The mainstream media asks a lot of stupid questions, but Pablo Manriquez of Latino Rebels was the one to ask Sen. Mitch McConnell how many black women he had on staff to help inform his decision about President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee. We’re not familiar with Latino Rebels, but Forbes thought the question was worth highlighting on its feed.
Question: "How many Black women do you have on staff and how are they informing your decision to move forward with the SCOTUS nomination."
McConnell: "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." pic.twitter.com/z6e0Cowjkc

As usual, McConnell nails it.
How it should be.

There is a whole lot of activism in the Capitol Hill press corp.
This is even worse than the reporter who accused Manchin of preventing people from voting (which was a lie). https://t.co/ccxJ2K7Vxh

Tallying up your black employees sounds a bit racist to me.. something Biden would probably do to make sure he doesn’t end up with a “racial jungle” on his hands. pic.twitter.com/cxpiP0FbWL

For liberals who can’t bother to watch, he goes on to say he’s has many black men and women working for him over the years including a speechwriter. The only people focused on race…are RACISTS.

What a racist question to ask. 🥴

IMO "Actually, I haven't checked. We don't have a racial quota in my office," would have been a perfectly sufficient response.

It’s true, he didn’t need to say anything after “but.”
