I’m certainly not one to call the game a win when we’re barely into the first quarter (so to speak). But if this is the best argument the Democrats have against putting Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be addressing SCOTUS Justice Gorsuch soon enough.
The confirmation hearings for Judge Gorsuch are currently underway and the Democrats have brought in their heavy-hitters. By which I mean the typical clowns with their BS arguments that regular Americans are no longer buying. But that doesn’t mean the Democrats won’t still try, bless their ignorant hearts.
For example, their latest sterling example of wit and political acumen Senator Dianne Feinstein brought up Gorsuch’s record of judging cases with originalist Constitutional interpretation. And that’s BAAAAAAAAAD because, as Feinstein put it, merely a century before the Constitution was written, people were burning women at the stake for witchcraft.
No, for real. That’s what she said –
Feinstein says she finds Gorsuch’s originalist philosophy troubling. Says Constitution is living document, should evolve with the country.

Sen Feinstein attacks “originalist” philosphy of Gorsuch. Notes in 1789, it wasn’t long ago “women had been burned at stake for witchcraft.”

So… do we need to add “burning witches” next to the list of things Democrats pretend is in the Constitution, but really aren’t? Like the right to healthcare and abortion and changing the law based on technology?
Sen Feinstein doesn’t seem to realize an entire century passed between the Salem witch trials & the adoption of the US Constitution #Gorsuch

Feinstein talks about burning witches at the stake, which is totally relevant to a Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

It’s in the Constitution right next to “and we the founders don’t know about technological advancement so…ya know…ban guns and stuff.” https://t.co/tqd9YyfXZI

History is clearly not Feinstein’s strong suit. British colonies weren’t officially established until well after the Salem Witch Trials.

Good grief, woman. How stupid can you get?
(Oh right – she was elected to represent California. That explains a few things.)
