What a piece of work is this man: Trump trolls liberals with Barrett history play
Discussion posted by: JohnF44
On a grey Washington day,Donald Trump stood in the White House Rose Garden and introduced Amy Coney Barrett as his next supreme court justice. It followed hard upon, as Hamlet’s pal Horatio would say, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The liberal justice has not yet been buried. As Barrett noted, flags are still at half-staff. But Ginsburg’s last request–that the next president decide her successor–was swept aside amid a pageant of giant US flags hanging from colonnades, resembling the day Ginsburg herself was nominated by Bill Clinton. Nothing would stop Trump pressing ahead with what critics regard as a very American coup, played out in broad daylight just 40 days before an election, imposing rightwing minority rule for a generation. For democracy, murder most foul.
