Watch as President Donald Trump nominates Amy Coney Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Barrett, if confirmed, would replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the high court bench.
She would become the third Justice confirmed to the Supreme Court by Trump in his first term as President. Trump’s already gotten Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the bench.
Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
Barrett served as a clerk for the late-Justice Antonin Scalia.
“I fully understand this is a momentous decision for a President,” Barrett said. “I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution.
“Should I be confirmed, I will be mindful of who came before me,” she added.
Barrett praised Ginsburg in her comments at her nomination ceremony outside the White House.
“She was a woman of tremendous talent and consequence,” Barrett said.
Barrett is married to husband, Jesse, and they have 7 children together.
Liberal Meltdown Begins in 3, 2 …
It took no time at all for liberals to attack Trump and Barrett.
Sens. Sleepin’ Bob Casey and Cryin’ Chuck Schumer wasted no time telling everyone how Barrett is going to take away your healthcare … especially in the middle of a deadly pandemic, an issue that’s purely just a scare tactic and talking point.
Remember, the pandemic goes away when they want to take to the streets over anything.
A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic.
Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care.https://t.co/e3pWbFWRDm

Sleepin’ Bob woke up in time to fire off this tweet thread reacting to Barrett’s nomination:
It’s been only a week since we lost Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, yet President Trump and Senator McConnell are rushing to confirm a Supreme Court Justice who will back their lawsuit to destroy the Affordable Care Act, kicking 23 million people off their health insurance…
