Tucker Carlson has said that Biden’s pledge to appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court will lead to ‘tribal warfare.’

In his Fox News show Wednesday night, the Fox News host knocked Biden’s 2020 election campaign promise as identity politics.
According to Tucker, Biden only considered the skin color of candidates, not their qualifications.
During the same interview, he also took aim at Stephen Breyer’s resignation, noting that Breyer himself had not yet announced his resignation and implying that his resignation had been forced.
In addition to Carlson’s remarks, the White House confirmed that Biden will keep his campaign promise to appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court, while Bryer is expected to announce his retirement as soon as today.
If picked, it would mark the first appointment of a black woman to the nation’s highest court.
In response to the announcement, speculation has intensified over who Biden will nominate, although Carlson argued that speculation should be centered on the qualifications rather than the skin color of the candidates.
On CNN’s presidential debate in March 2020, Biden said: ‘I committed that if I’m elected president and have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts will be I’ll appoint the first Black woman to the courts.
‘If my cabinet, my administration will look like the country and I commit that, I will in fact appoint a, I’ll pick a woman to be vice president.’
Carlson explained that when Biden made the statement in 2020 he ‘didn’t mention the Supreme Court nominee’s legal qualifications or judicial philosophy or ability to perform one of the most important jobs in the country.
‘He didn’t even tell us she was a nice person. All he said was she’s going to be Black and she’s going to be female, because to him, that’s all that mattered,’ he continued.
After accusing Biden of ‘believing all Black women are the same,’ Carlson asked his viewers to imagine that they are qualified nominees learning that they are primarily scrutinized due to their race.
Tucker also disputed Biden’s assertion that he wanted the Supreme Court to ‘look like the country’ by mentioning census data indicating that only around 7 percent of US citizens are black women.
In Carlson’s view, this could lead to identity politics and tribal warfare, as other minority groups in society will wonder why they are not represented on the court.
Tucker pondered, ‘Why isn’t there an American Indian on the court or a genderqueer or someone from the chronic fatigue syndrome community or a justice with cognitive disabilities? Why isn’t there an Afghan refugee under consideration?’
‘Identity politics always ends with tribal warfare. It’s funny the Biden people can’t see that maybe they can see it and don’t care, or maybe it’s the entire point of the exercise,’ he went on.
Carlson criticized the credentials of those who have been named as potential nominees thus far.
He noted that Eunice Lee, said to be a CNN recommended judge, had been appointed in August 2021. Tucker mentioned Candice Jackson Academy, who’s only been on the bench since last July. Another possible pick, Sherrilyn Ifill, isn’t even a judge, according to Tucker.
Wilhelmina Mimi Wright also has been mentioned. She joined the Minnesota Supreme Court as an associate in 2012. Carlson expressed outrage that at the time, MSM praised her for her skin color instead of her expertise.
Additionally, he attacked the media for its coverage of Ketanji Brown Jackson as a possible nominee, asking his viewers how it must be to have her qualifications overlooked by commentators focused on race instead.
In addition to questioning the circumstances surrounding Breyer’s resignation, Carlson questioned the timing of it.
‘It’s not even clear Breyer knew the announcement was going to happen. Someone leaked that news with or without Justice Breyer’s consent.’
Tucker said that the Democrats were afraid of losing their majority in Congress in November, and were therefore seeking to protect the seat.
It has been rumored that Breyer is under pressure to step down in order to allow Biden to appoint his replacement. He is one of the three remaining liberal justices and is the oldest member of the court.
This court term will end in early June or mid-July. Biden’s commitment to his 2020 campaign was confirmed by the White House on Wednesday.
‘The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that,’ Jen Psaki said this week.
The list of possibles includes the worst-case scenario of Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner of Georgia who is the sister of voting-rights advocate Stacey Abrams. With Biden go full radical mode, we believe he will select Judge Abrams so that she can wage war from the highest court on the American people.

Additional options are federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson who issued the ‘presidents are not kings’ ruling, Leondra Kruger of California’s Supreme Court and J. Michelle Childs of South Carolina who has the support of Rep. Jim Clyburn.
NBC reported on Jackson’s ruling which dealt with Trump documents regarding events on January 6 that she “sided with the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot by refusing to block the release of scores of White House documents from the Trump administration. The ruling from Judge Tanya S. Chutkan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia means the first batch of disputed documents is set to be turned over to the House select committee by Friday.”
MSNBC further reported that “The federal judge [Jackson] seemed wholly unimpressed with Team Trump’s legal arguments, explaining in her ruling that the former president “does not acknowledge the deference owed to the incumbent President’s judgment. His position that he may override the express will of the executive branch appears to be premised on the notion that his executive power ‘exists in perpetuity.’ But Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President.”
Biden did not comment on who he may nominate for the bench, noting that Mr. Breyer has not yet officially announced his retirement.
