President Biden’s claim that the U.S. Supreme Court is “not a normal court” was scrutinized and attacked on Thursday following a major ruling on affirmative action.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier that day in a 6-3 decision that racial discrimination in college admissions was in violation of the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. The ruling was considered a major blow to affirmative action polices at major universities such as Harvard that sought to create a more “diverse” campus by favoring Black and Hispanic students over Whites and Asian Americans.

President Biden was one of many liberal critics of the decision and gave a press conference on the ruling at the White House. After finishing his remarks and preparing to leave, a reporter questioned whether he felt the Supreme Court was now a “rogue court.”

“This is not a normal court,” Biden responded.
