Well, that didn’t take long. After President Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, there were some media figures who held their tongue for at least a few hours. But the hot takes were bound to come and now they are flowing.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes decided to get in on the act by suggesting that Amy Coney Barrett attending a Rose Garden ceremony is somehow proof that she lacks the judgement to be a Supreme Court judge.

To start, what exactly is the insinuation here as far as this being a “super spreader event?” Was that on the invitations? How was anyone supposed to know that there would be an outbreak? Has Chris decried other outdoor events, such as protests? You know the answer to that.

Calling this a super spreader event is simply hind-sight. It’s not valuable in judging anything about the event at the time it was happening. It’s certainly not valuable in trying to disqualify a judicial nominee you don’t like.

Of course, because this is 2020, there’s a counter to everything. In this case, Chris forgot something very important given his criticism and was reminded of it.

If you’ll recall at the time, liberals were freaking out over the possibility that RBG had been exposed to something.

Instead of blaming RBG, most of the left blamed the guy who put up the wedding photo, as if him merely posting it had put her life at risk. She had made the decision to be there though. Was she not fit for the court for attending a possible “super-spread” event without a mask? According to Chris Hayes’ logic, the answer is yes, she should have resigned immediately.

But he offered no criticism of RBG’s decision at the time because this isn’t really about judgement. It’s just a partisan desperately flailing about to stop a Supreme Court nomination he disapproves of.
