QUOTE OF THE DAY: 11-Year-Old Girl Asks Biden Why She Doesn’t Meet His SCOTUS Standards

Maddi Morgan, an 11-year-old Washington, D.C. resident, wrote a letter to President Joe Biden arguing that as a “black woman” she meets his standards to serve on the Supreme Court.

THE QUOTE

“There aren’t really many requirements to be a part of the Supreme Court. You just have to be appointed by the president. So, I thought, why not? And I just shot my shot,” Morgan wrote to Biden, per CBS News.

Morgan noted that Biden has pledged to appoint a black woman to fill the seat being vacated by Justice Anthony Breyer, and said, “Well THAT’S ME!”

  • “Children don’t have a voice in this country. Give them a small one,” she also said.

“While it’s clear that Maddi is very bright, gifted at making a case, and will go on to do great things, I cannot comment on the Supreme Court vetting process,” commented White House spokesman Andrew Bates.
