Trump Says He Doesn’t Believe RBG’s ‘Dying Wish’, ‘Just Too Convenient,’ and Americans are FURIOUS
One of the real mysteries to come out today is why Donald Trump even seems to care that Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed a dying wish that the next president name her successor. Obviously one of our hero’s worst nightmares was that she wouldn’t make it to the end of the Trump administration. God knows she tried like hell, living through three times more sickness and pain that most of us could endure, all to get to that point. She came up just slightly short but might have had reason to hope that the Republicans simply couldn’t push past the doctrine they put in place the last time a justice died prior to an election.
On the other hand, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was so much smarter than us that she surely saw the GOP coming from her hospital bed and thus told her granddaughter about her one fervent wish – probably knowing it wouldn’t actually do any good with Republicans but maybe motivating Democrats that much more.
Regardless, the weird thing is that Trump even addressed it as if it matters to him that she said it. We know exactly what Trump would do even if she had told him to his face on live TV. He would likely say that it doesn’t matter, the president picks the nominees. He has Article II, which means he can do what he wants. And then he’d make some remark about her being a woman anyway and everyone knows that women aren’t that smart, as opposed to him – who’s got great genes, and thus should make the decision …
Here is the guy with “great genes” doing some chopper talk, saying that he doubts that RBG even said that she wanted him to wait. It sounds “a little too convenient.”
Trump on Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish: It just sounds to me that it would be somebody else. I don’t believe.. It could be and it might not be too. It was just too convenient pic.twitter.com/IGITAZ6Sgf

It is possible that Trump is just so fcking stupid that he doesn’t know that just about any SCOTUS justice would say the exact same thing on their death bed knowing that they detested the man in office? He truly might now know.
Anyway, Twitter allowed Americans to retort:
Criminal pathological liar saying the granddaughter of an American icon is using her grandmother's passing as a game. A man who has no soul, a demon walking this earth, is incapable of understanding why he is moving us into a wave like they've never seen. #DecimateTheGOP2020 https://t.co/0xY2fqrNSI

Listen. He starts to say he doesn’t believe…but then he actually checks himself and says “it could be and it might not be too.”
This is a deliberate tactic of attacking *the very concept* of objective truth, and a documented Kremlin “active measure.”
He. Has. Been. Coached. https://t.co/7PwCVnox7C

It was too convenient? It was her dying wish.
She made it BECAUSE SHE KNEW SHE WAS DYING!
Please, for the love of everything decent and humane, do not vote for this awful, awful excuse for a human! @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/aNWU10qzu3

It's 'just too convenient' that a wmn who worked into her 88th yr, who diligently saw to her reg duties–sometimes frm a *hospital bed*–while *fighting cancer* said that?
She, who gave the last full measure of devotion to her nation, wldn't have said that?
Indeed,yes she would. https://t.co/5LGLipwmpm

Someone needs to make a list of all of the conspiracy theories @realDonaldTrump has pushed in the past 4+ years. I mean, there were the birther conspiracies for Obama (and now Kamala Harris). There were “caravans” and the “Obama spied on my campaign”. We’ve got this one now too. https://t.co/M9PSoRD4Cb
