Democrat Representative Cori Bush dropped the hammer on President Joe Biden, saying he should not be “pitting black women against each other” over his SCOTUS nomination.
“President Joe Biden’s vow to put the first black woman on the Supreme Court continued to backfire this week when Rep. Cori Bush accused him of ‘pitting Black women against each other,'” reports Breitbart News.
“During an interview with Punchbowl News, Bush was asked if the Congressional Black Caucus had come to an agreement on who the president should pick. While Judge J. Michelle Childs has been a floated favorite, Bush said that she would not comment on any particular person,” reports Breitbart News.
“While Bush did not like that Biden’s pick would pit black women against each other, she acknowledged that the pick was necessary, though she listed some important qualifications,” according to Breitbart News.
“Getting a Black woman in the seat is necessary, but we want to make sure that it’s a Black woman who’s strong on criminal justice reform, has that type of history, strong on worker protections. I don’t have a name. I want the person who has those qualifications to rise to the top,” Bush said.
A recent ABC poll revealed that 76% of Americans want President Biden to consider all possible nominees, while only 23% want him to keep his commitment to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court.
