Sonia Sotomayor appeared on “The Colbert Report” Monday night to talk about her new memoir, “My Beloved World,” but she stumbled upon an interesting confession in the process: She claims to be an independent.
“How do you know I’m not?” Justice Sotomayor responded.
“Because Obama appointed you,” the host shot back, gaining laughter from the audience. “That’s the only litmus test I need. I’m not a senator. You can’t walk around me.”
“Surprisingly enough to you, I’m not a Democrat. I’m an independent,” Justice Sotomayor replied.
When asked what was the most conservative belief she held, the justice said she believed in the Constitution.
“Then I believe you’re not a Democrat,” Mr. Colbert quipped.
The justice refused to go into detail about her gun control beliefs, telling the host, “You’ll find out soon enough, when a case comes up.”
