Senate Democrats on Thursday vowed to filibuster the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch, foreshadowing a partisan clash over the empty seat left by Antonin Scalia.
NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch joined NRATV’s Grant Stinchfield Tuesday to explain why the Democrats’ objections to SCOTUS nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch are hypocritical and trivial: “Everyone sits here and they say: ‘well we have objections to Neil Gorsuch.’ No you don’t,” she said. “Because these are the exact same people, who back in 2006 unanimously supported him. He’s a pragmatist, he is not an ideologue.”
Last year, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell led the Republican party in blocking President Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, because of serious, principled concerns. Loesch noted the Democrats are participating in obstructionist tactics to block a well-qualified nominee: “These individuals try to argue that Republicans has absolutely zero objection to someone like Merrick Garland—who, I might add, was one of the most hostile nominations, hostile jurists that could have been suggested for the Supreme Court where it concerned Second Amendment rights.”
She continued: “The only objection that Democrats have against Neil Gorsuch is that it’s a Trump administration and that he’s a pragmatist. And they fear the fact that he could slide through so easily to a confirmation. That, Grant, is petty.”
