Maddow: Gorsuch Relatively Mainstream

Following President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the Supreme Court, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow stated, “It seems like the choice of Judge Gorsuch is a relatively mainstream choice that you might expect from any Republican President.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said prior Trump’s nomination of Judge Gorsuch that they would require a mainstream candidate to prevent a filibuster of Trump’s nomination.

Maddow, who is a harsh critic of the Trump administration, told her largely liberal audience Tuesday night that this nomination fits that criteria.
