Kate McKinnon Impersonates Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the RNC Convention
‘Trump picked a fight with the wrong 200-year-old marionette, baby!’
Last week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg broke protocol by commenting on the presidential election. She took shots at then-presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump telling CNN, “He’s a faker. He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment.” Being that Supreme Court justices rarely comment on elections, Ginsburg’s actions were criticized by many, including Trump who called for her resignation.
This morning on MSNBC, Kate McKinnon, one of Saturday Night Live’s breakout cast members and the recent star of Ghostbusters, had some fun with Ginsburg’s remarks. She appeared on a special RNC version of SNL’s Weekend Update starring Colin Jost and Michael Che. “Trump picked a fight with the wrong 200-year-old marionette, baby,” McKinnon said. “You know, I’ve been doing CrossFit,” she told Jost. “That’s when I cross my arms and legs and try to fit inside a soup can.”
