Ted Cruz: Nominating Black Woman To Supreme Court Is ‘Actually An Insult To Black Women’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) drew anger on Monday as he joined the chorus of criticism from conservatives over President Joe Biden’s vow to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court.

“The fact that he’s willing to make a promise at the outset, that it must be a Black woman, I gotta say that’s offensive,” the senator said on his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz.”

Cruz said it’s “actually an insult to Black women” that Biden has promised to nominate a Black woman to fill retiring Justice Stephen Breyer’s seat on the Supreme Court, claiming that the president was “not even pretending” to say his nominee would be the most qualified.

“He’s saying, ‘If you’re a white guy, tough luck. If you’re a white woman, tough luck. You don’t qualify,’” Cruz added.

Cruz’s comments went viral on Twitter.

“The only thing insulting to this Black woman is Ted Cruz thinking he speaks for us,” Rep. Marilyn Strickland (D-Wash.) responded.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) accused Senate Republicans of “disgracing themselves” with the attacks on the “important milestone in American history.”
