Gov. Mike Huckabee poked fun at the eldest U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on his Twitter account Sunday, suggesting it’s “not fair” to criticize her for “skipping” out on President Trump’s first State of the Union address tomorrow.

“It’s not fair that ppl are criticizing Justice Ginsberg for skipping SOTU!” exclaimed Gov. Mike Huckabee in a tweet. “Security concerns wouldn’t allow her to bring CPAP machine into House Chamber.”

 

It appears that Justice Ginsburg will be “skipping” President Trump’s SOTU tomorrow, as Gov. Huckabee jokingly points out, but it won’t be for the reason he suggested.

Justice Ginsburg is scheduled to be in Rhode Island on Tuesday as part of a speaking tour “that is taking her from the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to law schools and synagogues on the East Coast,” reports the Associated Press. “One talk will have her in Rhode Island on Tuesday, meaning she won’t attend the president’s State of the Union speech that night in Washington.”
