Far-left liberal Democrats booed like unhinged, uncultured maniacs Thursday as President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived at the Supreme Court to pay respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Even during a moment of silence for the late justice, the Democrats could be heard loudly booing and shrieking like banshees.
“Vote him out!” they all yelled in unison.
Disgusting behavior from leftists outside the Supreme Court:

This footage quickly went viral among the uber-elite Twitterati, with some far-left propagandists gleefully using the footage to make dubious accusations about the president’s appearance at the high court.
“They’re booing Trump for pretending to pay his respects to the women who’s legacy he’s currently trying to destroy,” an ostensible propagandist from The Daily Beast claimed.
“Chants of ‘Vote Him Out’ as they pretend to pay their respects to #RuthBaderGinsburg,” another added.
The claim that the president was just “pretending” is conspiratorial hogwash, though it’s unlikely to be fact-checked by anyone at Twitter.
Look at some of the footage and accompanying claims/responses from the Twitterati below:

The far-left Democrats also yelled, “Honor her wish.”
After Ginsburg’s death last week, her granddaughter claimed she’d told her that she doesn’t want to be replaced “until a new president is installed.”
It was a highly disturbing, politically charged statement that made no sense. If President Donald Trump, a Republican, wins reelection in November, which is a strong possibility, a “new president” won’t be installed until 2025 …
Moreover, there is no precedent pertaining to the wishes of just-deceased justices. The only known precedent is, as noted by Mitt Romney of all people, that when justices die during election years, “the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.”

In response to this behavior, some wondered how the media would have reacted had Republicans behaved like this toward former President Barack Hussein Obama.
Based on the media’s reflexive defense of the former president, they would have no doubt labeled the Republicans “racist.”

Others wondered why the president had allowed himself to be put in this situation. Perhaps because — unlike members of the left — he’d felt that paying respects to RBG was more important than partisan politics?
Over on Fox News, contributor Chris Stirewalt posited a conspiracy theory that perhaps the president’s decision was rooted in “political calculation.”
“I don’t know why he went. He didn’t go to John Lewis’ memoriam. He wasn’t there for that stuff. And for good reason. Right? These people don’t want him there. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s folks don’t want him there. It’s going to be an ugly scene,” he said.
Lewis wasn’t a Supreme Court justice. He was a member of the opposition party.
“I guess, he’s the president. He can go where ever he wants. And he has security so that he can go do it. But you just wonder what the political calculation was here in going to a place where you know you will be received poorly, going to a place where you know the folks there don’t want you to be,” Stirewalt continued.
“Maybe it’s to get the boos. Maybe that’s the idea. But you can see the intensity that Democrats feel about Ginsburg, about this seat, about this election, about Trump.”
FYI, there’s no evidence to substantiate this theory …
Moreover, after news of Ginsburg’s death broke last Friday, the president was quick to issue a statement offering condolences.

Elected congressional Democrats were quick meanwhile to politicize her death.
