Joe Biden pledged to nominate former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court during a campaign event in Iowa over the weekend.
Biden was asked if he would nominate Obama, to which he responded, “if he’d take it, yes.”
The leading Democratic Presidential candidate went on to endorse a wholly revisionist interpretation of the constitution, stating that he would nominate judges who viewed it as a “living document.” He also said that he wanted the half of the judges serving on the Supreme Court to be women.
Only one former President has ever served on the Supreme Court. William Howard Taft served one term as President from 1909 to 1913, and was later nominated to the Supreme Court in 1921, serving until his death in 1930.
Nominating Obama would violate a general norm of American government, seeing as Taft is the only exception to an unwritten rule separating the executive and judicial branches.
As a Supreme Court Justice, Obama would almost certainly be a radical progressive, voting to further mandate abortion rights and to uphold strict gun restrictions. Obama would most likely also seek to impose judicial amnesties akin to his own 2014 attempt to shield millions of illegal immigrants from immigration law.
Biden’s generous offer to the former President may come as a bit surprising to some, considering that Obama has thus far declined to endorse his former Vice President’s campaign. Some have wondered if the non-endorsement represents a slight to Biden, with Obama preferring a more “diverse” candidate to old, white Biden.
It’s unclear if Biden will stick by his pledge to nominate Obama if the former President remains coolly detached from his presidential campaign.
WATCH: Joe Biden Waves to Absolutely No One As He Disembarks Private Plane in Florida
Who is he waving to?
Joe Biden appeared to wave to absolutely no one as he walked off the stairway to a private jet in Florida earlier this week.

Who could he possibly be waving to?
Biden doesn’t have millions of energetic supporters who will arrive at the airport to greet him, unlike President Trump. The Democratic nominee was arriving in Tampa, Florida, for a few scripted campaign events in the swing state where new polling reveals he’s losing the Hispanic demographic to President Trump, an unprecedented demographic swing in the recent history of the state’s elections.
There appear to be a few airport employees in the distance, but they seem to be facing the other way.
This is quite concerning. A President should be cognitively sharp and acutely aware of his surroundings. Biden’s latest gaffe appears to do little more than raise even more questions about his mental acuity.
