Joe Biden commented on criticism directed at him in response to his previous statement that he would not talk about the potential Democrat strategy to add Supreme Court seats until after the election.
Biden was on his way to board a plane to his next stop on the campaign trail, and stopped briefly to say this to reporters:
“Look, there’s always ... court packing going on right now. It’s going on with the Republicans packing the court now; it’s not constitutional what they’re doing. We should be focused on what’s happening right now… <cough> and the fact is that the only packing going on is this court is being packed now by the Republicans are packing it after the vote has already begun. I’m gonna stay focused on it, so we don’t take our eyes off the ball here,” said the presidential hopeful.
The Republicans have no plans to add to the Supreme Court at this time. They plan to fill a currently vacant Supreme Court seat left by the death of one of its justices.
At no point in the short interview did Biden comment on what the Democratic party may or may not do after election time regarding the issue.
