Judge Amy Coney Barrett only just hours ago became the top contender to fill the Supreme Court seat once held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but already, she’s being viciously attacked by the left.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders revealed the shocking and disturbing news during a recent appearance on Fox & Friends. According to Fox, President Donald Trump’s former press secretary said the attacks against Barrett are “disgraceful” and a sign of prejudice against Christians.
“A revealing moment”
Democrats say they believe in religious freedom and respecting women — but as Sanders noted Tuesday, their actions with regard to Judge Barrett paint a totally different picture.
According to Fox, Barrett is a 48-year-old “judge with the Chicago-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit” who is known as a “conservative, pro-life Roman Catholic.”
She was once considered for the seat now held by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Fox noted, but apparently stayed on President Trump’s radar.
Now, Sanders says, she’s facing the wrath of the anti-Trump left.
Pointing to “what is already happening” to Barrett, Sanders said those on the left “are already viciously attacking this conservative woman for her pro-life stance, but also, for her religion, for the fact that she is a working mother of seven,” according to Fox.
She went on: “This is a revealing moment for all of America and I think it will show what Democrats really think about women, and certainly what they really think about Christians, how they handle this nomination should it be Judge Barrett.”
“A very solid move”
Sanders also spoke Tuesday about the impact that nominating Barrett would have on Trump’s re-election campaign. “I think it certainly energizes a lot of the Republican base, which absolutely has to turn out in big numbers for the president,” Sanders told Fox & Friends.
She added: “I think it’s a very solid move by the president to pick a conservative woman like Judge Barrett.”
President Trump, for his part, has promised to announce his final pick, which he said will be a woman, by the end of the week.
“I think that would be good for the Republican Party, and I think it would be good for everybody to get it over with,” Trump said this week, according to the Boston Globe.
