Trump's Visit With The Supreme Court Gives The Internet A New Viral Photo

Both President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have been welcomed in a visit to the Supreme Court, where they were joined by top legal personalities for a formal welcoming ceremony of the presidential nominee for the Supreme Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch. The Trump family had no role in the courtroom ceremony, and the pair remained seated together towards the side of the courtroom while the proceedings took place. President Trump and Melania were seated amongst the former Supreme Court Justice as well as their family. According to reports, Democrat attendance at the ceremony was low, an unsurprising fact considering the Supreme Court’s 5-4 conservative majority has recently been restored.

While President Trump and his wife’s visit was a notable part of the event, it was the meeting between liberal-leaning Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or as she is colloquially known to the internet world, 'The Notorious RBG’, and President Trump that had online commentators going wild with speculation. Attending with former attorney generals Edwin Meese, John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey, Ginsburg had never made secret her dislike for President Trump, labelling him a “faker” during the 2016 presidential election.

Despite this well-known contempt, Ginsburg was still receptive to having her photo taken with the current president and his wife. However, the photo at the Supreme Court has taken the internet by storm after viewers noted RGB’s indecipherable facial expression. The photo, posted by user Bradd Jaffy, shows Ginsburg wearing a seemingly blank face, despite being surrounded by smiling attorney generals and the president himself.

The photo exploded online, quickly going viral, and triggered an enormous number of humorous and sarcastic comments, such as “RBG wants no part of this photo.” Another user stated, “The Notorious RBG knows where she is at, and it ain’t a place to make nice.” Other users were quick to dispel the speculations, stating that the claims were a stretch of the imagination.

President Trump’s visit to the Supreme Court may have been tense for several other reasons. President Trump’s blocked ban on travelers from six Muslim majority countries will now be taken to the Supreme Court, where the justices will make a final decision after the controversial policy was blocked by a Federal Judge from the lower courts. As a strengthened immigration and travel policy was so important to Donald Trump’s election campaign, the president is facing potential disaster if the justices decide to reject the implementation of the travel ban. Such an outcome would also open the door to further legal action if President Trump’s policy is found to be discriminatory towards Muslims, a flagrant violation of the Constitution.

While the Trump administration is urging the court to consider putting the ban in place while litigation continues, federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii refused to implement the ban of travelers coming from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. A judge from Hawaii even went as far as blocking a 120-day ban on refugees entering the United States.
