Gorsuch Sworn In as Trump Secures Supreme Court Victory

11

Judge Neil Gorsuch was sworn in Monday to his Supreme Court justice seat, putting to end a divisive bickering in Congress that saw the Democrats rebel, revolt and go kicking and screaming to the final hour of voting.

The swearing-in ceremony marked a big win for President Donald Trump, who announced the occasion on Twitter.

Trump also said, at the ceremony: “I’ve always heard that the most important thing that a president of the United States does is appoint people — hopefully, great people like this appointment — to the United States Supreme Court. And I got it done in the first 100 days.”

Gorsuch, 49, said he would try and live up to the somber greatness of the justice whose seat he’s filling, Antonin Scalia.

“I won’t ever forget that the seat I inherit today is that of a very, very great man,” he said, NPR reported. “To whom much is given, much will be expected. I promise you that I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great nation.”

This may not be the only Supreme Court nomination Trump gets to make — though Senate Democrats aren’t likely to embrace whomever might be named in the future, either.

From NPR:

“Trump also paid tribute to Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who helped engineer the moment. McConnell declared within hours of Scalia’s death in February of last year that then-President Obama should not be allowed to fill the seat. He blocked a confirmation hearing for Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, giving conservative voters another reason to side with Trump in last year’s election.

“‘Thank you, Mitch,’ Trump said.

“Senate Democrats were still fuming over the treatment of Garland and threatened to filibuster Gorsuch’s confirmation last week. Republicans changed Senate rules to prevent that, and Gorsuch was confirmed, 54-45, on a largely party-line vote.”

    Hope he gets to decide on deporting Left/Liberal jihadi supporters along with jihadis and they are given the Iceland Police treatment http://tinyurl.com/jqbvanr

    Gorsuch is a snake. Just wait until he stabs trump in the back. And then I will say – I told you so.

  • Janet

    I am thrilled that Judge Gorsuch was confirmed today! He is extremely qualified and will follow the constitution and keep his personal feelings out of it. Democrats know this but as always acted like little spoiled brats!

    Now, if we can just get some more of the anti-American leftist activists off the SCOTUS.

    The quote from Matthew 25 about the good and faithful servant is an encouraging sign.

    Now if old doily neck/Democommie, Ruth Bader Ginsburgh will kick the bucket we can put another Supreme Court Justice in the Supreme Court..
    This would help secure our Constitution for decades to come.
    Just my 2 cents worth.
