President Trump has a knack for repelling hardcore liberals.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be notably missing at President Trump’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee who has been on the nation’s highest court since 1993, will be fulfilling a speaking engagement at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island on the day of the president’s address.
Although Ginsburg has voiced her differences with President Trump in the past, her speaking tour was announced back in August–reducing the likelihood her absence is intended as a protest.
The 84-year-old Justice skipped the president’s address to Congress last year, as did justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas.
The late Antonin Scalia didn’t attend a State of the Union Address from 1997 until his death in 2016.
The outspoken New York billionaire hit back, calling on Ginsburg to resign.
After receiving backlash for breaking Supreme Court by commenting on presidential politics, Ginsburg expressed regret for her remarks.
“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them,” she said at the time.
Ginsburg is unlikely to be missed by the president or his supporters.
She’ll have to find another place to nap! ?

She won’t be missed. If this is a protest, she should have to recuse herself if any issue regarding President Trump is put before the Supreme Court.
