Donald Trump Accuses Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Granddaughter Of Lying: “I Don’t Know That She Said That”
Donald Trump has responded to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s granddaughter, who relayed the Supreme Court Justice’s last wish from her deathbed to the world, by declaring her a liar. He says that Ginsburg’s last message to the Americn people “sounds more like it was written by Schumer and Pelosi.”
Speaking by phone to Fox News hosts, Donald Trump addressed Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish: that her seat not be filled by this administration. He dismissed the words, declaring that they could be made up by Democrats in Congress as an attack on him.

Well, I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff or Schumer or Pelosi. I would be more inclined to the second. Okay, you know, that came out of the wind, it sounds so beautiful. But that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or a Shifty Schiff. So that came out of the wind. Let’s see.
In her last days, NPR reports, Ginsburg dictated her statement, her last wish, to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, who has followed her grandmother into the legal profession. Spera passed the words on to the world: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
The wish carries no legal weight, and neither Spera nor Ginsburg suggested such. However, rather than dismiss it accordingly, Donald Trump chose to publicly suggest that it’s a lie, leveling an attack on the integrity of Ginsburg’s family and legacy only a few short days after her death, while the nation, and her family, is still rocked by the loss of her.
