Following Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent remarks on Donald Trump — the judge called him a ‘fake’ — it was a nice surprise to see her show up at the RNC. Well, sort of: Kate McKinnon did quite the flawless and hysterical impression during the live ‘SNL’ Weekend Update segment on July 20.
“Let me at him,” Kate McKinnon as the judge jokes to Colin Jost after he asks about her recent comments. “Trump picked a fight with the wrong 200-year-old marionette, baby,” Kate said while throwing punches at the air. “You know, I’ve been doing CrossFit… that’s when I cross my arms and legs and try to fit inside a soup can.”
Donald Trump did respond to the Judge’s recent comments tweeting that Ruth’s “mind is shot.”
Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!

“Oh please thats like the pot calling the kettle black — and I should know, I live inside a kettle…” she said, causing Colin to ask, “Like Tinkerbell?”
“It’s actually her place; she’s actually air B&Bing it while she looks for a Planned Parenthood in Indiana. It’s gonna be a while,” she added cracking up. Through the segment she playfully punched him with “Ant-Man strength,” as he calls it. Later she adds “Gins-burns” to her quotes, dancing after each dig.
“His mind is sleeping with the fishes, but its waking up to a Gins-burned,” she says before breaking into dance moves. Not even Colin can stop laughing! When asking her if she thought she went too far, and she admits she did. “I have no perspective. I’m like a flea — I can jump 40 times my own height. Also you’re never gonna get rid of me. I rode here on a dog, Colin. His name’s Mike Pence and he just got Gins-burn’d.”
Another burn went to Chris Christie, who Colin said maybe Trump would appoint to the Supreme Court. “Please, I’d rather have an empty chair than an empty chair,” she said. Michael Che also chimed in half way through saying, “burn me, burn me!” Much to his dismay, she responded with, “I don’t got time for you, Don Lemon!
