The nation has been roiled again in 2020 with yet another politically prescient disaster for the Democrats.
The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has left Donald Trump with the possibly of appointing yet another to the bench. The Democrats, of course, would like the President to wait until after the upcoming election to make such a decision, surely hoping that Trump would be defeated before having a chance to bring another conservative to the court.
The left is so incensed at the idea, in fact, that they have even threatened to use impeachment to bring the process to a halt.
Furthermore, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s willingness to work with the President on this process has brought protesters to his front step.
Protesters gathered outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky, following his announcement that the Senate would vote on a Supreme Court nominee.
“The Senate majority leader is a key figure in determining whether a nominee appointed by President (Donald) Trump will succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before Election Day,” according to Fox News.
Protesters carried signs that had phrases such as “Ruth Sent Us,” and “No Ethics No Shame,” written on them.
It was unclear whether McConnell was at home or in Washington when the event took place.
The scene was chaotic, to say the least:

The President has received pushback from a few Republicans in the Senate who believe that he should wait until after the election to move ahead with the process.
