We normally only feature verified accounts, but Vanessa Grigoriadis says she’s a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, plus her tweet has racked up almost 5,500 replies. Unlike others, she’s not questioning the legitimacy of Amy Coney Barrett’s adoptions. She is, however, theorizing that Barrett is “telling a lie” by suggesting she’s a home-centered Catholic who puts family over career while still shooting for a seat on the Supreme Court.
Wow. They can’t call Barrett a gang-rapist, but they’re doing their best to match that low point.
I guess one of the things I don't understand about Amy Comey Barrett is how a potential Supreme Court justice can also be a loving, present mom to seven kids? Is this like the Kardashians stuffing nannies in the closet and pretending they've drawn their own baths for their kids

And if there aren't enough hours in the day for her to work and mother those kids, when she portrays herself as a home-centered Catholic who puts family over career, isn't she telling a lie?

Thank you! I see this over and over again that a man is not questioned about how he’s able to be so successful when he has children at home. Getting sick of it…

I have four boys ages 5-12. I’m a partner in an AmLaw 50 firm, serve on an appointed IRS committee, and hold five national ABA leadership positions. Oh and currently homeschool my boys. Is it easy? No. Possible? Yes.

Did Vanessa question how RBG had time to care for her health while performing the duties of a Supreme Court Justice? Or did she just assume RBG’s (mostly white) law clerks were writing a majority of her opinions?
— Uri Blago (@UriBlago) September 26, 2020
If RBG can do it from a hospital bed then Amy can do it and still have time to be with her kids. Working mothers always find a way to make it work

Your side tried to do this to Sarah Palin too. We are ready for your sexism.

How about you come right out and say any successful woman in her field that has 7 kids must be horrible mother instead of just tip-toeing around the awful point you are trying to make?
This says a lot more about you than ACB.

I'm having trouble keeping up with the moving goalposts. So now the left finds it problematic that a woman has a successful career, a healthy marriage, and a big family?

Well, that is the kind of question WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ASK!#women

Are you serious with this take? Remind me…how many kids is the correct number to have? And are women “allowed” to work outside the home or nah?

I wonder the same thing about being a loving, present dad to 5 kids while doing my corporate job 8 hours a day. Yet somehow I get up every day and make it happen, because commitment.

My mom ran a tailor shop from 7am to 6pm x 6 days a week. My dad worked a full time job. They gave unconditional love and a great home for 3 kids. We knew we were loved and learned to be self-sufficient, team players and independent thinkers. Love finds a way.

So at her job interview you want the interviewers to ask her about how she handles childcare arrangements? I know in job interviews I've conducted that sort of question would get you sued for sure.
