Sen. Whitehouse Urges Republicans to ‘Stand Up’ to the Supposed ‘Big Donors’ Pushing Barrett’s Confirmation

Sen. Whitehouse Urges Republicans to ‘Stand Up’ to the Supposed ‘Big Donors’ Pushing Barrett’s Confirmation

Drama king.

Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse managed to insert his war on “dark money” into his statement at Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing.

Whitehouse claimed his constituents view Barrett’s confirmation as a “judicial torpedo.”

From NBC News:

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said in his opening statement that he hopes Republicans consider that health care coverage is at stake in this confirmation process, as millions of people are relying on the Affordable Care Act during the coronavirus pandemic.

Whitehouse said that Rhode Islanders are “calling, writing, emailing, tweeting me by the thousands asking me to say ‘no’ to this nominee mostly because they see as a judicial torpedo aimed at their essential protections.”

“My constituents want you, my colleagues, members of the Republican Party, to stand up for once to Mitch McConnell and to the big donors who are driving this process, and for the sake of regular people, say ‘stop,'” he said.

    I’m sorry, but Rhode Island.
    The locality so backward that its two “Republican” governors (father and son) were leading advocates of a total ban on handguns and their ammunition.
    The largish county so unremarkable that the Patriarcas had to kiss Whitey Bulger’s ring, and Whitey couldn’t even pronounce sfogliatelle.
    If it weren’t for Legal Insurrection Foundation, Rhode Island would have no redeeming qualities at all.

Every day brings another example of Democrats’ desperation. Whatever could it mean?

Still waiting on Sen. Whitehouse to decry the money being wasted on the Jaime Harrison campaign in SC.
Someone is spending big money….Harrison ads at every commercial break on TV, every YouTube video preceded by a Harrison ad, mailers every day, billboards….

Sure, a corrupt senator from corrupt Rhode Island crusading against “dark money” corruption. Right. When does he get to the part about farting?

I guess today isn’t the day Whitehouse gets to use the shared brain the Rhode Island delegation to DC owns.

Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) is an ongoing embarrassment to the the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. And given the sad state of affairs here, that’s saying a lot.

My relatives ask why I didn’t choose to return to RI when I retired from the Army. Shelley Whitehouse is reason #17.

Stick to deciphering High School Yearbooks, Whitehouse.

“Big donors” is liarspeak for unanimous grassroots support.

    Actually it’s liarspeak for projection. All the big money donors are against ACB.

    Karl Marx: “Accuse Your Enemy of What You Are Doing, As You Are Doing it to Create Confusion.”

Despite being from the smallest state, Whitehouse still remains a national embarrassment. Wake up RI and vote this idiot out.

I can’t wait until Sen. Whitehouse subpoenas Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s personal high school yearbook and investigates it for fart jokes. It seems to be his M.O. when vetting SCOTUS judges nominated by Republican presidents.

A clear example of the Democrat’s complete contempt for the Constitution.

He one creepy-ass cracka.
