Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said President Joe Biden was “failing” a test of leadership by not standing up to the Democrat party on the issue of packing the U.S. Supreme Court.
“The public has been against packing the court in overwhelming numbers,” Turley said on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom.” “That has never changed. These justices have opposed this. So, the thing that’s driving this is the most extreme elements in our politics. But the real … disturbing aspect of this is not that people were going to try to do this and run on the Supreme Court. It is the absence of leadership from President Biden.”
“This is a test of leadership, and he is failing it,” he continued. “I mean, he has to be able to summon the courage to face the most extreme elements of his party.”
Biden has not said he supports adding four Democrat justices to the court progressives in the party want to do, but he formed a commission to study expanding the court as a first step to possible action.
Then again, when hasn’t his leadership been lacking since becoming president. He is a figurehead at this point, a puppet, nothing more.
