WATCH: ACB Reacts to Disgraceful Racial Comments About her Family

Sen. Kennedy gave Barrett a chance to respond to the hateful comments from Boston University professor Ibram Kendi


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.

“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: Insane Moment Dem Senator Asks Amy Coney Barrett if She Ever Sexually Assaulted Someone

I wonder if Sen. Hirono would ever ask these questions of the notoriously “handsy” Vice President Joe Biden?


Just when you thought today’s Senate questioning of Amy Coney Barrett by Democrats couldn’t get any more ridiculous, Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono actually asked the Supreme Court nominee—a Catholic mother of seven children—if she ever sexually assaulted someone.

Hirono began her ludicrous questions 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.

The Daily Caller points out that Hirono previously announced in 2018 that she would ask all Supreme Court nominees these questions.
In a January 2018 tweet, Hirono wrote, “Starting today, I’m asking nominees to our courts, under oath, whether or not they have a history of sexual assault or harassment. Like in other industries, our judges are in positions of power & #TimesUp.”

I wonder if Sen. Hirono would ever ask these questions of the notoriously “handsy” Vice President Joe Biden?

BIDEN: 56 Percent of Americans “Probably Shouldn’t” Vote for Me

The hilarious comment was made when asked his opinion of a survey that found that 56% of Americans said they were better off now than 4 years ago


Vice President Joe Biden said that Americans who say they are better off now, under President Trump than they were four years ago under the Obama Administration, shouldn’t vote for him.

The hilarious comment was made when he was asked his opinion of a recent survey that found that 56 percent of Americans said they were better off now than four years ago.

Biden was asked, “Gallup reported last week 56 percent of Americans said they were better off today than they were 4 years ago, [that] would have been under the Obama-Biden administration. So why should people who feel they are better off today under the Trump administration vote for you?”

Biden replied, Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t.”

He then incorrectly stated the percentage that was just referenced to him and said, “They think — 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”

 

Last week we reported on the news of the Gallup poll which found just 32 percent of Americans said they were worse off now than under the Obama Administration.

These numbers are particularly astounding considering the United States is in the middle of a pandemic.

This wasn’t Biden’s only gaffe this week. In a surprising twist, he actually took questions from reporters yesterday (only briefly, of course) and forgot Sen. Mitt Romney’s name.

When asked about judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court and whether or not her faith should be factored into consideration, Biden said, “You may remember, I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK? And I took him on. No one’s faith should be questioned.”

 

Later on that day during his speech, Biden also said he was running for the U.S. Senate: “You know, we have to come together. That’s why I’m running. I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate,” he said. “When I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I’m running as a proud Democrat for president. But I promise you this, I will govern as an American president.”
