Replacing Justice Ginsburg — an assortment of tweets.

Yes, we should probably turn over the appointment of a Supreme Court justice, whose job it is to uphold the Constitution, to a group of people threatening to pack the court, impeach for pure politics, and add states willy-nilly. Can't see the downside.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 21, 2020 Morning shows conveniently ignored these clips today... pic.twitter.com/kSDaRiER4D— Jason Miller (@JasonMillerinDC) September 21, 2020 Mr. President, this is low.

California Republicans: Give a call to your GOP cousins in swing states

Of course he did. I never had...
