(PatriotHeadline.com)- On Monday, the Senate voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Republicans won the vote and Barrett officially became the newest Supreme Court justice, but the Democrats didn’t go down without a very childish fight.
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono, who has been vocal in her opposition to the Republican judge’s nomination, was caught on video shouting “hell no!” before storming out of the Senate building.
Footage shows Hirono saying, “I’d like to say hell no!” angrily and leaving the building, knowing that the Democrats were set to lose the vote.

Hirono engaged in similarly childish behavior during the hearings that preceded the vote. The Hawaii senator asked Judge Barret, who is the mother of seven children, if she had ever sexually harassed or assaulted anybody.
“Since you become a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any physical or verbal harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” Hirono asked, despite Barrett never having been accused of anything like it.
When Barrett responded “no,” Hirono then asked, “Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?”
Hirono appeared to be using the same narrative used during the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused by Democrats of being a gang rapist.
While Barrett has not been accused of the same things as Kavanaugh, which turned out to be meritless claims, the newest Supreme Court justice has been subject to a barrage of abuse relating to her Catholic faith. Barrett has been accused of being a member of a Catholic cult that inspired the novel “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and accused by several Democratic judges of being incapable of separating her faith from her judgments.
Senator Dianne Feinstein previously accused Barrett of having the dogma of Catholicism live “loudly” within her, which set the stage for a series of other comments leveled at her by far-left senators and media pundits.
