If you can’t beat them, loot a city and then burn it down.
In what can be arguably described as the most pathetic and childlike response of the year, leftists are promising nationwide riots if Trump successfully fills Ginsburgs vacancy.
Hell, just the fact that Trump and Republicans are even talking about it has been deemed reason enough – in the eyes of the tolerant left – to start mass riots and unrest.
News of Ginsburg’s death on Friday night triggered an immediate heated political battle.
Far-left media figures threatened violent riots if Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refused to wait until after the election to fill the seat.
Former CNN host Reza Aslan responded by warning: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down.”
Washingtonexaminer.com reports: “If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots,” Washington Post and GQ writer Laura Bassett said.
Beau Willimon, a Writer’s Guild of America president, told his roughly 162,000 followers that “we’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.”
There is historical precedent, as American Enterprise Institute fellow and former speechwriter for George W. Bush Marc Thiessen pointed out on Twitter, for Republicans to fill the seat so close to an election.
“*29 Presidents have had election year or lame duck vacancy -—all nominated someone,” Thiessen tweeted. “*8 x before election when other party controlled Senate — only 1 succeed. *10x before election when Pres and senate controlled by same party — 9 succeeded.”
