I know, “She’s brilliant.” That’s what the GOP says about SCOTUS nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.
No, she isn’t. She can’t even say “Yes” to a yes or no question about whether the POTUS can change the date of the election (he can’t).
IF she actually knew the USC, she’d know that. Hell, my 8th grader knew that years ago.
And she was asked today by a GOP Senator what the five freedoms were in the 1st Amendment.
She didn’t know. SHE.DID.NOT.KNOW.
I mean, I don’t expect most people to know, either. But she isn’t vying for title of “Most People.” She’s vying for a position that literally (in her view) interprets the Constitution.
How do you NOT know what’s in the 1A if you’re a damned federal judge vying for SCOTUS?
By the way, it wasn’t a “gotcha” question. It was asked by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).
It is telling that the one freedom she couldn’t name was that of PROTEST.
Because, y’know, protesting is only done by thugs and criminals that “belong” to Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
I fucking hate self-proclaimed conservatives in this country. Y’all should be ashamed of yourselves. But you have no shame.
