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.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
