Joe Biden Calls Ruth Bader Ginsburg A ‘Fierce & Unflinching’ Giant in Her Profession

Joe Biden Calls Ruth Bader Ginsburg A 'Fierce & Unflinching' Giant in Her ProfessionThe presidential aspirant of United State Joe Biden has released a statement following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The long-running justice passed away today, September 18, at the age of 87, due to complications from pancreatic cancer, her family announced.

Mr. Biden, who was on the campaign trail, arrived at New Castle County Airport in Duluth, Minnesota and gave a statement to press there.

“[She was] not only a giant in her own profession, but a beloved figure, and my heart goes out to all those who cared for her and cared about her,” he shared. “She practiced the highest American ideals as a justice — equality and justice under the law. Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for the law. As a young attorney, she persisted, overcoming a lot of obstacles for a woman practicing law in those days … she continued until she moved herself into a position where she could end up changing the law of the land.”

Mr. Biden continued, “It’s hard to believe that it was my honor to preside over her confirmation hearing … She never failed, she was fierce and unflinching in her pursuit of civil and legal right and civil rights of everyone.”

He also spoke of what’s ahead with appointing the next Supreme Court Justice.

“Tonight and in the coming days we should focus on the loss of the justice and her enduring legacy,” he said. “This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That’s the position the United States Senate must take today, and the election’s only 46 days off.”

“I think the fastest justice ever confirmed was 47 days, and the average is closer to 70 days, and so we should do this with full consideration, and that is my hope and expectation of what will happen.”
