Scarborough: GOP Blew Their Shot to Show They Aren’t ‘anti-Black party’ During KBJ Hearings [VIDEO]

This week, GOP lawmakers have had the opportunity to ask questions of Ketanji Brown Jackson. They haven’t really asked too my questions. Instead, senators like Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley have made grandstanding, grievance-filled speeches aimed at the Fox News audience.

During a Thursday morning segment, Joe Scarborough slammed Republicans for blowing their shot to prove they’re not an anti-Black party.

Guest Tom McMahon told the host:

“You have these despicable Republicans up there who are basically running a primary campaign for the next presidential election who are race-baiting and doing everything [Rev. Al Sharpton] just described in an effort to pander to their base, but what they’re actually doing, I think, is further branding the Republican Party as an anti-minority party and an anti-Black party, which, frankly, I don’t understand the, you know, politics is about growing your vote, growing your vote share. I don’t see what the strategy is here for Republicans because they’re not going to stop her. and they’re only going to further cause problems with their brand.”

Scarborough responded, “It really is shocking to me that Republicans wouldn’t use this opportunity to soften some of their harder edges. Times have changed, [but] not really if you’re a United States senator. You still have to run statewide, and this week has been such a missed opportunity by so many Republicans.”
