Donald Trump Gets Booed, Crowd Chants 'Vote Him Out' While Paying Respects to RBG at Supreme Court (Video)

The people mourning the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the steps of the Supreme Court made sure that Donald Trump knew how they felt about him when he showed up to pay his respects.

The President of the United States, along with First Lady Melania Trump, emerged at the top of the Supreme Court steps on Thursday afternoon (September 24) in Washington, D.C.

The Trumps were seen wearing face masks while they looked straight ahead for their few moments in public. The booing started very quickly and then the crowd started to chant “vote him out.”

Later in the day, Trump was questioned about what happened and he denied hearing the boos.

“I think that was just a political chant. We could hardly hear it from where we were,” Trump said (via CNN). “Somebody said there was some chanting. But they were right next to the media. But we could hardly hear too much. We heard a sound but it wasn’t very strong.”

You can watch the moment in the video below.

Mitch McConnell Says Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Will Get a Vote in the Senate, Despite His Own Precedent

Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, says that he will hold a vote on President Trump‘s nominee to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s seat on the Supreme Court.

Back in March 2016, McConnell blocked the senate from holding a vote for Merrick Garland, who was nominated to the supreme court by Obama.

McConnell said back then that a Supreme Court seat should not be filled in an election year, but now he is only saying it shouldn’t be filled during an election year if the presidency and senate are controlled by different parties.

In a statement he released just minutes after Ginsburg‘s death was announced, McConnell said, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

New York’s democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, who is the Senate Minority Leader, opposes the vote.

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” he tweeted.

Ginsburg‘s dying wish was revealed after her death and it involves to vote to replace her.

This is an election year for McConnell as well and in 45 days, he could be voted out of office.

Donald Trump Allegedly Said Americans Who Died in War Are 'Losers,' Joe Biden Reacts

New reports are claiming that President Trump has said that American soldiers who died at war are “losers” and “suckers.”

The Atlantic says that during Trump‘s visit to Paris in 2018, he questioned why he should visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery. He reportedly told senior staff members, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

More than 1,800 marines lost their lives in the World War I battle at Belleau Wood and Trump allegedly said they are “suckers” getting killed.

A senior Defense Department official confirmed the comments to the Associated Press. When the visit to the cemetery was canceled, the White House blamed bad weather as the reason.

Facebook Says Russian Trolls Who Interfered in 2016 Election Are Back

Facebook is reporting more disinformation attempts.

The social media network said it banned a “small network” of accounts affiliated with the same Kremlin-backed Russian hacking group that spread disinformation during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Variety reported on Tuesday (September 1).

Facebook announced that it had removed 13 Facebook accounts and two Pages “linked to individuals associated with past activity by the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA).”

The IRA-linked campaign it removed in August “was largely unsuccessful on Facebook, but it tricked unwitting freelance journalists into writing stories on its behalf.” Facebook added that it is notifying the individuals who were contacted by the disinformation network.

The Russian IRA promoted links to fake news stories via a website called “Peace Data,” created by the network to appear like a legitimate news organization. The fake stories included headlines like “Bugaloo Movement: USA Far Right Is Growing Thanks to Donald Trump” and “UK Government Creates a Myth of a Migrant Crisis to Distract From Its Failures.”

Back in 2017, Facebook said Russia-linked content reached an estimated 126 million people during the 2016 presidential campaign season into 2017.
