It’s official. President Trump has kept yet another campaign promise and nominated a female to The United States Supreme Court. Amy Coney Barrett, a constitutionalist and long-time jurist on federal courts has been nominated to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Calling it a “very proud moment indeed,” Trump called Barrett a woman of “towering intellect” and “unyielding loyalty to the Constitution” who would rule “based solely on the fair reading of the law.
In a flag-bedecked Rose Garden designed to mimic Ginsburg’s own nomination ceremony in 1993, Trump recounted Barrett’s educational and professional background, noted her seven children and hailed her ties to another late Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia, for whom she clerked.
“I looked and I studied and you are very eminently qualified for this job,” Trump told his nominee. “You are going to be fantastic.”
In her own remarks, Barrett offered only a glimpse of what type of justice she would be and did not delve into specifics.”A judge must apply the law as written,” she said. “Judges are not policy makers.”Instead she sought to cast herself as a public servant — one who, at 48, could potentially serve on the court for decades.”If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle, and certainly not for my own sake, I would assume this role to serve you,” she said.
Liberals were quick to jump and attack the female judge. The congressman who pushed the Russian collusion hoax the most leading the charge, even though he has no power over the United States Republican controlled Senate.
Here’s why Republicans are rushing Amy Coney Barrett into a lifetime appointment: So she can strike down healthcare and overturn Roe v. Wade. Republicans also fear they’re losing the election and want her to deliver the election for Trump. No confirmation before inauguration.
Then former Vice President and Democrat nominee Joe Biden weighed in.
Conservatives like Candace Owens fired shots back at the Democrats.
Team Trump released the following congratulatory video.
