    Only one Senator broke party lines.

    Barrett was confirmed by a vote of 52-48 on Monday evening, after Democrats exhausted the procedural maneuvers undertaken to delay her confirmation. Only one Republican, Senator Susan Collins, voted against confirming Barrett to the Supreme Court. All the Democrats voted against her, including red state Senators Doug Jones of Alabama, who is up for reelection this year, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.

    Put people's safety at risk by breaking social distancing measures to go up and say "hell no" in the face of the person tallying the vote.

    So what are your thoughts on the super spreader event held, Trump continuing not to mask or distance, Pence being exposed and not quaratining, etc?

    FWIW, Pence did not preside over the confirmation vote and did not attend the event last night. But he did campaign in Minnesota earlier in the day.

    Right. He should be quarantining.

    Confirmed with time to spare. I thought Trump should have selected ACB the last time, but she was obviously the ideal candidate for a quick confirmation.

    It's not about what I think. Just pointing out that actions don't back up the talk regarding being safe.

    But not required.

    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...hed%20surfaces.

    To ensure continuity of operations of essential functions, CDC advises that critical infrastructure workers may be permitted to continue work following potential exposure to COVID-19, provided they remain asymptomatic and additional precautions are implemented to protect them and the community.
    But seriously, wtf is that?

    That's a mixed message right there.

    Campaigning isn't critical infrastructure work.

    He could be doing his job from home, like almost anyone else with an office job.

    I have no idea what that means, lol. Is that "I can test positive, but so long as I'm not coughing, have no fever, and I wear a mask, I can just go on" or is this "please encase yourself in a popemobile to protect everyone around you"?

    I agree that it's a poor optic.

    As far as what we know, it wasn't a safety risk, though. I believe social distancing measures say that when social distancing can't be maintained, to wear a mask. All parties in that video are wearing masks. She wasn't "in the face" of the person tallying the vote, she was across what looks like about a 4-foot table. And to qualify as an exposure the benchmark seems to be 10-minutes not socially distanced. This was less than 5 seconds.

    Ultimately, it was a poor decision for political purposes.

    This is whataboutism. Put simply, two wrongs don't make it right.

    Nah, it's not whataboutism.

    It's asking for the context of the label. If her actions show that she's "unhinged", then what are we labeling his much more egregious violations of CDC guidelines? Maniacal?

    And as we go down the path...Why is anyone voting for a maniacal candidate?
