“The View” co-host Joy Behar said on Wednesday that Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson reminds her of former President Barack Obama "because he was also perfect."
Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin kicked off the segment with their predictable lamentations about how the horrible Republican senators treated Jackson during her Tuesday confirmation hearing.
"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 stated.
"They have to have a perfect black person to run, otherwise ... the Republicans will not be able to deal with it. 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," she added.
"That’s why they’re asking these dumb questions, so that they can have something to bring back to their constituency when they go home and say, 'well, look, she doesn't believe babies are racist' or whatever the hell they were talking about. Who even knows what they were talking about?" Behar continued, "accidentally" Sen. Ted Cruz's questions about critical race theory and the children’s book, “Antiracist Baby,” which suggests very young children should confess when being racist.
"They need something because it's an embarrassment to the country to vote against a woman of this caliber," Behar concluded.
