It is safe to say that an incumbent president has never been booed weeks before election day when he showed up to pay his respects to a deceased Supreme Court justice.
Trump’s push to fill RBG’s seat is very unpopular with a wide majority of voters. The booing at the Supreme Court is another piece in a growing list of circumstantial evidence that Donald Trump is a one-term president walking.
Trump has built up less than zero goodwill with the American people, and when he tries to act presidential he is consistently like a bad organ in the national body politic.
A president who has spent every moment of his political career dividing the nation is feeling the consequences of his actions, as America is showing every sign that they are about to reject Donald Trump.
