The United States Senate on Monday confirmed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court.

Fifty-two Republicans voted to confirm, while Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) joined all Democrats in voting no, resulting in a 52-48 outcome.

Judge Barrett will participate in a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House on Monday evening and will be officially sworn in as Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday morning.

Democrats had harsh words about the process.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NY) ripped the “illegitimate nominee rushed through an illegitimate process.”

“They’ve rigged the courts to overturn or gut laws they don’t like & undermined voters so they can hang on to power,” said Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR).

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said, “the duplicitous and hypocritical manner of this rushed confirmation process demonstrates a flagrant disregard for American democracy.”

“The Republicans are popping champagne tonight to celebrate how they for shoved aside the wishes of the American people to steal a Supreme Court seat & impose their radical agenda on the country – an agenda most Americans don’t support,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.

The View’s Ana Navarro bashes Republicans refusing to stop Trump: ‘They’re going to go down in shame’

"The View" co-hosts are furious that President Donald Trump is still refusing to stand down after losing the 2020 election. To make matters worse, Republican communications consultant Ana Navarro blames Republicans for allowing the madness to persist for so long that it's now starting to put the United States in a compromised situation.

"Look, I don't know what it's going to take because really it should have happened weeks ago," said Navarro. "States are beginning to certify their results. Electors vote in a couple of weeks, but you know, Whoopi, I keep talking about history and how history is going to judge this. There are going to be books written about this. It's going to be studied by school kids in 30 years and 40 years."
