(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The mainstream media hacks at Good Morning America made an embarrassing gaffe, claiming that new Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson is the first black member of the high court.
“Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first Black Supreme Court justice in U.S. history,” Good Morning America wrote in a now deleted Tweet, reported Fox News.
Of course the first black to ever take up a seat on the Supreme Court was Justice Thurgood Marshall, who joined the court in 1967 and remained until 1993.
Though if that was not obvious to those at GMA, they could have simply looked to the court as it is today and noticed that there is another black Justice: Clarence Thomas.
GMA was grilled on Twitter for the elementary mistake.
They didn’t vote for Biden, so they “ain’t black” in Democrat/media world view

“They didn’t vote for Biden, so they ‘ain’t black’ in Democrat/media world view,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ spokesperson Christina Pushaw wrote.
Eventually GMA realized its mistake, deleted the Tweet, and issued a correction.

“CORRECTION: Video shows Ketanji Brown Jackson sworn in as the first Black female Supreme Court justice in U.S. history. A previous tweet erroneously stated Jackson is the first Black Supreme Court justice,” GMA wrote.
