The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has Democrats in mass hysteria.
The thought of Donald Trump getting a third Supreme Court nomination is too much for them to bear.
And one former MSNBC host said something about Justice Ginsburg that enraged Democrats.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg tragically lost her decade-long battle with cancer.
She became a pop-culture icon among the left in her later years, so her death truly sent Democrats reeling.
They had hoped she could hold on until after Inauguration Day.
Nevertheless, she passed away and Trump was sure to pay his respects when reports first broke the news.

Even members of the left acknowledged that Trump’s response was genuine and heartfelt.
Matthews responded to Trump’s gesture on Twitter:
Trump is right to show respect for RBG. True presidential behavior. Far too rare.

Leftists on Twitter predictably went nuts and many slammed Matthews or downplayed Trump’s kind words.
Coincidentally, Matthews was forced out of the network not long after the left torpedoed the #MeToo movement in an attempt to shield Joe Biden from accusations made by a former staffer.
But the real reason Matthews found himself on the outs was likely because he began to rail against Bernie Sanders and the ascendant socialist left.
Matthews is a JFK Democrat who holds no fondness for communists, a position that puts him at odds with the growing radical faction within his party.
With Trump’s selection of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a contentious confirmation hearing is on the horizon.
It’s hard to believe that anything could ever top the despicable behavior from the Democrats and their media allies during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, but Democrats are already brainstorming on how they can break the rules to get their desired result, i.e. a vacancy until they can install Joe Biden as president.
For decades, the Democrats have assumed that the Supreme Court would enforce any bad law they couldn’t get through Congress.
But with Trump getting another pick on the court, the progressive idea of a “living Constitution” will have to take a backseat.
Barrett is the protege of Justice Antonin Scalia, which makes her a legitimate threat to the progressive agenda.
