Tucker calls out Biden’s ‘provable’ race-based hiring of judges – only 5 out of 97 are white men

No presidential administration in the nation’s history appears to have been more openly obsessed with race than the Biden regime and that is especially the case when it comes to the nation’s courts where identity has been prioritized over constitutional knowledge and mastery of jurisprudence.

Tucker Carlson addressed the proverbial elephant in the living room of President Joe Biden’s brazen discrimination against white males in his judicial appointments, suggesting that diversity is merely another word for racism, using numbers to back it up.

On Monday’s edition of his popular Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host expressed the now-controversial viewpoint that hiring should be based on merit rather than race.

“So the point of diversity, equity and inclusion as you’ve often heard is to wind up at the leadership class that ‘looks like America,'” he began. “Now we think you should hire on the basis of merit, but that’s kind of an appealing idea, the people who run the country should look like the country.”

“That’s not what it’s about at all, because no administration has ever looked less like America just by the numbers than the Biden Administration,” he said. “It’s not about making the administration look like America, it’s about discriminating against certain classes of people who don’t vote for them. Period.”

“And now it’s provable,” Carlson continued. “Jeremy Carl with the Claremont Institute just ran the numbers, and this is in the judiciary. He found that out of 97 federal judges confirmed under Joe Biden, total number of white men, five!”

“Twenty-two are black women. So this is race-based hiring. It’s illegal, but it’s also not about looking like America, it’s about punishing people,” he added. “It’s also incidentally producing nominees for federal judgeships who know nothing about the Constitution, like this person.”

Carlson then played a clip of one of Biden’s prized judicial nominees, Charnelle Bjelkengren whose shocking lack of familiarity with the U.S. Constitution was laid bare during a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

While Bjelkengren’s jaw-dropping ignorance of the document that serves as the foundation of the entire American legal system would in normal times be disqualifying, her key qualification of being the first black woman to be confirmed to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington seems to be the only thing that matters to Biden and his team.

“She doesn’t know what’s in the Constitution, but she’s going to be a federal judge whose job it is to interpret the law against the Constitution,” said Carlson with a cynical chuckle. “Ok. So degrading.”

The numbers that Carlson was referring to were crunched by Jeremy Carl, a senior fellow at the conservative Claremont Institute, an organization with a stated mission of restoring “the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life.”

In a series of tweets, Carl made a compelling case that Biden’s race-based judicial appointments are not only discriminatory against white males, but also result in “manifestly unqualified judges” being given lifetime appointments.


Carl also pointed out the lack of diversity in Biden’s cabinet, sadly predictable from a man who when making his very important choice of a running mate, immediately ruled out anyone other than a woman of color.

Carlson then brought on his guest, Horace Cooper of the National Center for Public Policy Research to further discuss Biden’s flagrant discrimination when it comes to judicial nominees, capping off the segment with a perfect summation.

“So really at the core, no one says it but it is true, at the core of the Democratic program is race hatred, obviously,” Carlson said. “The party of Jim Crow is still at it, they never really changed, it is called equity now.”

Despite the left’s insistence to the contrary, diversity is NOT our strength.
