President Trump got an earful as he arrived at the Supreme Court Thursday to pay respects for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A crowd gathered outside loudly booed and chanted “vote him out!” as Trump stood with his arms folded in front of him.
Appearing alongside first lady Melania Trump, the President wore a mask as he stood in front of Ginsburg’s casket, as well as a crowd that appeared upset with his appearance as he vowed to replace her before the November presidential election — a controversial move that goes against Ginsburg’s reported “fervent” dying wish that she “not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Trump’s paying of respects to Ginsburg also comes on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) appearing to gain enough votes earlier this week to proceed with a floor vote to fill Ginsburg’s seat.
