If Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away and President Trump were proposing to replace her with conservative justice, the media’s outraged tantrums would at least be understandable.

Compare that to the lack of Republican outrage when Obama replaced Justice Souter and Justice Stevens, in theory Republicans (though well on the liberal side on the court) and Republican appointees, with Kagan and Sotomayor.
Nobody threatened a civil war over it. Or shouted that the sky was falling.
