Scarborough: Trump’s Positive Covid Test Should Move Barrett’s Hearings Back ‘at Least Two Weeks, at Least Three Weeks’
Listen to this article
MSNBC’S Joe Scarborough said that President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 positive test pushes back Amy Coney Barrett’s hearings two to three weeks.
SCARBOROUGH: “Also, Mika, we’re talking about the campaign, but also, again, it’s very important for everyone that has been exposed, especially when you’re talking about the Supreme Court nominee, the President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, has she been exposed, has Mitch McConnell been exposed? It sounds like they likely have. And if that’s the case, that’s something that obviously pushes any hearings —”
BRZEZINSKI: “Oh my gosh. That’s right.”
SCARBOROUGH: ” — back at least two weeks, at least three weeks. The President obviously telling us from the debate stage on Tuesday night he wants to expedite her nomination as quickly as possible because he wants her vote on any challenge that he has to the outcome of election results. Again, with — if you do the contact tracing, it seems that that is unlikely to happen over the next few weeks, at least until everybody is cleared.”

It’s not just Scarborough, you can see the narrative developing overnight.
Here we go. They’re going to try and delay Judge Barrett’s SCOTUS hearing in response to President Trump’s diagnosis. https://t.co/2zsB7Z5mho

Just noted on MSNBC by @JonLemire: Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows, who is around Trump often, has spent time in the last 24 hours or so with Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Might Meadows and Barrett have to quarantine? If so, what would that mean for the confirmation hearings?

Serious question: Does this mean that Amy Coney Barrett and all the senators with whom she met earlier this week need to quarantine for 14 days?
