Beware the Idiots of August

It's not technically the Ides of August, so I had to subtly change the title of this August 15th post. Today's fresh hell is the brigading of the Supreme Court switchboard by idiots who are convinced that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead and are demanding 'proof of life':

This particular subset of troglodytes can never be satisfied, even if they saw RBG in person, they'd be convinced that they are seeing a 'body double' or a 'clone'. Apparently they have been calling the Supreme Court all day and have often been directed to call their congressional representative or senator.

The 'RBG is Dead' trope is based on wishful thinking by awful people, but it received a big boost last January, when Fox displayed a graphic announcing that the justice had died. It's a horrible trope pushed by horrible people, and I feel sorry for the dedicated public servants who had to deal with these idiots.

Sadly, I don't think things are going to get better anytime soon.
