Establishment Press Ignoring Schumer’s Race-Based Objection to Trump Judicial Nominee

<p>Wednesday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opposed the nomination of A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. as a South Carolina federal district judge. The nominee was confirmed by a 69-28 vote. Schumer’s objection, cloaked as complaining about “the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s (judicial) selections”: Quattlebaum is white. Any senator opposing a non-white nominee based on skin color would have received saturation media coverage within minutes, but the establishment press is virtually ignoring Schumer’s remarks.</p>
