And the nominee is… Ketanji Brown Jackson! Apologies for the state of the court you’re inheriting, but que será, será, after all. You know what else is guaranteed besides death and taxes? Opinions on Twitter! Let’s check in on the chirping.

And of course, you knew this was coming.

This nomination is American history, and a dope moment in Black history.

Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr. (the real one), Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Ketanji Brown Jackson, and the children we recount these prayers to.

Looking forward to those dissenting opinions, Your Honor!
