Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed 52-48 by the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death earlier this year. Barrett is the 3rd Supreme Court Justice to be nominated and confirmed since President Trump took office in 2017. Despite the fact that it was a foregone conclusion that Barrett would be confirmed, Democratic Senators spent the weekend doing whatever they could to delay the final vote.
In response, Senate Republicans spent the weekend exposing the Democrats' hypocrisy and goal of remaking the judiciary.

Democrats keep demanding the President repeat that the election will be valid even if he dislikes the outcome. But they're flunking that test badly with Judge Barrett's nomination. pic.twitter.com/Lvf0DtlA6Y
Senate Republicans are working over the weekend to ensure that Democrat shenanigans don’t slow down Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation. It’s a shame to see how Democrats have politicized the judicial confirmation process over the last 30-plus years. pic.twitter.com/2G6l4hNhhs— Senator John Thune (@SenJohnThune) October 24, 2020
This has nothing to do with Judge Barrett and everything to do with Democrats’ ultimate goal of packing the courts with more liberal judges. https://t.co/jt5yLwnYAN— Senator John Cornyn (@JohnCornyn) October 24, 2020
Apparently anything the Democrats disagree with is racist, homophobic, and discriminatory.— Sen. Marsha Blackburn (@MarshaBlackburn) October 26, 2020
Ed, be original for once.
