During a television segment on Tuesday morning, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch actually said, “Merry Christmas.”
I forecasted a meltdown from the “snowflakes” out there over Gorsuch’s appearance and his words of encouragement.
He told stories, talked about his book, and gave some definition to “originalist” and “constitutionalist.”
He did not “throw a shout-out to Republican narratives,” as Amee Vanderpool on Twitter said he did.
“Left-wing critics suggested Gorsuch was signaling his sympathies with people disturbed at the secularization of American public life by saying ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of its capacious alternative ‘Happy Holidays,'” as The Daily Caller noted.
It must be horrible, in my view, for such critics to wake up in the morning feeling paranoid and convinced — at the lead of the impeachment Democrats, who have for years now created a conspiracy theory for just about anyone and anything.
Here’s how The Daily Caller explained it:
Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch set off a minor social media frenzy Tuesday after appearing on “Fox & Friends” and wishing host Ainsley Earhardt “Merry Christmas” during an interview promoting his book.
Leftwing critics suggested the justice was signaling his sympathies with people disturbed at the secularization of American public life by saying “Merry Christmas” instead of its capacious alternative “Happy Holidays.”
GOP Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina circulated a digital Christmas card for Gorsuch as criticism mounted and accused Democrats of an unfair smear.
Other commentators suggested the program was an inappropriate venue for a Supreme Court justice.
“Fox and Friends” is said to be a staple of the president’s media diet, and generally keeps a pro-Trump editorial line. Gorsuch has given numerous interviews to promote his book “A Republic, If You Can Keep It,” which appeared in September. The book is a collection of judicial writings, essays, and autobiographical details. (source: The Daily Caller)
Justice Neil Gorsuch is on "Fox & Friends" right now. The Q: How is it appropriate for a Supreme Court justice to try to goose sales of his three-month-old book by chatting on one of the most partisan shows on TV?

I don't object to Gorsuch promoting his book (I mean, it's weird but he's not the first). But appearing on Fox & Friends and not news programs on other networks is a bad look.

The Left removed God from its reality long time ago — the 2016 Democrat platform is perfect proof.
The Democrats had no problem with Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s or Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s multiple appearances on their leftist TV media — and going completely political during those appearances.
But God forbid Justice Gorsuch goes on Fox?
What an unforgivable crime!
Yes, we are a Christian nation, founded by Christians with God inshrined in our Constitution — not Mohammad, not Buddha, none other.
Merry Christmas to all celebrating this joyous occasion next week — and Happy Hanukkah to the Jewish people.
