WATCH: Yamiche Alcindor Blasts Josh Hawley Over his Behavior During Brown-Jackson Hearing

During Donald Trump’s presidency, Republicans were willing to do whatever it took to push his Supreme Court nominees through. And now that Joe Biden is president, those same Republicans are determined to harm his nominee, Ketanji Brown-Jackson.

Lawmakers had the opportunity to ask the judge questions yesterday. Marsha Blackburn’s line of questioning was particularly embarrassing. But no one did more grandstanding than Josh Hawley. During a Monday segment of MSNBC, Yamiche Alcindor called the Missouri senator out for his behavior.

The NBC reporter told host Alex Wagner, “Critics would say there’s some attention-getting there, that someone who wants to be president wants to get our attention. Republicans also understand they are dealing with a history-making candidate and also someone who actually has most of the votes that she needs to get through the court and to be able to get seated on the Supreme Court.”

Noting that many of the GOP lawmakers don’t have the skill to argue with Jackson, Alcindor continued, “This is not what this is about. This is about political questions, [another judge] said, and that’s why some folks see it as just sort of a theater where senators are going to come and try to make commercials essentially out of their questioning. That has been something that Republicans and Democrats, though, have been criticized of doing, I should say.”
