by plying him with inaccurate information, former secretary of state Rex Tillerson said. Netanyahu, who is fighting for his political life after close elections, was "a bit Machiavellian" and would share "misinformation" with the United States, according to Trump's former top diplomat. Tillerson, who was fired by Trump last year, made the observations during a forum Tuesday at Harvard University as reported by The Harvard Gazette, the university's official news outlet.
