Gorsuch Already Has Dems in Fits of Rage, and He’s There for LIFE

By

If absolutely nothing else came out of the Trump presidency (and, honestly, so much more already has) the appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is a gift that will keep on giving.

Gorsuch is only three months into his new position, and already congressional Democrats are launching into fits of rage.

From The Daily Caller:

Senate Democrats savaged Justice Neil Gorsuch’s early performance on the Supreme Court, as his first rulings reveal an important shift in the balance of power on the high court.

Three Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee gave grave assessments of the junior justice’s first months on the bench to Politico, lamenting that he has proved a stalwart of the Court’s conservative majority.

“We’ve got another Scalia,” the committee’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, told Politico. “Right down the line. Everything — everything,” she added, in reference to his continued adherence to textualist and originalist positions. “I’m surprised that it’s so comprehensive.”

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who repeatedly insinuated that the justice was a handmaiden of monied right-wing interests during his confirmation hearing, took something of a victory lap, telling Politico that he has already proved himself a willing “tool of the creepy billionaire coalition.”

Taking an even more frantic view was the Huffington Post, which suggested Gorsuch would bring down civilization as we know it, and Slate, which only slightly less dramatically feared for the future of the Constitution.

And guess what, liberals. He’s on that bench for LIFE.

Here’s hoping Trump gets to appoint a few more justices along the way.
