I find it so strange & dumb that they've already pinned this woman as "Notorious ACB". Regardless of her beliefs & politics, she's her own person and can mold & create that for herself once she's on the court. It's also incredibly unimaginative & disrespectful to what RBG managed to create & inspire around her own person & name.

Sounds like Google and Amazon are testing the waters on pulling support from the politics of the left and right. The government went after Microsoft because Bill Gates gave his windfall profits to his wife for their education foundation not Bill Clinton for his re-election campaign...
