A feminist writer for the New York Times Magazine trashed Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, saying the working mom is like reality star Kim Kardashian and her sisters, who let their nannies raise their kids for them.
“I guess one of the things I don’t understand about Amy Comey Barrett is how a potential Supreme Court justice can also be a loving, present mom to seven kids?” Vanessa Grigoriadis tweeted while misspelling the judge’s name. “Is this like the Kardashians stuffing nannies in the closet and pretending they’ve drawn their own baths for their kids?”
And if there aren't enough hours in the day for her to work and mother those kids, when she portrays herself as a home-centered Catholic who puts family over career, isn't she telling a lie?

In one fell swoop, the self-proclaimed feminist slammed the Kardashian sisters and Judge Barrett as uncaring moms because they work outside the home.
Keep in mind that feminists have long championed working moms and looked down on housewives who stay home to care for their children.
Now — because President Trump nominated a mom of seven who’s a federal judge — they’re deriding working moms as bad parents.
Vanessa Grigoriadis’ sexist tweet ignited a Twitter uproar.
Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway remarked: “The air is already thick with sexism. Self-labeled “pro-woman feminists” question the integrity and ability of a highly-educated working mom of 7 school-aged children. Big minds talk about the Constitution. Small minds talk about other people.”

Attorney Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., is a former assistant district attorney for San Francisco.
Guilfoyle blasted leftist women smearing Judge Barrett, saying they have nothing substantive to attack her with, so they’re resorting to petty personal attacks.
Guilfoyle tweeted: “Leftists quickly abandon feminism when faced with a strong, ACCOMPLISHED women of faith. Sad! Law school teaches when the facts/law are on your side, argue the facts/law. If you don’t, just make noise and create a distraction. The left is obviously going to go with the latter.”

“So much for working moms as heroes. Her body and her choice unless the libs object.”
One Twitter user said Grigoriadis’ smear of Judge Barrett backfired bigly.
“I know this was meant as an attack, but really what you’re identifying is that ACB is basically superwoman. It is legitimately impressive how ACB has managed to be both an incredible mother to 7 kids and one of the most successful legal professionals in the country, but she has.”

NYC Councilman Joe Borelli, a Republican, noted: “I would be embarrassed if I said something so dumb. People would rightfully call me sexist for suggesting women can’t be mothers and have a career. But alas.”

Any Coney Barrett will be an inspiration to a whole generation of women.
Fiercely devoted to her marriage.
To her children.
An adoptive mother.
A mother of a child with special needs.
A friend to many.
A brilliant academic.
An excellent jurist.
Our next Supreme Court Justice.

To counter the laughable rumors that she’s part of a Christian cult that forces women to be submissive to men, Barrett said her husband is the better cook in their household.
She added that every morning, her husband asks HER how he can help make her life easier:
“For 21 years, Jesse has asked me, every single morning, what he can do for me that day. And though I almost always say “nothing,” he still finds ways to take things off my plate.”
So much for the “submissive Christian wife” narrative.
