Amy Coney Barrett set the internet afire this week when she held up a blank notebook to show she wasn’t relying on notes. She was remembering points about old cases without needing to refer back to paperwork to job her memory. A more substantive exchange was when Barrett was asked advice she would give to young women.
Despite her obvious qualifications for the Supreme Court, progressives latched on to Barrett’s strong religious background. A hitpiece by the Democratic Party’s cheering squad, aka the mainstream media, asserted that a religious group Barrett was at one time a member of called People of Praise was akin to the storyline in the novel The Handmaid’s Tale.
Disgraced ex-congresswoman Katie Hill tweeted and then deleted her tweet in which she said: “I hate to be someone who judges women on their clothes but I’m sorry ACB’s outfits are all way too handsmaid-y.”
Barrett stayed above the fray despite the fact Democratic senators interrupted her 78 times during her confirmation hearings.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel spoke up for Barrett, saying the interruptions were “met with zero cries of sexism or mansplaining, from the media.”
