SC Rep. James Clyburn forced Biden to promise to appoint a black woman to SCOTUS

Biden has lost in Iowa and New Hampshire. He was desperate to win in the 2020 South Carolina primaries. And so, he caved.

And now, with the first vacancy of his presidency, that’s what he’s gonna do.

According to Fox News:

In their book “Lucky”, journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes wrote that a frustrated Clyburn confronted Biden off-stage during a debate in February 2020 and urged him to pledge to nominate a Black woman to the nation’s highest court. Biden made the pledge later in the debate and received Clyburn’s endorsement the next day which many believe catapulted his struggling campaign to the front of the pack.

“Not a single time has a Black woman ever been seriously considered,” the South Carolina Democrat told the Washington Post. “And so I took that issue up with then candidate Biden back in 2020. Twenty that I thought that the time of the right for us to do something about that. How many times have you heard it said that black women are the backbone of the Democratic Party?”

Clyburn continued, “Well, you just can’t say you’ve got to show it. I happen to have been born and raised in the past, and I believe it’s their deeds that matter, not their words. And so President Biden made it a commitment at the Charleston debate back in February. Two years ago, and said that if he got the opportunity, he would appoint or nominate an African-American woman to serve on the court.”

  1. Portrait of a hollow man selling his soul for porridge, one bowlful at a time. Now we have an empty vessel with a deficient cortex running the country. Is this a great country, or what?
