As the confirmation hearings drag on, Judge Amy Coney Barrett leaves Democrats looking like fools after they constantly attack her.
Democrats Lash Out
The Supreme Court nominee faced insanely inappropriate questions from Senate Democrats and some of the attacks happened in from of her children.
One instance includes when Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono asked Barrett in front of her children if she ever engaged in sexual assault against someone.
The Democrats did not back down with their anger over justice by a Republican Senate in an election year. This is not the first time this happened. There have been 19 times where a seat became vacant in an election year, and 17 of those times resulted in a judicial confirmation.
Barrett Keeps Her Cool
Despite a barrage of slander from leftist 48-year-old Barrett held her own and managed to dispel the Democrat over and over again.
When it came to her two adopted children from Haiti, she responding to Sen. John Kennedy about the issue.
“Senator Kennedy, it was the risk of people saying things like that, which would be so hurtful to my family, that when I told Senator Graham this morning that my husband and I really had to weigh the cost of this, it was saying deeply offensive and hurtful things, things that are not only hurtful to me, but are hurtful to my children, who are my children, who we love, and who we brought into our home and made part of our family,” Barrett said. “And accusations like that are cruel.”
Sen. John Kennedy asks ACB about Boston University's @DrIbram saying that she is a "white colonist" for adopting two Haitian children:

In current society, many on the left disregard the constitution and some have even stunted to abolish it altogether.
Clinging to the Constitution
Barrett is a constitutional originalist and she explained her judicial philosophy.
“Because I think that both statues and the Constitution are law,” Barrett said. “They derive their democratic legitimacy from the fact that they have been enacted in the case of statutes by the people’s representatives, or in the case of the Constitution through the Constitution-making process and I, as a judge, have an obligation to respect and enforce only that law that the people themselves have embraced.”
“As I was saying earlier, it’s not the law of Amy, it’s the law of the American people,” Barrett continued. “And I think originalism and textualism, to me, boil down to that, to a commitment to the rule of law to not disturbing or changing or updating or adjusting in line with my own policy preferences what that law requires.”
Perhaps the greatest moment for the judge was when she was asked to show her notes she was using. Barrett held up a blank notepad showing she did not rely on notes to answer the many questions she endured.
