WATCH: Tom Cotton Suggests Brown Jackson Might Have Defended Nazis at Nuremberg

The nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson has frustrated Republicans to no end. When Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett were nominated to the court, Democrats were powerless to stop them. And now the shoe is on the other foot. Brown Jackson even earned to votes of GOP senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins.

When Republicans are upset, they tend to start throwing out claims that their opponents are sympathetic to Nazis. Tom Cotton broke out this routine today when talking about Judge Brown Jackson.

Cotton whined during Tuesday’s hearing:

“Now, it’s true that you shouldn’t judge a lawyer for being willing to take on an unpopular case. But you can certainly learn something about a lawyer from the cases they seek out. Judge Jackson represented four terrorists as a public defender, one of whom she continued to represent in private practice, voluntarily. And she voluntarily filed multiple friend-of-the-court briefs on behalf of terrorists while in private practice.”

The Arkansas senator then dropped his Nazi hammer, continuing, “You know, the last Judge Jackson left the Supreme Court to go Nuremberg and prosecute the case against the Nazis. This Judge Jackson might’ve gone there to defend them.”
