During an Election Day press call, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi labeled Amy Coney Barrett an “illegitimate Supreme Court justice”. Just as they did not accept the results and have still not accepted the results of the presidential 2016 election, it’s not surprising the way they are treating ACB and her appointment to the Supreme Court.
Pelosi had this to say on Tuesday, “The president is installing an illegitimate Supreme Court justice just one week before the election, after 60 million Americans have voted, who will dismantle the ACA and won’t say, by the way, when asked by Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein, do you think Medicare is constitutional? She said she really couldn’t say.”
Barrett’s appointment to the high court means there are now six justices who were confirmed under Republican presidents, and three justices appointed under Democratic presidents – a balance that Democrats fear does not properly represent the values of American voters.
Democrats flatly rejected the GOP’s push to confirm Barrett just one week before the general election after millions of Americans had already cast their votes.
Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats boycotted the initial vote that would push through Barrett’s confirmation process late last month, prompting the committee’s Republicans to unanimously consent to advance her appointment.
The move pushed forward by Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., broke the committee’s rules, which requires at least two members of the minority party to be present in order for there to be a quorum to “transact” business.
Graham disregarded the rules and held the 12-0 vote, without a single Democrat present.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., responded angrily and said, “To call this process illegitimate is being too kind.”
He added: “Senator Graham has broken the rules of the committee to move forward with a vote on Judge Barrett to rip away health care from millions.”

The American people oppose this.

The Democrat’s have fought against everything the Trump administration has tried to do even before he was president. Pelosi calling anyone illegitimate is laughable at best.
WATCH: ACB Reacts to Disgraceful Racial Comments About her Family
After weeks of vicious attacks, Amy Coney Barrett reacted to the “cruel,” racially charged comments about her family during yesterday’s Senate confirmation hearing.
Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) told Barrett he wanted to give her a chance to respond to the hateful comments from Boston University professor Ibram Kendi, who wrote on Twitter, “Some White colonizers ‘adopted’ Black children. They ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity.
Sen. John Kennedy asks ACB about Boston University's @DrIbram saying that she is a "white colonist" for adopting two Haitian children:

“Some butthead professor at Boston University says that because you and your husband have two children of color that you’re a white colonist,” said Kennedy. “The implication is that you’re a racist and that you use your two children as props. Do you use your children as props?”
Barrett Replied, “Senator Kennedy, it was the risk of people saying things like that which would be so hurtful to my family that when I told Senator Graham this morning that my husband and I really had to weigh the costs of this it was saying deeply offensive and hurtful things things that are not only hurtful to me but are hurtful to my children…who we love who we brought home and made part of our family and accusations like that are cruel.
“Yea they are. How low can you go?” replied Kennedy.
WATCH: Shameful Moment Dem Sen Says “Hell No,” Gives Thumbs Down During ACB Vote
The same Democrat Senator who asked Amy Coney Barrett—the Catholic mother of seven—if she ever sexually assaulted someone, sank to new lows during last night’s Senate confirmation vote of the now-Supreme Court Justice.
As the Senators voted to confirm Barrett, Mazie Hirono (D-HI) walked up to the table on the Senate floor and gave a thumbs down motion and said, “hell no.”

Earlier this month at the Senate confirmation hearing, Hirono embarrassed herself when she asked Barrett if she had ever committed sexual assault.
Hirono began her questioning by citing a 2017 interview with Chief Justice John Roberts where he stated the judiciary is “not immune” from issues of sexual assault.
The senator said to “ensure the fitness” for any nominee to a lifetime appointment, she asks each appointee two questions.
“Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any physical or verbal harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” Hirono asked.
“No, Senator Hirono,” Barrett responded.
“Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?” Hirono then asked.
“No, Senator,” Barrett said.

If the ACB confirmation process has taught us anything, it’s that you can always count on Democrats to throw tantrums and act disrespectfully and unprofessionally when they don’t get their way.
