(PatriotWise.com)- During the confirmation hearings for Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Vermont Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders attacked the Trump nominee claiming, among other things, that her confirmation would “destroy the Affordable Care Act and kick millions of Americans off their health care.”
But last week, Barrett was among the seven Justices to rule against a coalition of 18 states in the latest SCOTUS case challenging Obamacare.
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, anchor Dana Bash asked Sanders if he was wrong in his previous claims about Barrett.
And despite being wrong, Sanders said he wasn’t wrong.
Saying Barrett has a long career ahead of her, Sanders said that he believed the Supreme Court is “loaded with very conservative people” who will rule in favor of the wealthy and the powerful rather than “the needs of working families.”
It is unclear why anyone would take Sanders’ prognostications seriously after his prediction of what Amy Coney Barrett would do to Obamacare proved to be so far off the mark.
Then again, Sanders, like most Democrats, lacks self-reflection. The objective isn’t to assess reality. Instead, the objective is to demagogue conservatives and further divide the nation into “us versus them.”
Both Barrett and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority opinion on the latest Obamacare case. The only Trump pick to join Justice Alito in dissent was Justice Neil Gorsuch.
In an interview on Real America’s Voice with CBN’s David Brody, former President Trump expressed disappointment at both Barrett and Kavanaugh for upholding Obamacare.
Saying he “fought very hard for them,” Trump expressed disappointment over a number of their recent rulings.
However, when asked by Brody if he second-guessed his decision in nominating Kavanaugh or Barrett, President Trump said “second-guessing does no good,” but he remains disappointed.

During Senator Sanders’ appearance on “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash also asked him if he agreed with radical Left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s opinion that Justice Stephen Breyer resign so that President Biden could appoint his replacement. Sanders hedged on the question saying the decision to retire should be left to Justice Breyer.
