MSNBC Regular on Biden SCOTUS Pick: ‘I’m For Everybody Black’

MSNBC was a familiar name. Cross ConnectionTiffany Cross is a host on MSNBC. Nation correspondent, and bombastic provocateur Elie Mystal on Saturday to discuss the open Supreme Court seat and sure enough, Mystal delivered, insisting that, whomever President Biden selects will be “immensely” and “immaculately qualified,” Republicans don’t believe in placing non-white, non-men on the bench, and he’d support the pick no matter what.



Mystal asked the Republicans to explain why, even if they are looking for qualified candidates, they have never taken into consideration those allegedly on Biden’s List, like Sherrilyn Ifill and Ketanji brown Jackson.

Since Mystal was apparently being serious, we’ll explain this as simply as possible: Because they’re liberals and their judicial approach would be contrary to the constitutionalist, original-intent philosophy that Republicans favor. Would Biden consider — or Mystal support — a black woman who was a judicial conservative? It’s not possible!

According to Scott Jennings, CNN’s Friday Night Commentator, it is worth checking out how Biden has been doing. felt aboutJanice Rogers Brown

Mystal claimed next that it is about judicial nominees. Republicans won’t give non-white and non-males any chance when they get their hands on power.

Clarence Thomas? Again, the lower court nominated such as Brown or Miguel Estrada were blocked by Mystal’s team.

Mystal stated that he would not express any preference for any nominee from any specific background. Instead, He stated that he is for all people black.Think of someone saying, “Everybody is white!”

Last time we looked, one-third of Trump’s SCOTUS nominees were “non-male,” although that hasn’t stopped Cross from repeatedly slurring Justice Amy Coney Barrett as “an actual Handmaid.”  And even as per the statistics that the show displayed, about 15 percent of Trump’s judicial appointments were non-white. 

Finally, Mystal declared (and Cross agreed) that whomever Biden nominates “will be attacked in the most scurrilous, trifling, ways.”

Elie, it seems you are confusing Republicans with Democrats. These are the same people who attacked Thomas Kavanaugh and Brett Kavanaugh with a scurrilous manner. 

Subway and Verizon sponsored Elie Mystal, a MSNBC regular, on Tiffany Cross’s MSNBC program. Mystal made outrageous and absurd comments about Biden being a potential SCOTUS nominee.

The transcript is here.

TIFFANY Cross: Elie! You wrote an amazing piece in The NationYour comments highlighted the fact Joe Biden is truly a man of many riches, especially when it comes down to nominating a Supreme Court judge from among Black women. I would love to know your thoughts about this and the priorities that you feel should be given by the administration.

ELIE MYSTAL : Oh, you can see it. The person they choose will be highly qualified. Perfectly qualified. And really what Republicans have to answer for me is, why haven’t these people been on their lists, right? If they’re so — they’re so interested in finding the best possible person regardless of race, color, or creed, regardless of gender, then tell me why didn’t you guys vet Sherrilyn Iffil, who has the same qualifications as Thurgood Marshall once did when he became the first black man on the Supreme Court? 

Why didn’t you vet Ketanji Brown Jackson? Her name was included on the Merrick Garland shortlist. She’s a Harvard-educated lawyer who’s been the head of the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Wouldn’t it be nice to get tough sometimes on crime? 

Nah, nah. See? When they are in power, these people don’t want to give nonwhite and non-males any chance, right?

This is why Trump appointed 85 of 226 Judges he Nominated — they were all white. 75 percent of the judges were male. The other side cares more about race, color and creed in appointing judges. They are not right. Biden’s decision to highlight a group that has been historically neglected is not a problem. He will find someone with impeccable qualifications, which is why I don’t understand the problem. A Brown Jackson, a Michelle Childs, or Sherrilyn Forill have better resumes than you. He’ll choose a wonderful one, so I’m sure he’ll.

Very much on the — in terms of, like, who should he — I’m very much on the “I have room “All blacks are welcome.” Like, I don’t — I’m not picking through my favorites. I’m not choosing between my children — any — because here’s the thing. It is crucial. Because whoever he picks, we know that they will be attacked in the most scurrilous, trifling

CROSS: Yeah.

MYSTAL: — ways, right? And I am sick, I am sick and tired of people being like oh, I don’t like that woman but not -– I would vote for a woman but not that woman. I don’t want to hear anything about that. I don’t want to hear like, oh, he nominated Leondra Kruger. But if — I don’t support her. However, he could have nominated Oprah. I’d be there. No! No.

CROSS: Right.

MYSTAL – Whoever he nominates me, I’m going to lay on the tracks to defend. Also It is my hope that many people will be there to support me. So that’s why I really don’t want to get into, like, which qualifications matter more? Just, whoever he picks, I’m there.
