Must everyone, including, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg jump on the “If Donald Trump wins the presidency, I’m outta here bandwagon?”
They’re all dying for relevancy and they’re all elitists with money who played a major role in America journey beneath the sewer which renders them full of crap and yes, that includes Justice Ginsburg who interview with the New York Times entertained the thought of absconding to New Zealand should Donald Trump become POTUS45.

I suspect that the Supreme Court justice was merely being mischievous but taking into account the rulings that have come down these past few years from the Supreme Court, I may have that wrong.
