“I appreciated judge, you said that you did not want to be queen,” Klobuchar began. “I would not mind being a queen around here, the truth be known.”

“I wouldn’t mind doing it,” she continued. “Kind of a benevolent queen in making decisions so we could get things done.”

Earlier in the hearing, Barrett specifically said she would not act like a “queen” if confirmed by the Senate to the Supreme Court.

“Judges can’t just wake up one day and say, ‘I have an agenda. I like guns. I hate guns. I like abortion. I hate abortion’ and walk in like a royal queen and impose, you know, their will on the world,” she said.

Later in the hearing, Klobuchar asked whether Barrett considered Roe vs. Wade a “super-precedent” of American law.

When Barrett asked Klobuchar how she defined “super-precedent” the Minnesota senator appeared insulted.

“I actually, I might, I thought someday I might be sitting in that chair, I’m not,” she replied. “I’m up here, so I’m asking you.”
