Biden says he'd consider naming Obama to the Supreme Court

2 min read

I’d love to see this for three reasons: 1) I love Barack Obama, and his presence in public life simply makes us better, 2) it would be sweet revenge for the Merrick Garland travesty, and 3) there’s a pretty good chance that, if it happened, Donald Trump would swallow his own tongue.

The Daily Mail:

The former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate made the comment while appearing at a campaign event in Washington, Iowa on Saturday.

An attendee asked if he would nominate Obama to sit on the highest court in the country.

In response, Biden replied: ‘If he’d take it, yes.’

Only one former U.S. president, William Howard Taft, has served on the Supreme Court. Taft was on the bench from 1921-1930.

Hey, maybe the next Democratic president will have several appointments to make, and if we control the Senate we can put anyone on the bench. Garland, Hillary Clinton, maybe even Adam Schiff. Trump’s drawers would look like a giant balloon full of Coke and Mentos if Obama, Hillary, and Schiff all got appointments.

(That’s not the reason to do it, of course; but, man, would that be fun.)

Yo! Pennyfarthing’s Trump-trashing series is now a trilogy! Grab your copy of Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing. And, of course, Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump are still selling like lukewarm-cakes. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” soul-soothers.
