(Right Country) – The Supreme Court confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett is officially underway as Senators gave their opening statements Monday morning. While Republican Senators stayed on topic and focused on the SCOTUS and Barrett, Democrats used the opportunity to slam President Trump and politicize the entire process. Among these Democratic Senators was former failed presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar (MN) who used her time speaking to push the tired, oft-debunked lie that President Trump has “refused to condemn white supremacists” as well as other disproven false narratives.
“We have a president who divides our country each and every day. He has called our military suckers and losers. He’s refused to condemn white supremacists, and he has the gall to hold up a Bible as a prop in front of a church instead of heeding its words, to act justly,” Klobuchar said.
As various media outlets have recently highlighted, not only has President Trump condemned white supremacy and racism but he has done so more than any other President in American history.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Two days after the incident in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, Trump said, “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups”:
A month later, the president signed a congressional resolution condemning white supremacy.
In 2019, following shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Trump said, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.”
“These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul,” he added.
During the first presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump, “But are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia group and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we’ve seen in Portland?”
Trump responded, “Sure, I’m prepared to do it.”
Klobuchar also said Trump called fallen soldiers “suckers and losers” — an uncorroborated claim popularized by the Atlantic. As Breitbart News reported, “more a dozen current and former Trump administration officials have publicly and demonstratively denied the claims in the Atlantic article — including former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who has become a Trump critic.”
Klobuchar also claimed that Trump used a Bible as a prop, though she did not mention the fact that Trump chose to walk to St. John’s Episcopal Church as a response to protesters setting it ablaze.
Klobuchar continued her tirade saying, “We are dealing with a president who doesn’t think truth matters.”
“And he has allies in Congress who in the past defended our democracy but are now doing his bidding,” she continued, slamming the GOP for starting the confirmation process despite some members saying in Obama’s final year that the “president in the election year should wait” until after the election to move with a Supreme Court nominee. Of course, the circumstances were completely different then but don’t count on Democrats to be mindful of details or truth.
Injustice, she continued, can move at “lightning speed, as we are seeing here today.” She also spoke to Americans watching the hearing from home that they cannot “separate this hearing from the moment we’re in and from the judge he’s trying to rush through.”
“This is a rush to put in a justice,” she said, and then noting the “profound impact” it could have on their lives in regards to school choice, healthcare, marriage and, of course, abortion.
“We have a president who has refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power after an election. Every candidate does that. But not this guy,” she said, blasting Trump for firing or replacing inspector generals, an attorney general, FBI director, and now “going after their replacements.”
Naturally, she didn’t point out the fact that Joe Biden has said he will not concede should he lose on Election Day. Klobuchar perfectly illustrates the reason why it’s so important for Congress to do their job and confirm Judge Barrett. The left is coming completely unhinged. The level of propaganda being touted as fact is beyond appalling. Should the seat be left vacant, America would be in for the biggest constitutional crisis in our history after the election.
It’s time to vote out the lying, unscrupulous politicians like Klobuchar.
