Can’t New Years Eve be free from liberal swooning? No. No, it can’t. On NBC’s A Toast to 2018!, celebrities AND network journalists fawned over far-left Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As the last hours of 2018 ticked away, Dateline NBC reporter Andrea Canning gushed over the documentary and feature film on Ginsburg: “I mean, she's 85 years old and everyone's talking about her!”
Dateline NBC’s Dennis Murphy raved, “Woman of the year. Anyone opposed to that?” Well, some conservatives might not be thrilled. Can anyone imagine journalists saying this about a film on the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia?
This is Us actress Chrissy Metz rhapsodized, “She is the bomb!”
A transcript of the New Years Eve exchange is below:

JOSH MANKIEWICZ (Dateline NBC journalist): One of my favorite movies from 2018 was the RBG documentary.
NATALIE MORALES (Today show co-host): RBG. I, of course, had known what she's done, broken through glass ceilings for all of us. But watching that woman work out—
AKBAR GBAJABIAMILA (American Ninja Warrior co-host): She bench presses more than you.
MATT ISEMAN (America Ninja Warrior co-host): She probably does.
