Rep. Ralph Norman
Makes Groping Joke About Justice Ginsburg …
Gets Big Laughs

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now the butt of sexual harassment jokes … at least for Rep. Ralph Norman, who dropped one Thursday and kinda killed with it.
The South Carolina Representative was speaking at a Kiwanis Club event in his home state and did his best Shecky Greene. He asked the audience of about 100 people if they’d heard the late-breaking news on Brett Kavanaugh‘s confirmation hearings — then said, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln.”
Make sure to tip your servers, ladies and gentlemen … Ralph will be here all week!!
Seriously though, the joke actually got a lot of laughs from the partial crowd. Aside from clearly mocking Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Ford … he also took an arguably cheap shot at RBG’s 85 years. Norman should be so lucky.
For the record, he’s only 20 years behind RBG. As for any critics of his brand of humor — Norman says, “lighten up.”
1 of 3: My comments earlier today were meant to add a bit of levity to a very serious debate between me and my Democrat opponent and to point to the circus-like atmosphere that Washington DC has become. People really need to learn to lighten up.
