Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett was interrupted by a left-wing heckler who called her an “enslaver of women” while speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library about the challenges of life in the spotlight, but the unflappable mother of seven handled the childish outburst without batting an eyelash.
The protester screamed, “Amy Coney Barrett, you are a woman enslaver!”
Barrett calmly responded, “As a mother of seven, I am used to distractions — and sometimes even outbursts,” to cheers and applause from the audience.
