Democrats Favor Expanding Supreme Court by Adding Entire Obama Family

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A proposal to expand the size of the Supreme Court by adding the entire Obama family is gaining traction among Democratic activists.

Harland Dorrinson, a Democratic insider who is leading the movement to add all four Obamas to the nation’s highest court, cited a recent poll showing that ninety-eight per cent of Democratic voters favor the proposal, with a possible polling error of two points.

Acknowledging that the Obamas “already have a lot on their plates,” the activist asserted that serving on the Court could be worked into the family’s busy schedule.

“The Supreme Court only meets about nine months out of the year,” Dorrinson said. “That would give the Obamas plenty of time to do their Netflix and podcast stuff.”

While the presence of Sasha and Malia Obama on the Supreme Court is bound to stir controversy because of their youth, Dorrinson said, “There is a consensus among Democrats that you can never have too many Obamas.”

Dorrinson cautioned, however, that adding the entire Obama family to the Supreme Court is only a “first step” in the Democrats’ ultimate vision of judicial reform.

“The plan is to expand the Supreme Court to thirty Justices, so four Obamas just get you partway there,” he said.
