You know it’s bad when you have MSNBC’s Chris Hayes begging liberals to cut out their unfair attacks on potential Trump SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett:
Please read this, and stop with the “cult” stuff. Please. https://t.co/rRGnsMBzgS
— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) July 3, 2018
And in a double-whammy for the Left, the defense of Judge Barrett comes from Slate, of all places:
"Handmaidens"? "A lifelong oath of loyalty"? No, and not really. I talked to the leader of the religious movement that Amy Coney Barrett (allegedly) belongs to. https://t.co/GIZgqgqEVv

This all started when former Republican and now Democrat candidate for the Senate in Minnesota tweeted out this cult crap:
A religious group in which members take an oath of loyalty to each other and are supervised by a male “head” or female “handmaiden.” That looks like a cult. Now she wants a seat on SCOTUS for the sole purpose of overturning Roe v. Wade. The answer is NO.https://t.co/i3lb7nVJPU

Unfortunately for Chris Hayes, however, libs aren’t listening to him:
Cult or not is entirely irrelevant; she would be a nightmare on the bench for women and pregnant people. https://t.co/qzYuXU7dyG

Hayes’ mentions, to put it nicely, are a hot mess right now:

Here are but a few examples of what Hayes is reading this morning:
Please listen to #exvangelicals on this one. There is reason for us to worry, and it has nothing to do with the terminology of "handmaiden". It has to do with the structure of the group, their beliefs, and her personal beliefs vs being a possible SCOTUS member.

I live in South Bend. We have always thought of them as cultish. Why those outside of South Bend suddenly claiming otherwise is head scratching.

Srsly @chrislhayes? Perhaps YOU should read it again. Good grief.

After reading the entire story, I see nothing to change my mind that she is a terrible choice for Supreme Court…..maybe you should read it again!!!!

Says a wealthy white man who will surely be a Commander and not have to worry about the atrocities that the women and poor will face if this thinking is allowed to flourish in this country. People probably said the same thing when Hitler was gaining power.

Man, we hope Trump picks her just to watch the lib meltdown. It will be spectacular.
Did Chris Hayes just accidentally team up with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to expose Obama's immigrant 'black sites'? https://t.co/QMccoPybzq
