Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn't mention Trump in her first speech after his SCOTUS nomination


UPDATE 12:11 p.m.:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not mention President Trump or Neil Gorsuch in her first public speech after Trump nominated Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Her conversation at Virginia Military Institute focused more on how she affected the school.

Rewatch Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's speech her. 

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will speak publicly to her biographers at Virginia Military Institute on Wednesday at 11:15 a.m.

Ginsburg is a known Trump critic, sparking a war of words with the president when he was still running for office. She said she "could not imagine" a Trump presidency and called him a "faker." Trump, in turn, said her "mind was shot" and called for her to resign. She later apologized for her remarks. 

Col. Stewart MacInnis, VMI's communications director, said he didn't know what Ginsburg would be talking about aside from her impact on the school, WDBJ reports.

Ginsburg wrote a court opinion requiring the institute to allow women to enroll.

But it's likely that at the very least, Trump's pick for her new colleague, Neil Gorsuch, will come up
