Appearing on Fox News, Amy Coney Barrett’s sister Megan Edwards joined Martha MacCallum to defend her sister from criticism coming from Democrats.
Discussing her sister’s faith, Edwards said “Amy is a person of faith. She prays. Every day, she and her family go to church together. But I think it’s also important to realize that people all across America also are people of faith and also go to church. And to me, I think this is a non-issue.
“She’s been very clear that she will be able to do her job and will apply the Constitution how it is,” Edwards explained “and not impart her own opinions and her own beliefs.”
Edwards also defended Barrett’s home life.
“Her work life, her home life, everything is so that her children know that they are important,” Edwards said “She wakes up early in the morning to get her work done so that she can bake a cake for her children’s birthday … Our family is one that’s huge. It’s big. It’s loud, but it’s full of love.”
She concluded “I think for her to have the courage to put herself out there in front of the country, frankly, the world, and have her own personal beliefs examined and criticized, I admire her. I mean, there’s just no better person for the job.”
