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.
Asked about the booing and heckling before leaving for a campaign rally, Trump swore he never heard any of it.
“How did you feel about some of the chanting outside the Supreme Court? Vote you out? Uphold her wish?” a reporter asked.

“Well, I think that was just a political chant,” said Trump. “We could hardly hear it from where we were. Somebody said there was some chanting. They were right next to the media. We really couldn’t hardly hear too much. We heard a sound, but it wasn’t very strong.”
