Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered her thoughts Thursday on how historians will view this period of American history.
"An aberration," the 86-year-old justice said when the question was posed to her at an event hosted by Amherst College, the Boston Globe reported.
The event's moderator, Amherst College President Carolyn Martin, asked several other political questions of Ginsburg, who sidestepped controversial topics like the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Instead, she spoke about broader aspects of political life in America today.
“The people in this room gives me hope," Ginsburg replied when Martin asked her what she thinks will fix the divisions in the U.S.
Ginsburg also said she believes that the protection of freedom of expression is going well.
