Justice Ruth Bader GinsburgRuth Bader GinsburgFor Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court upholds religious liberty Cardinal Dolan hails Supreme Court decision on churches, COVID-19 Cuomo blames new conservative majority for high court's COVID-19 decision MORE said Sunday she enjoys the way she’s portrayed on “Saturday Night Live” by Kate McKinnon.

“I like the actress who portrayed me. And I would like to say ‘Gins-burn’ sometimes to my colleagues,” she joked.

Ginsburg made the comments while speaking at a Sundance "Cinema Talks" conversation on Sunday.

McKinnon periodically appears as Ginsburg on the show’s Weekend Update segment. She plays the Supreme Court justice as energetic and with a sharp tongue. The character's catchphrase is "that's a Gins-burn," which is usually followed by dancing.


During the Sundance appearance, Ginsburg, 84, said added she plans to remain a Supreme Court justice for as long as she can do the job.

A report earlier this month showed Ginsburg already has hired multiple law clerks for the next few years, an indication she is planning to remain on the Supreme Court bench.
