Yo, hasn’t anyone ever told Chuck that racism isn’t cool? Apparently he didn’t get the memo!
Senate Minority Chuck Schumer voted “no” on judicial judge nominee Marvin Quattlebaum. His reasoning behind the vote had nothing to do with policy or quarrel, but rather skin color.
Ring, ring…This is the 21st century. Decent human beings don’t judge people based on skin color.
“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary. Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American,” Schumer said.
“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued, “It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”
Perhaps Senate Democrats should be more worried about the lack of diversity on their own staffs than attacking an extremely well-qualified judicial nominee from the great state of South Carolina. https://t.co/unrR7Cz7Mp

I wish I could say that we are being Punk’d, and that Ashton Kutcher will be popping our any second….but sadly, this is real. This is what liberal politicians have succumbed to.
