President Trump has officially announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nomination to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Left took absolutely no time in hurling personal attacks against both Barrett and her children, including her adopted Haitian children.
And within minutes of the nomination the attacks came.
Dana Houle, a self-described political consultant to Democrats, suggested that perhaps Barrett and her husband illegally adopted two of their children from Haiti.
Without any provocation, Houle began a long and disturbing Twitter thread: “I would love to know which adoption agency Amy Coney Barrett & her husband used to adopt the two children they brought here from Haiti.”
In a since deleted tweet, he asked if the press would investigate Barrett’s adoptions. He said: “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell.”
This attack was mirrored by John Lee Brougher, the managing director of NextGen America, a progressive political action committee, when he said (in a now deleted or hidden tweet) “[t]ransracial adoption is fraught with trauma and potential for harm, and everything I see here is deeply concerning.”
Later, Al Sharpton took a jab at Barrett’s adopted children to make a point about what he considered a lack of diversity in the nomination event audience.
Sharpton said “I was glad her two kids did come out, I couldn’t find too many other people of color in that audience.”
At least a few social media users called them out on their disgusting tactics.
