Trump Claims RBG’s Dying Wish is a Democratic Hoax Planned by Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer
We will skip past the need to point out that there is no bottom and just acknowledge for the umpteenth time that Trump sees his primary job as being president only of the people who agree with him, while also serving as Troll-in-Chief of the “libtards” that don’t. We see it time and again on Twitter. The only presidential policy that the MAGAs see as non-negotiable is the need to create “libtard tears.” Some of us regularly open our Twitter accounts to see the MAGAs celebrating us having “temper tantrums.” So Trump feels a special obligation to infuriate those of us on the left.
It makes a certain amount of sick sense that there’s no better time to genuinely enrage us than while we’re still in mourning for one of the greatest justices in American history and in fear of the hostile takeover of the government that Trump and McConnell seem set upon.
To that end, this morning Trump went on Fox and Friends and was asked about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish, that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. Trump obviously feels no obligation to honor her wish. But still, to perhaps appear less rude, or perhaps to just troll the liberals further, Trump decided to cast doubt on whether Ginsburg ever made such a statement.
According to Rawstory:
President Donald Trump on Monday told “Fox & Friends” that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish may have been a “hoax” concocted by Democrats. “I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi,” the president said. “I would be more inclined to the second.
With Trump, everything is projection, so it’s possible he’s just considering how he would do it in the same situation. But, CNN’s fact-checker Daniel Dale said that the wish was relayed by RBG’s granddaughter.
