Moments ago, Democrat Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse blasted the hearing of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, calling it “a microcosm of Trump’s dangerous ineptitude in dealing with the Covid pandemic.”

“This hearing itself is a microcosm of Trump’s dangerous ineptitude in dealing with the Covid pandemic.” Whitehouse said

“Trump can’t even keep the White House safe … The whole thing, just like Trump, is an irresponsible botch.”

Whitehouse also says “My constituents want you, my colleagues, members of the Republican Party, to stand up for once to Mitch McConnell and to the big donors who are driving this process, and for the sake of regular people say, ‘Stop'””
