WRONG: Good Morning America Calls Ketanji Brown Jackson The ‘First’ Black Supreme Court Justice

Good Morning America made a stupid mistake this week when Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice.

They called her the ‘first’ black justice.

This ignores not only Justice Clarence Thomas, who is currently sitting on the court, but also Justice Thurgood Marshall, who was the first.

The same title accompanied the video on GMA’s Twitter account, which has 3.7 million followers. In reality, the late Thurgood Marshall was the first black justice and was succeeded by black Justice Clarence Thomas following his retirement.

The liberal media is alsways in such a rush to congratulate their fellow liberals that they trip all over themselves.

It’s just pathetic.
