Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot showed her support for Ketanji Brown Jackson yesterday with a post on Twitter, memes ensued

Chicago Mayor, Lori E Lightfoot celebrated Ketanji Brown Jackson's confirmation to the US Supreme Court yesterday with this released statement

"It's a historic day in America. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is now confirmed as the first Black woman to be on the Supreme Court. Judge Jackson's impressive and extensive legal experience simply speaks for itself. Throughout the Senate Judiciary process, she demonstrated the kind of intellect, empathy, and mettle that Americans deserve from a judge with a lifetime appointment to our nation's highest court. As a Black female lawyer myself, I am beaming with pride and add my voice to the chorus of well-wishers who are congratulating Judge Jackson on making history today. She may be the first, but she will certainly not be the last. She will continue to inspire many others who look like her to follow in her footsteps." 

Lightfoot also posted a photo of her on a bench, New York Times in hand with the headline that read, "Jackson confirmed to Supreme Court as supporters hail historic moment".

Memers of twitter couldn't help themselves and started posting replies to Mayor Lightfoot's post, below.
