(LibertySociety.com) – Former Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) spoke out against President Joe Biden’s promise to choose a black woman to replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the US Supreme Court. She’s angry the leader is not choosing from the pool of qualified candidates, but rather picking a nominee based on gender and race. Gabbard went on to state the president used the same criteria to select his vice president, and she doesn’t feel the decision is turning out too well. In fact, the former legislator said it’s “been a disaster.”

Gabbard and Republicans like Senator Ted Cruz (TX) find it offensive to eliminate other qualified candidates by narrowing potential choices to a specific pool of people. The Texas lawmaker believes by doing so, Biden is actually insulting black women across America.
Many on the Right interpret the president’s move as affirmative action and identity politics, which Gabbard said is “destroying the country.”
Biden chose Harris as his VP because of the color of her skin and sex—not qualification. She's been a disaster. Now he promises to choose Supreme Court nominee on the same criteria. Identity politics is destroying our country.

During his presidential campaign, Biden promised to nominate a black woman for Supreme Court if the opportunity presented itself. The president should announce his pick to the nation and pass it on to the Senate by the end of February.
