Notorious RBG Speaks to Students at Fordham Law School About her Time on the Supreme Court

She has carved out a huge role on the nation’s highest court, even earning a nickname after a rapper. Now we're learning more about what Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks of her two decades on the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Justice spoke about her career during an event at Fordham Law School Tuesday. She also gave her opinion on the current Supreme Court vacancy.

The Senate has refused to act on President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland for months. 

"I think everyone would agree, for a collegial body eight is not a good number," she said. "You need an odd number and all of us hope by the end of the current term we will have a full house."

She did not weigh in on the presidential race though.

Earlier this year the Justice was the center of controversy for criticizing Donald Trump, but later apologized.
