During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki revealed that Joe Biden is “absolutely” committed to nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court.
During his campaign, Biden promised to put a Black woman on the nation’s highest court in order to appeal to the critical race theorists of the Democrat Party. The campaign promise was put in the spotlight as a reporter asked Psaki if the Biden team was considering giving favorable chances to political nominees of certain skin color.
Biden’s campaign pandering came back to the spotlight after he released his first federal judicial picks, a group of 11 attorneys that included multiple Black women.
Psaki lauded over Biden’s picks.
“I think there is an incredible group of nominees the president announced today. … As someone who served for 17 years on the Senate Judiciary Committee as chairman and ranking member, he has a long history on judicial appointments,” Psaki said.
“This is a priority for him, but our focus is getting the Senate to confirm this group of nominees and to continue to build … a pipeline of additional highly qualified nominees who are going to reflect the values the president has outlined.”
Psaki had to point out to a reporter that Biden could not install someone to the Supreme Court just yet because none had just died.
“That would require there being an opening on the Supreme Court,” she said. “Of course, there is not an opening on the Supreme Court.”
Of the Democrat-appointed justices on the conservative-majority Supreme Court, liberal Stephen Breyer is the oldest and is expected to turn 83 this year.
