Conservatives Respond to Klobuchar’s Bizarre Opening Statement Attacking Trump During SCOTUS Nomination Hearing

Amy Klobuchar makes an emotional opening statement attacking President Trump, while Conservatives react on Twitter.


Amy Klobuchar launched into a bizarre tirade bout how much she hates President Donald Trump, rather than focusing on the Supreme Court Nomination, which was what she was there to do.

Klobuchar called the hearing a “sham” before diving into an emotional diatribe that appealed to the lowest common denominator.

Here's more on Klobuchar's ranting via Fox News:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., called the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett a "sham" while using most of her opening statement at the hearing to blast her Republican colleagues and President Trump.

Klobuchar said that instead of rushing ahead to fill a Supreme Court seat so soon before an election, the Senate should be working on passing coronavirus relief legislation.

"Yes Judge, I think this hearing is a sham. I think it shows real messed-up priorities from the Republican Party," Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar spoke about her husband and father, who both battled coronavirus, and showed an image of one of her constituents who succumbed to the illness.

"The president could have saved so many lives," Klobuchar said. "Instead, he's been reckless. Packing people in without masks for your nomination party, Judge Barrett. Thirty-five people got sick, the president himself ended up in the hospital, and when he leaves Walter Reed still contagious, he defiantly takes off his mask and walks into the White House."

Yahoo News has more:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., called Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing a "sham" on Monday as Democrats argued the hearing should not have been held at all.

Democrats repeatedly accused Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee of hypocrisy after they blocked former President Barack Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland for nearly a year before trying to confirm Barrett in time for the November election. Klobuchar said during her remarks that the Senate should be working on coronavirus relief rather than trying to rush through Barrett's nomination.

"Yes Judge, I think this hearing is a sham. I think it shows real messed-up priorities from the Republican Party," Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar also cited Barrett's criticism of the Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare, warning Americans that "your health care is on the line."

But amid her criticism, Klobuchar acknowledged there was little Democrats could do to stop Barrett's confirmation by the Republican-led Senate, urging voters to show Republicans that "enough is enough" at the ballot box.

"This isn't Donald Trump's country," she said. "It is yours."
