Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Durbin Won’t Make Eye Contact After Gorsuch Utterly Annihilates Dem’s False Claim

On Tuesday, Judge Neil Gorsuch went through a 10 hour confirmation hearing during which Democrats employed every tactic they could to find something to object to about the Supreme Court nominee.

Despite their efforts, they failed across the board. Even when backed into a corner, Gorsuch found a way out, such as when Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., tried to accuse Gorsuch of sexist behavior with his students.

Durbin cited a letter signed by one of Gorsuch’s former students who claimed that Gorsuch had a “gender-targeted” discussion about family planning for potential female lawyers.

“Did you ask your students in class that day to raise their hands if they knew of a woman who had taken maternity benefits from a company, and then left the company after having a baby?” Durbin asked.

Gorsuch then explained how wrong Durbin, and the student, were. Gorsuch was not targeting women during the discussion; he was using a textbook that highlighted some of the difficulties that future lawyers would face.

Gorsuch explained that he asked the class to engage in a “Socratic dialogue” about what they would do if an older female employee of a law firm asked a young potential female lawyer if she intended to become pregnant – that is what offended some of his students.

“And, senator, I do ask for a show of hands, not about the question you asked, but about the following question. And I ask it of everybody. How many of you have had questions like this asked of you in the employment environment, an inappropriate question about your family planning?” Gorsuch stated.

Watch the exchange here:

At the end of his answer, Gorsuch stated that it was “disturbing” to him personally that many women were asked this question by potential employers. Once he was done speaking, Durbin had to look down because he had just been completely destroyed.

Durbin’s situation was not unique on Tuesday. Every single Democrat who tried to trip up Gorsuch ended up looking like a complete fool after Gorsuch refused to take their bait, and kept his calm throughout the entire hearing.
