Joe Biden got his chance to put his stamp on the Supreme Court.
But that opportunity immediately blew up in his face.
Tucker Carlson exposed Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee with this question.
Joe Biden named D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as his selection to replace left-wing Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.
Biden’s nomination of Judge Brown immediately attracted controversy because of Biden’s promise to only consider the affirmative action criteria of race and gender when picking Breyer’s successor.
In the 2020 campaign, Biden pledged to only pick a black woman for the Supreme Court.
Under virtually any other hiring circumstances this would be illegal but because the Supreme Court is a political appointment it passes muster.
Judge Brown’s only served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for one year and published just two opinions.
In light of that resume, Tucker Carlson said there was an easy way for Biden to prove Judge Brown was one of America’s great legal minds.
“That’s not a name most Americans know because Ketanji Brown Jackson has been an appellate judge for less than a year. But Joe Biden assured us she is, quote, ‘one of our top legal minds,’” Carlson began.
“So, is Ketanji Brown Jackson—a name that even Joe Biden has trouble pronouncing—one of the top legal minds in the entire country?” Carlson continued.
Carlson stated that Judge Brown should release her LSAT score – the standardized test law school applicants take – to prove her legal intellect.
“We certainly hope so. Biden’s right. Appointing her is one of his gravest constitutional duties. So it might be time for Joe Biden to let us know what Ketanji Brown Jackson’s LSAT score was,” Carlson added.
Carlson claimed this disclosure would settle any questions about Judge Brown’s qualifications.
“How did she do on the LSATs? Why wouldn’t you tell us that? That would settle the question conclusively as to whether she’s a once-in-a-generation legal talent, the next Learned Hand. It would seem like Americans in a democracy have a right to know that and much more before giving her a lifetime appointment, but we didn’t hear that,” Carlson concluded.
Joe Biden created this mess.
By stating he would only consider a black woman for the Supreme Court, Biden put the thought in the minds of voters that Biden put qualifications second.
Critics whined about Carlson’s questions claiming it was unfair to Judge Brown to demand she produce her LSAT score.
But had Biden said he would like to nominate a black woman instead of promising to only consider a black woman, Judge Brown would have avoided questions about her qualifications.
