Ladies and gentlemen, we give you perhaps the dumbest take yet from someone who should definitely know better on Amy Coney Barret and originalism.
From Hillary Clinton:
At the time the Constitution was ratified, women couldn't vote, much less be judges. https://t.co/B0oxTT2nzt

We can’t believe what we just read:
Good grief. https://t.co/Zz0FqNjIRv

Let’s see what the late Justice Scalia said about this, shall we?

She can’t be this dumb:
You're either deliberately mischaracterizing originalism or you truly don't understand what it is. https://t.co/TLLieyifbn

Or maybe she is:
Hillary proves that she has no clue what originalism means. https://t.co/kEarR7Swqj

And Twitter should slap one of their misinformation labels on her tweet it’s so bad:
OMgosh and she's a lawyer. I know she isn't this stupid, but how many in America are! https://t.co/fJrOxcoEvF
