    Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🤕

    When will Americans learn

    This woman is dangerous.

  3. Barret is another Bill Barr. Only difference is that she will continue to stink long after Trump is gone.

    So, even Barrett’s apology shows her unconscious bias coming through; her inability to be unbiased and impartial is very clear as she has shown.

      @Tara Reade Nope. Any nominee that doesnt believe we are all equal is unqualified. Period.

    • @M18 Hellcat Yup, that too would describe t’rump, who needs two hands to drink a glass of water.

    • @Mary Sue Echols Who said she thinks like that? How do you feel about Trump supporters?

    • @Ro G I got hairy legs,that,that,that,that,that turn blonde in the sun and kids would rub my legs and jump on my lap and that taught me about roaches! Athlete’s Foot Face Dementia Joe Kid Touch Corn Pops Fingers! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

    • @Tara Reade 👈 Says the person / woman / man who comments under two different names: Tara and Bud.
      National Coming Out Day was this week. I applaud your bravery. 👏

  5. I find it interesting that they’re trying to get an idea if this person is mentally, as well as professionally qualified for the job ahead and her main response has been she is not qualified, she is not comfortable answering questions.

    Not qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice.

    • Well, you are the renowned expert

    • @William H Music 2020 So William, since you troll around here for months now, what’s your sexual preference? If you care so much about what others are into we’d like to hear about the filthy fetishes YOU and your alt-accounts are into. I’m sure you’re into the real nasty stuff, am i right? 😉

    • Yep, Barrett was cocooned in Notre Dame for 20 years so that she would not have a judicial record. Her handlers got her the recent Judge appointment so she could claim experience, but they made sure she would not be there long enough to make any serious rulings.

    • Wendy Shackelford | October 13, 2020 at 9:02 PM | Reply

      @Bella Borges she has 3 years experience, and they want her as a SCOTUS?? Terrible idea!

      Can’t believe this is 2020, not 1620.

    Interracial marriage wasn’t originally in the Constitution either! 🤦‍♀️
    What I mean is that it’s appearance in the Constitution should not be the litmus test to it’s need to be ruled on and made *very rightly* the Law of the Land!

    • That’s why originalism is crap.

    • Anissa Roberts | October 13, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      @Irene Powell I agree 100%!!

    • Exactly. The Republicans always have some asinine answer that all should just accept.

    • Anissa Roberts | October 13, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      @Robin Potter and it’s nearly always [definitely always] based on their religious ideology.

    • The Blessings Of Jesus Channel | October 13, 2020 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      The Father, Son and Holy Spirit say male and female only.

      What GOD SAYS GOES.

      “Male and female created He them.”

      There is no such thing in God’s View as “sexual preference.” God gives NOBODY that “option.”

      Isn’t that too bad for this rebellious world that in vain fights The Living GOD?

      Never ever “apologize” to anyone that gets “offended” for what God has already established forever.

      Man never determines what truth and right is, ONLY THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT DOES.

  8. Daily Reminder: Trump called Corona Virus a Democrat Hoax that will “magically” disappear.

    She double talks. Sad what republicans are trying to do to this country to appease such a small percentage of the people.

    • @Sykotik Shadow As a disabled US ARMY veteran and Christian I was taught it’s not MY role to force my opinions down other people’s throats!! It’s not christ-like and it runs contrary to Jesus’s teachings.. I served this country to protect EVERYONE’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE even those that make choices I disagree with.. And I have no problem with that!! Maybe if more Christians excersized more grace in others choices-espically in the excersize of those choices, our country would not be so polarized and divided as it is today. FREEDOM=CHOICE!

    • Not a small percentage. What makes you think its a small percentage? The media?

      @Gary Kubodera that is spot on and I thank you for your service. It’s hard to find Christians who can share this same view.

      Double talks and condescending – a trump gem

  10. The “clutching of the pearls”, is a tale-tell sign of lying.

  11. She’s Biased already, Judgemental, in a Bad way.

    • superiorxinferior | October 13, 2020 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      She has too many personal opinions to be a judge

    • @superiorxinferior Man, I’m just listening and if you’re apologizing you’re lying.
      Or at least up to something you originally thought. My old girl is like that, and catch her when we were arguing or debating in the house she’d act like she never wrong. Lol

    • Every judge is biased. But are they biased towards the truth? Or in favor of falsehoods?

    • I’m personally a left sided individual, and I think this would be a wording error I could see myself make. The important piece of this video I think is that she clearly apologized for the mistake. If anything that’s good? I understand the frustration that she’s even being considered right now, I really do. But let’s look at this objectively, it’s all we can do.

    “I would never say anything offensive to the LGBTQ community (because it would hurt my image).” trump is poison and EVERYONE he endorses is suspect.

  13. Double talk, when answering a few questions. She’s manipulative.

  14. She’ll bring everything down a few notches. Evidently we haven’t gone backwards enough yet.

    Marriage, as a “defind” right does not exist anywhere within the Constitution, the thing is, according to the 9th Amendment TO the United States Constitution, they do NOT have to be defined within it.

  16. Never trust anyone who presses a hand to their chest when apologising.

      @Kevin Lee Shut up and go pay for my VA healthcare… Oh wait, pathetic fake patriot, Donald Trump just canceled it. How patriotic are you? Pay up or shut up. Who do I send the bill to for the years I spent in the Air Force defending your freedom of speech. You screw me. How do I screw you?

    • @William H Music 2020 troll not a hole

    • @Richard MacLean thank you for your service wh is a troll not a hole

    • Funny, that’s how the other half views Harris. To each his own.

  18. The Donald Trump presidency is the culmination of decades of the Conservative media selling fear, conspiracy theories and victimization to anti-science Christian extremists who believe that they alone have a divine right to control American society.

    Conservative Evangelicals approve of Barrett for reasons beyond her motherhood etc. Right wing religious agenda has been obvious for decades.

  20. Senator Hirono should have asked Amy Covid Barrett when she made up her mind and decided her sexual preference was to be a heterosexual female.
