McConnell: Amy Coney Barrett confirmation was ‘birthday present’ for Clinton

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was a “wonderful birthday present” for Hillary Clinton.
The wry remark about the former presidential candidate, who turned 73 on Monday, came during a campaign stop in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
“It was a wonderful birthday present for Hillary Clinton to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night on her birthday,” McConnell (R-Ky.) told his supporters on Wednesday. “Oh, I’m sure she was so grateful, so grateful.”
Clinton opposed Barrett’s nomination to the highest court of the land and vented on Twitter Monday.
“It is an insult to the American people that the GOP is ramming through a Supreme Court justice with just eight days until the end of an election in which nearly 60 million people have already voted,” she wrote.
