President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court was just attached. Judge Amy Coney Barrett needs the prayers and support of all Americans — what happened is shocking and depraved.
During an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) called out Democrats for their “depraved” attacks against Trump’s judicial nominees, including Judge Barrett, on the basis of religious beliefs.
Sasse noted how “the Constitution explicitly says no religious test,” yet “Democrats in each of the last four years attack nominees because of their religion.” He has had a front-row seat to this nonsense on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“It’s not just depraved,” explained Sasse. “It’s dumb. And we took it to the Senate floor and rebuked them, and they didn’t even bother to come and defend it, because it was indefensible.”
Sadly, it isn’t going to stop. Liberals have already been attacking Barrett over her Catholic religion and even accused her of being a “white colonizer” for adopting two children from Haiti. It is a kind of bigotry only the left can serve up.
But the votes have already been counted and the rest is commentary. By the end of this nonsense, Barrett will be confirmed by the Senate to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and we will have another constitutionalist on the court.
