(Slay News) – Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett shut down a leftist heckler while giving a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Monday.
Her witty comeback to the yelling activist prompted laughs and loud applause from the audience.
During an event at the Reagan Library, a protester interrupted by Barrett calling a Supreme Court justice “an enslaver of women.”
Barrett is a staunch conservative woman who lives her faith, two things the Left finds intolerable.
“You are a Christian fascist that has an agenda to enslave women!” the far-left protester shouted.
Before the woman was removed by security, Justice Barrett fired back at the heckler: “As a mother of seven, I am used to distractions — and sometimes even outbursts.”
The crowd laughed and applauded.

Amy Coney Barrett also said during her appearance:
“It’s also perfectly fair game to say that the court got it wrong.
“But I think if you’re going to make the latter claim that the court got it wrong, you have to engage with the court’s reasoning first.”
She urged the American public to “read the opinion” before going on social media to trash the court and the judges.
“Does the decision read like something that was purely results-driven and designed to impose the policy preferences of the majority?
“Or does this read like it actually is an honest effort and persuasive effort, even if one you ultimately don’t agree with, to determine what the Constitution and precedent requires?”
When asked if she had any advice for the new Supreme Court justice, Barrett said:
“I think one of the difficult things that I experienced that I wasn’t really fully prepared for, was the shift into being a public figure.”
