President Donald Trump was greeted with boos and chants of “vote him out” as he attended the outdoor memorial service for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, visiting her casket at the Supreme Court on Thursday morning.
Ginsburg, who was the second woman appointed to the high court, served for more than 27 years and became a feminist icon in that time. She began her career as an advocate for women’s rights and then ascending to the court, where she was a voice for the rights for many marginalized groups. The devotion of her fans has resulted in lines of mourners outside the court this week to honor her life.
People who were waiting in line for their own chance to honor the late justice chanted as the president stood with first lady Melania Trump, both wearing masks, near Ginsburg’s casket.
Ginsburg’s dying wish, as her granddaughter relayed, was to have her seat filled by the next president.
Should Trump’s nominee be confirmed by the Senate, conservative-appointed justices will outnumber liberal-appointed jurists by a 6-to-3 margin.
Trump attended the second day of services honoring Ginsburg and people were not happy to see him there.
