Two questioners at the ABC town hall with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday had ties to high-profile Democrats.
Although ABC listed his profession as “communications,” Nathan Osburn previously served as a speechwriter for President Barack Obama’s White House, Fox News reported.
“Amy Coney Barrett’s being pushed through at the last minute, even though millions have already voted. So what do you think about ideas from people like Pete Buttigieg and others to put in place safeguards that will help ensure more long-term balance and stability?” Osburn asked Biden.
“And what do you say to LGBTQ Americans and others who are very worried right now about erosions of their rights and our democracy as a whole?”
Biden reversed his previous stance on court packing and told moderator George Stephanopoulos — who served as a communications director for the Bill Clinton White House — that he would take a stand based on how the Republicans handle Barrett’s confirmation.
