STUNNING: Biden says voters ‘DON’T’ deserve to know if he’ll pack the SCOTUS
Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden again refused to answer whether he would pack the Supreme Court if elected in November, even when directly asked by a local reporter on the campaign trail.
It was the second time on camera Biden has angrily said he wouldn’t answer the question. This time, however, he said voters don’t deserve to know his answer. Packing the SCOTUS, is a term used to describe Democrats desire to add more justices to the Supreme Court. It’s become a topic of discussion since President Donald Trump announced he was nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The reporter informs Biden that viewers have been asking him for days if the former Vice President is considering packing the highest court in the land. Currently there are nine Supreme Court Justices.
Biden proceeds to tell the reporter: “You’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me to continue to talk about what they’re doing to the court right now?
The reporter then says, “don’t the voters deserve to know?
And Biden sharply responds “No, they don’t” but then a sound similar to the word “deserve” is uttered by Biden and then trails off from the end of his sentence.
“He’d love me to talk about, I’ve already said something, court, court pack” says Biden, not explaining who he is because the reporter was talking about voters so it doesn’t appear to make sense.
“He’d love that to be the discussion instead of what he’s doing now,” said Biden. I’m assuming he was talking about President Donald Trump, even though the reporter never once mentioned the President in this particular question.
