Morning Joe Upset by Trump Nominating Too Many ‘Young’, ‘White’, ‘Male’ Judges

Posted on 02 January 2018

<p>On Tuesday’s <em>Morning Joe</em>, economic analyst Steve Rattner used a series of charts and graphs to deliver a supposedly straight, facts-oriented report about President Trump’s federal judicial nominations to date. However, Rattner, who is also the Chairman and CEO of Willett Advisors LLC, the firm that manages former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s various investments and philanthropic ventures, could not help but devolve into standard left-wing talking points impugning Trump as a racist patriarch looking to deliberately exclude non-whites and women from the bench.</p> <p>Besides whining about the “far less diverse” crop of Trump nominees, Rattner also complained that Trump was deliberately selecting younger judicial candidates as part of some sinister, “very deliberate, calculated strategy to have them serve for a long time” and thereby “remake the federal judiciary.”</p>
