‘I am angry’: Warren rebukes leaked Supreme Court opinion

Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, seemed visibly distressed as she spoke with reporters on Tuesday about the Supreme Court’s leaked draft ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Warren attacks the Supreme Court in a video posted to Twitter while speaking to a group of activists in front of the court about a case involving abortion restrictions.

“I am angry,” she stated as she marched to a demonstration. ”A angry, upset, and determined.”

“I am angry,” she said again after arriving at a gathering outside the Supreme Court. “I am here because I’m angry, and I’m here because the US Congress can change all of this!! Angry, but committed.”

Politico, a political news organization, shocked Washington and the country on Monday night when it published a leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion overturning the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion statewide.

The February draft could still change before the expected June verdict. However, the court’s conservative majority appears likely to overturn Roe, a long-held Republican policy goal. A decision like this would send abortion laws to the states, and many Republican-led states have already passed laws making abortion illegal once the Supreme Court rules.

“They’ve been out there plotting, carefully cultivating these Supreme Court justices so they could have a majority on the bench who would accomplish something that the majority of Americans do not want,” Warren added, criticizing the court’s “extremist” majority.

Of course, it’s manufactured rage for the camera, but it won’t save the Democrats in November like they hope it will.
