What an awful thing to say.
My best wishes and hopes to Justice RBG for her swift recovery. As she has shown again and again, she is tough as nails. https://t.co/CNJS9f0fVi

This is not how a healthy human being talks about a fellow human being.
You are sick, dude, which is why you had to pay millions of dollars to the females who were unfortunate to work for you. https://t.co/ASwPqZuhC0

She's beat cancer twice. Wishing ill on the health of your political adversaries is tasteless. Buzz off, Bill. https://t.co/5IIVw3eWYs
