Maher made reference to his nickname for the president, “Ruth Bader Biden,” during his Friday episode of Real Talk with Bill Maher. He has used the nickname to imply Biden won’t leave office in a manner similar to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in office in 2020 rather than resigning under a Democratic president and was then replaced by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, a Trump nominee.
“I said he was going to be the Ruth Bader Ginsburg of presidential politics,” Maher said of Biden. “He stayed too long at the fair.”
