Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) raised his sanctimonious voice during the first day of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s evaluation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Echoing the tired Democratic talking point that Judge Barrett’s nomination is “illegitimate,” Sen. Booker criticized the Republican majority for confirming Judge Barrett while the country feels the effects of COVID-19.

Sen. Booker forgets that it was his own party who blocked discussion on, and eventually passage of, the last relief package proposed by Republicans. 

Sticking with Democrats’ misleading message, Sen. Booker said that voters should decide who nominates the next Supreme Court justice. What he does not disclose in his sanctimonious opening statement is that the American people did decide, both in 2016 when they elected President Trump and in 2018 when the American people expanded the GOP’s majority in the Senate after Democrats’ despicable behavior during then-Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Sen. Booker's infamous "I am Spartacus" moment lent no favors to Democrats' credibility with judicial confirmations.
