President Trump will pay his respects to Ruth Bader Ginsburg Thursday by visiting her casket at the Supreme Court.
“The president will pay his respects to the late justice on Thursday at the U.S. Supreme Court where she will be lying in repose,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told reporters on Wednesday.
The casket arrived at the Supreme Court on Wednesday morning. A private ceremony is being held for family and friends.
Where do they get phrases like this, “lying in repose”? Of course, she is in repose. She’s very reposed. In fact, she is so reposed, she is deceased.
The phrase is meant to distinguish from lying “in state,” which you can only do in the U.S. Capitol. She will eventually make her way there, but while at the Supreme Court, she is in repose.
Anyway, I do hope they have elaborate security planned for Trump’s visit, which will be viewed as an insult by the left.
