    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says boos and chants aimed at the president as he visited the Supreme Court on Thursday to honor the last Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg were “appalling.” “I think that the chants were appalling, but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the swamp,” said McEnany during press briefing. “I travel with the president all across the country, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Nevada. And everywhere we go, the streets are lined with support like I don’t think any other president has had previously.” Crowds gathered near the Supreme Court could be heard booing, chanting “Vote him out” and “Honor her Wish,” as Trump and his wife Melania stopped near Ginsburg’s casket. Trump walked back into the court as the chants grew louder. The president is expected to announce his nominee to replace Ginsburg on Saturday. He has said he will select from a list of five women. Republicans are working to move quickly to a confirmation vote, possibly even before the Nov. 3 election. Ginsburg’s granddaughter has said it was Ginsburg’s wish that a replacement justice be chosen by the winner of the November presidential election. When asked about that, McEnany responded “I’ve noted before, twenty nine times has an appointment been made in an election year.” “That was all twenty nine times when there was a vacancy at hand. So the precedent is very much on our side here,” McEnany said.
