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:

Trump complained about Obama’s Hanukkah party — yet did it even worse himself
President Donald Trump held the official White House Hanukkah party weeks before the holiday was slated to begin on Dec. 22.
Ironically, however, in 2011, Trump attacked President Barack Obama for holding an early Hanukkah party because he would be in Hawaii for the family's annual Christmas celebration.
"Why was the Hanukah celebration held in the White House two weeks early? @BarackObama wants to vacation in Hawaii in late December. Sad," Trump tweeted.
Just a few years later when it was his turn to hold a White House Hanukkah party, Trump did it even earlier than Obama. In 2011, Obama held his party one week before the "eight crazy nights" began. Trump's party is 11 days out from Hanukkah. Trump lit the candles anyway.
Israel heads for third election in a year as deadline to form government expires
Israel is heading for an unprecedented third election within a year after a deadline to create a coalition government ran out at midnight local time on Wednesday and parliament was dissolved.
The prospect of a new election prolongs a political stalemate that has paralysed the government and undermined many citizens' faith in the democratic process.
Initial elections in April were inconclusive and a September re-run of the vote left Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his chief challenger Benny Gantz short of securing the required parliamentary majority to form a government.
‘Flashback much?’: Senator mocked for saying IG report made him feel like he had ‘dropped acid’
“About 25 percent of the way through it I thought I dropped acid. It’s surreal.”
A prominent Republican Senator is getting his own special due process on social media after using his precious time to question U.S. Dept. of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz by saying reading the 434 page report on the FBI's Russia investigation was like dropping acid.
U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) admitted to Horowitz on Wednesday that he had not finished reading the lengthy document but was about 70 percent done. He also appeared to be trying to make the infractions about FISA warrants committed by FBI agents to be seen as unprecedented and historically offensive, in an attempt to serve President Donald Trump by damaging the reputation of the FBI.
