Did President Obama just toss out a racist joke?
While addressing students at the University of Chicago Law School Thursday afternoon, Obama said that even though his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court seat left vacant by the late Justice Antonin Scalia is white, he’s nonetheless “an outstanding jurist.”
The president explained what he’d done to make the high court diverse by appointing two women — one a Latina — before addressing his most recent nominee, Merrick Garland.
“And so, when I look at Merrick Garland, that was the person that … you know, the difference between the Supreme Court is that it’s just a handful of seats come up at any given time. Now, I appointed a Latino woman, and another woman right before that, so…” he said.
“You know, yeah, he’s a white guy, But he’s a really outstanding jurist,” he said in his defense. “Sorry!”
