“Vote him out!”

That is the chant that greeted Trump at the US Supreme Court, the venue where justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is lying in state, from the crowds that were gathered outside.

    Good grief, Ruth Bader Ginsburg becomes first woman to lie in state in US Capitol. The headline says it all, really, but what about Rosa Parks? As the article explains: “Rosa Parks […] was previously the only woman who has lain in honor at the Capitol, though not in state, after her death in 2005.”

Ginsburg […] is the first woman and the first Jewish person to receive the honour”. (As an aside, Mr Johnson is Black.)

Hair furor, pretending grief, clearly (despite wearing a mask) becomes discombobulated and seems to rather abruptly leave.

    The Orange Toddler-Tyrant was NOT there to “pay his respects” to RBG. He was ONLY there because it was an obligation that he could not ignore.
