Precedent be damned, Trump is on the move and has a mission. According to Trump himself, he has now advised the Senate to proceed with a SCOTUS pick at all costs and without any type of delay. On Friday, iconic SCOTUS pioneer Ruth Bader Ginsburg abruptly died from complications of metastatic cancer.

We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!” Trump said on Twitter. Meanwhile most people with common sense; decency, and decorum have noted that they should follow their own words and wait until after the election.
