Barrett acknowledges scrutiny she’s under, says “I’ve tried to be on a media blackout for the sake of my mental health”

While answering questions from Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, in a lighter moment, Judge Amy Coney Barrett acknowledged the scrutiny she is under.

“I’ve tried to be on a media blackout for the sake of my mental health,” Barrett joked.

Barrett also says she’s aware of “caricatures” about her beliefs in the media, and that her family life would be “combed over for any negative detail.”
