Attorney General Nominee Declines To Answer Question About Gender In Sports

Videos by OutKick

Attorney general nominee Merrick Garland declined to take a stance on whether biological men should be able to compete in women’s sports during Tuesday’s confirmation hearing.

Former Democratic-turned-Republican Sen. John Kennedy posed the question to Garland, and Garland refused to give a firm answer.

“This is a very difficult societal question,” Garland answered.

Kennedy fired back that this was the type of question Garland should be prepared to answer in his new role.

“I know but you’re going to be Attorney General,” Kennedy said.

Garland is a longtime federal judge and former federal prosecutor, and is in line to become America’s top law enforcement official.

A number of sports governing bodies have ruled out biological men competing against women. Still others allow it despite the obvious injury risks, citing “inclusion” and “equality.”

  1. He said, “it’s a difficult question”? What is difficult about that question? Shame on coaches and parents who are willing to allow their females athletes and daughters to compete with these confused dudes who are too physically weak to compete against their own gender.

  2. This guy is a fucking moron. Anyways, I think it’s time for the Republicans to do this. Start refusing to hear the testimony of any of these picks unless theyre African American or Transgender. Protest these hearings. No more whites. No more old white men and women. Demand Pelosi give up her seat to a person of color or Transgender. Make the black liberals defend not selecting blacks. Schumer needs to give up his seat to a Democrat who is a person of color. No more old white people. Pit them against each other. I dont care how crazy left wing the candidate would be. As long as their black or Transgender. Throw their equity bullshit right in their faces. Put them on their heels. I’m telling you it would be a great play. Make Biden defend not picking all blacks and Transgenders for his cabinet and all appointments. Make Cory Booker defend Biden not selecting a black person or transgender for AG. Make Pelosin defend not giving up her seat to a person of color. They wouldn’t know what the fuck to do.
