NBC News’ Pete Williams reports that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be retiring from the bench. As a result, President Joe Biden will have the opportunity to nominate the first justice of his presidency.

Breyer’s announcement of his retirement comes months after speculation whether his decision to step down for the express purpose of letting Biden and Congressional Democrats uphold the ideological balance of the court.

The news media world is reacting to Breyer retiring and the next person Biden should appoint to replace him.

SiriusXM host Joe Madison has already the ideal replacement to replace the outgoing Breyer.

Radio host Erick Erickson states that Biden needs a young judge and that Democrats won’t get too far left.

MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin states that the president has the opportunity to appoint someone that can serve for several decades.

Fox New’s Guy Benson believes that if there’s no ideological shift on the court is at stake, the appointment could be a smooth transition.

Radio host Clay Travis believes Breyer’s retirement is sending a strong signal to the Democrats.

Ben Shapiro believes that Breyer’s departure is a sign of what will come at the midterm elections later this year.

Chip Franklin made it known that he had Justice Breyer retiring before Clarence Thomas.

Liz Wheeler wants Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to think hard when it comes to replacing Supreme Court Justice Breyer.

Keith Olbermann believes that a minority appointment will be blocked, but he ponders who will be stopping that nomination.
