Honor her wish’: Crowds boo Donald and Melania Trump as the first couple pay their respects to Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Supreme Court
Trump and first lady Melania Trump on Thursday morning paid their respects to Ginsburg outside the Supreme Court, where they were greeted by boos and chants of “Vote him out! Vote him out!”
It’s rare for President Trump to hear any criticism or booing in his public appearances. His campaign rallies and events are typically filled with cheering supporters who offer constant applause and adoration.
The Trumps, both wearing masks, stood silently in front of Ginsburg’s flag-draped casket for a few minutes before making their way back to the presidential motorcade.
‘Vote him out,’ was also heard being yelled by people standing along the side of the Supreme Court building.
The first couple arrived for their short visit at the back of the Supreme Court building and walked through it and out its front door to view Ginsburg’s coffin. That could have been for security reasons given the heavy crowds and lines of people in front of the court.
The Trumps spent 11 minutes at the court before returning to the White House
Thousands of mourners have lined up at the Supreme Court to pay tribute to the late justice, who became a cultural icon and feminist hero. Many of them supported Ginsburg’s liberal philosophy, putting them in direct opposition to the president.
