Moments after President Donald Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court this Saturday afternoon, the National Republican Senatorial Committee published a tweet promoting a Barrett-themed t-shirt.

The t-shirt contains a photo of Barrett’s face surrounded by the words “Notorious A.C.B.” It’s a remix, if you will, of the nickname often applied to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, aka the Notorious R.B.G, by her groupies.

Look at the shirt below:

Perhaps because of the timing of the tweet — Ginsburg passed just a week ago, and Barrett’s nomination is in fact designed to replace her on the high court — the NRSC’s tweet provoked an avalanche of outrage from the institutional left.

Journalists, left-wing activists, feminists, Democrat politicians, Hollywood elites, corporate players, authors, etc., all pounced with the fury of an angry bull.

Here’s just a small sampling (*Language warning):

There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of additional tweets like this, all of them seemingly coming from left-wing personalities.

However, the criticism didn’t appear to faze the NRSC, which if anything appeared to double down by reposting the original tweet again a couple of minutes later.


The criticism also didn’t seem to faze conservatives in general.

On one hand, some liked the t-shirt and were amused by the outrage:

On the other hand, some conservatives seemed far more disturbed by the character assassination of Barrett that’s being perpetrated by the very same sorts of people upset by the NRSC’s tee.

The attacks on the SCOTUS nominee have been ruthless and relentless, with every aspect of Barrett’s life — including her adoption of two Haitian children — being treated as cannon fodder to tarnish her image as an otherwise upstanding human being.

“Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or … when there was family in Haiti?” one Democrat activist and former Capitol Hill staffer tweeted.

“As an adoptee, I need to know more about the circumstances of how Amy Coney Barrett came to adopt her children, and the treatment of them since. Transracial adoption is fraught with trauma and potential for harm.” another left-wing activist wrote.


The worst attack came from left-wing hero Ibram X. Kendi, the notorious anti-white racist whose so-called “Center for Antiracist Research” received a $10 million donation from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey last month.

In widely panned tweets posted Saturday afternoon, he seemed to compare Barrett’s adoption of two Haitian children to “white colonizers” adopting “savage” black children and teaching them to be “civilized.”


But not everybody on the left has attacked Barrett. Noah Feldman, one of the left-wing “experts” who was called by Democrats to testify against President Donald Trump during his impeachment hearings last year, wrote a piece in her defense.

“Regardless of what you or I may think of the circumstances of this nomination, Barrett is highly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. I disagree with much of her judicial philosophy and expect to disagree with many, maybe even most of her future votes and opinions,” his piece for Bloomberg reads.

“Yet despite this disagreement, I know her to be a brilliant and conscientious lawyer who will analyze and decide cases in good faith, applying the jurisprudential principles to which she is committed. Those are the basic criteria for being a good justice. Barrett meets and exceeds them.”

It isn’t some “right-wing nut job” saying this — it’s one of the Democrats’ own witnesses.
