U.S. President Joe Biden said the appointment of the first black female, Ketanji Brown Jackson, to the U.S. Supreme Court “is going to let so much shine — sun shine on so many young women, so many young Black women — so many minorities, that it’s real. It’s real.”
“We’re going to look back — nothing to do with me — we’re going to look back and see this as a moment of real change in American history,” he added.
He said, “I’m honored to officially introduce to you the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Ketanji Brown Jackson.”
The President noted that it took more than 20 hours of questioning at her hearing and nearly 100 meetings and every senator who wanted to speak with her she made herself available to address their concerns.
He further said Jackson was “Thoughtful. Careful. Precise. Precise. Brilliant. A brilliant legal mind with deep knowledge of the law. And a judicial temperament — which was equally important, in my view — that’s calm and in command.”
“That brings a rare combination of expertise and qualifications to the Court. A federal judge who has served on the second most powerful court in America behind the Supreme Court. A former federal public defender with the ability to explain complicated issues in the law in ways everybody — all people — can understand. A new perspective,” he added.
