Former Saturday Night Live comedian Al Franken has no place being in the U.S. Senate, and everybody knows it. Nonetheless, conservatives have been subjected to his brainless attacks on the Senate floor. He recently asked future Supreme Court Justice a very stupid question, and Gorsuch clobbered him with an amazing putdown
Began Franken during Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing, “Mr. Priebus [said] your nomination was central to President Trump’s fulfilling his policy objectives, quote, ‘Neil Gorsuch represents a type of judge that has a vision of President Trump, and it,’ — referring to your nomination — ‘fulfills the promise that he made to all of you,’ speaking to the conservative activists gathered at CPAC.”
Continued Franken,“What do you think that Mr. Priebus was talking about?” Gorsuch blew him off, answering, “Respectfully, Senator, Mr. Priebus doesn’t speak for me and I don’t speak for him. I don’t appreciate when people characterize me, as I’m sure you don’t appreciate when people characterize you. I like to speak for myself. I am a judge. I am my own man.”
Franken, who didn’t get the message, carried on, saying, “I want to get back to the panel at CPAC. After Mr. Priebus discussed your nomination, Steve Bannon talked about the president’s agenda. He described three priorities; one of them was, quote, ‘The deconstruction of the administrative state.’ Here’s what Mr. Bannon meant by that. He said that regulation was a problem from his perspective and, quote, ‘Every business leader we’ve had in is saying not just taxes but it is also regulation.’”
Idiot Franken kept going, saying, “He said that if you look at the President’s appointees, quote, ‘They were selected for a reason and that is so deconstruction.’ The way the progressive left runs is if they can’t get it passed [in legislation] they’re just going to put in some sort of regulation in an agency.’” Then Franken finally arrived at his moronic question, asking, “Taking Steve Bannon at his word, do you think only Cabinet appointees were selected to bring about this deconstruction or do you think the White House also sees a role here for its judicial nominees?” Gorsuch, showing incredible class, answered, “Senator, respectfully, I believe that’s a question best directed to Mr. Bannon.”
How much do you love Neil Gorsuch?
