The View Gorsuch Hearing


“The View” co-hosts on Wednesday reacted to the Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court hearing. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Gorsuch’s hearing with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday was part of the confirmation process for the Supreme Court. Donald Trump nominated him in January, but it’s clear they don’t totally see eye to eye. After Gorsuch said in his testimony that criticizing judges is “disheartening,” Trump defiantly exclaimed during an appearance, “Somebody said I should not criticize judges. Okay, I’ll criticize judges.”

On the ABC talk show, Sunny Hostin said of Gorsuch and the hearing, “It was a good pick because he’s qualified for it, but I think they’re asking the wrong questions… He’s being very evasive like most picks are.” Jedediah Bila admitted she “kept waiting for him to get stuck.”

“What I got from him is his position and the way he feels about things wasn’t really important for this job,” Bila praised, adding, “He wasn’t alarming to me. He was measured. He was balanced.” Sara Haines thought it was “bold” when Gorsuch strongly said he would stand up to “anyone.”

Joy Behar actually admitted, “I liked him. He’s very handsome. He’s too sexy for his robe. I did like a lot of what he said. He was amiable.” That said, she did highlight a case she disagreed with Gorsuch on, leading to a discussion on whether judges should be emphatic.

From there, they discussed whether Trump’s nominee should even be under consideration given the investigation on Russia and the election. Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
