Trump doesn’t pay respect to anyone. He plays the game only when forced to do so, and not very well.

BEAUTIFUL !!.. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!.. VOTING OUT THE CLOWN !!..

This is the news today. A screed posing as journalism that uses half its ink to quote some guy named "Rocky" they found in the street to give cover for the usual negative spin. This is why I get my news from Twitter. Lots of Rockys there, too. But also lots of smart people, and lots of supporting videos.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

As Democrats forwarded a resolution honoring RBG, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blocked the effort.

What a shocker.

11 ( +25 / -14 )

“She believed in equality for all people,” he said.

And now Trump and his fellow R's are undermining notions of 'equality for all people' as they try to stack courts to get justices who'll strike back measures that have tried to make the country more equitable for all people and as they get even more support from white nationalist movements in the US and around the globe.

This speaks for itself.

Who is that masked man? It's not the Lone Ranger. It's old Potus himself who finally found a use for a mask: not donning one to lead the nation by example, but rather to hide his face and cover his shame or, shamelessness.

6 ( +21 / -15 )

Time and place, people. Clearly they're not ready to rise above the low levels that they perceive the president.

-5 ( +12 / -17 )

"Vote Him Out" and then "Lock Him Up". Oh, and Boooooooooo!!!

8 ( +24 / -16 )

Trump lied, 200,000 people died.

Never forget!

9 ( +25 / -16 )

Trump acknowledged hearing the chant, but dismissed it as not very strong. “We could hardly hear it from where we were,” he told reporters on the South Lawn later Thursday.

Should of turned up your hearing aid!

5 ( +16 / -11 )

Don’t forget the time he gave a speech to the UN General Assembly where they actually laughed at him for proclaiming all the stupendous things he had done. That was a highlight for me because he never puts himself before anything but a partisan crowd.

Maybe Bonespurs should try facing reality a little more often. It isn't the media that hates him, it is the majority of the world.

12 ( +23 / -11 )

Just don’t take a knee.

Normally I’m not into booing, but if there’s one person who deserves it, it’s Trump.

*“The chants were appalling but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the swamp," McEnany said.*

Oh, she’s so clever. Just say magic words like swamp, far-left socialist, Sleepy Joe, and MAGA, and Trump’s cult followers will salivate like Pavlov dogs.

9 ( +22 / -13 )

Awww! Look at the little POTUS badge on little Donald's big scary mask.

That's a great comeback when you find yourself unable to express a cogent counterpoint. How clever!

“The chants were appalling but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the **swamp**," McEnany said.

she must hear it every day then.

9 ( +14 / -5 )

it is a shame that he stood there, she believed in equality for all people and

he doesn't even know what equality means.

7 ( +13 / -6 )

He , . . . . The boooo man.

Should have expressed his sincere condolences and avoided yet another PR stunt.

Most funerals are solemn affairs and should not be hijacked by political demonstrators - extremely disrespectful!

Trump booed as he pays respects at court to Ginsburg

Of course he was booed. These ANTIFA, BLM protestors know they’ll never amount to anything in life besides being total losers and criminals. Of course they don’t have the intelligence or upbringing to show respect where respect is due. Ginsberg was a highly intelligent and driven person. All her accomplishments where wiped aside because of some dum&ass@s.

-9 ( +12 / -21 )

Now now people. We shouldn't stoop to Trump's level and boo at a solemn event. It's best to keep taking the high road and not be petty like Trump would in the nearly four years worth of insulting and degrading tweets he has spewed forth against people.

2 ( +9 / -7 )

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said people have First Amendment rights, but she found the jeers “an appalling and disrespectful thing to do as the president honored Justice Ginsburg."

Defending a man who has sexually assaulted 26 women is worse, Kayleigh.

3 ( +12 / -9 )

Hey Fizz, can you provide some evidence that the Capitol Police permitted an Antifa/BLM rally while RBG lay on the steps and the Prez is visiting? I’m sure the Secret Service would think that’s just a swell idea.

1 ( +6 / -5 )

President Donald Trump was booed Thursday as he paid respects to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Quite unbecoming of the booers. Some people have no class.

-4 ( +10 / -14 )

Yeah, Serrano, this seems to happen whenever he leaves the White House to go anywhere other than a rally...go figure

those BLM Commie Antifa thugs and femiNazis who hate everything America has ever stood for ever really have no class

8 ( +14 / -6 )

Quite unbecoming of the booers. Some people have no class.

Kind of like when Trump mocked a disabled person, or when he mocked Asians and Hispanics, or when he continuously harassed the late Senator McCain, even on his deathbed. I could go on an on, but that would take days.

10 ( +18 / -8 )

This is the result of 3.5 years of existing to “own the libs.” Congrats, Trumpistas.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

no class whatsoever from liberals there.

-7 ( +9 / -16 )

Wow, talk about lowering the level of discussion. 

Oh come on, Serrano. It’s just a joke meant to make conservative heads explode. Like Trump’s jokes about beating up journalists and POWs being losers.

9 ( +17 / -8 )

Trump pays respects to a liberal justice who advocated FOR LOWERING THE AGE OF CONSENT TO 12,

( Claim stems from 1993 hearings

During a hearing in July 1993 on Ginsburg's nomination to the Supreme Court, Susan Hirschmann, executive director of Eagle Forum, interpreted Ginsburg's recommendations from a report co-authored by Ginsburg as "the age of consent for sexual acts must be lowered to 12 years old."

Similarly, in August 1993, Thomas L. Jipping referenced the same report when arguing against her nomination.

Jipping argued that Ginsburg's recommendations were "drafting women, and sending them into combat. Legalizing prostitution, which she believes is protected by the Constitution," and "lowering the age of consent for sexual acts to 12 years," according to The Congressional Record. )

and while most normal people find that disgusting and disturbing the nuts still rail at Trump !

They are a twisted bunch arn't they !

Boooooo to the liberal nutz !!!

-4 ( +10 / -14 )

yeah, I’m sure there was a liberal checkpoint to make certain that only BLM, AntiFa and FemiNazis were allowed in, Blacklabel

your man is cheered at rallies. Nowhere else.

7 ( +14 / -7 )

no class whatsoever from liberals there.

Like when Trump tweets degrading insults at women, minorities, and the military?

4 ( +12 / -8 )

Yeah Yeah just like tweets. Does everything with liberals have to be a response to some other perceived insult or slight? Everything has an unrelated excuse as to why you act inappropriately.

you KNOW this is wrong to boo the President of the United States at a viewing such as this.

Just no self control on liberal side, as can also be seen by rioting, burning and looting.

-6 ( +10 / -16 )

Trump booed as he pays respects at court to Ginsburg

Okay. He deserved all that credit when he acted so elated when he Tweeted to replace Ginsburg with one of his flunkies - about an hour after being notified of Gisburg's death.

5 ( +12 / -7 )

Just no self control on liberal side, as can also be seen by rioting, burning and looting.

Once more Trump backers attempt to reduce issues to one side or its opposite, one point of view or its opposite, nothing in-between. An age old tactic used by political extremists trying to help their authoritarian leader in his quest to divide and conquer. 'You're for us or your for the terrorists' level reasoning, zero nuance. So typical of Trump and his Republican rapid response team as they try to further divide the long divided nation. While accepting support from authoritarian regimes around the globe.

Cry me a river

”They go Low, We go High” is sooo 2016

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

according to CNN there no one was booing, they were all saying "RUUUUUUUUUUU-TH"

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Okay. He deserved all that credit when he acted so elated when he Tweeted to replace Ginsburg with one of his flunkies

Any of the "flunkies" on Trump's list have impeccable credentials and would rule based on the Constitution. The Democrats have no reason to vote against his nominee except to be partisan.

-7 ( +7 / -14 )

They certainly ain’t flunkies, I’ll agree with you on that. Rather they are pre-cleared by Leonard Leo and the Federalist Society and don’t even require hearings as far as the Senate GOP goes. They be in!

nah, certainly not flunkies, more like straight out of a Dan Brown novel

Just no self control on liberal side, as can also be seen by rioting, burning and looting.

I would also say that there is no control on the right-wing side when they try to block, harass, and intimidate voters waiting in line to vote early, as in North Carolina. It should be a crime trying to use physical force and intimidation to manipulate voting.

Meh. Too restrained. Tyrant deserves more than just boos.

-3 ( +6 / -9 )

Actually, I imagine RBG would have chuckled at the thought. Entirely appropriate - look how your leader behaved in the wake of the death of McCain and how he spoke ill of soldiers in cemeteries.

He'll be booed for all eternity, just like other despots.

The radical Left are so hateful they think nothing of desecrating the solemnity of one of their own cult heroes funeral. They have truly gone over the edge.

Trump goes high, the Left gets shrill.

-8 ( +8 / -16 )

These ANTIFA, BLM protestors know they’ll never amount to anything in life besides being total losers and criminals.

Such ignorance and snobbery.

Antifascism is a movement that has been around since the time of Mussolini - it is a loose collective of peoples around the world who have protested against apartheid, who have marched for Civil Rights movements in Derry and Selma, who have put Nazis on trial. It consists of millions of people from all walks of life - builders, veterans, doctors, nurses, lawyers, white collar, blue collar, politicians, workers, non-workers and so on.

The narrative is always the same from the far right - if you protest against us you must be criminal/communist/lazy/unemployed/terrorist/anti-whatever country you live in/on drugs/mentally unfit and so on.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

The radical Left are so hateful they think nothing of desecrating the solemnity of one of their own cult heroes funeral. They have truly gone over the edge.

I'd say the funeral of a feminist icon was desecrated way more by the attendance of a guy accused of multiple rapes who has also freely admitted on tape to committing sexual assault than by the people booing that guy.

6 ( +11 / -5 )

nobody cares about before taking office. Who desecrated THIS solemn event? the people booing.

Trump has mocked and desecrated solemn moments and occasions since before taking office

-8 ( +5 / -13 )

Trump is such a turkey.

3 ( +9 / -6 )

Boo! Hopefully, many people see the boo boo they made in voting for this boor and he gets the boot next election for being a total boob.

Do not boo Trump, VOTE HIM OUT.

Booing or cheering is NOT effective, VOTING is.

It’s true or do liberals think we have no enemies? I guess to liberals China is a beacon for freedom and democracy we have nothing to worry about. But now it seems like Joe and his family are knee deeper involved with China than we previously thought, can’t wait for Wallace to ask Joe about that one. I still don’t get why Dems hate job creators...smh...

-7 ( +6 / -13 )

I will admit that Trump was in a no-win situation here. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.

That Metallica line “this thorn in my side is from a tree I planted” comes to mind.

“The chants were appalling but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the swamp," McEnany said.

You swamp creatures will have to move in a few short weeks as we plan to drain the swamp YOU created into nice grassland where everyone can sit and feel comfortable.

Nope, your leader did. As he's done on countless occasions, mocking the dead, the veterans, POWs, dead politicians.

And people do care about a PotUS and their past. If they didn't why make up stuff about their birth certificates?

Don't pretend that a politican's character doesn't have any impact on whether they're fit for office or not.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

so what did he do on THIS occasion? I see him standing there respectfully. He even wore a mask for you.

All pre 2016 character/actions were evaluated in 2016 election and he was elected, sorry not sorry.

Meanwhile Antifa in the street on Twitter says;

Burning down buildings is good because “you can employ a bunch of people to build it back up.” This is your brain on Antifa.

-7 ( +6 / -13 )

what these people failed to understand is that there was a dead person lying there in the coffin ( 1 ) and a man ( the US President, but still ( just ) a man ) was paying his respects ( 2 ). moments like this deserve silence and not screams or boos. now you can call him whatever you want, but I think we can agree that he knows the meaning of respect. and these people showed a total lack of respect. and not to him.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

All pre 2016 character/actions were evaluated in 2016 election and he was elected, sorry not sorry.

Well, maybe when the horrible man eventually kicks the bucket we can still put him on trial, like they used to do with kings and popes back in medieval times. Seeing as Trump prefers the past where us serfs knew our place, that would be apt.

Seriously, his actions since the 70s have been evaluated and everything is not ok. The sexual assaults, racism, scams and fraud is all still there - nothing has changed, and neither has his behaviour.

One wonders why the Trump cult idolises this beast.

Burning down buildings is good because “you can employ a bunch of people to build it back up.” This is your brain on Antifa.

The far right "brain" - buildings over bodies. Property over people.

Nothing but class there, protestors. Every time something like this happens, 100,000 more people decide to vote for Trump. Maybe he is crude and boorish, but at least he stands for safety in the streets and econcomic prosperity.

I read some comments here that, when Trump is voted out, they will "drain the swamp". Uh,,,,, sure. With one of the most dedicated swamp dwellers (Biden for 47 years) leading the charge? Don't think so. Joe has been in office longer than most Americans have been alive, and I have yet to hear one good thing he has done or led. He is the epitome of "swamp", a glad-handing, back-slapping lightweight who made a career out of lingering in the presence of those with more talent than himself.

Honest thanks, Bass. Been so pissed off this past week haven’t much been able to laugh. Do libs think we have no enemies?

to paraphrase one of your tribe, Tomi Lahren, y’all really don’t get it, do you?

thats actually not at all funny

Bass et al,

when McConnell says “The American People” want this seat filled immediately, he does not mean the “American People.” He means you, As I keep harping, “you” are not the majority. 6-3 is unassailable. Your side is establishing minority rule. For the next 30 years. You’re delusional if you think “suck it, lib” is gonna fly this time.

For the record if the shoe were on the other foot I would be just as angrily advocating for your side. Absolute power corrupts absolutely

Does that answer your question Bass about “libs” and “enemies.?”

Every time something like this happens, 100,000 more people decide to vote for Trump.

Can you provide evidence/links/citations? Thanks in advance.

It's amusing how literally no form of protest is acceptable to the right. Not marching, not demonstating, not taking the knee, not violence, not non-violence, and definitely not booing their beloved despot.

But a bunch of anti-semites chanting "Jews will not replace us", gun-toting militia men and extrajudicial vigilantes? Perfectly acceptable.

Scalia was a hypocritical dork who was an originalist until he wasn’t. State’s right and deference to the legislative branch, until W was down in Florida or the chance to undo the Voting Rights Act (Passed with more than 300 votes in the House), then????

Meh, finger on the scale for our guys.

RBG, whether you agreed or not was a consistent voice for equality. That’s why he was mocked and she was mourned.

I hope that Americans boo Trump at the polling stations too.

“The chants were appalling but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the swamp," McEnany said.

...Meanwhile, the president is expected to announce his nominee to replace Ginsburg on Saturday. He has said he will select from a list of five women. Republicans are working to move quickly to a confirmation vote, possibly even before the Nov. 3 election.

The best part is that there is nothing that the democrats, or socialist, or terrorists can do about it, except to whine on the internet. Again.

Got to admire the intelligence of the far right - announcing their plans for world domination,

Name me one Republican that wants to defund the police, topple statues, abolish ICE, abolish the Electoral College, pack the courts, turn DC, Puerto Rico and divide California in 3 separate States, not allowing school choice, abolish the filibuster, push to abolish capitalism(Democrat suicide) expand entitlements to an already financially strapped and dwindling middle class, push a healthcare that a large majority of the population can’t afford and hospitals don’t want, erode and silence religion and worshippers, abolish the 2nd amendment and on and on...again, not one Republican is for any of this. So to think Republicans want and are planning World domination is not only ludicrous, but hilariously funny.

This is when you get to see the real "haters" who jump on the bandwagon and denounce Trump. Then when you ask them to give examples of his "racism" or "incompetence" , they call you a racist. Basically, they don't have facts.

Sadly, neither do you, it would seem.

The facts of Trump's bigotry, his lies, sexual misconduct, scams, nepotism, ripping off charities, using his position to enrich himself and his cronies is all documented. All out there and has been posted here numerous times.

And been dismissed by Trump supporters numerous times. Posters have spent time outlining the many times he has abused his position and made racist comments against other countries and peoples, and the times he's praised and courted white nationalists.

No matter how many times the facts are presented, Trump apologists dismiss them.

It's hardly surprising that people are jeering him - given his hypocrisy concerning his political opponents and his hatred of people who didn't vote for him. And the choice of venue and timing to air their anger is entirely appropriate. Am sure the good judge would have waved them on.

The problem with the right wing is that no type of protest is acceptable, there is never a correct or appropriate time to register disgust and dissent.

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Face facts, rightists, Trump has forever changed the once proud Republican party to suit and please only himself. Although I myself have been more liberal in my views, I always enjoyed my childhood years during Reagan's two terms as president and respected his views and actions. It was a good time to be alive and people around the world could respect America. Now, under Trump, the Republican party has completely changed. It is littered with hypocrites who will kowtow to a dictator, who care nothing for the country, but themselves. Even though they control the office and the Senate, they will continue to blame others for their inadequacies and failings.

abolish the Electoral College

There are a lot of people on both sides who want to get rid of it. Doing so would actually make people's vote actually count. Conservatives and Liberals alike have both complained about a lack of their voice being heard. Face it, it's an outdated system and way of actually representing citizens' views. Getting rid of it benefits everyone.

9 ( +10 / -1 )

you can call him whatever you want,

People will, but thanks for your permission.

but I think we can agree that he knows the meaning of respect

Like he respected the 'suckers and losers' in the military graveyard?

Like he respected John McCain? ("I like people who weren't captured.")

Like he respected the parents of Capt. Khan?("She had nothing to say... Maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.")

Like he respected Serge Kovaleski?

Like he respected all the ladies he grabbed by the pu☆☆y?

Like he respected all the young girls he made a point of walking in on while they were changing?

Like he respects former Presidents (Wild Bill, Cheatin' Obama, Bush Original) and former presidential/vice presidential candidates (Sleepy Joe, Mini Mike, Low Energy Jeb, Crazy Hillary, Lyin' Ted, Phoney Kamala, Braindead Bernie)?

I could go on, but life is too short.

Trump would not know the meaning of respect if it came up and bit him on his big fat posterior.

Trump is a complete moron. Feigning respect while planning to announce a justice replacement even before RGB's funeral. That's a total lack of respect. Selfish narcissist - he cares only for himself, and cares nothing for the people he has taken an oath to protect. It's beyond belief that he has any supporters at all, and that's what's truly scary.

Nothing wrong with toppling statues. No complaints when Stalin was toppled in former Soviet republics, Saddam in Iraq, Nelson in Ireland. But that's the far right - statues of slavers are more sacred than lives.

No, the far right hate America because it's diverse, because people care enough about it to protest and try and bring about change for the people.

As for cutting down on fuel reliant engines or minding livestock consumption - moves that will help save the future (not just for generations of Americans yet to come, but for all of us), they'd rather piss away that future in order to keep themselves rich and removed from the worries of the masses.

Trump epitomises the hatred for American lives and that's one of the many reasons he got booed.

Yeah, there is in our country and that’s why they’re being charged with a federal crime, can’t dismiss the charges and that’s why they stopped doing that.

I agree, but that won’t be for another 40 years and the majority of people in United States cannot go to work on a solar powered bicycles until then.

He doesn’t, if he did he wouldn’t get support from literally the entire law-enforcement and fire department as many as military officials and I’m talking about just a regular average military folk, not to mention you’re not going to see Trump supporters are there a word about hating America or wanting to burn it down or any other institutions, if they did then you could really say he and then hate America, no contrast that to the Democrats that want to create a new utopia Marxist state.

Yeah, there is in our country and that’s why they’re being charged with a federal crime, can’t dismiss the charges and that’s why they stopped doing that.

American exceptionalism again?

I do wonder why the far right care more about statues and property than the well-being of the people, their freedom to be able to exist without beingmurdered for the colour of their skin.

I agree, but that won’t be for another 40 years and the majority of people in United States cannot go to work on a solar powered bicycles until then.

Fossil fuel alternatives are already here. Using solar, hydro, wind, geothermal, electric etc. No reason why America can't get with the programme. Instead of spending on obscene election campaigns and the arms industry, put the money towards the future.

Talked to all of them, did you? Because it's not what I'm hearing...

not to mention you’re not going to see Trump supporters are there a word about hating America or wanting to burn it down or any other institutions, if they did then you could really say he and then hate America,

There is little doubt that the far right hate America. The very act of voting for a white supremacist and environment wrecker is stark evidence.

no contrast that to the Democrats that want to create a new utopia Marxist state.

You're mixing up your ideologies again. Do you understand the basic tenets of Marxism and how they would apply to a possible scenario where voters do endorse such a thing?

Toasted Heretic,

Nothing wrong with toppling statues. No complaints when Stalin was toppled in former Soviet republics, Saddam in Iraq, Nelson in Ireland. But that's the far right - statues of slavers are more sacred than lives.

No, the far right hate America because it's diverse, because people care enough about it to protest and try and bring about change for the people.

As for cutting down on fuel reliant engines or minding livestock consumption - moves that will help save the future (not just for generations of Americans yet to come, but for all of us), they'd rather piss away that future in order to keep themselves rich and removed from the worries of the masses. 

Trump epitomises the hatred for American lives and that's one of the many reasons he got booed.

Oh, hell yeah, THAT is beautiful!

Whoops, hit copy again, my bad:)

American exceptionalism again?

Not a bad thing, but it would seem like liberals want the country to be a Marxist and socialist authoritative dictatorship. Take AOC for a bit, she is the most smartest woman in the entire planet and she’s pushing for this.

Fossil fuel alternatives are already here. Using solar, hydro, wind, geothermal, electric etc

We had Solyndra and 11 other experimental pet projects that went belly up and cost the taxpayers millions and what happened these companies folded, so I agree with you we do need to focus on alternative energy, but it won’t happen at least for another four years to get some thing lasting and permanent, until then we should continue fracking we should use all the natural resources we have and if other companies want to do it privately, they should find it, as a matter fact George Soros could finally put his money to real good use, be a first for that guy.

There is little doubt that the far right hate America.

If that were true Trump would tell Americans how to worship and once they take away our Second Amendment and once they tell everyone how we can work and how much money we can make and keep and how we can talk and how we can live, then I’ll believe it.

You're mixing up your ideologies again.

No, I’m not.

And those were just the Republicans...

Both sides love America.

problem is that there is resolute disagreement on what “America” means.

wasnt that long ago that one could say “neither side has a monopoly on patriotism” and both sides would nod their heads.

wish I knew how to get back there.

So Antifa, a few blocks away, is booing. Where is the news? What does the writer expect them to do? Should Maga??
