Nothing feels quite like an escape.

Just ask Leo Terrell. The civil rights attorney made a break from the Democratic Party, and he’s glad to be gone.

During a Fox News discussion Saturday on Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court and her opposition by Catholic Democrats, he extolled his exit.

Host Jeanine Pirro played a clip before the conversation: Bill Maher predicting, “We’ll all be saying this name a lot, I’m sure, ’cause she’s a f—in’ nut. … Amy [Coney] Barrett — Catholic, really Catholic. I mean really, really Catholic. Like speaking in tongues.”

Leo lamented the Left’s loathing:

“They’re haters. … [The Democrats] hate. When they don’t have an argument, they’ll just make up an argument.”

As noted by The Daily Caller, even the Donkey Party’s nominee for VP’s gone against Amy and her observance:

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen.Kamala Harris has suggested that Catholics may be unfit to serve in public office, and Democratic lawmakers have attacked Barrett’s faith.


RedState’s Jeff Charles recently pointed out some nay-sayers have taken a cinematic approach:

(A) far-Left progressive magazine posted a link to a story in which it repeated the now-debunked claim that Barrett’s religious group was the inspiration for [dystopian television show The Handmaid’s Tale]. “Amy Coney Barrett is a member of People of Praise, a charismatic covenant community in South Bend, Indiana known for the submissive role played by women, some of whom were called ‘handmaids’ — at least until The Handmaid’s Tale aired in 2017,” they lied.

On Fox, formerly-lifelong Democrat Leo — who’s taken a tremendous turn in endorsing Trump –asserted the President’s enemies are nesting in nonsense:

“They’re haters. …  This is the part that I don’t understand. It is confusing — JFK: Catholic. Joe Biden: Catholic. Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi: Catholic.”

“Why is this Catholic wrong?” he asked.

Terrell waxed on his wakening:

“As a lawyer, it makes no sense at all, and I couldn’t take it any longer.”

Leo’s long gone:

“I had to get away from the asylum. And guess what? I escaped, and I’m not going back.”

Leo wasn’t the only guest opining the anti-religious route of some ACB adversaries.


Dan Bongino marveled over a move against the largest religion in the world:

“That’s a real way to convince voters, guys. You’ve really got this down. … ‘Hey, I’ve got a great idea. You know those Catholics? There’s just a few of them. You, know, like maybe a hundred million.'”
