Leave it to leftist media activists to find a way to exploit the glorious day of a great victory for their side to harp about perceived racial injustice,s but that’s exactly what NBC’s Yamiche Alcindor did when she tried to spin Rand Paul’s delayed vote during the coronation of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

With Senate Republicans left with no hope of opposing Biden’s nominee after the usual suspects of Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney announced that they would be joining with Democrats, Paul’s apparent lack of enthusiasm to speed along the ceremony of a judge whose questionable decisions could have had her disqualified was understandable, but to those who specialize in stirring the racial pot, it was unforgivable.

Alcindor, who was hired away from PBS for a vastly higher profile gig by NBC last year claimed that Paul’s not being speedy enough to her liking was an “unusual” and “unsettling development” and par for the course, she suggested that he was almost certainly motivated by racism.

“But still waiting again for Senator Paul,” NBC’s Lester Holt said during the network’s live coverage of the vote as he set the table for Alcindor to opine on “whether there’s a statement being made” by the Kentucky senator’s tardiness.

“That is a key question here,” Alcindor said, citing a report that Senator Paul’s aides “closed the door and would not answer questions during this historic vote really does say something,” before assailing the perceived indignity inflicted upon the first black woman to be elevated to the nation’s highest court.

“It really in some ways begs the question is this going to be yet another hurdle, another unusual thing that’s happening to Judge Jackson as she tries to make history,” Alcindor said.

“Now she will make history,” she continued, “this vote will happen, she will be confirmed based on the vote count but it is in some ways, an unsettling… it’s an unsettling development.”

“In some ways, it reminds me of the conversations I’ve been having with black women who say that they’ve had to navigate all sorts of hurdles, all sorts of..,” she added, “they say… indignities, um, in order to achieve what they want, in order to achieve the things that they’ve earned and that they deserve so here is now another moment where Washington is sort of scratching its head wondering what in the world is going on,” inadvertently admitting that there is a huge disconnect between those inside the D.C. Beltway and real Americans.

Twitter users reacted to Alcindor’s racial blathering and innuendo about Rand Paul.

Justice Brown Jackson was confirmed 53-47 with Rand Paul and every other Republican not named Romney, Collins and Murkowski giving the Biden’s questionable nominee a thumbs down.
