The liberal media has another ‘we’re all morons’ moment today right out of the gate on day two of the hearings regarding the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wasted no time asking the judge about abortion. She asked multiple times about Roe v. Wade and Barrett refused to give a direct answer because it’s not proper for a sitting judge to give an opinion about any case that may or may not come before the Court. This has been called the Ginsburg rule. It was invoked during Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings when he too was attacked by the Left for his supposed views on abortion. . .

That didn’t stop a bunch of journos from mainstream outlets from tweeting about how Barrett’s answer to this question was some ‘bombshell’ development. It’s not. You all knew this was going to be the answer. Also, you people wrote endlessly about the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy, her career, and he mark on American history. You didn’t know this was a rule or you ignored it in order to attack Barrett. Either way, you look like idiots.
Barrett refuses to give a straight answer on whether she agrees with Scalia (whom she clerked for) that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. Said she can't "pre-commit" to approaching a case in a particular way.

.@SenFeinstein asks three times and counting: Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that Roe v Wade was wrongly decided?
Judge Barrett is refusing to answer directly.
Instead, Judge Barrett says: I can't "pre-commit" and I have an "agenda" to decide cases as they come.

And Feinstein not only asked the question wrong but walked right into a bear trap https://t.co/dmlcrq5alp

Amy Coney Barrett won’t say if she believes Roe was wrongly decided as Scalia believed. Says “its contours” could come up before the court and says “I don’t have any agenda.” Feinstein says “it’s distressing not to get a straight answer.”

Feinstein asks if Barrett believes that Roe was wrongly decided. Barrett says that because the legal issues around abortion are still being litigated, it would be wrong for her to express any views, especially as a sitting judge

Amy Coney Barrett explains why she decided to dance on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s grave and accept an illegitimate nomination from a criminal president because.. she likes the rule of law
