Protesters arrived at Lindsey Graham’s house in Washington D.C. early am Monday to protest his decision to back President Trump on filling the SCOTUS vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Graham said Saturday “I will support President Trump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg.”
Activists chanted “No confirmation before inauguration” as they marched from Graham’s home to the supreme court. While at Graham’s home they clanged various instruments, used noisemakers, and spoke on a bullhorn.
