Brit Hume has taken to Twitter to mock Joe Biden’s unwillingness to publicly take a position on expanding the membership of the U.S. Supreme Court beyond its traditional nine justices. Hume, the Fox News senior political analyst, seems to imply in a tweeted mythical conversation between Biden, and one of his handlers, the Democrat presidential nominee seems to be under the impression that dodging answering the court-packing question will take the controversy out of the news cycle, when just the opposite is the case.

Biden to aide: What should I say about court-packing?

Aide: Either way you answer will hurt you. And it will make headlines. 

Biden: Good advice. I’ll say I won’t answer because my answer will make headlines.

Aide: Wait, what?

Biden has brazenly said that America will learn his opinion about court-packing after Election Day. He has even said that the electorate “doesn’t deserve” to know where he stands on the issue.

At this point, on the basis of common sense, it’s “transparently” obvious, however, that if Biden wins the presidency, his far-left puppet masters will compel him — should Democrats win the U.S. Senate — to add radical judicial activists to the high court as a way to dilute the conservative majority and transform America in ways that they couldn’t achieve through mere legislation.

In a separate tweet, Hume recalled that a court-packing scheme boomeranged on FDR when he tried to appoint additional justices who were more favorable to his New Deal initiatives. The Associated Press apparently now refers to court-packing as de-politicizing the court, which is a form of Orwellian doublespeak.

As Tucker Carlson cogently observed during a recent FNC broadcast, “what’s weird is that Biden isn’t trying to reassure you that he won’t pack the Supreme Court. Most Americans don’t want to destroy an entire branch of government. They know that’s a bad idea. But again, Biden is refusing to reassure them. What does that tell you? It tells you that packing the Supreme Court is the one thing Joe Biden is certain to do if he’s elected.”

Democrats apparently have adopted the mantra that confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the seat previously held by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a form of court-packing, even though there is a legitimate vacancy on the court.

Moreover, the Biden rule, a.k.a. the McConnell rule, that purports to rule out election year confirmations, traditionally only applies when the White House and the Senate are controlled by different parties. Democrats also illogically claim in their messaging that Trump’s nearly 300 lower-court appointments consist of court-packing, even though Trump is merely carrying out his constitutional responsibilities (as any Democrat president would do) to fill vacancies in the federal judiciary.

If Trump is reelected with majorities in at least one legislative chamber, the GOP would be well advised to introduce legislation that would enshrine in law the Supreme Court’s membership at nine. The U.S. Constitution is silent on the matter of the maximum number of justices.

In the meantime, Steve Bullock, the Montana governor now running against Republican incumbent Steve Daines for the Senate, has endorsed court-packing.

Although liberal Twitter seems unbothered bothered by Joe’s stonewalling and is deflecting with separate issues, others don’t appreciate Joe’s non-answer answer. Here is a sample:
