Sheldon Whitehouse Goes Full-On Looney Tunes While 'Questioning' ACB

Senators from the Judiciary Committee were questioning SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday for the second day in a row.

But some of the Democrats, instead of really questioning Barrett, used their time to grandstand and politic.

Perhaps the worst example of this was Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) whose conspiracy-ridden rant was so bizarre it was unintentionally hilarious.

Here’s a little bit of the crazy. He even held up a sign with “The Scheme” on it.

My gosh, I think he may have figured out that conservative groups support the idea of having conservative justices. Oh my! The scandal!

But the seriousness of his delusional presentation, they’re even in the “same hallway,” was funny.

So he went on like that for 30 minutes, not asking Barrett even one question. She looked at him the whole time and you could see she was probably thinking he was out of his mind, but wouldn’t say it.

Whitehouse got mocked mercilessly on Twitter by conservatives, while those on the left praised his ‘receipts.’

It even prompted dry wit from the folks over at Court TV who are generally quite neutral.
