  1. She supports trump so I don’t support her!!!Trump is a failed business man w/NO KIND of political experience. Biden has political experience &we didnt go through this mess when he was in office w/ Obama#bidenForTheWin

  2. “We wept together, in my room.”?? Sorry but LOL😅.

      @Celldroid116 nah chief, game time gonna be when we pack the court. I mean, Texas GOP PACKED their states Supreme Court, so y’all shouldn’t have a problem with that right? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • @jade you keep misinterepring what they say, you’re HEARING through your fascist-leftist filter! You’re nobody’s judge.

      @Celldroid116 I’m a right wing British ..ha!

    • Now I don’t believe that for one minute though ! She probably said , as long as you with me you’re good , because your mom is rich and white ! And a judge !

    I’m sure it is. They probably sit and watch it every week along with Birth of a Nation. Make a bunch of popcorn, have a laugh or two.

  4. So her daughter lives in a cocoon but she doesnt know how to fix it 😏😏😏

    • Beautiful Spirit | October 13, 2020 at 4:50 PM | Reply

      A cocoon of “no violence or harm” which is the goal of all parents. Plenty of time to experience the opposite.

  5. Trump is an ungodly man supported by ungodly people.

  6. Sheldon Whitehouse nailed it! Hidden far right conservative money is behind her nomination and so much in the courts. Coney Barrett looked like a deer caught in headlights. This is the elephant in the room!

    • True. Unfortunately he looks and sounds like Stuart smalley so nobody listened. Maga 😉

    • Yes, I’ll have to re watch that part again! Sen. Whitehouse came with the receipts and poster boards. The small part that I was able to catch, turned my stomach. Hard working taxpayers are the suckers and losers for the wealthy.

    • Exactly 👍👍👍👍

  7. “Making it better”? Making racism better?
    Is that like making cancer better?
    The cancer sufferer needs to be made better by getting rid of the cancer affecting them.
    The racism victims need to be made better by getting rid of the racism affecting them.
    For such a supposedly clever judge, that was an easy return that she messed up.

  8. Barrett thinks she can actually explain what being black means in America or what it can be like or feel like. Even if she is their mom she will never experience what they will. Ever.

  9. She looks cold blooded…no emotion in her voice.

    She also only talked about HER family, not what happened to George Floyd, not about the black community…..very self centered.

  10. Hypocrisy for sure.. it is systemic racism but she wont say it…hmm..She aint no dommy… She also failed in the gun violence issue. She aint answering with honesty. Not worthy to occupy RBG seat.

    I didn’t have a problem with her answer. But we all know her bias, so let’s not be fooled.

      @L Hale – hey, maybe if your moron of a president actually led the country instead of expecting everyone else (the governors) to lead for him, NO ONE would have died in any nursing home.

      Let’s see how well you would do as a governor forced to do your best with zero cohesive leadership or help from the top.

      The governors who stood up to Trump are the heroes of all of this and your vitriol, run on sentence in caps doesn’t change any of that.


    • @Broken Winged Phoenix They are the CDC ???

      @L Hale – oh honey, at this point the only way your orange oopma loompa will win this election is if he steals it. (Which is exactly what that criminal is trying to do RIGHT NOW) Majority of Americans don’t want him.

    • Broken Winged Phoenix | October 13, 2020 at 8:04 PM | Reply

      @L Hale – yeah sure. Give a link on the CDC page where it says that? The death rate is 3% in USA.

    “I can’t be a racist because my [noun] is/are black!” cliche. (DING)

    “We wept together in my room,” and then immediately went out for pizza and icecream.

      Even though she said it has been an ongoing and difficult conversation for the whole family, just like the rest of the USA.

    • Ongoing for her family?? Guessing she doesn’t weep like a black mama that can’t ever escape race issues. Doesn’t have a clue her priveledge.

  15. She probably rented those kids

  16. Anytime a dimotard tells you you should agree with them, its gonna be wrong….. )

  17. She is patently unqualified by the only reason that matters; she, like a
    cynical opportunist would accept this job under the pall of such
    controversy. It’s that simple, given that these hearings are a crime
    against the American people, her only rationale for accepting the job is
    that she wants power. This fundamental character deficit should be
    obvious to all and will be an enduring stain on her.

  18. No it didn’t You didn’t do those kids any favors being a WHITE woman.

    • Not if she refers to them as her Black children.

    • That’s not true. Love is Love. Not everything in the world is about race and I’m Black American. I don’t live my life with the concept that I’m less than because I’m black. I know some may think it but that’s not my problem. Love is bigger than ignorance. As humans, love is who we are. We just sometimes forget it.

    Trump, McConnell, Graham & the rest of the GOP wouldn’t have given her their blessing unless she agreed to vote their way!

    if Barrett can not see that Trump is fraud and criminal, she is not qualified
