President Trump is calling out Joe Biden for his refusal to address whether he will ‘pack’ the Supreme Court if elected.
Packing the court is the practice of putting more justices on the court so the president in power can then nominate friendly justices and powerfully effect the status quo of future decision for decades. It has widely been panned as an off-limits move.
But now, in feigned shock over Trump efforts to push Amy Coney Barrett through, the Democrats have begun threatening to do just that. Many are calling on Biden to refuse such action as even Ruth Bader Ginsburg condemned it before she passed away.
However, Biden has thus far refused to say he won’t do it. And Trump is driving the point home.
“I think what he said was so disrespectful to the process and to the people,” said Trump on Fox News. “But what that means, really, is that they’re going to do it, because obviously, that means 100 percent that’s what they’re going to do. They’re going to end the filibuster and they’re going to do things that you wouldn’t have thought.”
And Trump is right. Biden can’t say “The American people need to decide” in one breath, then in the next moment move with executive power to expand the power of the court without announcing his intention to do so.
Hypocrisy reigns supreme in camp Biden.
