Sharpton: ‘I Was Glad’ Barrett’s Children Came Out For Ceremony ‘Because I Couldn’t Find Too Many Other People Of Color’ In Audience

(Breitbart) – During MSNBC’s coverage of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination on Saturday, MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton stated that the audience for Barrett’s nomination ceremony at the White House “was the least diverse audience” he’s seen for such an announcement and remarked that “I was glad her two kids did come out. Because I couldn’t find too many other people of color in that audience.”

Sharpton said, “It is almost offensive for him [President Donald Trump] to brag about her adopting children from Haiti, which is certainly honorable. He called Haiti an s-hole country. So, he’s sitting there with the height of hypocrisy, in terms of his own rhetoric in the past.”

After listing some of his other problems with the Barrett nomination, Sharpton stated, “So, there’s a lot of reasons for us to be concerned. Not to mention, that that was the least diverse audience I’ve ever seen an announcement like this made [in front of] in my life. I looked around. I was glad her two kids did come out. Because I couldn’t find too many other people of color in that audience.”

Amy Coney Barrett: ‘I Love the United States and I Love the United States Constitution’

Judge Amy Coney Barrett declared that she loves the United States and its Constitution during the Saturday ceremony where President Donald Trump nominated her to serve on the Supreme Court.

Speaking in the Rose Garden, Coney Barrett said that she was “deeply honored” by the confidence that President Trump had placed in her and expressed appreciation for his support and kindness.

“I fully understand that this is a momentous decision for a president, and if the Senate does me the honor of confirming me, I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability,” she said. “I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.”

Republican senators are already lining up for a swift confirmation of Barrett ahead of the Nov. 3 election, as they aim to lock in conservative gains in the federal judiciary before a potential transition of power. Trump, meanwhile, is hoping the nomination will serve to galvanize his supporters as he looks to fend off Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump hailed Barrett as “a woman of remarkable intellect and character,” saying he had studied her record closely before making the pick.

“I looked and I studied, and you are very eminently qualified,” he said as Barrett stood next to him in the Rose Garden.

An ideological heir to the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, Barrett would fill the seat vacated after the Sept. 18 death of liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsberg, in what would be the sharpest ideological swing since Clarence Thomas replaced Justice Thurgood Marshall nearly three decades ago.

  1. Only the stooges of the left would listen to this bone-headed creep of a human. The diminished, black racist should return to Africa if needs to be surrounded by black people … What a useless fool this Sharpton is! … pay your taxes you little lying prick!

  2. What a racist thing to say . I know of no criticism that calls her a racist . There were other blacks in the audience . I saw them. But not to many, like in all democratic venues .

  3. Al, your busy looking for the color of skin and we are looking for the content of their character
    Big difference! Sorry your mind is programed to be so shallow.

  4. Al Sharpton is a jerk, plain and simple who cannot see a person beyond the surface of color. True example of a blind person who has made a living stirring the pot to gather in the loot.

  5. Howdy! This is my first visit to your blog!
    We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new
    initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

  6. YES, you are correct SHARPTON there were not very many of color in attendance, Why they were home resting so the can get ready for their nightly duty of burning, looting and shooting, and complaining about police brutality and their lack of opportunity.

  7. more lies from race baiter, remember how the fake news said no one was coming to see Trump and showed pictires of hours before showing hardly anyone their yet but back when fox news wasnt taking money from the left had pictures of 1000,s of people their ?

  8. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared
    to be on the internet the easiest thing to be mindful of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as other people consider concerns that they plainly do not recognize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole
    thing with no need side-effects , folks could take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
