The Senate Judiciary Committee began the first of four days of confirmation hearings on Monday for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

With Republican control of the Senate, Barrett is widely expected to be confirmed to fill the seat left vacant with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month.

As expected, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee used their allotted 10 minutes of time on opening day to grandstand and preach politics and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who was rocking a RBG pin, was no different, exploiting the occasion to campaign against President Donald Trump’s reelection while talking about the COVID-19 pandemic and white supremacy, among other things.

Unfortunately for the failed 2020 presidential candidate, she would be followed by Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who offered Democrats an overdue civics lesson.

“I want to say, Senator Klobuchar said a number of things about COVID that I agree with…. I didn’t agree with parts of her criticism of the mismanagement of COVID by Washington, D.C.,” Sasses said in his opening.

Ever so subtly, the GOP senator then lowered the boom, “But I do not know what any of that has to do with what we’re here to do today.”

He panned some of the remarks from Democrats on the committee, saying it would be really confusing to eighth graders and that much of the talk was more appropriate for the Senate Finance Committee.

“I think it would be very useful for us to pause and remind ourselves and due some of our civic duty to eighth graders to help them realize what a president runs for, what a senator runs for and on the other hand, why Judge Barrett is sitting before us today and what the job is [she] is being evaluated for,” Sasse said.

Needless to say, the lawmaker triggered the left.

Sasse was just as effective in countering the efforts on the left to go after Barrett for her Catholic faith.

“Religious liberty is the basic ideal that how you worship is none of the government’s business,” he explained. “Government can wage wars, government can write parking tickets but government cannot save souls.”

Social media lit up as a result of the civics lesson Sasse delivered to his Democratic colleagues.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
