Absurd CNN Falsely Claims ‘Icon’ Ginsburg Was ‘Not Political’ on Supreme Court

Do the journalists on CNN even listen to themselves talk? Dana Bash joined CNN Newsroom host Ana Cabrera on Thursday to discuss a new biography of Nancy Pelosi that contains a dispute Pelosi she with Mitch McConnell after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg about whether she should lie in state at the Capitol. Bash gushed on how Ginsburg “was and still is an iconic, iconic figure.” The journalist also falsely stated that the justice was “not political very much.” 

Cabrera reported, “Mitch McConnell rejecting her idea for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda and McConnell claimed there was no precedent according to excerpts.” She tried to play the sexist card, “Pelosi says McConnell wasn’t swayed by her argument that RBG had achieved iconic status in American culture, especially among women and girls, are you surprised McConnell refused to give RBG this honor?” 

Bash tried to have it both ways, “You know, in some ways, yes. In more ways, no.” She described Ginsburg as someone who “was and still is an iconic, iconic figure. In pop culture and in American history. Full stop. Never mind how she presented herself on the Court.”

Bash then absurdly claimed, “She was certainly not political very much on the Court, but she was an unabashed liberal and that is not something that stood well or sat well with Mitch McConnell. And, you know, that is clearly where he drew the line.”

The CNN journalist ignored the fact that in 2016, Ginsburg tried to become a political pundit, predicting Democrats would win and eventually being forced to apologize for calling Donald Trump a “faker,” among other things.

She concluded by cheekily implied that Pelosi got the last laugh, “It is interesting, though, that despite the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t lie in state in the rotunda, she still got an honor, and for most people watching the incredible funeral and memorial services for her, they might not know the difference because she was in Statuary Hall, the next hall over in the center of the Capitol but it’s the one that Pelosi controls.”

CNN Newsroom with Ana Cabrera

1:46 PM ET

ANA CABRERA: There’s another revelation from this new book, and Pelosi also spoke about Mitch McConnell rejecting her idea for the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda and McConnell claimed there was no precedent according to excerpts obtained by CNN and Pelosi says McConnell wasn’t swayed by her argument that RBG had achieved iconic status in American culture, especially among women and girls, are you surprised McConnell refused to give RBG this honor? 

DANA BASH: You know, in some ways, yes. In more ways, no. Because, yes RBG was and still is an iconic, iconic figure. In pop culture and in American history. Full stop. Never mind how she presented herself on the Court, but also as we know now from learning about her through CNN films and others that how much she pushed for equal rights for women before she was on the Court. That’s how  she made her name, made her bones in the legal profession. And — but she was certainly not political very much on the Court, but she was an unabashed liberal and that is not something that stood well or sat well with Mitch McConnell. And, you know, that is clearly where he drew the line. It is interesting, though, that despite the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t lie in state in the rotunda, she still got an honor, and for most people watching the incredible funeral and memorial services for her, they might not know the difference because she was in Statuary Hall, the next hall over in the center of the Capitol but it’s the one that Pelosi controls.
