Chelsea Clinton Calls On Americans to Oppose Amy Coney Barrett Nomination
Former First Daughter attacks Supreme Court nominee in op-ed
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, called on Americans to "dissent" against President Donald Trump's Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett in an op-ed shared by her mother.
"I don’t remember where I was when my dad nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, but I do remember how I felt: very excited and a little surprised," Clinton wrote in Cosmopolitan.
"If President Trump succeeds in placing Amy Coney Barrett as Justice Ginsburg’s successor, I expect that he will get even more of what he wants—with disastrous consequences for the country," she added.
Chelsea Clinton praised the late Ginsburg's stance of topics like birth control while on the Supreme Court.
"[W]hen Justice Ginsburg lost, she went down swinging, arguing with fierce intellect about why the majority was wrong so that one day, some judge, far in the future, might dust off her opinion and make things right," Chelsea Clinton wrote.
"Ruth Bader Ginsburg was 'The Great Dissenter.' Now it is our turn to dissent against Trump’s choice for Ginsburg’s replacement and against the rush to confirm her before Election Day."
"There are two things we can do to stop this: speak up and vote," Chelsea Clinton added.

Trump's nominee has been the subject of smears and attacks from liberal women's groups and Planned Parenthood, claiming she is a threat to women's reproductive rights.
Many Democrats argue that the winner of the 2020 presidential election should select Ginsburg's replacement.
Meanwhile, March For Our Lives, a gun control group, protested with a mural declaring "We Call BS" outside his Washington, D.C., home earlier this month.
Earlier this week, “anti-racist” author, Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi, called Barrett a “white colonizer” for adopting two black children from Haiti.
Later, feminist journalist Christine Grimaldi accused Barrett of “weaponizing her white womanhood.”
While Barrett was accepting her nomination to the Supreme Court, Grimaldi sent out a series of angry tweets claiming she was using her black children as props to gain political points.

“This whole press conference is a display of Amy Coney Barrett weaponizing her white womanhood to grab whatever power managed to slip through the cracks in the Trump administration’s unrelenting misogyny,” tweeted Grimaldi.
What would the hateful Left have Amy Coney Barrett do? Hide her black children? Only appear in public with her white, non-disabled children? These people are sick. https://t.co/7EzH4RWtcp— Rita Panahi (@RitaPanahi) September 27, 2020
“Trump and Barrett using her black children and child with down syndrome to score political points isn’t surprising, but it’s no less appalling,” she continued.
