‘It’s Offensive And Insulting’: Ted Cruz Loses It Over Biden’s Promise To Nominate a Black Woman To Supreme Court



Ted Cruz racist

Sen. Rafael (Ted) Cruz wants everyone to know that he is deeply “offended and insulted” by the prospect of having a black woman in the Supreme court.

The Texas Republican used Sunday’s episode of his podcast “Verdict with Ted Cruz” to vent his anger at President Joe Biden over his commitment to nominate the first Black woman to the high court, calling the move “offensive” and “insulting”, saying that black women represent only 6 percent of the population.

“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. You know, you know Black women are what, 6% of the US population? He’s saying to 94% of Americans, ‘I don’t give a damn about you, you are ineligible’,” Cruz said.

“And he’s also saying — it’s actually an insult to Black women. If he came and said, ‘I’m gonna put the best jurist on the court and he looked at a number of people and he ended up nominating a Black woman, he could credibly say, ‘OK I’m nominating the person who’s most qualified.’ He’s not even pretending to say that he’s saying, ‘If you’re a White guy, tough luck. If you’re a White woman, tough luck. You don’t qualify,'” Rafael added.

As expected, the internet had to respond. Watch the video and some of the reactions below:
