The mean tweets are like smelling autumn, so fresh and clear and bringing with it the knowledge that everything around you is shriveling or dying. Ahhh. Schadenfreude.
Critics took aim at the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg when the court declined to strike down a Texas law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat could be detected.
Many argued that Ginsburg, who passed away in September of 2020, should have retired while former President Barack Obama was in office and had a majority in the Senate. That would have ensured that Obama would choose her replacement rather than former President Donald Trump, who replaced Ginsburg just before the 2020 presidential election with Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
The theory was that one more left-leaning judge might have made the difference on the Texas law before it was allowed to take effect on Sept. 1.
