Stephen Works Out With Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Stephen Works Out With Ruth Bader Ginsburg


IT’S NO SECRET, EVERYBODY KNOWS. I’M A HUGE FAN OF COURT JUSTICE
RUTH BADER GINSBURG. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY CALL HER. THEY CALL HER THE NOTORIOUS
R.B.G. SHE’S A FEMINIST ICON AND A
FAVORITE AMONG THE YOUNG PEOPLE. NOW, AT 85, SHE’S THE OLDEST
JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT, BUT SHE’S MADE IT VERY CLEAR
THAT SHE “HAS NO INTEREST IN RETIRING.”( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WHICH IS GOOD.
JUST– PLEASE, JUST HANG IN
THERE FOR THREE TO SEVEN MORE YEARS. BUT THAT WILL NOT BE A PROBLEM,
BECAUSE SHE STAYS IN SHAPE BECAUSE HER WORKOUT IS SUPER
HARD. WHICH IS SURPRISING. IF I HAD A LIFETIME APPOINTMENT
TO A JOB THAT LET ME WEAR A ROBE, I WOULD DEFINITELY LET
MYSELF GO. IT’S A BLACK MUMU. SO I JUMPED AT THE CHANCE WHEN
JUSTICE GINSBURG INVITED ME DOWN TO WASHINGTON, D.C. TO JOIN HER
WORKOUT. JIM?>>Stephen: I MET RUTH BADER
GINSBURG IN THE GYM OF THE WATERGATE APARTMENTS. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
SITTING DOWN TO TALK WITH US TODAY AND SHOW ME YOUR WORKOUT. FIRST OF ALL, WHAT DO I CALL
YOU? YOU’RE NOT A JUDGE. DO I CALL YOU “YOUR HONOR,” OR
“YOUR BADER GINSHIP”? OR DO I CALL YOU REQUESTED LADY
JUSTICE?”>>YOU CAN JUST CALL ME JUSTICE.>>Stephen: JUST JUSTICE?>>JUST JUSTICE.>>Stephen: JUST JUSTICE. NOW, YOU’RE THE NOTORIOUS R.B.G.>>WHICH IS NAMED AFTER THE–
IT– IT COPIES THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G., A FAMOUS RAPPER.>>Stephen: SURE, BIGGIE.>>AND WHEN PEOPLE ASK, “WHAT DO
YOU HAVE IN COMMON WITH THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G.,” I SAY, “WE
HAVE ONE THING CLEAR IN COMMON, AND THAT IS WE WERE BOTH BORN
AND BRED IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.”>>Stephen: YOU ALSO BOTH LOVE
WORDS. HE’S A RAPPER. YOU LOVE WORDS. YOU’RE ALWAYS– YOU KNOW, YOU’RE
ALWAYS SPITTIN’ YOUR TRUTH.>>YES.>>Stephen: AND BOTH OF YOU ARE
IMPLICATED IN TUPAC’S MURDER.( LAUGHTER )
>>YOU HAVE ADVOCATED FOR
WOMEN’S RIGHT CASES. THE RUMOR IS YOU HAVE IN THE NEW
“OCEANS 8” MOVIE. HAVE YOU SEEN THE POSTER?>>NO.>>Stephen: WAS IT EXCITING? WHAT’S RIHANNA REALLY LIKE?>>I’D LIKE TO FIND OUT. THIS IS THE FIRST I HEARD OF IT.>>Stephen: I HEAR VERY GOOD
THINGS. I WAS TOLD NOT TO ASK HER ABOUT
ANY PENDING CASES BEFORE THE COURT, BUT I JUST TO PRESS HER
ON ONE OF THE MOST DIVISIVE ISSUES FACING OUR COUNTRY. A HOT DOG A SANDWICH?>>YOU’RE ASKING ME? YOU TELL ME WHAT A SANDWICH IS,
AND I’LL TELL YOU IF A HOT DOG IS A SABD WITCH.>>Stephen: A SANDWICH IS TWO
PIECES OF BREAD WITH ALMOST ANY TYPE OF FILLING IN BETWEEN, AS
LONG AS IT’S NOT MORE BREAD.>>YOU SAID TWO PIECES OF BREAD. DOES THAT INCLUDE A ROLL THAT’S
CUT OPEN BUT STILL NOT COMPLETELY?>>Stephen: THAT’S THE CRUX
YOU’VE GOTTEN IMMEDIATELY. THAT’S WHY YOU’RE ON THE SUPREME
COURT. THAT GETS IMMEDIATELY TO THE
QUESTION– DOES THE ROLL NEED TO BE SEPARATED INTO TWO PARTS. BECAUSE A SUB SANDWICH– A SUB
IS NOT SPLIT, AND YET IT IS A SANDWICH.>>YES.>>Stephen: SO HOT DOG IS A
SANDWICH? ON YOUR DEFINITION, YES, IT IS.>>Stephen: WELL PLAYED, LADY
JUSTICE.>>I WANT TO SEE WHAT YOUR
WORKOUT IS, LET’S GET FULLY RIPPED AND EXPLODED. LET’S GET SHREDDED. LET’S GET STUPID STRONG.>>LET’S GO.>>Stephen: WITH THE ORAL
ARGUMENTS OVER… AAAH! AAAH! WE BROUGHT IN HER TRAINER,
BRYANT, SO WE COULD HIT IT. DO YOU EVER LISTEN TO MUSIC TO
GET ALL JACKED UP BEFORE YOU WORK OUT?>>I LISTEN TO MOSTLY OPERA
RECORDINGS.>>Stephen: OH, OKAY. CAN I RECOMMEND A GREAT WORKOUT
SONG. I THINK YOU MIGHT ENGITHIS ONE. ♪ EVERYBODY DANCE NOW ♪
>>Stephen: WOOOO!>>I WOULD NEVER, NEVER EXERCISE
TO THAT NOISE. ♪ ♪ ♪
>>LET’S SHUT– LET’S SHUT IT OFF.>>Stephen: NO? OKAY. WELL, WE COULD LISTEN TO OPERA
TOO. DO YOU EVER LISTEN TO ANYTHING A
LITTLE MORE EXCITING, LIKE THE SOUND OF RAIN? ♪ ♪ ♪
>>Stephen: AM I DOING THIS RIGHT, RIGHT NOW?( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WHILE WE’RE DOWN
HERE, DO YOU WANT TO WRESTLE?>>I DON’T DO WRESTLING. ♪ ♪ ♪
>>Stephen: JUSTICE IS BLIND, BUT YOU KNOW MAN MEAT WHEN YOU
SEE IT! COME ON! WOOO!>>Stephen: I DON’T THINK PAUL
RYAN COULD DO THIS. ♪ ♪ ♪
>>Stephen: DO YOU WANT TO FEEL? DO I WANT TO FEEL THAT?>>PRETTY GOOD.>>Stephen: THANKS!>>Stephen: HOW STRONG ARE YOU
ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT, BECAUSE WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW. BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!>>Stephen: WHAT? I’M CRAMPING. I’M WORKING OUT WITH AN
85-YEAR-OLD WOMAN.>>Stephen: CAN I ASK YOU A
QUESTION, AND I WANT YOU TO GIVE ME AN HONEST ANSWER? ARE YOU JUICING?>>NO.>>Stephen: I HAD REACHED MY
DECISION IN THE CASE OF “ROOEG VERSUS KICKING ASS.” NOT ONLY CAN THE JUSTICE LAST
ANOTHER FIVE YEARS ON THE BENCH. I BELIEVE SHE COULD HAVE KILLED
TUPAC. UP TOP? JUSTICE GINSBERG?>>YES.>>Stephen: HIGH FIVE?
