Can a dead President still nominate a SC justice?

I don't wish death on anyone, I do believe in karma. Honestly, trump was already really looking bad lately before Covid. His reported drug use can't be helping his old ticker. He could pass away ... quickly maybe. Modern medicine will do all it can to save his life but this virus has mowed down over 205,000 Americans, he is only human just like them, after all.

What happens with lamey amy?

3. Amy may have infected so many Republicans they can't hold the hearings in time, and then she might

have to quarantine for a while anyway before the other Justices would let her into their chambers!

6. Hasn't She Already Been Nominated?

That took place last Saturday. She would have to be retracted at this point.

7. Yes. Once the President has made the nomination his input is done

The justice will be confirmed or not without the further input of the President unless he withdraws the justices from consideration.

If there is Karma in the world both Trump and Pence are incapacitated by COVID and Pelosi becomes President temporarily. She withdraws handmaid judge Amy and resubmits Garland for confirmation. Even if Mitch blocks it, it shows how he is a 3x hypocrite (flip, flop, flip). Pelosi remains President until Biden is sworn in. Biden keeps Garland for confirmation. The now Democratic Senate confirms him a little over four years after Obama originally submitted him.

Probably 10,000 to 1 chance of that happening but a guy can dream right?

9. No he can't and we need to have a state funeral for Trump and all that good shit and it takes time,

so many leaders and mourners will want to show their feelings. The logistics to get his BFF here from NK will be so time consuming. It will take at least 4 or 5 weeks for his supporters to process their grief so we can get him planted.
