President Donald Trump was greeted with loud jeers and chants of “Honor her wish!” and “Vote him out!” during his Thursday morning visit to pay respects to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s casket at the Supreme Court.
The president was seen with his eyes closed swaying from side to side, as a trickle of boos grew louder and louder.
The crowd, clearly incensed by Trump’s determination to overlook the late justice’s dying wish to not be replaced before Election Day, then began to chant “vote him out.”
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump then turned and walked inside the building as the chants continued.

Ginsburg is lying in repose at the court today. Tomorrow, she’ll lie in state at the US Capitol.
The booing also came a day after the president refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power.
