Late night hosts discuss Biden's Black female SCOTUS choice and other things upsetting Fox News

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer officially announced his retirement on Thursday, and President Biden recommitted to nominating a Black woman, "because he cares deeply about representation — and winning Georgia," Trevor Noah said on Thursday's Daily Show. Fox News seems pretty upset about Biden's candidate pool.

"Being a Black woman isn't the qualification," Noah said. "Joe Biden is going to pick a Black woman who is also qualified," and "why is that a bad thing? Why not try to make the Supreme Court a little more representative of the country it represents? ... It would be nice to have at least one justice on there who's had to ask the Walgreens guy to unlock the shampoo shelf."
