‘Five seconds of unity’ – Surreal Vid of moment Trump was told about RBG is already ICONIC, and the TALK of Twitter

The very moment that President Donald Trump was told about the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was on camera, as a reporter told him on the tarmac near his rally Friday night.

His reaction was very natural, very appropriate, and he honestly handled the moment well and with care.

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 agreed or not. She was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I’m actually sad to hear that.”



The arresting clip became the talk of social media overnight.

It really was something. It’ll be a lasting moment.
