A day after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was found dead, with no witnesses to her death and no suspect found, things kicked off with strong reactions from Vice President Mike Pence, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and President Donald Trump himself.
As night fell, the president was living it up in the Rose Garden with the state department in the background, firing questions at Sanders, who had earlier warned a member of the press corps that she would speak up if they leaked a blistering quote from the vice president about his White House press secretary.
