Anti-Christian BIGOTS: ABC fears ‘devout Catholic’ will replace Ginsburg

 Image: Anti-Christian BIGOTS: ABC fears ‘devout Catholic’ will replace Ginsburg

 Fresh from lobbying liberal Republicans in the Senate to block any Supreme Court nominee President Trump put forward, Sunday’s Good Morning America featured ABC flaunting their anti-Christian bigotry with White House correspondent Rachel Scott fearing the President would fill Justice Ginsburg’s vacant seat with a “devout Catholic” in “conservative” Judge Amy Coney Barrett.


Putting aside the coronavirus and natural disasters, GMA co-anchor Whit Johnson began the program by showing off liberal commemorations for the late Justice:

New York governor Andrew Cuomo ordered state landmarks to be lit in blue in honor of her. Time magazine releasing a special commemorative cover featuring the late justice, and overnight, this vigil where Senator Elizabeth Warren led the crowd in a chant of “I will fight” to support Ginsburg’s stances on dreamers and affordable care.

 

“Outside the Supreme Court, a growing memorial as so many grapple with the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” Scott added. “The President, though, is pressing forward announcing he will nominate a woman in the coming days to fill her seat.”


Continuing with the pearl-clutching about the President “racing forward” with a nominee, cautioned viewers that “Sources tell us, three female judges are on his shortlist with conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett emerging as an early front-runner.”


Scott also warned that Barrett was a “devout Catholic” who “was pressed by Democrats about her stance on Roe v. Wade during her confirmation hearing to serve on the federal bench.” She played this soundbite of Senator Dianne Feinstein berating Barrett for her faith:


SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CA): The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.

JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT: It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge’s personal convictions whether they derive from faith or anywhere else on the law.

“A day of mourning quickly turned political,” she went on to complain about the President’s comments at a campaign rally in North Carolina. “Less than 24 hours after Ginsburg’s death. Spotlighting the divide in America.”

While Scott was whining about Trump making things political, it was ABC who spent the night of Ginsburg’s death trying to lobby against filling her seat. She even boasted about how one liberal Republican was doing what they wanted and was backed by Democrats (Click “expand”):

SCOTT: Not every Republican is on board with that speedy timeline. One of them, Senator Susan Collins. In a statement, she said, “I do not believe that the Senate should vote on the nominee prior to the election.” Democrats agree.

JOE BIDEN: Let me be clear, that the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider.

SCOTT: Republicans can only afford to lose three votes, and a small group of moderate and vulnerable senators could split from their party to stop it.

 

Protesters lining the streets outside of McConnell’s home demanding the Senate vote be delayed,” she went on to tout.

These are the same liberal hacks who demanded that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) hold hearings and confirm President Obama’s election-year Supreme Court nomination.


This disgusting anti-Christian bigotry was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Macy’sState Farm, and a special shout out to Ancestry. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they funding.

ABC’s Good Morning America

WHIT JOHNSON: But we begin here with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The political battle now over replacing her on the Supreme Court, and what it means for the presidential campaign. New York governor Andrew Cuomo ordered state landmarks to be lit in blue in honor of her. Time magazine releasing a special commemorative cover featuring the late justice, and overnight, this vigil where Senator Elizabeth Warren led the crowd in a chant of “I will fight” to support Ginsburg’s stances on dreamers and affordable care.

ABC’s Rachel Scott is joining us now from outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. with the very latest. Rachel, good morning.

RACHEL SCOTT: Whit, good morning. There is a sense of grief and anticipation playing out here in Washington. Outside the Supreme Court, a growing memorial as so many grapple with the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The President, though, is pressing forward announcing he will nominate a woman in the coming days to fill her seat.

Overnight, hundreds flooding the Supreme Court to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

UNIDENTIFIED KID: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of my heroes.

SCOTT: A moment of silence in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol where a fierce political battle over her replacement is heating up. Less than 45 days out from Election Day, President Trump racing forward urging Republicans to fill the seat “without delay.”

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I think the process could go very, very fast.

SCOTT: We’ve learned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already spoken to the President about the next steps, promising his nominee will receive a vote on the Senate floor. And the President is now narrowing down his choices telling his supporters in North Carolina he will nominate a woman.

TRUMP: I will be putting forth the nominee next week. It will be a woman.

SCOTT: Sources tell us three female judges are on his short list with conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett emerging as an early front-runner. In 2017, the devout Catholic was pressed by Democrats about her stance on Roe v. Wade during her confirmation hearing to serve on the federal bench.

SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CA): The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.

JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT: It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge’s personal convictions whether they derive from faith or anywhere else on the law.

SCOTT: Not every Republican is on board with that speedy timeline. One of them, Senator Susan Collins. In a statement, she said, “I do not believe that the Senate should vote on the nominee prior to the election.” Democrats agree.

JOE BIDEN: Let me be clear, that the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider.

SCOTT: Republicans can only afford to lose three votes, and a small group of moderate and vulnerable senators could split from their party to stop it.

TRUMP: Now we have some senators that, you know, forget it. Think of it. I won’t say it. I won’t say it, Susan. I won’t say it, Susan.

SCOTT: A day of mourning quickly turned political. Less than 24 hours after Ginsburg’s death. Spotlighting the divide in America.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: I think us being here sends a message not just to honor her, but to really send a message to the GOP saying, you know, we are here as a people to stand with her.

SCOTT: Protesters lining the streets outside of McConnell’s home demanding the Senate vote be delayed. The vacancy injecting a new sense of urgency into an already chaotic and divisive election year.

[Cuts back to live]

And Republicans will have to figure out if they have enough votes in the Senate to confirm that nominee by Election Day. But they would have to move at a rapid pace. On average, it takes about 70 days for a nomination to get through the Senate, and we are less than 45 days out from Election Day. Eva?

EVA PILGRIM: Rachel Scott for us there at the Supreme Court.
