Biden lashes out at GOP’s ‘verbal abuse’ against Ketanji Brown Jackson_1.mp4

Joe Biden will deliver a White House speech today honoring the confirmation of his first Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, who will become the court’s first black female judge when she joins the bench later this year.

After gaining the support of three Republican senators—Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney—she also gained the support of all 50 Democrats. The president shared a video yesterday of him watching the confirmation vote with Ms. Brown Jackson by his side.

Meanwhile, Republican Senator Tim Scott has lashed out at criticism from progressive pundits after voting “no” to the judge’s confirmation. He specifically attacked MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid after she accused him of allowing “Lindsey Graham and the Sheriffs” to “let him out” to support conservative policies. “Now he agrees to Lindsey’s dog barking racism against Judge Jackson because: He’s Tim Scott,” she tweeted.

“What’s so offensive about what Joy says is that a black man can’t think for himself,” Scott said in response.
