Earlier today on the view, liberal co-host Joy Behar acknowledged it appears Democrats are not in a good position to block Republicans from filling the SCOTUS vacancy.
Whoopi Goldberg asked Joy “We were talking about the replacement for Justice Ginsburg. Joy, what’s your feeling?””
Behar responded “You know, I was thinking about the Supreme Court, because we’ve lost that battle. Now, I don’t want to talk about the Republicans anymore. We’ve lost the battle.”
She continued “That doesn’t mean we lost the Senate. These are the states up for grabs Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.”
After Meghan McCain pointed out Arizona is also very much in play for Democrats and they are favored to win that Senate race, Behar said “I also was thinking if you are a privileged person, like I am, I don’t have to worry about the Supreme Court that much because I’m white. Because I’m post menopausal so I can’t get pregnant, thank God. I happen to be straight.”
She continued “I have money because I’ve been working on ‘The View’ for so many years…. It’s for those people who are not privileged that we have to worry about. That is who you’re voting for. It’s like you wear the mask for someone else and you want the Supreme Court to be a steady force in America for someone else, not for you when you’re privileged.”
