President Joe Biden (D) has made his announcement that he’ll only appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court, meaning that no one else—no white man or woman, or Hispanic man or woman, or Asian man or woman will even be considered. Biden has set a purely racist and sexist pair of requirements as his primary criteria for a Supreme Court Justice.
Now Biden is objecting to the hue and cry over his racism and sexism.
The White House is…saying that Republicans who are criticizing President Biden for his promise to appoint a Black female to the bench did not object when former President Trump made a similar promise to nominate a female to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2020.
And through his White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates,
When Donald Trump promised to nominate a woman to the Supreme Court just over a year ago none of these members objected[.]
Biden, again through Bates, also claimed that then-Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan also promised to appoint a woman to the Supreme Court.
But Biden’s claims are patently false, as Jonathan Turley points out.
Trump, when he said that he would be putting a woman on the Supreme Court, had already spent months and months with a public short list that they’d been vetting. … And when he [Trump] said he was going to put a woman on the court, it was days before he was going to announce her name.
Reagan said that he would give one of his first positions, one of the vacancies, to a woman, but the White House stressed that was not a guarantee, and when O’Connor was selected, he had a short list with a majority of men on it.
What these presidents didn’t do is they didn’t say that they would not consider anyone else beyond people with this race, this gender[.]
Biden knows this as fully and as clearly as does Turley.
Lies are the blanket over the head of cowards.
