Two women confront Lindsey Graham in airport over Amy Coney Barrett nomination

Graham repeatedly asked where the women were from, before criticizing Seattle in the videoed exchange.

In the video, a woman wearing a mask approaches Graham and appears to be recording him with her phone. She says"Look me in the eye...""Where are you from?" Graham asks. The woman replies that she's from Seattle, and continues to speak before another woman can be heard asking:"Why does it matter where she's from? She's American."

Graham and his staff walk away from the women, who follow them up as they head upstairs."You work for me, sir," the woman goes on."I pay your salary, sir."At that point, Graham turns to the woman and asks:"Where are you from?"

"It doesn't matter where I'm from," she says."I'm from the United States of America, sir, where are you from?""I'm just off the plane," Graham says."You sure are," the woman says."And you're gonna make my children, my daughter, who stood on the shoulders of giants, you're gonna take their rights away, by voting for this woman [Barrett] who's a racist?"

The woman is referring to the possibility that Barrett would deliver the crucial vote to overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade. There is no evidence Barrett is racist but there have been criticisms of her decision not to say whether racism is systemic.

"Well I'm enthusiastically gonna support Judge Barrett," Graham says as one of the women tries to argue about women's rights. The other speaks over her, asking him"Why?""Because she's highly qualified," Graham says. The woman replies"She's not" and the video ends. At least one of the women may have been filming the exchange and it's possible further video will emerge.

Barrett was nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away in September. Graham shared a video of a confrontation with two women opposed to Barrett's confirmation.
