Senator Dianne Feinstein just won’t let off the pedal for her hatred of Amy Coney Barrett.
The Senator has had some controversial things to say about President Donald Trump’s selection for Ginsburg’s vacant SCOTUS seat.
After criticizing her for her devout catholicism, now Feinstein is on the attack again.
This time though, Feinstein said something we can all agree on.
She warned on Twitter that Barrett would “stand as the polar opposite of the vision of America that Justice Ginsburg fought for decades to achieve.”
Of this we agree.
That’s the whole point!
The Washington Times has more on Feinstein's comments:
Senate Democrats on Saturday immediately labeled President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett a health care villain and vowed to block her confirmation.
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said a vote for Judge Barrett would be a vote to dismantle Obamacare, as the fate of the Affordable Care Act will be before the high court in November.
“President Trump has once again put Americans’ healthcare in the crosshairs,” said the New York Democrat, sounding a familiar alarm from his party about Mr. Trump’s nominee.
But Mr. Trump’s opponents face a difficult task in demonizing Judge Barrett, a devout Catholic and mother of seven children who would be the first female justice with school-age children.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, objected that Judge Barrett would reverse abortion rights and health care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
“President Trump has guaranteed that Judge Barrett will deliver on these and so many other conservative priorities. In doing so, Judge Barrett would stand as the polar opposite to the vision of America that Justice Ginsburg fought for decades to achieve,” she said. “The Senate should not consider any Supreme Court nominee until the American people have spoken in November and the next president has been inaugurated.”
Feinstein is of course the same woman who told Coney Barret "the dogma lives loudly in you."
Feinstein is just throwing anything she can right now at this selection.
In throwing her temper tantrum, at least she said something true by mistake.
The attack on Coney Barrett's faith however, is uncalled for.
Feinstein suggests Barrett's religion will get in the way of her duties
As Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Fox News, Dems like Feinstein are showing their true colors by attacking Coney Barrett:
Democrats are willing to "demonize" Amy Coney Barrett in an effort to derail President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee out of spite, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said Sunday.
Blackburn, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will approve the nominee, made the comment on "Fox & Friends" after two of her Democratic colleagues said they will not meet with Barrett, characterizing her as an "extreme jurist who will decimate health care."
"I think it is very petty of them not to even open the door and sit down and have a conversation," Blackburn said, "but ... this is how the left treats conservative women."
Democrats repeatedly indicated that they will oppose Barrett’s nomination, citing her conservative credentials which they see as a threat to health care and abortion rights, while also arguing that it is too close to Election Day for Trump to nominate a justice.
Thanks for the "warning" Feinstein.
