Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg becomes the first woman to lie in state in the Capitol

President of the United States Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last week at the age of 87, made history Friday by being the first woman and the first American Jewess to be commemorated on the Capitol in Washington.

The chest with Ginsburg’s body, often referred to as RBG, was in the Capitol. Typically, this only happens with deceased soldiers and presidents.

Dozens of prominent Americans attended the farewell ceremony, including President Trump and presidential candidate Joe Biden. Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris was also present.


Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Speaker of the US House of Representatives, inaugurated the monument. Ginsburg’s personal trainer remembered her too. The Chief Justice was known for her sports fanaticism, so her coach decided to do three push-ups out of respect.

Ginsburg’s death immediately created a couple in American politics. Her wish was not to be replaced until after the presidential election but President Trump wants to do so before the election. However, Democrats want to wait on this.

Although Supreme Court justices must be independent, in practice they are often politically biased. They heavily influence major bills in the United States, such as equality for gay couples, abortion, and gun laws.

The progressive Ginsburg can be replaced by Trump by a conservative judge as soon as possible. The name of Judge Amy Coney Barrett is mentioned frequently. CNN she said Friday, based on White House sources, that she will be nominated by the president on Saturday.
