'I don't mean to be coy': Trump judicial nominee refuses to say whether she supports segregation



The nominee is the wife of former U.S. Senator David Vitter. -- Don

A federal judicial nominee on Wednesday refused to say whether she agrees with the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision that ruled “separate but equal” schools are unconstitutional when grilled during her Senate confirmation hearing.

“Do you believe that Brown v. Board of Education was correctly decided?” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) asked Trump judicial nominee Wendy Vitter.

“Senator, I don’t mean to be coy,” Vitter responded, “but I think I get into a difficult area when I start commenting on Supreme Court decisions, which are correctly decided and which I may disagree with.”

“My personal, political or religious views I would set aside,” she continued, saying that if she were confirmed she would uphold the “binding” decision.

3. Un-fucking-believable.

It's as though we've regressed a full one hundred years.

I bet she wouldn't be so coy about Plessy v. Fergusson.

4. That guarantees her getting GOP votes. This is what the real agenda is besides taxes.

6. Bullshet!!!! she is just like her Husband.

Vitter was 100% behind anything the Racist Tea Party Promoted.... I remember his "promoting fear about ACA" and wrote comments on any article in local papers that address him and his position... the comments ended up "deleted".

I stopped writing on the Paper's website when they changed and required one to have to use a Facebook Log In to write commentary. They deleted the entire comment script and all the comments, when they changed over to require a facebook log in.

Before that, the local politicians and the Mayor at the time, followed my comments, I know this because they told me...

I make it my personal citizen business to know the local politicians...

9. That tells me everything I need to know about her.

Well, being married to Vitter did that already. She's simply confirming it.

11. "In a field of terrible judicial nominees, Wendy Vitter is exceptionally unfit" - The Hill

This is a damning read, a scathing rebuke of this woman, a rabid anti-abortion zealot, and her crazy views.

12. Her ass needs to be out the door faster than she can spin around.

These goddamn dregs of society have no business being anywhere near government positions. Has there been a single person proposed, qualified for the position? Cabinet members, I guess there's been a few- Kelly, McMaster and I'm sure one other that's escaping my memory. However, all the rest have been absolute crap.

21. Kelly, that racist liar? He still hasn't apologized to Rep. Wilson. And don't forget his...

negligence in the Rob Porter scandal.

13. I think that she thinks that she's being cleverly vague....

...she thinks she's side-stepping a 'gotcha' question.

The truth is, she has no idea what the 'Brown vs Board of Education' case is. She's too ignorant to know that her answer exposes her ignorance.

17. What it really comes down to, in plain & simple English

Is that she doesn't believe that people of African descent are human.

18. Isnt it acceptable to discuss in general terms...

A long standing law? Precedence? Wouldn’t not being willing to do so constitute the thought that the person doesn’t think it’s settled. I get why they often won’t get into certain things. This doesn’t seem to be one of them.

24. Disgusting.

Don't mean to be coy????

WTF?

On Brown vs Topeka Board of Education?

So...this lady implies she wants segregated schools again. Sounds like I need to make a call to my Senators. Unless she's already been confirmed.
