The Reviews Are In: Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Confirmation Hearing is a ‘Slam Dunk’

Democrats haven’t been able to successfully bruise, blemish, or lay a glove on President Trump’s nominee.

The Senate Judiciary Committee briefly broke during the second day of testimony for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, giving pundits time to discuss where Gorsuch’s nomination stands. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive.

CNN’s John King said of Gorsuch’s hearing, “the Democrats have not even bruised, blemished anything to this judge so far,” adding “[Gorsuch] has poise … he knows the law. He knows what he is doing.”

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell said that she thinks that the second day of testimony for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, has been “a slam dunk” for his confirmation.

Nia-Malika Henderson said that Gorsuch “is very much coming across as a very warm, affable, down-home kind of person. You imagine those folks in states like that would find him very appealing.”

MSNBC’s Chris Jansing said Gorsuch’s performance was “impressively disciplined,” and that Gorsuch “was extremely likable.”

Ari Melber, MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, said that Gorsuch’s testimony has proved that Gorsuch is “within the legal mainstream,” and that he didn’t see a single glove laid on Gorsuch from Senate Democrats.

This comes on the heels of Gorsuch’s first day of testimony, which was met with praise from pundits like Melber and CNN’s Gloria Borger. It would seem that Senate Democrats are mounting a losing campaign to tar Gorsuch’s nomination.
