Her dying wish

“The granddaughter of Ruth Bader Ginsberg says Justice Ginsberg’s ‘most fervent wish’ was to not have a replacement chosen by Pres. Donald Trump.”

Headline at KXAN News.

Good luck with that.

UPDATE:  When the political shoe was on the other foot, however, she was gung-ho to get ‘er done:

“When a similar scenario occurred four years ago, following the death of Antonin Scalia, the Republican-controlled Senate blocked Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. It was a controversial move, and Ginsburg had something to say about it:  Ginsburg publicly called on the Senate to go through with the nomination.

That’s their job,” she said in July 2016. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the President stops being President in his last year.”
