NPR reported that before she passed Ginsburg told her granddaughter, Clara Spera “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Twitter users blasted the argument.
“Follow the Constitution”
“which clause is that in the Constitution, Senator?”
“Dying wishes don’t override the US Constitution”
“How about the fact that it bears absolutely no weight whatsoever on the process of filling a SCOTUS vacancy.”
“Which has nothing to do with the Consititution. NEXT!”
“A wish is not a law.”
