Jim Bunning (R-KY) spoke out about Ruth Bader Ginzberg’s cancer this weekend, actually predicting he imminent death. There is no excuse for a grown man being so crass. But he is a Republican, and there are many examples of such ugly behavior from that side of the aisle, so many that this should not surprise us one bit.
I’m willing to say it, that a comment implying anyone is dying soon is in very poor taste. That’s what he said Saturday at the Hardin County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner. Evidently predicting the death of someone he doesn’t care for. . . he knows yhat will plat to his base? From the Louisville Courier Jounal:
U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning predicted over the weekend that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would likely be dead from pancreatic cancer within nine months.
During a wide-ranging 30-minute speech on Saturday at the Hardin County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, Bunning said he supports conservative judges ‘and that’s going to be in place very shortly because Ruth Bader Ginsburg ‘¦ has cancer.’
‘Bad cancer. The kind that you don’t get better from,’
