TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It is possible we've all marinated for so long in a casual racism of affirmative action that it seems normal now to reduce human beings to their race. But imagine if this was happening to you. How would you feel? 

You go to law school, you win a clerkship, you get a seat on some lower courts. One day, you're nominated to be one of the top nine judges in the country, and you are proud of that. Why wouldn't you be? Your parents are proud. Your friends are proud.

But Joe Biden? All Joe Biden can talk about is your skin color. Patronizing? That doesn't even begin to describe what this is.  This is exactly why decent Americans hated segregation. It dehumanized people.

Now, Biden claims that his race counting is essential so that the court and the rest of his administration, quote, “looks like America." Of all the lies that Joe Biden tells, this could be the easiest to check. We have the latest census numbers and we can promise you with dead certainty that Joe Biden's nominees look nothing like America, not even close.

Is that a problem? Well, the problem for Biden is that once you start saying things like this, once he begins to promise to represent every possible ethnic voting bloc equally, like some ward boss in 1950's Chicago, people are going to start to wonder about their quote, “representation."

As long as we are giving up the spoils like carrot cake, where's my slice?
