Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris was actually much lower key in her questioning of Amy Coney Barrett than one might have expected after her showboating at the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, but that’s likely because she used a good deal of her time to give a campaign speech rather than ask questions.
The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill was impressed by Harris seemingly putting Barrett in her place by reminding her that she’s no Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Senator Kamala Harris just reminded Amy Coney Barrett that she is no RBG and regardless of what she said, she has already tipped her hand on how she feels about abortion and health care.

She is no RGB. We are looking forward to her confirmation. It's time to celebrate.

And we may thank God for both. It means she values human life and the Constitution, not judicial activism.

Right. Cuz RBG is dead. So ACB will fill her spot. Therefore she is not RBG.
Also she's an originalist. So yeah not into the whole killing babies bit. https://t.co/hDWZka7Fhp

She’s not supposed to be RBG or any other justice. She is supposed to be an independent thinker who applies the law. https://t.co/bG6fe3dEhN

Policy feelings are not the law. And I can assure you that Judge Barrett has no desire to be RBG. https://t.co/hGeVmsewhJ

Yes, ACB is no RGB (thank goodness) and yes, she prefers not to dismember living children. https://t.co/bk4tgJWG2w

“She is no RBG…” Who the hell cares whether she’s RBG or needs to be reminded of that fact? Is this a school playground? So many of our media personalities and politicians are total children. https://t.co/ffJkEEmwlK

She’s the Glorious ACB, to be precise.
