Media react to Benjamin Hall sharing an update on his health
In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, network contributor Mollie Hemingway said Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings were a “respectful” matter in which senators asked her questions in an “appropriate” manner. and “appropriate”.
“Everything was respectful at this confirmation hearing,” said Hemingway, editor of The Federalist.
“It’s okay. A judge’s judicial philosophy should be analysed. Everyone has done it properly and appropriately and no one has made up lies about it, so that’s more than enough.
The Senate voted to confirm Jackson 53-47 and she will replace outgoing judge Stephen Breyer this summer. Nonetheless, Hemingway compared Jackson’s confirmation hearings to Brett Kavanaugh’s in 2018.
Hemingway said Democrats were “horrendous” to Trump’s nominee, accusing him “of being a serial rapist without any evidence.” (Three women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, which he denied.)
Despite Hemingway’s statements about Jackson’s treatment, CNN’s chief political analyst Gloria Borger begged to disagree, saying some Republicans showed him no respect.
“I think it was rude that Rand Paul was late, maybe he had a late flight, so we’ll give him that excuse,” Borger said. “Lindsey Graham was wearing the wrong tie so he had to vote from outside the chamber.”
