Biden Insults Trump, Supreme Court

( – At a dinner hosted by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Detroit chapter, Joe Biden asked the audience a question about former President Donald Trump’s potential judicial appointments should he win a second term.

He inquired whether Trump would appoint to the Supreme Court “anybody who has a brain.”

During his speech at the NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner, Biden criticized Trump for his choices of Supreme Court justices, who have played roles in rulings that Biden strongly opposes.

“He brags about getting Roe v Wade overturned,” Biden remarked about Trump.

“He not only denies reproductive freedom, but worsens the mortality rate for Black moms, who are nearly three times more likely to die from pregnancy complications than a white woman,” he added.

Biden further accused Trump of promoting voter suppression and undermining elections, stating, “Trump openly encourages voter suppression and election subversion. He and his MAGA extremists gutted affirmative action.”

In his address, Biden urged attendees to reflect on the potential consequences of Trump’s future Supreme Court nominations and reassured them of his commitment to appointing justices who will uphold justice and mercy.

“Let me ask you, if he’s reelected, who do you think you’ll put on a Supreme Court? Do you think he’ll put anybody who has a brain?” he questioned the crowd.

Furthermore, Biden also campaigned for re-election alongside Kamala Harris and the support for a Democratic Congress, which promised to champion key legislative goals for the NAACP.

“Reelect Kamala and me and a Democratic Congress and we will help the NAACP. We will sign the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, the Freedom to Vote Act and make Roe v Wade the law of the land again,” he pledged.

These ambitions hinge on overcoming significant legislative hurdles, especially with a divided Congress, where reaching the necessary majority to secure voting and reproductive rights is particularly challenging.

Trump’s tenure was marked by his appointment of three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, a move widely acknowledged by both supporters and critics as having a profound impact on major legal decisions, including the reversal of Roe v. Wade, which had established a federal right to an abortion.
