“I know you said yesterday you aren’t going to answer the question until after the election, but this is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days,” the interviewer stated. “Well, you’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they are doing to the court right now,” Biden responded. Asked if the voters “deserve” to know his answer, Biden said, “No, they don’t.”
“I’m not going to play [Trump’s] game. He’d love me to talk about — and I’ve already said something on packing the court, court packing,” he added. “He’d love that to be the discussion instead of what he’s doing now. He’s about to make a pick in the middle of an election — first time it’s ever been done, first time in history it’s ever been done,” Biden added falsely.
Earlier in the week, Biden astonishingly said voters would know his position on packing the court after the election. “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” he had said of court packing on Friday.
