Today, some House and Senate Democrats held an event outside the Supreme Court building outlining legislation that would expand the size of SCOTUS by four seats. In other words, Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court. But perhaps they know that’s an unpopular position, which is why Rep. Jerrold Nadler said what Democrats want isn’t “packing the Court,” but rather — well, let Nadler explain:
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) speaking at a press conference on Capitol Hill on his bill to expand the Supreme Court by 4 seats:
"Some people will say we're packing the court — we're not packing it, we're unpacking it."

Jerry Nadler is actually trying to say that packing the Supreme Court (The literal definition of it) is actually "unpacking" it…
The sad thing is that many people on the left will agree with this and repeat it as a talking point. pic.twitter.com/Fm08SQNTBN

Rest assured the media will help the Democrats push that framing as well.
Democrats move to add FOUR more Justices to the SCOTUS.

So for 151 years 9 was ok. But now they feel they need to change it because Trump put a few in there. This shit is ridiculous

Dems: Trump is literally Hitler, a total dictator
Also Dems: Let's change the rules while we have power so that we will have an ironfisted control over the SCOTUS for decades https://t.co/mNqGTHxqNx

It can’t be long before they’re saying “court-packing is infrastructure.”
Hey, at least Nadler didn't crap his pants this time. https://t.co/oG2BsSi6Ju
