Joy Behar Gives Up Game: “Ketanji reminded me of Obama because he was also perfect
Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s daytime talk show “The View,” gave up the game when she fawned over Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson today. She actually compared Biden’s SCOTUS pick to former President Barack Obama because they are both “perfect.”
Joy said: “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. 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. 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.

“It’s an embarrassment to the country to vote against a woman of this caliber.”
Guest co-host Lindsey Granger disagreed saying, “I think, that said, even if she is perfect, we need to ask hardball, pressing questions.”
Sunny Hostin said she cried watching day one of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearing because “my daughter will now see this,” before adding that “it’s unfortunate that Republicans are taking this opportunity to air grievances.”
From The New York Post:
Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson once again faced questions from Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday about her sentencing of child pornography offenders after undergoing 13 hours of interrogation the previous day.
After Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), had led the charge in asking Jackson the day before about penalties which he and other GOP members deemed too lenient, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) described child porn as “an epidemic of the internet” and asked Jackson if she viewed her role as deterring people “from going down that road”.
“Senator, this crime is among the most difficult…” Jackson began.
“Answer my question,” Graham interrupted. “Would you want to deter people from going down the road of using the computer that allows these people to have access to millions of photos because of the technology?
I want those people – if you’re listening to my voice today and you’re on a computer looking at child pornography and you get caught, I hope you’re in – your sentences are enhanced because the computer and the internet is feeding the beast.”
“Senator, with respect to the computer, one of the most effective deterrents is one that I imposed in every case – and that judges across the country impose in every case – which is substantial, substantial supervision…” Jackson said.
