(ThePatriotSource.com)- During a back-and-forth with a local news reporter on Friday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that voters don’t deserve to know his opinion on packing the courts. It comes as Joe Biden and vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris face increased scrutiny over what is understood to be their plan to pack the Supreme Court to get their own way.
A reporter asked Joe Biden the question that he had refused to answer during the first presidential debate, and which Harris also refused to answer in the vice-presidential debate.
“Sir, I’ve got to ask you about packing the courts and 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 asking about from viewers in the past couple of days,” the reporter said.
At this point, Biden sneered at Republican voters he should be attempting to win over, saying, “Well, you’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they’re doing to the court right now,” he said.
Biden was referencing the fact that President Donald Trump recently nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as is the president’s duty outlined in the United States Constitution.
“Well sir, don’t the voters deserve to know?” the reporter asked, to which Biden, said, “No, they don’t.”
And there you have it. If you don’t believe it, you can see for yourself.
“Well sir, don’t the voters deserve to know—“
“No, they don’t deserve” to know.
So not only is the Left not answering whether they will pack the courts, their standard-bearer thinks you *don’t deserve* to know whether they will. pic.twitter.com/cEj0dV5p6I

Has any other presidential candidate in history said that the voters don’t deserve to know their opinion on an issue that the voters care about, and which would have a huge impact on the future for the entire country?
Biden specifically told reporters recently that they will know his opinion on packing the court “when the election is over.”
Biden’s refusal to answer the question is likely a result of him knowing that only 34% of the American public supports it. It’s wildly unpopular and radical, and has long been something that Senator Kamala Harris has been supportive of.
Speaking to the New York Times during the primary race, Harris said she was “open” to the discussion on packing the courts.
