With the death of United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg Democrats across the country have threatened to “burn it down” if Trump tries to fill the vacancy before the election, even though Ginsburg said in 2016 that a President does not stop being a President in their last year in office. Reportedly, her Granddaughter has come forward that she had a last wish of not wanting to be replaced by Trump. So tensions are high, perhaps higher than they were in 2016 when Antonin Scalia died and Barrack Obama wanted to put a justice on the Supreme Court and was denied by a Republican Majority Senate until after the election, whereas Neil Gorsuch was appointed by Trump.
Democrats lose badly, and in this they have not done well, meltdowns of epic proportion are seen throughout Twitter, and Instagram, where people are calling for war, and to burn down the Supreme Court if Trump appoints a judge before the election. With Trump having already put forth a list of potential nominees of which Senators Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton are members of, he has attracted the ire of many liberal leaders. Liberals are insisting that a liberal be nominated to replace Ginsburg, as she was seen as one of the most liberal judges on the court.
Ruth Ginsburg’s work on the bench was by liberal standards exemplary, she stood for LGBQT rights, and was pro-abortion, she was not viewed as a constitutional scholar but as a pioneer of progressive views. While her views were controversial, she was respected by both sides of the political spectrum for her service and her accomplishments.
Democrat Joe Biden has not put forward a list of potential picks as of yet, but one will be expected soon. With his campaign failing on the law and order front, and many seeing him as supporting riots across the country he will want to pick a law and order candidate to try and pull some of his base back after they have left in disgust over the support of the rioting and defunding of the police.
When President Trump was informed of Ginsburg’s passing he was very compassionate and said that she was a great jurist and she will be missed. Trump was very presidential and it was outstanding to see compassion and grace from a man who is seen by the left as having neither, proving them wrong. I have never been a fan of Ruth Ginsburgs, however I do respect her service and he selfless sacrifice toward her goals, she was one tough human, and I have to give her credit.
