Joe Biden Supreme Court WTF?!

Ted Cruz Says It Should Be ‘Illegal’ For Biden To Nominate A Black Woman To The Supreme Court

Proving that he never tires of saying offensive and stupid things in order to prove his fealty to the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now declaring that he believes it should be illegal for President Joe Biden to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday morning, Cruz suggested that Biden’s unwillingness to consider white men to replace Justice Stephen Breyer is discriminatory:

“Democrats today believe in racial discrimination, they’re committed to it as a political proposition. I think it is wrong to stand up and say we’re going to discriminate, this administration is going to discriminate. What the president said is that only African-American women are eligible for this slot. They said that 94% of Americans are ineligible.”

However, Cruz failed to mention that when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, then-President Donald Trump pledged to replace her with another woman. Where was Cruz’s outrage that men weren’t being considered?

What the Texas Republican said next completely undercut the premise of his false outrage:

“I think our country has such a troubled history on race, we ought to move past discriminating based on race.”

Yes, the country does indeed have a troubled history on race, and since a black woman has never served on the highest court in the land, shouldn’t we try to make sure the Supreme Court more accurately reflects the current racial makeup of the United States?

Cruz ended his ridiculous rant by telling host Bill Hemmer:

“The way Biden ought to do it is to say I’m going to look for the best justice, interview a lot of people. And if he happened to nominate a justice who was an African-American woman, great. But you know what? If Fox News put a posting, we’re looking for a new host for Fox News Sunday and we will only hire an African-American woman or a Hispanic man or a Native American woman, that would be illegal. Nobody else can do what Joe Biden did.”

Sorry, Ted, but we can see right through your bigotry and narrowminded thinking. If you don’t approve of who the president nominates, vote against them. But please stop trying cloak your prejudice in a bogus cry for inclusion.
