After running the gauntlet of angry Democratic Senators who want nothing more than to block her Supreme Court nomination, Amy Coney Barrett came through like a champion.
Barrett maintained her poise, answered all questions with dignity and respect, and carried herself in a way that the democrats didn’t seem prepared for.
Needless to say, Barrett ran circles around the Senators, and made them look dumb.
In Sean Hannity’s words, the “unflappable” Judge Barrett made the Senators look “stupid, unprepared, and desperate.”
A Sean Hannity points out, Barret made Democrats look stupid.
Here's the story from Fox News:
Judge Amy Coney Barrett "ran circles" around Democratic senators on day two of her Supreme Court confirmation hearings with her "calm, unflappable demeanor and a solid command of facts," Sean Hannity said Tuesday.
"She made them, frankly, look stupid, unprepared, desperate," the Fox News host told "Hannity" viewers. "She exposed the absolute hatred that now defines this new radical, insane, and extreme Democratic socialist party."
Hannity pointed to one exchange in which Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas., asked Barrett about her preparation and whether she had brought notes to help with the hours of grueling and highly technical questioning on judicial matters.
“You know most of us have multiple notebooks and notes and books and things like that in front of us,” Cornyn said. “Can you hold up what you’ve been referring to in answering our questions?”
With a smile, Barrett held up the blank notepad that had laid in front of her.
Amy Coney Barrett maintains her poise when questioned by Democrats
The U.S Sun has more on Amy Coney Barret, who is being hailed as "unflapable:"
The 48-year-old judge was hailed as unflappable as she faced an 11-hour grilling over her views on abortion, health care and the peaceful transfer of power after the election.
With her family sitting behind her, Barrett refused to be drawn on her personal views and insisted she would decide cases "as they come".
Firmly, she said: "Judges can't just wake up one day and say I have an agenda".
She also brushed aside Democrats questions about the upcoming election, tell them she won't allow herself to be "used as a pawn".
Republicans are rushing to install a 6-3 conservative majority in the court ahead of the election on November 3 following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Barrett, a mum-of-seven, was nominated by President Donald Trump.
She has faced questioned over her conservative views, but insisted at the hearing she will remain impartial.
"It's not the law of Amy, it's the law of the American people," Barrett said.
At one point, Senator John Cornyn asked her how she prepared for the tough questioning and pointed out how most of the senators had stacks of notes in front of them.
The 68-year-old Texas Republican said: "Can you hold up what you’ve been referring to in answering our questions?
"Is there anything on it?"
Barrett replied "the letterhead that says 'United States Senate'" and held up the blank notepad, prompting laughter at Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.
He responded: 'That's impressive.'
Democrats are strongly opposed to her appointment, yet are unable to stop her and appeared stumped by her calm, measured responses to their questions.
Trump appeared pleased with her performance, saying as he left the White House for a rally, "I think Amy's doing incredibly well."
Barrett even cited RBG while responding to questioning from Democrat Dianne Feinstein - asking if she agreed that the Constitution does not guarantee a right to gay marriage.
She said: "Justice Ginsburg with her characteristic pithiness used this to describe how a nominee should comport herself at a hearing: no hints, no previews, no forecasts.
"That has been the practice of nominees before her, but everybody calls it the 'Ginsburg Rule' because she stated it so concisely and it’s been the practice of every nominee since."
The judge claimed she has also been in a "media blackout for the sake of my mental health" as she accused the press of "caricaturing" her Catholic faith.
And she insisted she has made "no commitment" to the White House as Democrats claim Trump nominated Barrett under the assumption she would work to overturn Obamacare and undermine abortion rights.
Barrett also said she "fully respects the rights of the LGBTQ community" after facing a grilling from Mazie Hironoand Cory Booker about her use of the term "sexual preference".
