Slimy Senator Al Franken is enjoying his minute in the sun, using it to do all he can to make Judge Neil Gorsuch look like a Republican political hack and therefore unfit to sit on the Supreme Court.
Openly suggesting that Judge Gorsuch had been a political activist, Franken declared, “I think it’s really important for us to understand how your political work and your political views might inform the views of the law and…. I don’t hold it against you that you did political work. Lots of people do.”
Staring at Franken in almost WTF? disbelief at the ridiculous line of questioning, Judge Gorsuch explained the political activism Franken was referring to…. “In 1976, I was walking the district with my mom when she was running for state house.” Judge Gorsuch then smiled and rolled his eyes at the circus he was forced to be the unfortunate star of.
Franken knew that Judge Gorsuch was born in 1967, making him nine years old when he tagged along with his mom during her campaign, but he couldn’t allow that get in the way of his character assassination plot.
