The passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has sent a shockwave through the country.
An already contentious election just got even more heated because of the critical court vacancy.
But it’s sent the Democrats over the edge.
The Democrats were praying that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would stay alivelong enough to see a Democrat reclaim the White House and name her replacement.
Sadly, Ginsburg lost her latest bout with cancer.
And her death has sent the entire left into a tailspin.
During one of her recent hospitalizations, several prominent leftists and celebrities broke out votive candles and offered to donate their organs to her.
Now, with fewer than two months until the election, Donald Trump has the opportunity to fill a third Supreme Court seat and it’s just too much for the Democrats to fathom.
Following the news of Ginsburg’s death, former CNN host Reza Aslan tweeted irresponsibly about Democrats burning down the system and “literally” laying down their lives:
Over our dead bodies. Literally. https://t.co/rQbvuKakHU

In an interview with Clinton-hatchet man George Stephanopoulos, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t rule out the possibility of impeaching Trump yet again.
“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Pelosi tells @GStephanopoulos when pressed on what Democrats would do if Republicans move to confirm a Trump SCOTUS pick in a lame duck session if Biden wins. https://t.co/Xgu46wHrLVpic.twitter.com/YcxJup6ZML

Many prominent Democrats and left-leaning news outlets have talked about how the Democrats should pack the Supreme Court because the Constitution doesn’t mandate there be nine justices.
The mere suggestion shows how unhinged the Democrats have become.
Even Ginsburg herself spoke out against the radical idea of adding more justices.
During an NPR interview, Ginsburg said, “I have heard that there are some people on the Democratic side who would like to increase the number of judges…I think that was a bad idea when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to pack the court…”
But that isn’t how the system works.
Democrats have tried to point to hypocrisy on the part of Mitch McConnell by not bringing Barack Obama appointee Merrick Garland to vote during a presidential election year, but McConnell was talking about when the White House and Senate are controlled by opposite parties.
Historically, when there’s a vacancy and the Senate and White House are split, the seat is left vacant – only two out of ten justices have been seated under those circumstances.
Conversely, when the White House and Senate are controlled by the same party, a new justice is almost always seated.
The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh got unbelievably ugly in 2018, but the battle for Ginsburg’s seat could be even worse.
