Another conspiracy theorist in President Donald Trump’s cadre of followers is demanding proof that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is still alive by calling the receptionist at the High Court.
The woman who answered the phone patiently explains to the QAnon supporter that RBG is alive and well. In the video, the man cites a Fox News report saying that she had died. Fox News apologized for their error, showing a graphic of her on-screen that listed her birth and death date. The network didn’t report, however, that she had died.
The 85-year-old justice was spotted last week in her box-seats for a performance at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts outside of Washington DC.
You can watch one of the people in the video below:

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist
Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.
In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.
‘Time to go to court’: Former prosecutors explain how Democrats can still uncover whistleblower scandal
The White House is doing whatever it takes to obstruct any investigation into a recent whistleblower complaint, but two former prosecutors have ideas for what Congress should do next.
This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump said something so concerning to a foreign leader that a senior intelligence officer filed a complaint. The officer then filed for whistleblower protections. A series of actions are outlined in the law for the next steps, but Trump and his appointed officials in the White House have worked to stymie the process the law requires.
Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president
A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.
According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.
During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
