This man shouldn’t be talking about politics.
Disgraced former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) attacked Judge Amy Coney Barrett and called her a hypocrite for siding with Republicans and not taking Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination on an election year.
According to Breitbart, Franken stated, “You know what, her hypocrisy. She did an interview right after Scalia died, with CBS, and in that interview, she said, well, you know, this is very different from Kennedy being seated because she was taking place of Powell, who left in June, this is very different. She’s a hypocrite too. And that needs to be raised in her questioning.”
Franken went on to say, “That’s one of the things she said, but she went to great lengths to explain why it was proper to seat Justice Kennedy in ’88, but not to take up Merrick Garland and she went out of her way to say, ‘Oh, they’re already casting primary votes.’ That’s what she said. They’re already doing votes in New Hampshire. She did say that. And why would she say that if it doesn’t—if it didn’t matter? And this is completely hypocritical, go back and look at that interview.”
