President Joe Biden elected to repeatedly ignore and dodge questions being issued by reporters late last week on the topic of the indictment of former President Donald Trump as Biden scuttled towards Marine One.
The questions came in response to the legal team for trump and the Manhattan district attorney confirming late last week that the former president was indicted by a grand jury in connection to an alleged $130,000 hush money payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
"I have no comment on that," Biden quickly stated to a reporter.
When questioned about if he was at all worried about possible protests due to the coming indictment, Biden stated, "No, I’m not going to talk about Trump’s indictment."
"I have no comment at all on Trump," Biden stated to a different reporter.
When questioned about if he thought the indictment was "politically motivated," Biden claimed, "I have no comment on Trump."

Joe Tacopina, the attorney for Trump stated this past Friday morning that he does not think his client will end up being put in handcuffs when he hands himself over to New York law enforcement officials.
Trump "will not take a plea deal on this case. It’s not gonna happen," Tacopina stated in an interview aired on NBC News. "There’s no crime. I don’t know if it’s gonna make it to trial because we have substantial legal challenges."
In an interview hosted on ABC News, Tacopina stated that Trump was "shock[ed]" by the recent news that he was officially being indicted.
"This is unprecedented in this country’s history. I don’t know what to expect other than an arraignment," he stated. "I understand they’re going to be closing off blocks around the courthouse, shutting down the courthouse. You know, we’ll go in there and we’ll proceed to see a judge at some point, plead not guilty, start talking about filing motions, which we will do immediately and very aggressively regarding the legal viability of this case."
Tacopina stated that he thinks that prosecutors to "try to get every ounce of publicity they can out of this thing."
"The president will not be put in handcuffs," he went on. "As far as a mugshot’s concerned, perp walk, I mean, you know, as I said, I’m sure they’ll try to make sure they get some joy out of this by parading him."
"But, you know, I think this is a different situation," he concluded. "It is a lot of groups involved here and I don’t think they’re going to allow this to become a circus, as much as humanly possible."
