Well, it’s settled then —Ketanji Brown Jackson and Barack Obama are both “perfect.”
Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s daytime gab fest The View, compared Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson to former President Barack Obama, describing them as “perfect.”
“During the show’s opening segment, the host, who regularly praises liberals and criticizes conservatives, claimed Jackson reminded her of Obama “because he was also perfect” and “had nothing wrong going on,” Fox News reports.
“All I have to say is here you have a woman, Ketanji, who reminded me of Obama a little bit because he was also perfect. He had nothing wrong going on,” Behar said. “It’s like the movie ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,’ where Sidney Poitier plays this psychologist or doctor who’s perfect.”
“They have to have a perfect Black person to run otherwise the Republicans will not be able to deal with it,” she added. “So what you have here are 50 senators who are going to vote against this woman, who is above reproach, the first Black woman in that position. That is going to be on their record, and that’s why they’re asking these dumb questions.”
