"Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice."Ginsburg's death gives President Donald Trump a third opportunity to nominate a lifetime appointee to the nation's highest court, which would secure a conservative majority for decades to come.Only the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg had the rare opportunity to see herself become a feminist icon in her own time. At the end of the meal, Ginsburg said the dean had them go around the table and explain why they deserved to take a place at the school that normally would have gone to a man.Even though she graduated top of her class (at Columbia, where she transferred after her husband got a job in New York City), Ginsburg found it impossible to get a job at a law firm or a Supreme Court clerkship because she was a woman. Scalia was her polar opposite ideologically, but the two bridged their differences to create one of the deepest and oddest Supreme Court friendships, frequently going to the opera together and on vacations with their spouses.When Scalia died in 2016, Ginsburg gave a eulogy at his funeral and recalled how Scalia had a hand in helping her get on the court in the first place."When President Clinton was mulling over his first nomination to the Supreme Court, Justice Scalia was asked: 'If you were stranded on a desert island with your new Court colleague, who would you prefer, Larry Tribe or Mario Cuomo?' Scalia answered quickly and distinctly: 'Ruth Bader Ginsburg.' And within days, the president chose me," Ginsburg said. Ginsburg said "the sad irony of today's decision lies in its utter failure to grasp why the VRA has proven effective," and she added that "history repeats itself."Read more: Trump is reportedly 'saving' a seat on the Supreme Court for conservative Amy Barrett in place of Ruth Bader GinsburgIt was this dissent that earned her the nickname "The Notorious R.B.G" (a reference to the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G.) from a Tumblr fan account in 2013, a nickname that she heartily accepted."It seems altogether natural because we have one very important thing in common, the Notorious B.I.G. and me, we were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York," she said during a talk with Charlie Rose in 2017. With much public scrutiny on her physical fitness, Ginsburg in March 2018 invited Stephen Colbert of "The Late Show" to one of her twice-weekly workouts with her personal trainer.But Ginsburg's death opens yet another seat on the nation's highest court for Trump to fill, making him the most influential Supreme Court president since President Ronald Reagan appointed four justices during his two administrations.
