A heated debate during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on abortion has gone viral after Berkeley Law Professor Khiara Bridges accused Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) of asking "transphobic" questions that could "open up trans people to violence." While multiple prominent media figures jumped to join Bridges in labeling the GOP senator as "transphobic" for preferring the word "women" over "people with a capacity for pregnancy," very few are willing to discuss the actual topic of the hearing, and this includes the liberal professor herself.
Asked by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas ) if she thinks "a baby that is not yet born has value," Bridges flat out refused to answer, saying instead, "I believe that a person with a capacity for pregnancy has value. They have intelligence. They have agency. They have abilities."
"I said the baby," Cornyn stated.
"And I'm talking about the person with the capacity for pregnancy," Bridges repeated.
"You're not answering the question I'm asking," said Cornyn.
"I'm answering a more interesting question to me," came Bridges' completely ludicrous reply.
On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray all agreed that the progressive left has completely abandoned reality, and Professor Bridges' outlandish performance just proved it. But the worst part of the exchange is Bridges' arrogance throughout it all — which, Glenn explained, actually may be the flaw that ultimately causes its own defeat.
