    Trump White House urging allies to prepare for possible RBG departure
    Bear in mind that this picture is Ruthie
    Before she fell and before her surgery.
    You can see that her batteries are low.
    The fact that she hasn't been seen in public for three months is very telling.

    The White House should always have a short list of candidates. You can fault Trump for a lot of things; not this.

    The White House isn't preparing anything. If an seat on the SC becomes available, a RWNJ think tank will tell Trump who to nominate just like they did with the last two openings.

    Nothing unusual here. It is among the very infinitesimally small competent actions the Trump WH has taken.

    No ill will toward RGB and hoping for a full recovery.

    But isn't the White House putting the cart before the horse?

    She only has to make it to November and then we are inside a year before the 2020 election. According to the McConnell Rule once we are inside a year of a General Election then the Senate will not proceed on any SCOTUS nomination waiting for the "people to speak" through the November election.

    You have a point.. However I doubt that McConnell will hold back... Being courteous
    to Lefty only encourages him to screw you harder. But I am sure they will bring it up
    Along with accusations of child molestation
    Against Barrett.

    Given posts like this, the vegetable is obvious and it isn't Ruth.
