The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has sent shockwaves across Washington and the nation. Liberals in particular are utterly beside themselves with grief, not only at the sadness of Ginsburg’s death but also at the certainty of President Trump replacing her with a far more conservative judge.
After Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing on Friday evening, distraught Democrats and liberals lined the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington to vent their shock and anguish by collectively singing the lyrics to John Lennon’s iconic song ‘Imagine’:

By Saturday mourning a large shrine had been assembled to honor the fallen liberal jurist, and crowds continued to gather as the flag waved at half-mast:
While the mourners at the Supreme Court were mostly composed and respectful many liberals on social media had far more unhinged and bizarre reactions to Ginsburg’s death [WARNING: Graphic Language]:

There is no way in the world we're going to let the Republicans fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat. If the Democrats lose this battle every single one of them should be tossed out of office. The precedent @GOP set with Merrick Garland is crystal clear! Under no circumstances!!

The prospect of Trump doing his constitutionally appointed duty and selecting a replacement for Ginsburg to be considered by the Senate is apparently just too much for many liberals. But if they’re this mad now, just imagine how triggered they will be when Trump selects a strong conservative woman to fill Ginsburg’s shoes.
