No Protests in DC Against Gorsuch Nomination Monday

As Neil Gorsuch delivered his opening remarks Monday, liberal activists did not stage organized protests outside the hearing or the Supreme Court.

Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s selection to succeed Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, delivered his opening remarks to Congress on Monday, but liberal protests in opposition to his nomination did not hold demonstrations outside the event.

While Gorsuch supporters rallied outside Hart Senate Office Building to show their love for the nominee, Gorsuch opponents were nowhere to be found.

Left-wing commentators and groups had called for unprecedented obstruction of Gorsuch’s nomination. But their outrage failed to materialize into DC protests on Monday.

Instead, one lone anti-Gorsuch protester stood outside the Supreme Court, holding a sign that lamented the failed nomination of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland.garland protester
