(RightWing.org) – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday, September 18. A liberal icon, she lays in repose at the Supreme Court building. On Thursday morning, September 24, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump joined the country to honor the former justice. Their tribute was met with a chorus of disrespectful boos and jeers.

People could be heard shouting “voting him out,” and “honor her wish.” Despite these questionable protests made at an inappropriate time and place, President and Mrs. Trump spent several moments silently standing by Ginsburg’s casket. As the chants grew louder, the two walked back into the court.
Last Friday, Trump described Ginsburg as a woman who “led an amazing life” and ordered flags at half staff. This coming Saturday, the president is expected to announce his nomination to replace Ginsburg on the high court after the former justice’s funeral service.
Trump previously said he would choose a woman. Senate Republicans say they will move quickly to confirm the nominee and expect to have the nominee sworn in before the election.
Stay tuned. The nomination process will be heated, and anything might happen as the country heads toward election day.
