Blackburn on Hannity: Democrats Already Preparing to Vilify Any Religious Woman Nominated to the Supreme Court

September 23, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, joined Fox News’s Hannity to discuss next steps for filling the Supreme Court vacancy.

On Democrat Attempts to Disqualify Religious Nominees

“So, you have Amy Coney Barrett and you have Barbara Lagoa, each are Catholics. What [Democrats] are going to do is try to disqualify them. Their standard would be, if you're an atheist or a secularist, then you can be a judge.”

On the American People’s View of the Nomination Process
“They have trusted President Trump. We have put 216 judges on the federal bench. Chairman Graham gets a lot of that credit. They know that they are seeing good, well-qualified men and women on the federal bench. They are wanting to see the same thing with the Justice.”

On the President’s Intention to Nominate a Woman
“[The American people] are thrilled that it's going to be a woman. Mind you, they know exactly what the left does and what the mainstream media does to conservative women… They are going to vilify. They are going to rip apart. They have already written press releases, and they are waiting to fill in the names so they can begin to denigrate the conservative woman that will be put forward as the next Supreme Court Justice.”
