As President Trump is preparing to announce his Supreme Court nominee for the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leftist filmmaker Rob Reiner is calling the left to go to war.
Reiner took to Twitter to say, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave. This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them.”
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell announced soon after news broke of RBG’s passing on Friday that, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
President Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate are determined to replace RBG before the election and they have all the tools to do so.
