See what the stars had to say on social media during Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings, which took place from Oct. 12-15, 2020…"Watching Judge Barrett fillet [Senator Kamala] Harris is like watching a shark devour its prey. One gulp and gone. … For the life of me I cannot comprehend Judge Barrett's ability to maintain an absolute poker face while enduring the clown shows put on by Whitehouse and Hirono." –James Woods
"It's not a sexual 'preference,' Judge Barrett. A preference is something you choose. I'll give you an example: 'I have a preference for non-radical, non-fundamentalist justices on the Supreme Court.' Are we clear? … The GOP is pushing through this extremist #SCOTUS nom in order to gut the Affordable Care Act — taking healthcare from millions during a pandemic. We must elect candidates, at every level, committed to keeping our families safe. We must #VoteRuthlessly." –George Takei
"Nine states have trigger laws that would automatically ban abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned. A woman's access to reproductive healthcare and control over her own body is in dire jeopardy if Barrett is confirmed. #BlockBarrett #SaveRoe #SCOTUSHearings" –Debra Messing
"Amy Coney Barrett is an unqualified, inexperienced religious extremist." –Billy Eichner. He later added, "Replacing RBG with Amy Coney Barrett is like replacing Meryl Streep with Candace Cameron."
"Vote and confirm ACB!" –Antonio Sabato Jr.
"Republicans at the confirmation hearing: 'Water is not wet, simply because it is made of wetness at its core.' … Our right to choose is on the line here. Confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett would eliminate protections for women and families. … It's 2020. This does not belong in the Supreme Court. 'Among its teachings are that men are divinely ordained as the 'head' of both the family and faith, and it is the duty of wives to submit to them.' – of Amy Coney Barrett's community, People of Praise" –Padma Lakshmi
"Justice Amy Barrett seems so nice & moderate. Who would believe that she sat at the feet of the fire-breathing #Scalia? Has she been groomed as a sleeper cell? To move the church much closer to the state, & to interpret the Constitution exactly as written 200 years ago?" –Bette Midler
"Cory Booker has a very serious listening problem. Vote him out." –Kristy Swanson, responding to @JoeConchaTV's tweet reading, "Booker has now interrupted Barrett 9 times in less than 20 minutes."
"This is what this President and his administration have prioritized over the well being of you and your loved ones. Unconscionable. #VoteThemOut" —Mandy Moore, in response to Senator Kamala Harris's tweet during the hearings that read, "To everyone who is barely hanging onto their homes, who has lost a loved one to COVID-19, who has no way to pay the bills: know that instead of voting to provide relief you desperately need, Senate Republicans today are choosing to hold a hearing to confirm a judge."
"This is terrifying" –Josh Gad, in response to @Ranttmedia's tweet about the hearings that read, "Feinstein: Does the Constitution give the President the authority to unilaterally delay a general election. Barrett refuses to answer and says she would need to hear arguments, etc. Says she doesn't want to be a 'legal pundit.' The right answer is 'no.'"
"Merrick Garland's SCOTUS seat was stolen. The GOP said… 'No SCOTUS appointments during an election. We should let the people decide.' They vowed not to do that during the final year of Trump's 1st term. Dems have been clear… all bets are off now… everything is on the table." –Billy Baldwin
"Hey ACB what advice do u have for little girls … don't get pregnant #25thAmendmentNow #TrumpIsALaughingStock #roevwade #WomensRights" –Rosie O'Donnell
"Amy Coney Barrett uses term 'originalist' to impose her radical right wing religious views as if the Founding Fathers (49% of delegates to constitutional convention owned slaves) didn't know how dangerous religious zealots could be. Something about separation church and state…" –Bradley Whitford
"The majority of suburban women want their daughters to have the right to chose and to have access to a safe abortion if they need one." –Patricia Arquette
"Yep. Her response 'I can assure you Senator and everyone on this committee that I have no agenda' must have made the Kyle Rittenhouse lovin crowd very happy." –Kathy Griffin, in response to a tweet from @harrylitman that read, "best line of questioning so far, by Durbin. really close attack on her dissent in Cantor, which just can't be explained away as following SCt or circuit precedent"
"This is how you know they completely control her. This is terrifying." –Judd Apatow, responding to a tweet from @thereidout about Judge Amy Coney Barrett citing @ElieNYC's tweet noting "she couldn't give a simple answer" when Senator Cory Booker asked her about her support for a peaceful transfer of power after the presidential election
"Why don't you just take the 5th? It's clear you will gut #womensreproductiverights #abortionrights #healthcare #LGBTQ rights #AmyConeyBarrett is a dangerous sanctimonious ill equipped substandard cold bitter unqualified maudlin embarrassment to our democracy #BlockBarrett now!" –Sandra Bernhard
"Watching #AmyConeyBarrett hearings. Whether you support her nomination or not, hard not to notice this is a dramatically different hearing process from Kavanaugh's. Amazing how civil, though rigorous, the process can be when you don't nominate a man accused of sexual assault." –Ana Navarro-Cárdenas
