President Donald J. Trump presided over a historic milestone for female equality on Friday, as the recently departed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.
Nancy Pelosi, who became the first female speaker of the House under the leadership of President George W. Bush, welcomed mourners to the Capitol building as they gathered around the historic flag-draped casket. Ginsburg's minion army of woke stans, meanwhile, logged on to their social media accounts and urged the "notorious" justice to "rest in power."

Trump's brief political career has coincided with a number of remarkable female achievements. In 2016, Hillary Clinton became the first woman in history to lose a presidential election. Trump's beautiful wife, Melania, became the first foreign-born presidential spouse since Louisa Adams in 1825. His stunning daughter, Ivanka, became an influential voice in his administration.
Ginsburg's historic achievement is almost certain to be followed by yet another example of Trump's steadfast commitment to female equality. The president has already indicated that his forthcoming nominee to replace Ginsburg on the Supreme Court will be a woman. Amy Coney Barrett is widely considered to be the frontrunner for the seat.
