Liberals have already begun their character assassination of Amy Coney Barrett even before President Trump has officially named her as his Supreme Court nominee.

The president is expected to formally announce Barrett’s nomination later Saturday, as he moves ahead with efforts to fill the high court seat vacated by the passing of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But his critics are so focused on hatred of the president, gearing up to smear any of his potential candidates, that the attacks on Barrett have already begun.

Liberals were slammed on social media after trolling the 48-year-old federal appeals court judge and mother of seven. Personal comments and smears of Barrett and her devout Catholic faith added to questions about how she could have enough hours in a day to be a “loving, present mom.”

More shocking attacks on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge focused on two of her children who were adopted from Haiti.

Barrett, the oldest of seven children herself, has seven children with husband Jesse, a former federal prosecutor. Their youngest biological child has Down Syndrome and two of the children that make up the family were adopted from Haiti.

But Democrats on social media targeted Barrett’s children in a series of tweets that brought down a wave of condemnation upon them.

A Twitter user by the name of Dana Houle sparked outrage for comments directed at the possible “illegal” adoption of the children.

“I would love to know which adoption agency Amy Coney Barrett & her husband used to adopt the two children they brought here from Haiti,” Houle, a self-described Capitol Hill staffer and adoptive parent who has “elected Democrats,” wrote in a now-inaccessible tweet.

“So, here’s a Q: does the press even investigate details of Barrett’s adoptions from Haiti? Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. And if press learned they were unethical & maybe illegal adoptions, would they report it? Or not bc it involves her children,” Houle wrote in another tweet.

“Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or Americans weren’t scrupulous intermediaries & the kids were taken when there was family in Haiti? I dunno. I think it does, but maybe it doesn’t, or shouldn’t,” Houle added.

“I hope the adoptions were fully legit & ethical. I hope if press investigates that’s whay [sic] find. But if the adoptions were sketchy, reporting it would really screw w the lives of her 2 adopted kids (& maybe the 5 bio kids too),” another since-removed tweet read.

Another Twitter user named John Lee Brougher also questioned the “circumstances” around the adoption and the “treatment” of the children. (** Language warning)


Houle appeared to protect or delete the account tweets but not before getting slammed from Twitter users including Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Missouri’s Josh Hawley.

“This is the Dem gameplan. Nothing but raw bigotry and hate. I promise you, this will not stand,” Hawley tweeted in response.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway also blasted Houle.

“This is disgusting, @DanaHoule,” Richard Grenell, the former acting director of National Intelligence and ambassador to Germany, tweeted.

Houle later reportedly responded to the backlash with a non-apology.

“I shouldn’t have tweeted this…Not because it is smearing someone as engaging in child sex trafficking, but because I didn’t realize all the rubes out there would take offense to it,” she tweeted, according to The Blaze.

Many more called out the personal attacks on Barrett and her family.
