If you haven't heard, Democrats are extremely salty that there is a chance another conservative Supreme Court Justice is appointed. In fact, they are so outraged they are targeting McConnell's homes in DC and Kentucky with protests.
Democrats and, particularly, progressive activists, have pledged ongoing protests targeting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over his plan to shepherd a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg through the Senate confirmation process ahead of the November presidential election.
Ginsburg passed away Friday at age 87 from complications of pancreatic cancer.
Both McConnell and President Donald Trump noted, early Saturday, that the White House will likely announce Ginsburg’s potential replacement this week, angering Democrats who prefer to wait for the outcome of the November election to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.
Before either party had weighed in on the political consequences of Ginsburg’s death, though, protesters had amassed outside the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C., for a part-vigil, part-demonstration against filling Ginsburg’s seat with a Republican appointee. After a number of speeches and an impromptu memorial, protesters called up the location of Mitch McConnell’s D.C. home and marched over.
McConnell, to their great disappointment, was not home at the time.
“His house is entirely dark,” Charlotte Clymer of the Truman Project tweeted. ” Significant police presence out front. It’s clear that he’s not here, as confirmed by a neighbor who is not fond of him. People are going home.”
His house is entirely dark. Significant police presence out front. It’s clear that he’s not here, as confirmed by a neighbor who is not fond of him. People are going home.
