“Vote Him Out!” – President Donald Trump faced boos and jeers from the crowd as he appeared at the top of the Supreme Court steps to pay his respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
President Donald Trump was met with loud booing and chants of “vote him out!” as he arrived at the Supreme Court on Thursday morning to pay respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Videos from Capitol Hill showed the president wearing a face mask and standing alongside first lady Melania Trump at the Supreme Court, with countless onlookers shouting and booing towards the couple.
Emerging at the top of the Supreme Court steps on Thursday, President Donald Trump heard something he doesn’t often hear — at least directed toward him: booing.
“Vote him out,” crowds began chanting when Trump appeared before the flag-draped coffin containing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last week after a long bout with cancer.
President Trump was met by shouts of “vote him out” and “honor her wish” as he paid his respects on Thursday to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her body is lying in repose for a second day at the Supreme Court.
Trump, wearing a black mask, was silent as he stood next to the flag-draped coffin at the top of the Supreme Court’s steps.
Demonstrators standing across the street from the court booed Trump as he emerged from the building, and then began chanting at him to honor Ginsburg’s dying wish that she not be replaced “until a new president is installed.”
The following is a sample of reactions to the story via Twitter:

Trump got out of his bubble for a moment and realized that we want to #VoteHimOut. Keep saying it and vote like our democracy depends on it, because it does.
