Mitch McConnell trolls with photo of Gorsuch after travel ban ruling
The Hill ^ | June 26, 2018 | Jacqueline Thomsen

Posted on 06/26/2018 8:43:06 AM PDT by Trump20162020

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) marked the Supreme Court ruling upholding President Trump’s travel ban by sharing a photo of him with Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

McConnell’s campaign shared the image just minutes after the Supreme Court handed down its 5-4 ruling finding that the ban was constitutional. Gorsuch sided with the majority of justices upholding the ban.

The fact that it was a 5 to 4 decision says a lot. These people took an oath to uphold the constitution and the laws as written. Yet 4 of them just voted directly against it.

He needs to get off his sodomite ass and confirm more justices.

Credit where it’s due.

Now get your ass back to work confirming the hundreds of the other Trump nominees before you break your arm patting yourself on the back, Mitch.

I’m not a huge Mitch fan; however I think that he deserves this good moment.

Oaths mean nothing to communists. They’ll violate any oath or treaty because the ends justify the means.

“I’m not a huge Mitch fan; however I think that he deserves this good moment.”


I would agree. We need to positively reinforce his decision to fight for Gorsuch, so that we get more decisions like that. I don’t like McTurtle very much, but this was a huge positive and will remain so for pretty much as long as Gorsuch is on the Court.

Mind you, Gorsuch isn’t perfect...but as the saying goes, “Progress, not perfection.” He was/is leagues ahead of Obama’s nominee, and at least as far ahead as anyone that The Beast would have appointed.

Yes, yes, let's all applaud an effort made A YEAR AGO!

And McConnell's coasted on this ever since. Trump's been dragging him ever since, kicking and screaming to do his job.

Are we supposed to applaud that?

Squashing the vote for Merrick Garland made way for Gorsuch. I thank the Turtle for that.

I thank Trump for Gorsuch.

It is often wise to allow a person a graceful path.
