  1. Great response, this is exactely what Joe should do! Evidence based measures!

    • mad-baby IMPOTUS | October 22, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

      @Karl Foster

      Biden can see his shoelaces. 😁 Unlike the bloated-potus

    • @George Kerby Meanwhile, Trump is found to have an undisclose bank account with China, and his daughter was granted numerous trademarks in the midst of a trade war with China. Wake up! No one has to move to China. And name-calling is unnecessary when all one has to do is vote.

    • @Karl Foster I am pretty sure he can tie his shoelaces. Just compare the physical condition of Trump and Biden. But even if he couldn’t it doesn’t matter. You can allways ask somebody else to help you with it. And then you can go ahead and work with your team on improvements of the courtsystem.

    • @George Kerby Fixing obvious problems with the courtsystem, has nothing to do with communism.

  2. Term limits on SCOTUS. Long Loooong overdue.

    • @EATSHITYOUTUBE EATSHITTRUMP I agree, no life term appointments. Also cool name! 😷

    • @Vijayakumar T C I don’t agree with an age limit…but a “time” limit seems more than reasonable. If “age” is used, then we will have to endure people who are not “well rounded” (aka, see present nominee) to the Court. With a 20 or 25 year “term”, we will see judges with more experience–in both law and life. I think that would be a good thing. Appointments for life…ridiculous.

    • Vaughn Besley Because then it becomes overtly a political office. Furthermore, imagine the frequency changes to rulings. Supreme court is meant to be a stable body.

    • I agree. They have too much power and no accountability. Either term limits or expansion.

    • Winston Elston | October 22, 2020 at 7:46 PM | Reply

      Term to end at the end of the seventeenth session after the justice’s confirmation.

  3. Donald Trump is more Dangerous than Covid 19
    👉VOTE HIM OUT!!!

    Wow, Biden speaks clearly and intelligently. No comparison with the current occupant of the WH.

      @Adam Mcgrath I won’t hold my breath.

    • stephen bouchelle | October 22, 2020 at 4:27 PM | Reply

      @Ash M unlikely. He is a seasoned politician and can speak off the cuff reasonably well. He’s not a Clinton or Obama caliber speaker, but he is light years ahead of Trump in this regard.

    • @John D First of all, I am Canadian. Second, I am a conservative voter for almost 50 years. Third, you do your own research. Just Google “Barr dropped Obamagate”, 306,000 sites for your perusal.

    • The Intercept : Biden Whistleblower Emails: Chinese Energy Company Gave $5 Million Non-Secured, Forgivable Loan to Biden ‘Family’

      A 2017 email from a top official with a Chinese energy firm, provided by a whistleblower to U.S. Senate investigators, demonstrates the terms of an agreement included officials with the firm giving a $5 million non-secured, forgivable loan to the Biden “family.”

      The email, sent to SinoHawk Holdings CEO Tony Bobulinski, shows how a top official with CEFC Energy — a now bankrupt and defunct energy company based in China — offered to wire $10 million into an account to begin operations, $5 million worth of which would be a non-secured forgivable loan to the “BD Family,” which means the Biden family.//////////////////////////////////.//////

  5. More projection and hipocrisy from the Republicans. Accusing Joe Biden of court-packing WHILE the Republicans are packing the court RIGHT NOW. Disgusting. 🤢

  6. Supreme Court should NOT be political. Trump and Mitch McConnell have soiled it

    • If the Republicans were saying they were going to ADD SEATS to fill them when Trump was reelected,
      The Democrats would be crying Treason and Impeachment

      @Winston Shore sad but true! BurismaHunter is dirty!💩👎🇨🇳

    • Ya. Your BLM hooligans aren’t radical at all

    • @Joseph Mason So are you a Upper??? Ya. BLM…were people have the “radical” idea that the color of your skin shouldn’t be a death sentence if your meet up with law enforcement. And that law “enforcement” isn’t judge, jury and executioner. RADICAL…Ya.

    TRUMP WILL NOT SILENCE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND HE WILL NOT SUPPRESS OUR VOTE! SHOW UP IN WAVES BLUE!!! BRING YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS…VOTE VOTE VOTE. AMERICA IS DEPENDING ON YOU! I VOTED #BIDENHARRIS2020 #SAVEAMERICA🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊💙💙💙💙💙💙

    • Trump is the first president since 1897 to not have a dog! This might explain why:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg3ntXL99vk

    • Biden needs three days off before a debate so he can memorize and put together sentences to hide his advanced dimentia. how many days of prep he needs to meet Xi?

    • President Biden got three votes from our lifelong registered Republican household! We all voted straight Democrat this time! In Florida you MUST be a registered Republican or your vote will get thrown out! We had absentee ballots but turned them in so we could vote in person, we DON’T TRUST FLORIDA ELECTIONS! This very corrupt state run by Disney and the Republicans have guaranteed to give this state to Trump ! I hope they haven’t found a way to tamper with in person voting!
      DUMP TRUMP, and all Republicans
      VOTE TRUE BLUE, all the way 💙
      We MUST get corruption out of Florida politics!

    • @Ross Piyan oops, you meant trump
      Trump is the one that can’t form sentences. Trump’s the one that owes China money. Trump, not Biden. Nice try

    • @Ross Piyan i don’t see biden that way at all. He gives intelligent, detailed, logical and contextual answers, unlike drumpf who has never made sense, rambles around, lies, repeats himself ad nauseum, cracks stupid jokes, and misspeaks a lot. I had enough the first time that creepy hustler drumpf spoke on the tele decades ago.

  9. This would be the biggest win. The house, the senate, the presidency the SCOTUS. They have to do it, have to period.

    • Jean Montambeault | October 22, 2020 at 12:56 PM | Reply

      If they throw the pendulum straight to the left they will have started to lose and the next election and betrayed the country. We need stability, fairness and sense.

    • @Jean Montambeault 2 judges leave a GOP majority, but Roberts becomes swing vote. It ain’t good but…

    • @Michael Jordan Don’t bother pal. It’s over. Have a barbecue, hold a party, go boating, your vote means nothing. Trump down 12 in Wisconsin, and 10 in Pennsylvania. Those doors are closed. He is down 4 in Florida as of today. It’s over. Early call 830 or so Election night, no challenge, no court, they can’t even steal the election it’ll be that much of a Tsunami.

    • @justdynee I live in GA. I voted early last Fri, Blue across the board of course. GA is close in the polls right now. Hope we can flip it (fingers crossed). I wanna see Trump humiliated. 😁

  10. Biden presents a sound idea and I’m really glad he’s come out and said something on this.

    • Every President has chosen for Supreme Court as seats are needed to be filled.
      Trump isn’t doing anything different from any other president.
      It isn’t packing the court to fill a Vacant space that comes up.

      It is Packing the Court to ADD seats that have Never Existed.

      The Democrats are acting like Spolied Children throwing tantrums because it isn’t their party’s turn to chose.

      To CHANGE
      The NUMBER of SEATS in the Supreme Court,
      just because they didn’t get to chose during Trump’s time,
      is called Packing the Court.
      And a complete disregard for democracy.

      Wait your turn, just like we tell our children!

  11. The Republicans are packing the courts, so why badger Democrats about packing the courts.

    • BECUZ N ORANGE POTUS 🐷 PERVERT’S ADMINISTRATION…… DON’T DO WHAT I DO, DO WHAT I ACCUSE INNOCENT PEOPLE 🇺🇸🗽🕊️🙏 OF DOING

    • @Jeff Rosene yeah REMEMBER THAT ORANGE BRAIN-DEAD MAGAT TROLL 💀……. ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES…. LMAO MAGATS 😈

    • @Vicki D If that is you expecting Biden to win, think again. Even if by miracle Biden does win, he won’t be President for long. 25th amendment or impeachment will happen, leaving Harris and most likely her Vice President Nancy Pelosi. However Trump will win.

    Will they impeach Brett “I Like Beer” Kavanaugh for lying to Congress?

  13. 12-20 year limit on the supreme court justices. Something this powerful should never be given a life time position.

    • I’m not positive but I think when this was put into place people didn’t live as long or as healthy in thier twilight years….alot has changed medically

    • “The Washingtonian” : “Democrats Have a Better Option to Save Our Supreme Court”
      (..great article, btw).

      The basic principle is that every president nominates 2 new justices, and limits the tenure of all SCOTUS nominees to 14 years.

      From 1789 to 1970, the average tenure of our Supreme Court Justices was 15 years; Since then, that tenure has skyrocketed to almost 26 years.

    • Winston Elston | October 22, 2020 at 8:04 PM | Reply

      @Near Yetfar So my suggestion of 17 session term limits is pretty much on target. It does not resonate with Senate or presidential terms.
      The Constitution of the USA should be amended to regularize (eventually) a thirteen-justice SCOTUS, too big to rig.

  14. Trump says mail-in ballots are crooked that backfired on them because now there are millions and millions of walking in to vote

    • @Richie Rich Hunter is not running for president and when truck loses look at the s*** that’s going to come out on him go back Hunter look like the Pope

    • Grouper Gary – that’s BS, Dude, you’re been scammed. Harris had the dirt on Biden, she was connected with him, this is why she is the VP. Watch the debate, Hunter’s x partner will be in the audience as Trump’s guest. 4th of July came early.

    • Kepler Mission | October 22, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      @Richie Rich No. Joe Biden, is working-class. Richard Nixon was poor but related to the founder of Cornell University and other elite people. I mean, it’s not about the noises made at a debate. Working-class people aren’t cut-out for high office, it’s about breeding. People in New York’s Gold Coast were spoiled by … you know … working-class house builders trying to impress their tastes. Now a working-class Joe Six-Pack like Biden, nobody is going to try to impress him.

    • Paul Wiley – naaa, Trump will go in the History books as best president that took down the Dems

    • Kepler Mission – No, Joe is a crook, who used his VP position to get him and his family millions by selling his office.

  15. Wherever Trump accused others of doing he is the one actually doing like packing the courts at his most convenient and to the right extremist.

  16. I’d like to know how Amy can even accept the nomination for supreme Court in all good conscience. She can’t answer debatable questions but she can be the center of the debate. She knows it’s not right

  17. The court should not be left/right leaning it should be de-politicized. Otherwise the judiciary is just part of elections.

    • Absolutely!

    • It has been left lean for a great long time.

      Every President has chosen for Supreme Court as seats are needed to be filled.
      Trump isn’t doing anything different from any other president.

      The Democrats are acting like Spolied Children throwing tantrums because it isn’t their party’s turn to chose.

      To change the Supreme Court,
      just because they didn’t get to chose during Trump’s time, is called Packing the Court.
      And a complete disregard for democracy.

      Wait your turn, just like we tell our children!

  18. Competency and leadership, how refreshing.

  19. Our courts and judges should be practicing the law, not the will of a political party.

  20. Republicans’ idea of COVID relief is to relieve you of your healthcare during COVID.
