Sen. Elizabeth Warren speaking about the federal judiciary and President Trump’s judicial appointments at the “We the People 2020” democracy forum in Des Moines, Iowa on January 19, 2020.

Video Transcript

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: I think what’s at the heart of it is who do you ask to be a judge, who do you want on your list to be a judge? I’ll tell you what the answer has been for Donald Trump because I’ve seen this, guys.

Homophobic? That’s in. Racist? That’s in. Uh, Sexist? Oh, yeah, most definitely. And, anti-voter, that’s been a big qualification.

He has named one person after another who, and I don’t mean we have kind of a sense that that’s who those people are. I mean, look at their written records. Look at the activities they’ve already engaged in.

Look at the fights they’ve been in and which side they were on. Our answer has to be that we have the judiciary that truly respects the rule of law and respects every single human being in this country.

That is the job of the judiciary. It is there to protect individual rights. It’s not there to protect corporate rights. It’s not there to protect folks with money. It’s there to protect individual rights.

  1. What is Lieawatha trying to say? In Ruth Bader Ginsburg you have the most radical Supreme court justice ever. RBG doesn’t interpret the constitution she modifies it to suit her needs. With Elena Kagan you have a justice of the Supreme court who was given a lifetime appointment simply because she was the friend of the floppy eared Kenyan. And of course we can’t forget Sonia Sotomayor the PC justice. The numerous lower court judges that were appointed by O’Bugger are also putting spins on the constitution to please their radical base and not those of the general public.?

    Seems like that President Trump is simply trying to level the playing field. Why is it when a Democrat doesn’t agree with you, you are a Rascist, Misogynist and whatever other ist or phobe they can come up with??
