The very moment that President Trump was told about the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was caught on camera, as a reporter told him on the tarmac near his rally last night.
His reaction was very natural, very appropriate, and he honestly handled the moment quite well.
It’s a surreal clip. The night backdrop, the plane, and all the while music from the rally can be heard.
It’s the opening stanza of “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John, and its melancholy tune and the lament of the piano are oddly fitting.
“She just died? Wow. I didn’t know that,” he said. “She led an amazing life.”
“What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agree or not. She was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I’m actually sad to hear that.”
The video became the talk of social media overnight. Everyone was amazed of the Presidents reaction so they praised him on Twitter.
