PRESIDENT TRUMP SELECTS JUDGE NEIL M. GORSUCH FOR SUPREME COURT
Last night, President Trump selected Neil M. Gorsuch as the nominee for the, [Scalia's] Supreme Court.
The following conversations/statements were recorded along with my personal responses:
On the Nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch: (unanimously confirmed by the Senate to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals)
Mainstream Media: “Stolen Nomination”
Mara Liasson last night: “This is why elections have consequences.”
Protesting Liberals out in front of the courthouse chanting: “This is what America Looks Like”. Well, no, check the electoral map snowflakes, and take a serious look outside of your bubbles. (my words)
Pelosi, House and Senate Democrats: “This is a man who is outside the mainstream.”
Pelosi: “A very hostile appointment”
CNN: “Dems Furious over Merrick Garland, but odds favor confirmation”
CNN: Yeah, but what about the travel ban and the bungled rollout? No one in leadership knew what was about to happen. (paraphrased)
Two words: Extreme Vetting. (notice how the “Muslim Ban” has faded from the media’s rhetoric)
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly: Despite the media’s bullshit narrative that leadership was not in the loop, he was well aware and helped develop the rollout of the executive order. (my words)
“Kelly, though, said Tuesday he knew the ban could be coming as far back as 18 months ago when Trump was making it a campaign promise.”
“We knew it was coming. It wasn’t a surprise,” Kelly said, in his first press conference since the order on Friday suspended refugee admissions and temporarily restricted immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. “We knew Friday morning that it was going to be signed."
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough: “Trump hit it out of the park last night among his conservative base.” “Chuck Schumer’s life just became a lot more difficult” (cue the tears)
Willie Geist: He, [Trump], certainly looked comfortable last night. On Trump’s Supreme Court selection: This is why so many held their noses and voted for Trump.
Marc Halprin: Senate Democrats up for election in “Trump-won” states (in 2018), are going to have a hard time on deciding how to vote on this nominee.
It’s ANOTHER GREAT DAY IN TRUMP’S AMERICA!!!
