Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked by a member of the media how many black women work for him, presumably in the context of President Biden vowing to elect a black woman to the Supreme Court. The answer McConnell gave was rather strange. The Republican Senate Leader either couldn’t hear or pretended not to be able to hear the question twice and asked the reporter to pull his mask down.
McConnell then responded after the third time, “actually, I haven’t checked. We don’t have a racial quota in my office. But I’ve had a number of African American employees, both male, and female, over the years in all kinds of different positions including speechwriter.” It was obvious from his tone that McConnell was unaware if he had any black women on staff but also that he believed the question to be a racist one. Of course, it’s not racist to ask this question or to know the answer to it, but McConnell has an expressed interest in making it seem like it is a way to attack Joe Biden and his Supreme Court promise.
