Donald Trump was booed by protestors chanting ‘get him out!’ – 7 favourite things people said about it
There’s been no lack of vocal critics of Donald Trump over the four years of his presidency, of course, but it’s not often they get to be this up close and personal.
The president and First Lady Melania Trump were at the Supreme Court on Thursday to pay their respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Ginsburg, you may remember, dictated a statement to her daughter just before her death calling on Trump not to fill her vacancy on the Supreme Court until after the election, but Trump is pressing ahead with his nomination regardless.
And this is what happened.

It’s so disrespectful for him to even show his face there. But I’m glad he did because this made my day.

Some people wondered what Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have made of it all.
Even though the casket is closed I bet RBG’s body just cracked a smile.

At first, I thought the chants were a bit disrespectful to her, but then thought the same, she probably enjoyed it

What an incredible moment.
I am so grateful for these crowds. So grateful for every single voice that shouted in unison.
