We thought third-wave feminists thought women grabbing power was a good thing. We also thought Amy Coney Barrett’s speech following her nomination to the Supreme Court was a good thing. Journalist Christine Grimaldi, though, thought the whole press conference was a display of Barrett weaponizing her white womanhood to grab any power that slipped through the unrelenting misogyny of the Trump administration.

We’d have embedded the tweets, but Grimaldi seems to have protected her Twitter account.
Probably for the best. pic.twitter.com/7WzgX7OAKS

You feel empty and incomplete as a woman, angry, resentful. Abortion was supposed to give you a sense of strength and feeling of power. But instead, you are a shell of a human. You should reexamine your life, determine what makes ACB a happy person and mimic her.

Lordy. It’s been a banner day for blue checks and their vile racist, sexist attacks on ACB.

A woman being elevated to the highest echelon of the judiciary being evidence of runaway misogyny is one hell of a take.

White woman says other white woman is weaponizing her white womanhood.

I'm curious, are you honestly not aware that you're just envious?

You are insane. This admin has more women than any previous.
This Justice is an amazing woman with both family an exceptional legal career.
You must have never known joy.

Racist AND sexist.
And yet ANOTHER example of gender pronouns in bio = no one to take seriously.

That you think family is a prop of "white womanhood" says more about you than it does her, white woman.

The ocean called, they’re running out of salt.
I did not vote for Trump in 2016, but I have been pushed over the edge by the attitudes of people like you. I will be voting for Trump in 2020, and if he wins, remember that you are partly to blame for his second term.

You missed the chance for the liberal trifecta by not mentioning she’s also personally responsible for killing the planet by having such a large family. I’m disappointed in you.

This whole tweet is from an entitled white woman dissing somebody who’s light years ahead of her in maturity and evolution.

We wish we’d caught the whole thread, but we’ll have to wait until the ratio dies down and Grimaldi opens her Twitter feed back up.
