Joe Biden and his campaign spokespeople have made it clear 6 ways to Sunday that they are not going to answer the question (directly or indirectly) on whether or not he plans on considering court-packing, should he win the presidency and Democrats win control of the Senate in November.
Their continued dodging of the question has led conservatives to conclude that court-packing will indeed be the plan, and that Biden is just trying to ride out the next three weeks with his non-answer in an effort to straddle the fence, so as not to alienate key voting blocs he’ll need to win in November.
But in a new twist on the court-packing issue, Biden campaign co-chair Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) said on CNN’s “OutFront” show Thursday that Biden actually had not been dodging the question. Instead, Richmond claimed, Biden actually had answered the question … by saying “he’s not going to answer the question”:
On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Biden Campaign National Co-Chair Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) stated that 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden “has not dodged the question” on court-packing, “What he has said is he’s not going to answer the question,” and there is a difference between the two. Richmond also stated that “court-packing is when you rush through unqualified judges, 50 judges on the circuit court, and you put not one African-American on the circuit court.”
Richmond said, “He has not dodged the question. What he has said is he’s not going to answer the question, and I think that that is a difference.”
As Richmond went on at length to give the left’s revised (and bogus) definition of court-packing, you can see CNN anchor Erin Burnett become visibly incredulous, with her mouth slightly dropping open, as if she was stunned he’d give such a ridiculous and nonsensical response to her question on the Biden campaign’s position.
Biden official on court packing:
"He has not dodged the question, what he has said is he's not going to answer the question."
This is not complex.

LOL. If that’s not taking campaign spin to a whole new level, I don’t know what is. In fact, it almost sounds like the same kind of wacky answer Biden himself would give.
Perhaps they’re comparing notes? Hmm.
Hope that gave y’all a chuckle. Enjoy your weekend! 😉
