Donald Trump greeted with boos & chants of ‘vote him out’ and ‘honor her wish’

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg  in Repose at the Supreme Court of the US

I haven’t watched The Daily Show in years, do they still do the “Moment of Zen” every night? Because that’s what happened yesterday – a very cathartic moment of Zen. Donald Trump and Melania Trump decided to “pay their respects” to the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who was lying in state at the Supreme Court. Dipsh-t Don wore a mask which looked like an alien sucking his face, and the best part was the huge crowd booing the f–k out of him and chanting “honor her wish” and “vote him out.”


Also: even Fox News polls are getting bad for Trump. Fox News did a poll following RBG’s passing, and they surveyed voters in Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania, three of the big “battleground states.” Joe Biden is leading in all three, according to the polling. Majorities disapprove of Trump’s job performance, people are worried about the pandemic and people would prefer that Biden select RBG’s replacement. Biden’s support is “outside the margin of error” in Nevada and Pennsylvania.

    Hope these boos turn into a blue wave on November 3rd.

    • Eleonora says:

      I saw people being very smart about registering people to vote who were queueing somewhere.

      Also important, I think, to follow Biden on social media and share his posts.
      He’s saying a lot of good things, but people don’t see it and complain he’s not visible enough.

  2. Becks1 says:

    That video is amazing. You can tell how uncomfortable he is, maybe even how surprised – he really does surround himself with sycophants and really is probably convinced that americans love him outside of the media and press. No, we don’t, Donnie!

    • minx says:

      Later he lied that he couldn’t hear any boos or chants.

      • lucy2 says:

        LOL of course.
        I’m shocked he wore a mask. Doesn’t that make him weak and afraid and controlled, according to his lunatic followers?

      • Lightpurple says:

        @lucy2, the choice was either wear the mask or walk up those front stairs in full view of the world. Roberts, not Trump, controls access to that building and no way could Trump make it up those stairs.

      • trashaddict says:

        Yeah, he couldn’t hear, some other impulse made him turn around and walk back in the building. Oh yeah! I think it’s called cowardice.

    • Snappyfish says:

      It was glorious !! I am making into my ring tone. You could see how upset he was. I do wish they would stop reporting his voting conspiracy theory as it’s the same BS be pulled in 2016. He is a one note pony. All corruption all the time

    • zhira says:

      I watched the FauxNews clip on Twitter. The anchor woman stumbled a bit, only saying you could hear “shouting” in the background. But she did not report the actual words shouted were “Vote him out.”
      The NY Times article pissed me off. The reporter wrote that trump stayed for less than two minutes. But a few sentences later, the reporter added it was unknown if trump heard the protests. Really? That speculation was not factual or necessary.
      The press is not living up to its full responsibility.

  3. FancyPants says:

    I took a lot of petty pleasure in watching this, but I can’t help but think this only sealed the already-sealed deal of him hate-filling her seat. Mitch might have been waiting until after the election just for show (of what??), but Cheeto Mussolini will be on the rampage now. The only way to placate him will be Nazi rallies every night for two weeks straight.

    • Lightpurple says:

      He is doing nightly rallies. New Mexico today. Florida last night. Pennsylvania earlier this week.

    • Christine says:

      Eh, he was going to do that anyway.

    • Godwina says:

      I would have had a hard time not screaming obscenities at him…

    • holly hobby says:

      On the other hand Miss. Lindsey is getting really nervous about his chances for re-election. He was on Fox saying he is getting killed financially and he’s begging for money for his campaign. He should have considered that possibility before he went all in on orange crazypants and going back on his word about confirming a Sup. Ct judge during an election year. Too bad so sad.

      All that crying won’t make him back out of his promise to confirm the next nut. Lindsey is going down with the Rumptanic.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        It’s about time that Lying Linsey is booted out of the Senate. His disregard for the constitution and the law have placed him as one of the most unscrupulous senators since McCarthy. I am glad he is getting slammed, as he deserves it. Did you know that Kentucky gains more federal dollars than any of the other states that surround Kentucky and more than the poorest states, such as Mississippi and Alabama? The Kentucky residents shouldn’t need to work given the amount of money that’s poured into that state. I had read an article earlier this year that he was losing his constituents already, about Feb/Mar, which makes no sense since they swimming in money.
        As for Drumpf and the boo-ing, I applaud each and every RGB visitor paying their respects as he should have been boo-ed and possibly egged☺️ Though he has no heart so it’s doesn’t matter. I am sick of his grandiose display of pity parties, they don’t like me so they aren’t voting for me, no one likes me, yuk! You are right Drumpf, no one likes you, not even your wife but from what I heard, they are a match made in heaven.
        In regards to his latest escapade of lies, his latest “specialist” regarding COVID 19 is actually a radiologist, that looks to have been brought back from the dead. This guys couldn’t find his d#ck unless he ties a string to it, yet alone handle a national epidemic!!

    • Lanie says:

      Whatever gave you the impression that Mitch McConnell was going to wait until after the election to fill an open spot on SCOTUS?

      He only does that with Judges nominated by liberal presidents.

  4. Juls says:

    Anytime he gets booed by a crowd brings me great joy. I just know it makes him want to hide in a closet and cry while Wolfing down cheeseburgers. What. A. Loser.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    He had to wear the mask because they walked through the courthouse from the back to get to the casket and to leave and the Chief Justice, not Trump, makes the rules for that building. The mask covered his eyes. He was there for a photo-op, not to pay respects, and he was having difficulty standing. The chanting got to him. His face turned darker.

    • B n A fn says:

      I have been noticing he cannot stand still, he sways back and forth. Also, when he’s at a podium he holds on as if to keep himself up, just wondering is anyone else noticed this. I believe he’s hiding some kind of medical problem from us.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Stroke or Parkinson’s most likely. A man of his age with the level of unsteadiness he shows would usually be prescribed a cane to prevent falls.

      • Miranda says:

        Whatever that problem is, I hope it’s slow and painful.

      • Michelle says:

        My friend’s psychic predicted at the debate, one of them will collapse and never recover. Part of me knows it’s bull, but the other part is wondering if it’ll happen….

      • Rose says:

        FT Dementia.

        My coworkers in the rehab team (PT/OT/SLP) all have a running pool as to when he will no longer be ambulatory. Everything about him is like every dementia patient we’ve clapped eyes on.

      • ClaireB says:

        If I believed in psychics, given how 2020 has gone so far, I wouldn’t be surprised if Putin poisons Biden and he’s the one who collapses!

    • KellyRyan says:

      His standing, leaning forward, arms and hands close to his side was noted by Tom Joseph with a picture and credit as part of neurological impairment. No matter what Trump does he is on a downward slide. My hunch is as he becomes less and less able to face reality his drug use will increase to a point he’ll need to be hospitalized.

  6. Digital Unicorn says:

    The boos will only enrage him and make him more determined to sh!t all over her wishes and legacy. We all know how badly he reacts to not being praised and ‘loved’.

    • Darla says:

      Well, he was going to do that anyway. And cowering is not a good response to a sadistic bully, it makes them want to hurt you more. And standing up to them makes them want to drive you to your knees. You basically can’t placate him either way, so might as well stand.

      • B n A fn says:

        Thank you Darla, he will be enraged booed or not. He’s is always enraged about something. If you are not kissing his lard a$$ is disrespecting someone.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        Thank you Darla, wonderfully said. Please watch this, what I’ve been trying to say for a while, said by a much more eloquent person.

        Never run from a bully, even if you lose the fight. They’ll be a little less eager to come for you if they know they’ll get a few punches thrown back at them.

    • holly hobby says:

      My kids’ coach used to tell me if you punch a bully on the nose they’d leave you alone forever. Deep down bullies are cowards. Never give them the power to hurt you.

  7. Aang says:

    I believe the PA polls. I drove through an area of north west PA, a rural area that abuts a National Forest and the PA for Biden signs outnumbered the trump signs. I counted. One house even went full out with huge Biden signs and multiple flags. The kind of enthusiasm usually displayed by trump voters. So in my anecdote at least PA is looking hopeful.

    • lucy2 says:

      Surprised and thrilled for Northwest PA. I went to school in central PA, grew up outside of Philadelphia, and the rural areas always felt VERY conservative to me.
      I live in a red county now, and work in a very wealthy area of it, and have seen a lot more Biden stuff out in just the last week. It’s good to see. Still some gross Trumpers around, but not as many as before. I’m hoping the Blue Wave happens again and it’s enough to push some conservatives out of the local government too, they’ve had a strangle hold on it for decades.

      • aang says:

        It was around Warren, on the Allegheny River. Absolutely beautiful area. They have a small hospital and the state mental hospital also has a large facility there so I think the area is red but with a considerable population of well educated healthcare professionals.

      • Lobstah says:

        I’m in west Michigan, and as I drove down the highway this morning past several farms, and their giant Trump signs, I was shocked to suddenly see a giant Biden Harris sign at one of the farms. I know, it was just one sign, but I’m telling you – that’s something. I actually yelled “hell yeah!” in my car. It was a little burst of hope.

  8. Edna says:

    That was glorious hearing the boos and chants of Vote Him Out. You know his fragile ego couldn’t stand it and he most likely went back to the White House and threw a MAJOR temper tantrum just like the toddler he is. I can’t stand that man.

  9. Edna says:

  10. sara says:

    He went there during the day too when people were working. If he had gone in the evening while I was there you would have heard the boos around the world.

    • Indywom says:

      Now if the Obamas showed up and the crowds cheered loudly, it would drive him totally out of his mind.

  11. Noki says:

    Who would even want to stay President knowing so many people dispise them, its the USA its not like other countries ruled by cruel Dictators who will have you killed if you even think about disrespecting them or their government. He sees it on social media,SNL ,the news. He KNOWS people hate it him!

    • Miranda says:

      And the thing is, even in many those countries that DO have dictatorial leaders, people eventually get fed up with that shit and protest anyway. Look at Belarus. Look at the Arab Spring. Look at Romania under Ceausescu (whose fate I wouldn’t mind happening to Trump…). Totalitarianism is, in the vast majority of cases, unsustainable.

      • Jerusha says:

        Surprised that got through. I suggested the Ceausescu fate for trump and melania months ago and got censored. Still a good idea, imo.

  12. Lolo86lf says:

    It was so rewarding for me to hear him getting booed. Last night the orange POS falsely claimed that he got the Latin vote and his cult base believed him!! What a disgusting lying a-hole.

  13. Darla says:

    The actual duly elected President. Hillary Clinton, also went and she was not booed.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I wondered how she and BC were received. I saw a still photo but no video and no news blurb about their appearance.

      I want BO and MO to show up and get a sustained ovation. that’ll KILL orangina.

    • Ummm says:

      The popular vote has never and will never elect an American president – nice try.

  14. Joan Callamezzo says:

    This made my day yesterday. VOTE HIM OUT! HONOR HER WISH!

  15. Lizzie says:

    Betcha he thought they were cheering him initially.

    • Miranda says:

      I’m pretty sure he convinced himself that they were. Just as he was convinced that he won the popular vote, and that his inauguration had a bigger crowd than Obama’s. “These people love me! They were saying ‘boooo-urn dissenters at the stake!'”

  16. elisabeth says:

    it looks like the mask is covering his entire face

  17. Ariel says:

    They weren’t paying RBG any respect. They were taking advantage of a photo op to “look presidential.”

    • Miranda says:

      You just KNOW he was screaming at his staffers and throwing a fit because no one had any tear gas handy this time.

    • Edna says:

      Try as they might, they can never “look Presidential.”

    • Lightpurple says:

      No respect at all. It was a photo op. They didn’t even approach the casket or acknowledge it was there in any way. The Clintons went yesterday too and the photographs are markedly different. They stood to the side, heads bowed in prayer, Bill reaching out to the casket.

  18. Sigmund says:

    I am sick over RBG and the likelihood we will lose Roe. Absolutely sick over it. The only, ONLY small thread of silver lining is that this may push enough people over the edge finally to replace Trump with Biden. But it’s still so awful.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Burn this sh-t to the ground and stack the f-cking courts.

      Remember whats at stake here….children caged and dying, ICE literally sterilising immigrant women, black men getting shot on the streets for turning their backs, the votes literally been binned in democratic areas, racism being openly stoked and encouraged, protesters being locked up and given long term sentences….I mean, I could go on for days.

      I’m certain no Democratic supreme court candidate will ever get confirmed again under a republican led senate.

      Stack the bloody courts and be done with it.

  19. Mina_Esq says:

    Trump was probably more worried about that mask rubbing off his cover-up makeup.

  20. Sarah says:

    I am now actively avoiding stories about him (I don’t even live in the US, I’m just so worried for you all and the impact he is having globally) but this is definitely a moment of zen. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Veronica S. says:

    I live in Pennsylvania. Keep an eye on it in coming weeks. Our governor is Democratic, but our state legislature leans Republican and so does our court. They’ve repeatedly tried to start sh*t recently, including refusing to let ballots be counted early and delaying it to put the Green party on, then had an official turn around and say that if the counting took too long they might just declare a winner, and hoo boy, people are pissed. Philadelphia isn’t just one of the biggest cities in the United States, it’s also one of the few where non-white ethnicities make up the population majority. If there’s a showdown in November or a backlash, that’s where I expect it to happen. We’ve already had some drama go down politically due to the BLM protests.

    • aang says:

      Philadelphia is also the birthplace of our democracy so it would be fitting. BTW Philly is one of my favorite cities. We visit every year for 4-5 days and I just love the vibe.

      • Chicken says:

        The one time I visited Philly, I was walking back to my hotel from a wedding reception in a nice gown, and some drunk assholes walked up to me and spit on me for … looking fancy? Sorry I attended a black tie wedding? Anyway, from then on, I assumed Philly was trash (also I’m a Penguins fan), but if they can hold their state’s shit legislature accountable, Philly will totally redeem itself.

  22. BlueSky says:

    Anytime he gets booed, an angel gets its wings!

    • Babz says:

      204,000+ angels got their wings because of this horrible man-baby. He hasn’t begun to get enough boos for that alone. But I do like your sentiment!

  23. Mrs. Smith says:

    A bit of good news: my red county was overwhelmed by the number of poll worker applications. I applied online, but never heard back. After a few weeks, the election commission sent an email to say the delay was because of the expected 150 applications, they received more than 1200! It made my day! This is Trump territory and they are a lazy bunch—no way they are lining up for this assignment. It gave me hope that people are paying attention, taking action and will vote on Nov 3.

    • Christin says:

      That is great news! I continue to believe the decent, good and conscientious are our quiet majority.

    • Trish says:

      I’m late to the conversation but just wanted to add: if you can’t be a poll worker, consider volunteering as a poll WATCHER. Contact your local Dem headquarters. Especially if you live in a red district…poll watchers are vital!

  24. Sarah says:

    The boos and chants were music to my ears. 🎵 You about to lose yo job 🎵

  25. Carol says:

    Haven’t we learned that the polls mean nothing. And any kind of bad press stirs the Trump lovers on.

    • Nonartistic Diane says:

      They can stay pressed…it’s their default setting. This was great to hear and see.

    • Milo says:

      The polls in 2016 didn’t account for uneducated voters turning out in record numbers. Since the 2016 elections polls have be recalibrated to account for the mistakes that were made then. So while they aren’t perfect, they have made corrections since they were so far off before.

  26. Juxtapoze says:

    Trump can’t even wear a mask correctly. Can’t spell as well as a sixth grader. Can’t pronounce his own name correctly sometimes (it’s on camera). Can’t be bothered to read security briefings. Vote this extremely unqualified moron out of office. #BidenHarris2020 #nomoreorangemoron

  27. SM says:

    You know what it reminded me of. The tyrant Nicolae Ceausescu. As the communist regimes started to disintegrate in 1989, Ceausescu decided that he would repress the uprising by force turning it into a bloody revolution. As he did that, he came out to the main square to get the fake reassurance of the people but was booed. He had to flee but was caught my his own military forces and executed.

    • Darla says:

      that’s the sexiest story I’ve ever heard.

    • Babz says:

      I likened them to Juan and Eva Peron, making their balconies appearances. Then when the crowds turned against them, they went inside and he sicced the army on the descamisados and the press. Juan Trump was biggly pissed yesterday, and we need to be ready for whatever retribution will come. I am frankly surprised that there wasn’t a mega tweet storm afterwards.

    • Jerusha says:

      Both Nikolae and Elana C were tried for genocide on Dec. 25, 1989. The trial lasted one hour. After the verdict they were taken outside and executed by firing squad immediately.

  28. shanaynay says:

    I don’t care if he is the man in the WH. Personally, I feel he had no right even being there.

  29. holly hobby says:

    Too bad RBG didn’t rise up from her coffin to slap the ever loving $hit out of him. That mask does not fit his face either.

    I hope all this booing hurt his little feelings. I’m surprised he didn’t send traitor #2 billy barr to throw gas at the crowds.

    On the other hand Moscow Mitch declined to attend (as most of those hateful GOPers). Perhaps he was afraid RBG would rise up from the dead to slap him too.

  30. ann says:

    Was it normal or tradition for them to flank her casket like that? It seemed so strange to me. Just curious. Love this community!

    • Babz says:

      Are you talking the people always standing there? Her clerks volunteered to be her honor guard the entire time she was there as a mark of their love and respect for her. I read also that Jewish tradition is that the deceased is not left alone.

    • ann says:

      I’m questioning Trump & Melana flanking the casket.

  31. Candikat says:

    That wasn’t paying respects, that was walking out a door and just standing there, more or less in the vicinity of the coffin. I don’t even get the point.

  32. Le4Frimaire says:

    He deserved those boos and so much more. He has not one redeeming quality and has willfully and gleefully damaged and divided this country. The whole GOP should just rename themselves the Trump party and stop pretending they care about democracy. I hope he keeps getting booed wherever he goes.

  33. Coco says:

    I almost wish he wasn’t wearing a mask so everyone could see his full reaction to this.

  34. Valerie says:

    Oh, so what was the change in body language then, Donny? Did you soil yourself?

  35. Valerie says:

    Why does it look like Melania is dying to throw out one of *those* salutes?

  36. Molly says:

    The best part was later when Reporters asked him about the booing he pretended he didn’t hear anything….LOL

  37. SJR here says:

    Trump is a complete waste of oxygen.
    And all his crooked, grifting relatives too.

  38. Rise and Shine says:

    That was a rare, wonderful and hopefully foretelling moment of beauty. YAY. Great while it lasted though because now it looks like Trump is setting up Amy Koney Barrett as his Supreme court pick. MY GOD! No, just no. She believes that the husband has the final say in the family, not women, INCLUDING EVEN OUR VOTES. And the majority of Trump supporters are all in. The women before us fought for our votes. Another example of how they want to send us all back. NO, NO, NO. VOTE BLUE.

  39. Alex says:

    If you don’t like Trump, vote for Biden. He is another old white man who has been part of the government 30 plus years, including right now.
