Gabbard compares Biden’s future Supreme Court pick to Kamala Harris ‘disaster’

FFormer Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has compared President Joe Biden’s future Supreme Court pick to the “disaster” she thinks Kamala Harris has been as vice president.

Gabbard voiced concerns Monday on Twitter about Biden’s future Supreme Court pick. Biden promised he would choose a black woman, noting he would use the same criteria he promised to use when selecting his running mate in the 2020 election.

“Biden chose Harris as VP based on skin color and gender – not qualifying,” Gabbard tweeted. “She was a disaster. Now he promises to choose a Supreme Court nominee on the same criteria. Identity politics is destroying our country.”

Biden advocated early in his campaign for the nomination of a diverse number of candidates under his administration. “We need to put a black woman on the Supreme Court,” then-nominee Biden tweeted in February 2020. That move, along with the promise to appoint a black woman as vice president, helped Biden to win the endorsement of Rep. Jim Clyburn in South Carolina, who was instrumental in cementing Biden’s approval within the Democratic Party.

Biden has appointed more black women to the United States Court of Appeals than any other administration before him, with eight nominations and five confirmations to date. Although the president did not name a candidate to replace Judge Stephen Breyer, legal analysts noted that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit was on the list. restriction of former President Barack Obama in 2016.
