Biden Explains Why He Won’t Answer The Court-Packing Question

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

You guys, I don’t know how else to say this.

Joe Biden is batsh*t, the entire mainstream media that’s tolerating what you’re about to see is batsh*t, and anyone who watches this and thinks, “Yeah – that sounds reasonable” is batsh*t.

Biden was asked whether or not he plans to pack the courts if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to the Supreme Court, and this was how he answered evaded the question.

OMG.

So, let’s just unpack and untangle this, y’all. The reason Biden is giving for not answering this question is that if he DOES answer it, the PRESS WILL TALK ABOUT IT.

Seriously? That’s the reason? Any answer that any candidate for president gives to any question when there’s fewer than 30 days until the election is going to be talked about by the press. That is the dumbest reason in the history of reasons, and no one should take it seriously. Biden should be mocked mercilessly for offering up such a dumbass excuse for not answering a question about HIS OPINION of one of the most consequential decisions a president could ever make.

Even if you’re a progressive, you should be appalled that your candidate refuses to divulge his position on something so important until after he is elected. WTF. So this is the newest version of, “You have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.” This is outrageous on every level.

But let’s all just be real about what’s really happening here. If the answer to the question was “No” – then he’d simply say it. OF COURSE he’ll pack the courts. OF COURSE he doesn’t want to own that answer. So he’s skipping out on it, just like he’ll skip out on the American people, voluntarily or by coercion, so that we’re all under the rule of President Kamala Harris, who will plunge our country into depths of misery we can barely imagine right now.

Vote Red. Vote for transparency. Because this is your last chance to ever get it.
