Twitchy’s done at least three posts today about people questioning the legitimacy and motivation behind Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s adoption of two Haitian children. Were the adoptions legit or shady as hell? Does she know that “transracial adoption is fraught with trauma”? Did she adopt black children to subconsciously assure herself she’s not racist?
But now that Barrett’s officially been nominated, we’re getting the statements from the Biden campaign, and the official line of attack seems to be that Barrett has expressed opposition to Obamacare and wants to take your health care away. (Kamala Harris is also keeping Roe v. Wade at the forefront.) We’d thought Biden had said in the primary debates that climate change was our No. 1 issue, but we guess it’s going to be health care. Or jobs. Or the coronavirus pandemic.
Not surprisingly, Harris tweeted that she strongly opposes Barrett’s nomination. After all, she was “hand-picked” by President Trump … which is kind of how it works according to the Constitution.
Trump’s hand-picked successor to Justice Ginsburg’s seat makes it clear: they intend to destroy the Affordable Care Act & overturn Roe. This selection would move the court further right for a generation & harm millions of Americans.
I strongly oppose Judge Barrett’s nomination.

….is that in comparison to the Supreme Court nominees that aren't "hand-picked" by the president? https://t.co/iPfsc7cd3J

I love how they keep saying "hand-picked" as though most nominees are drawn from a hat or something. https://t.co/XSEGfkZb5g

"Hand-picked"? Did you think Supreme Court justices were picked by pulling a name out of a wheel? https://t.co/nMrIRfdMGL

Trump's "hand picked" successor.
Yeah Sen. Harris. Do you know how the Constitution works? Every Supreme Court justice was "hand picked" by a president. https://t.co/UgtopjAgce

“ginsburg’s seat” is not exactly the sort of language i like to see from a member of the senate judiciary. https://t.co/dY7CqptaEZ

It. Was. Not. Ruth. Bader. Ginsburg’s. Seat. It is a vacancy on the Court.
— Blaknsam (@Blaknsam) September 26, 2020
That seat does not belong to Ginsburg. It belongs to the American people.

They should cancel the Judiciary confirmation hearing. The senators have already made up their mind, and each gets to meet privately with Barrett for any remaining questions.
The only purpose of the confirmation hearing is "Character Assassination Theater" for the TV cameras. https://t.co/r1G04oBhG6

☑️Kennedy was going to be a "disaster for women"
☑️If Souter was confirmed "women will die"
☑️That John Roberts was responsible for the bombing of an abortion clinic
☑️That abortion would be *illegal* by January when Kennedy retired
This is all they know. https://t.co/Tr9C8aHT96

Congress writes the legislation.
Supreme Court justices rules by the law — and that is exactly why Judge Barrett promised to do.

We’re still wondering about the optics of Harris going after Barrett like she did Brett Kavanaugh. Should be enlightening.
