After three days of Republican senators failing to get traction in their attacks on Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, Fox News trotted out a new argument on Wednesday evening.
Laura Ingraham, who went to law school at the University of Virginia and clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas before becoming a corporate attorney, argued that senators have a duty to reject Judge Jackson because of President Joe Biden's approval ratings.
"Rushing to approve a Supreme Court nominee of a president, with what? An approval rating that always seems to be hitting new lows," she said.
"That, my friends, is a violation of the basic, sacred duty that each and every senator, himself or herself, has agreed to," Ingraham argued.
