Trump And Ruth Bader Ginsburg Go Viral (Photos)

A photo of President Donald Trump with some of America's top legal luminaries is going viral all because of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg was appointed to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court by former President Bill Clinton. She made an appearance at a formal ceremony celebrating Mr. Trump's new appointee, Justice Neil Gorsuch, AOL reported.

The president had a front-row seat at the ceremony, but reportedly had no actual role in its proceedings. He sat alongside his wife, Melania Trump, at the side of the courtroom, a spot where former Supreme Court Justices and their families usually sit.

Some noteworthy guests included former attorneys general Edwin Meese, John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey, as well as many other Republican lawmakers. The number of Democratic representatives was significantly lower, according to reports.

Despite the low turnout, the attendance of liberal-leaning Ginsburg could not be overlooked. She was a part of a group photo that featured the president alongside several Justices, and her facial expression resonated with many social media users.

The photo was shared on Twitter by NBC News editor Brad Jaffy. The post also featured zoomed-in pictures of Mr. Trump's face and Ginsburg's face. Ginsburg, who has been a critic of Mr. Trump in the past, calling him a "faker" during the 2016 presidential election, did not appear too excited.

"My face has been that way since Nov 9," quipped one user.

"To be fair, that's resting rbg face," quipped another.

"RBG is rocking the Pope Francis," wrote another user, adding a photo of the pope during his recent meeting with Mr. Trump.

"Same expression I'd be wearing if I had to pose for a photo with him," another user tweeted.

"That needed no caption. RBG looks like she is spending her time in hell," another user wrote.

"We are all RBG... Or if a picture is worth 1,000 words, then RBG speaks for me!" tweeted another.

Other social media users were far more critical of the fact that the president was a part of the photo in the first place.

"All that intelligence in that room and Trump is president?" wrote the user. "We not only have alternative facts we are living in an alternate universe."

Mr. Trump has recently taken to Twitter to once again discredit the investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russia.

"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians,' nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!" the president tweeted on June 15.
