Hillary Clinton trolled by top Republican who hopes she's grateful Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed on her birthday
30th October 2020

SENATE Majority Leader Mitch McConnell trolled Hillary Clinton this week, saying he hopes she’s grateful that Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed on her birthday. 

Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Monday – just as Clinton turned 73 years old. 

McConnell told supporters on Wednesday of the occasion: “It was a wonderful birthday present for Hillary Clinton to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night on her birthday.”

“Oh, I’m sure she was so grateful, so grateful,” the Republican congressional leader sarcastically said while making a campaign stop in Kentucky.

The former presidential candidate opposed Barrett’s nomination to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.

On her birthday, Clinton tweeted that her nomination and confirmation were an “insult” to voters. 

“It is an insult to the American people that the GOP is ramming through a Supreme Court justice with just eight days until the end of an election in which nearly 60 million people have already voted.”

Others also mocked the former secretary of state online this week, trolling her with “happy birthday” – knowing she was not in favor of Barrett joining the top court.

"Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton. Hope you're as happy as we are with the GLORIOUS #ACB vote tonight," AmericaFirst host Sebastian Gorka wrote.

Another user, Dinesh D-Souza, said: "It was very nice of @realDonaldTrump to give her Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court as a birthday present!"

A member of the Team Trump advisory board, Jessie Jane Duff, said that there is "no greater gift to America" than Barrett's confirmation.

"On Hillary Clinton's birthday, we will celebrate an amazing day as President Trump's third Supreme Court Justice is confirmed," she wrote.

Clinton took the opportunity on her birthday to ask Americans to vote for the Democrats in the upcoming election.

The former presidential hopeful posted a photograph of herself from her school days with the caption: "It's my birthday.”

"Here's my one wish: that you reach out to one person in your life who may not vote this year and encourage them to turn out for Biden-Harris. All of us have more power than we know."

Barrett’s confirmation on Monday was hardly in doubt, with Republicans mostly united in support behind President Donald Trump’s pick.

Barrett’s ascent opens up a potential new era of rulings on abortion, gay marriage, and the Affordable Care Act; a case against the Obama-era health law scheduled to be heard November 10.

More than 80million people have already voted in the US election.

With four days left until Election Day, time is running out for Trump and Joe Biden to change the shape of the race.

Biden is leading most national polls and has a narrow advantage in the critical battlegrounds that could decide the race.
