An interesting and awkward moment in Tuesday’s presidential debate was when former Vice President Joe Biden literally refused to answer a question that he was given. The question was whether or not he was planning to support increasing the size of the Supreme Court or ending the filibuster if Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed.
He refused to answer stating that “Whatever position I take on that, that will become the issue.”
Moderator Chris Wallace pointed out that there were calls to increase the size of the court or end the filibuster if Judge Barrett is confirmed and added:
“You call this a distraction by the president. But, in fact, it wasn’t brought up by the president. It was brought up by some of your Democratic colleagues in the Congress. So, my question to you is, you have refused in the past to talk about it, are you willing to tell the American people tonight whether or not you will support either ending the filibuster or packing the court?”
Biden’s exact response was:
“Whatever position I take on that, that will become the issue. The issue is, the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You’re in — voting now. Vote and let your senators know how strongly you feel.”
President Trump responded with telling those in attendace that Biden didn’t want to answer the question, to which Biden replied “I’m not going to answer the question.”
This is what Biden sounds like: You need to vote for me to do what I refuse to say I am going to do. You know, the THING.
Am I right?
How does a man that is running for the title of being the President of the United States of America respond with “I’m not going to answer the question” during a presidential debate!?
One can’t help but think that it’s because he knows the truth would destroy him. Or perhaps his handlers didn’t give him the answer? By his standards we will not know Biden’s “plans” until he’s voted for!?
The whole point of the debate is to learn what the candidates plan to do. Biden refusing to answer on his supreme court picks, the fillibuster and court packing is a Pelosi move. ‘You will have to vote for me to find out where I stand’
Or was that Maxine waters? I get the two mixed up.
Things are turning out to be very suspicious as is Biden’s behavior. Just prior to the debate, Joe Biden’s team had outright declined the Trump campaign’s request to have ears of both candidates inspected for listening devices. The real kicker is previously Biden’s team had literally AGREED to the inspection.
Now their tune has changed, and it’s hard not to be suspicious considering the circumstances.
It’s reported that ahead of the first head-to-head debate, Trump’s team requested that a third party check both candidates’ ears to confirm that there are no listening devices.
This response is a far cry from the Biden campaigns original response when they reportedly agreed to a pre-debate inspection just days ago:
