The Democrats are losing their collective mind over the idea of President Trump nominating a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg passed away over the weekend leaving the seat vacant less than two months before the 2020 Presidential election.

In a statement dictated to her granddaughter, Ginsburg said, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Democrats immediately began using this as a political talking point.

Unfortunately, for Democrats, it isn’t up to Ginsburg to fill that seat, it’s up to the President and the people.

Marc Lotter, Director of Strategic Communications for the Trump 2020 campaign, joins Marc to discuss the President’s shortlist of potential nominees.

Lotter explains that this situation has happened many times in the history of our country and EVERY TIME the sitting President has nominated a replacement.

President Trump has stated he will wait until the end of the week.

Why the delay?

Despite an urgency to get the processes started, the President will wait to announce a replacement out of respect to Ginsburg and her family as she is laid to rest.
