CARMINE SABIA| Opinion| ICYMI 4/3/20| In a stunning move to everyone who knows anything about what is going on in America today. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is snubbing a government order.
Gyms in New York have been shut down for the good of the public health, but that does not mean anything to Justice Ginsburg.
She is continuing to do her daily workouts and having herself and her personal trainer exposed to potentially harmful germs, Breitbart reported.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, is continuing to work out at the Supreme Court’s private gym despite the coronavirus pandemic and D.C.’s stringent stay-at-home orders, her trainer revealed this week.
Her trainer, Bryant Johnson, told Law360 that Ginsburg, who has battled with serious health issues over the years and maintains a status as a four-time cancer survivor, is continuing to participate in her twice-a-week workouts at the Supreme Court’s private facility, even though everything is virtually shut down due to the coronavirus.
“Everybody’s been shut down. The only reason why I didn’t shut the justice down is because, hey, she ain’t having it,” Johnson said. “She has that grandfather status to me and if she wants to train, that‘s the least that I can do.”
“Her choice is, she doesn’t make excuses not to do it,” he added. “So we find ways to do it.”
Johnson suggested that the two are engaging in social distancing and carefully wiping down equipment in order to ensure their safety.
“Well it’s like this: Before I go in, I wipe down every piece of equipment that I think she is going to touch and come in contact with,” Johnson explained. “Then I go back in and wash my hands.”
This is a frightening time in America and it is wise for everyone to remain calm and take the precautions advised by the Centers For Disease Control.
