And Biden has come up with a unique answer: I’m not going to tell you.
In an interview with a Las Vegas reporter Friday, the former vice president said: “This is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days.”
“Well, sir, don’t the voters deserve to know?” KTNV reporter Ross DiMattei asked.
“No, they don’t,” Biden answered, then said about President Trump, “I’m not gonna play his game, he’d love me to talk about. And I’ve already said something on court-packing, he’d love that to be the discussion instead of what he’s doing now.”
What Trump is “doing now” is filling a Supreme Court seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And for the record, it’s exactly what Democrats would be doing if they held the White House and controlled the Senate.
Upon the expected confirmation of Trump’s nominee Amy Coney Barrett, the court’s balance will shift to 6-3 in the number of justices appointed by Republican versus Democratic presidents. Angry Democrats have floated the idea of “packing the court,” meaning if they take control of the Senate and the White House, they’ll simply add more justices to America’s highest court.
