On Monday evening, the House Judiciary Committee tweeted a gloating jab at Hillary Clinton following the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Amy Coney Barrett, confirmed. Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton!

The juvenile behavior of the committee, whose ranking member is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), promptly earned criticism from commenters on social media.
You are fine examples for our children

As someone who was a Republican when it was a principles based party, I am repulsed by its current juvenilism. Why don’t you all grow up?

Imagine an entire political party having the emotional intelligence of a petty six year old who didn’t get invited to a birthday party — oh, wait, I didn’t have to imagine.

What an absolutely bizarre and psychopathic way to “celebrate” the “victory” of getting another right-winger onto the SCOTUS bench. Thanks for reminding millions to VOTE OUT the GOP at all levels of government.

I’m screenshotting this and I will absolutely shove it up your asses over and over and over in 2021.
You are going to HATE next year.

You are hideous people. Hijackers of justice. Genocidal dictator apologists. Faux leaders who turn the other cheek to bounties on our soldiers. I hope your pearl-wearing agent of the patriarchy was worth it when you all lose your jobs.

Time to expand the court.
You built this.
