Praise Pours In For President Trump's Rollout Of Judge Neil Gorsuch

- January 31, 2017

The Prime Time Announcement Of Judge Neil Gorsuch Was Called "Very Impressive," "How It's Supposed To Be Done," An "Awesome Event" And A "Success"

CNN's Wolf Blitzer Praised The Trump Administration's Roll Out Of Judge Gorsuch's Nomination, Saying They Did "A Very Impressive Job." CNN'S WOLF BLITZER: "A very impressive introduction of Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the United States Supreme Court. We have lots to assess right now. I want to bring in some of the best legal and political minds. They'll be with us throughout this important hour. CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson, John King, Dana Bash, CNN Legal Analyst Joan Biskupic, and George Washington University Law Professor Jeffrey Rosin. Dana, you have to admit, they did an impressive job rolling out this nomination.'" (CNN's " Anderson Cooper 360 ," 01/31/17)

  • CNN's Dana Bash: "This Is How It's Supposed To Be Done. I Mean This Is Done To The T" With A "Flair Of The Dramatic." CNN'S DANA BASH: "This is how it's supposed to be done, I mean this is done to the T. Actually even more so than we've seen in the past. By inviting the leadership, the congressional leadership Republicans to the White House to do it in this flair of the dramatic, as he did. Walking down the cross hall, asking and then of course asking him to come up. But more importantly than the way it's done, it's what is done. A lot of times we would ask, why on earth would conservatives, you know really hard core conservatives, back somebody like Donald Trump, and work so hard for him? This is why. Because that is not the person Hillary Clinton if she were president would be putting on the bench, not even close. And be putting on the bench to replace somebody who, as he just said, the new nominee said was considered a lion and that is Antonin Scalia. I mean so much about this election was about jobs and the economy and America first, but also about this." BLITZER: "He is a conservative John, only 49 years old. If confirmed he'll serve on the United States Supreme Court for life, that's for decades to come, and he could have an enormous impact." CNN'S JOHN KING: "One of the reasons social and judicial conservatives, republicans in the Senate are so happy about this puck. This is a page turning moment for the President."
