  2. Even if you disagree with her, this is no surprise.

      @Ash Roskell Are you kidding ? So burisma and ukraine mean nothing to you ? Biden is part of the establishment and a crook. Trump is just a crook that is not part of the establishment . But joe has been at it 40 + years and now is gonna fix things , really ? we need to look past all these clowns to find a POTUS

    • @Dakoda Sb Maddow wouldn’t have brought this up had Barrett been Pro-Choice. RM’s very clearly making an argument in support of her own bias. It’s what she always does. She NEVER criticizes people on her side of the political spectrum. To her, they’re apparently all saints. And no one’s paying me but now you’ve got me thinking, maybe you’re the one with the paymaster.

    • @Ash Roskell Despite his clear mental digressiveness & that pesky (& unfortunately very believable) sexual harassment issue, Biden is, after all, the Second Coming, making him everything that’s good & right making everyone who opposes him & his potential Presidency everything bad & wrong. Closed single mindedness sure does make things simpler.

      *Jesus on Abortion, blood on the hands of your doctors…*

      Wednesday, January 22, 2020: (Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children)

      Message to John Leary

      Jesus said: “My people of America, you are seeing the true choice you have made of either having live children or dead babies. You have chosen to legalize the killing of My unborn children. You have killed millions of children over the years, and for this, your country will pay dearly when you are taken over by the deep state communists. If you could see how quickly your doctors take a life out of the womb, you could not stand looking at the blood on the hands of your doctors. You are sacrificing your babies up to the gods of convenience and money. This injustice of man is happening all over the earth, as you are compounding the sins of fornication with sins of murder in your abortions. If you do not change your laws soon, you will lose your country to your enemies. Pray to stop abortion, and continue to protest on Saturdays by the Planned Parenthood clinics. Many people are protesting at your March for Life by your Supreme Court building every year on this January 22nd of the anniversary of Rowe vs. Wade’s Supreme Court decision.”

  3. Since when does personal preference or opinion have to do with running for any type of government position?

      @Nanker Phelge thing is we have no say, it’s the senate. And she makes it seem like the Senate is uninformed on her stance.

    • this is different. these judges actually make important decisions that they have to live with for life. They can’t bail. And abortion loving democrats hate anti=abortion SCOTUS judges. They like judges that do not consider killing living human beings to be murder if the victim can’t fight back

      @Jesse Harrington The majority of the country had this stuffed down their throats.

    • @mph seti That’s nice. Don’t care, and frankly most of those “supporters” don’t even know what roe v. wade did, and they won’t see the difference when it’s gone.

    • @kcotte59 No one loves abortion, lol. We just want it to stay legal and available. “pro-life” really just means “anti-woman”.
      Also, a zygote is not a person. Ask a medial professional or a biologist.

    The Catholic Conservative Judge with 7 children is pro-life… also, water is wet.

    • @K Granger R’s are closing any places where a woman can get birth control. They are being forced to bear unwanted ted children. I don’t see a lot of research on male birth control.

      @Dakoda S See, what you said means NOTHING. It’s just words. You made no points, no arguments, nothing. And that is the problem today. So many people speak but actually say nothing.

      You being one of them 😁

      @Mary V What? You comment made absolutely zero sense 🙄

    • @Christopher McAuley that was a comment from people complaining about Trump. Like he is not susspose to do but one thing at a time. Multi-tasking. We mulitask all the time as I said do dishes and laundry at same time.

      @Mary V 😉

  5. Whoa wait, whole up… the Conservative catholic woman is pro life??? I need to sit down.

  6. Of course this is what the senate has time for

  7. To quote the exalted one “elections have consequences “

      90+ Million Orphans And Unwanted And Under-Nurtured Children In This World And The Want To Bring More In?
      We’re Living In The 21st Century, Not The Stone Age. Besides, We’re Already On The Verge Of Total Overpopulation.

      It’s actually 5, remember? She racially kidnapped the 2 black kids and propped them up as pawns to parade around in case she was put up for the Supreme court 15 years later.

      …according to the non-racist left

    • Just remember, whatever your beliefs…after her pretty non-eventful hearings, is when the big smears will come out to try to discredit her. Same thing happened to brett kavanaugh. That’s what they’ve tried in the past, and what they’ll continue to try here.

      @68’ Rumble Bee I agree and they want to take affordable health care away too. Doesn’t make much sense.

    • @68’ Rumble Bee Trump separated children from their parents and put them in cages, that’s how much he cares about the lives of children. Their lives are forever ruined because they are too young to recall facts to find their parents again. Bill Barr will keep lying to act as Trump’s personal lawyer in the misuse of his power, like Jeff Sessions did.

  10. Yep you nailed it! Breaking news right here! Whoa Nelly! Stop the bus!

  11. She has the right to oppose anything.

  12. Richard Madcow doing and saying what it typically does… a whole lot of nothing, aside from biased opining.

    So apparently this guy doesn’t understand religion convictions?

  14. Remember when you basically had a breakdown over an election not going your way? Oh, now you’re in control of your emotions and morally superior? Lmfao!!! Someone get this middle aged man off of MSNBC. LMFAO

  15. Judge Amy Coney Barrett said although she tried to be on a “media blackout for the sake of my mental health,” she acknowledged she was aware of the caricatures the left had used to criticize her. “Look, I’ve made distinct choices,” she said. “I’ve decided to pursue a career and have a large family, I have a multiracial family, our faith is important to us, all of those things are true, but they are my choices.”
    Barrett is a Catholic mother of seven children, two of them adopted from Haiti, and one special needs child with Down Syndrome.
    She said she spent her life “brimming” with other people in her life that made different choices and respected those choices.
    “I’ve never tried in my personal life to impose my choices on them and the same is true professionally,” she said.
    Barrett acknowledged the confirmation process to ultimately sit on the Supreme Court was “difficult and excruciating” that would have an impact on her family and her personal life.
    “We knew that our lives would be combed over for any negative detail, we know that our faith would be caricatures, we knew our family would be attacked,” she said.
    Barrett said she and her husband discussed the scrutiny that they would face and chose to embrace that suffering.
    “Why should I say that someone else should do the difficulty if the difficulty is the only reason to say no?” she asked. “I should serve my country, and my family is all in on that because they share my belief in the rule of law.”

    Watching the Barrett hearing this morning. Nothing very interesting until Sen Whitehouse spoke. He had a lot to say about how dirty money has had the agenda of loading all the courts. I sure hope they post is comments. He chose to make a statement rather than quest Barrett.

  17. When they sign those papers thats like a CV to the people who your trying to reach, or let know who i am ,simple.

  18. Oh wow, look at the downvotes. Usually you Putin bots don’t visit MSNBC.

    Is it wrong to think this way. Why are we getting judged for protecting life in 2020. Can news do thier job?
