In the wake of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s untimely and tragic passing, Donald Trump and his cronies in Congress has sunk to a new level of disgusting and deplorable in an effort to fill her now-vacant seat before the election officially rolls around — one that Trump is slated to lose.
Within ours of Justice Ginsburg’s death, several of Trump GOP jockeys in the Senate released public statements, making it crystal clear that they intend to see a vote on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, despite the fact that it’s very much an election year — including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who made quite the stink and set the precedent for the exact opposite when Barack Obama was nearing the end of his presidential term and found himself in a similar position.
And since then things have, unsurprisingly, only proven to get worse.
In RBG’s final moments on this earth, she dicated this dying wish to her grandaughter: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
This morning, during an unhinged interview on Fox News, Trump clearly implied that Ginsburg’s grandaughter may have been lying about her grandmother’s final wish, ultimately suggesting that the statement was actually penned by Adam Schiff, Chuck Shumer, and Nancy Pelosi.
“I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi,” Trump declared on Fox & Friends this morning. “I would be more inclined to the second.”
And folks, Schiff is not having it.
In response to Trump disgusting suggestion, Schiff wrote on his Twitter account, “Mr. President, this is low. Even for you. No, I didn’t write Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish to a nation she served so well, and spent her whole life making a more perfect union. But I am going to fight like hell to make it come true. No confirmation before inauguration.”
Mr. President, this is low. Even for you.
No, I didn’t write Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish to a nation she served so well, and spent her whole life making a more perfect union.
But I am going to fight like hell to make it come true.
No confirmation before inauguration. https://t.co/QgwPCUK5n7

I think it’s safe to say — you’ve really done it this time, Trump. We’re coming for you.
