Fox News host Tucker Carlson waded into the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Tuesday, pointing out that President Joe Biden selected her because of skin color and gender first and not her qualifications, noting that she has the same viewpoint as any white liberal does.

“As if this country’s core institutions have not been degraded or diminished enough with pregnant flight suits and an FBI that behaves like Nancy Pelosi’s pretorian guard, as if that weren’t bad enough, Joe Biden announced in January his plan to choose the next Supreme Court justice on the basis of appearance. The Supreme Court. You never thought that would happen. The sociology department, maybe. Your company, perhaps. But the Supreme Court really matters,” the conservative host began.

“What does appearance have to do with ability or fealty to the Constitution? Joe Biden never explained. He did indicate, to be fair, that he would prefer a lawyer for the job, maybe even a clever one, but mostly he said he wanted a black woman — genetics being the single most important factor in what we used to call judicial temperament,” he continued.

“How does that work, exactly? How did genes determine your ability as a Supreme Court justice or a surgeon or an airline pilot or anything else? We would love to hear Joe Biden explain that, but he didn’t. Instead, he embarked on a predictably short nationwide search for such a candidate and located in the end, a person called Ketanji Brown Jackson. Her confirmation hearings continue today for the second day. Not surprisingly, given how she got this job, most of the talk in Washington was not about what she’s done, how she thinks, what she’s like as a person, but instead about how she looks. It’s not shallow or anything,” Carlson continued.

If confirmed, Brown Jackson will be the first black woman on the Supreme Court just as Biden promised. But many contend that doesn’t make her the most qualified to sit on the high court.

Mocking the woke policies of Democrats and in particular taking a shot at Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and his “black experience,” Carlson stated that Brown Jackson thinks like “a garden variety white liberal.” His determination is likely based on her rulings on child pornography and Critical Race Theory among other issues… subjects Senator Ted Cruz quizzed Brown Jackson on.

“I could not stop being just joyous as you were sitting in my office,” Booker groveled in front of Brown Jackson. “And I couldn’t stop bringing up to you the historical nature of this. Forgive me. I grew up in a small black church where I was taught to make a joyous noise unto the Lord and this is not a normal day for America. We’ve never had this moment before.”

“‘I grew up in a small, black church.’ No, you didn’t,” Carlson said.

“Another lecture about the black experience from a blue-eyed Yale graduate who, in fact, grew up in an all-white town, the son of IBM executives. Is there anyone on this planet phonier than Cory Booker?” the Fox News host asked.

“Ketanji Brown Jackson doesn’t seem quite so fraudulent. That would be impossible, but she does, and this is the key, share a resume that is strikingly similar to Cory Booker’s — daughter of academics, graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, on the board of the single wokest day school in Washington, DC, etc. You know exactly how that story turns out, because in the end, when they tell you you’re getting a black nominee, they’re not talking about the son of a maid and a farmworker from Pinpoint, Georgia. In fact, we already have a Supreme Court justice like that. His name is Clarence Thomas. He’s a great man, even if no one in Washington will acknowledge that,” Carlson said, pointing out the hypocrisy of a selection based on race.

“What they mean when they tell you you’re getting a black Supreme Court justice is that you’re getting yet another Democratic Party robot with the same rigid and totally predictable views as your average professional class white liberal, but who happens to be tanner than Joe Biden,” he bluntly commented.

“So, identical – identical – to everyone else in power, just a different shade. And the shade, to be fair, does make all the difference. That’s the whole point of the exercise. Because of the way that she looks, Brown Jackson, who again, is just a garden variety white liberal in what she believes, because of the way she looks, this nominee will get nowhere near the vetting of a typical Supreme Court justice. And that, whatever your politics are, is a shame,” Carlson concluded.
