Republican Doug Collins hammered for ugly tweet attacking Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 'You are garbage'
C-SPAN

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) was roundly trashed on Twitter on Saturday morning for not even making an effort to offer his condolences to the family of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she passed away on Friday night from pancreatic cancer, with the Georgia Republican instead attacking the late justice for her position on a woman's right to choose.


According to the GOP conservative, Ginsburg is responsible for the "murder" of "30 million innocent babies."

"RIP to the more than 30 million innocent babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws," Collins Tweeted just hours after Ginsburg's death was announced. "With @realDonaldTrump nominating a replacement that values human life, generations of unborn children have a chance to live."

Collins was immediately swamped with comments calling him out over his ugly comments.
