Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Chris Wallace on Court Packing: A 'Bone-Headed Idea' That 'Isn't Going to Happen'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

As progressive Democrats continue to support the push to pack the Supreme Court, Fox News’ Chris Wallace slammed it as a “bone-headed idea,” predicting that it “isn’t going to happen.”

Wallace began by calling the push to pack the court as a “political play,” adding, “I don’t think there is a chance in the world that the court is going to be expanded from nine members.”

He then invoked President Joe Biden’s previous take on court-packing in 1983, calling the move “a bone-headed idea,” and predicting that if Democrats do add four justices to the current nine, the GOP will simply add two more once they’re eventually back in control.

“And you end up with 75 Supreme Court Justices and it loses any credibility,” he said, adding that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has no intention to bring the bill to the floor, while Biden also hasn’t openly supported court-packing, despite the fact that he appointed a commission to address the matter.

“So this isn’t going to happen. It just isn’t going to happen,” Wallace said. “I will — mark this tape. If by 2022 they increase the size of the court I will come back here and eat my hat.”
