Should Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg retire?

As rumors swirl about whether or not Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will retire, the 84-year-old justice has reportedly hired staff through 2020. Many liberals are ecstatic that Ginsburg plans to stay on the Court until a Democratic president can appoint her successor. But others argue Ginsburg needs to retire. She is far too old to remain on the court, and cognitive impairment is a reality of advanced aging. What do you think? 👵🏻

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg put to rest any rumor of her retirement by hiring law clerks through 2020 and signaling to President Trump that she isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Ginsburg, affectionately known by her fans as the “Notorious RBG,” has already hired four clerks for the October 2018 term and four clerks for the October 2019 term, which ends in June 2020, according to CNN. The news hints that Ginsburg is planning to stay on for the coinciding terms.

Many on Twitter were ecstatic to hear the news. A Ginsburg retirement would mean President Trump would get to choose her successor, a decision that would alter the Court for decades.

But Trump has long urged Ginsburg to retire, especially after she made critical comments about him.

Others believe at 84-years-old, it's just time for her to go. It is a reality that cognitive function declines after an individual turns 70, and Ginsburg may no longer have the mental capacity to serve on the Court.
