Ginsburg: Maybe I Shouldn't Have Called Kaepernick Dumb After All

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the most respected liberal judicial voices in the country. But as a political pundit, she's 0 for 2.

The venerable Supreme Court justice is walking back some harsh comments she's made about the recent national anthem protest in the NFL.

Ginsburg told Yahoo's Katie Couric, "Would I arrest them for doing it? No. I think it's dumb and disrespectful."

Ginsburg now says she wasn't aware of the protest's context and shouldn't have commented.

Ginsburg also had to retreat from controversial comments a few months ago, after she gave a series of interviews slamming Donald Trump as a "faker."
