They say even a broken clock is right two times a day.
Well… CNN just made an incredible admission on live TV!
The panelists were impressed by Judge Amy Coney Barrett's performance during the Senate hearings.
CNN's King admitted that:
In another age…Judge Amy Coney Barrett would be getting 70 votes or more.
King also admitted that most of the pushback is because she was nominated by President Trump.
If it were another president during another time, ACB would be getting a lot more support.
The rest of the panel seemed to agree with King's assessment.
See the stunning moment below:
Indeed, the entire panel seemed to be surprised by Barrett's strong performance.
They called her incredibly "impressive," "smart," and "confident."
It truly appears that the Democrats and their allies in the media are unable to land a single blow on ACB.
See them raving about her performance and qualifications in the following clip:
One of the many moments that caught people's attention is when Barrett answered Lindsey Graham's question.
Graham asked what it felt like to be nominated for the Supreme Court.
According to Fox News, here is how Barrett responded:
Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett said she expected attacks against her faith and her family when she was nominated to the high court, but that she and her family are "all-in" on serving her country. The Senate Judiciary Committee began grilling Barrett on Tuesday as her marathon hearing continued.
She spent the first half of the day being pressed by Democrats on abortion, ObamaCare and more, while repeatedly declining to weigh in on hot-button issues, invoking the so-called "Ginsburg rule."
"I've tried to be on a media blackout for the sake of my mental health," Barrett told the committee. "You can't keep yourself walled off from everything and I'm aware of a lot of the caricatures that are floating around."
She added: "We knew that our lives would be combed over for any negative detail. We knew that our faith would be caricatured. We knew our family would be attacked. And so we had to decide whether those difficulties would be worth it because what sane person would go through that if there wasn't a benefit on the other side?"
Barrett continued to say that the benefit is "that I'm committed to the rule of law and the role of the Supreme Court in dispensing equal justice for all. And I'm not the only person who can do this job. But I was asked, and it would be difficult for anyone. So why should I say someone else should do the difficulty if the difficulty is the only reason to say no?"
The hearing Tuesday began with impassioned broadsides from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), while Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein. D-Calif., attempted to drill down on Barrett's abortion stance, as well as her opinions on gun rights and the ACA.
"What I'm trying to do very briefly this morning is to demonstrate the difference between politics and judging," Graham, R-S.C., said as he opened the hearing before saying he would present his preferred health care vision.
By all objective measures, it appears as though Amy Coney Barrett's hearing is a massive success.
Instead of succumbing to Trump Derangement Syndrome, perhaps Democrats should actually look at ACB's qualifications and track record.
She certainly is impressive!
