As Trump Pays His Respects to RBG, Protesters Interrupt With ‘Vote Him Out’ Chants

President Trump paid his respects to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Thursday, but was met with protesters who booed and chanted “vote him out.”

The President, joined by his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, and sporting a mask, stood silently before [1] Ginsburg’s flag-draped coffin for a few minutes.

The crowd below abandoned decorum and began booing Trump.

Many individuals even began chants of “vote him out,” a scene which some might view as a particularly tacky display in the presence of a revered figure such as Ginsburg and the President of the United States.

Trump Paid Respects to Ginsburg, The Protesters Disgraced Her Honor

Another chant began after the voting decree, with protesters repeatedly shouting [4] “honor her wish.”

Her wish, as reported by NPR [5], was dictated in a statement to Ginsburg’s granddaughter, Clara Spera.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she reportedly said.

(Ginsburg had previously stated in 2016, however, that the President has the power to choose a nominee [6] even in an election year.)

“The president is elected for four years not three years, so the power he has in year three continues into year four,” she said to a group of law students at Georgetown University in 2016.

Trump’s Dignified Response to Ginsburg’s Death

President Trump has been incredibly respectful since learning of the passing of Justice Ginsburg.

Video of his initial reaction shows a man who appeared to be deeply moved by the news of Ginsburg’s passing.

“She led an amazing life, what else can you say? She was an amazing woman,” Trump remarked.

“Whether you agreed or not she was an amazing woman, who led an amazing life.”

Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews, no fan of the President, praised Trump for his respectful response.

Popular Journos Attack Matthews

Journalists and other anti-Trump figures attacked Matthews’ comment, giving the impression that is never okay to compliment President Trump.

The President has held off on nominating somebody for the vacant seat, instead opting to do so after Ginsburg’s memorial ceremonies have been completed.

Ginsburg’s casket is scheduled to be transported to the National Statuary Hall of the United States Capitol on Friday, where she will lie in state.
