Barrett says she won’t give issues ‘thumbs up or thumbs down’ as Dems grill nominee on ObamaCare, Trump | Fox News

Watched for a few minutes this afternoon and watched as ACB and watched as she basically told a Democratic Senator in the nicest, most respectful, and dignified way that his question was simply stupid and she was not going to fall into the trap of answering it.

“I have a view whether I love or hate it,” Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett said on Tuesday when asked about Roe v. Wade by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, without revealing that view. “One reason why it may be comforting to you to have an answer is also why I can’t pre-commit to approaching a case in any particular way.” That answer was emblematic of Barrett’s day as she repeatedly emphasized that she would not commit to pre-judging any case a certain way while Democrats pressed her to do just that.  “I do want to be forthright and answer every question so far as I can,” Barrett said, also to Feinstein, D-Calif., citing Justice Elena Kagan’s confirmation hearing. “She said that she was not going to grade precedent or give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.”
