Judge Napolitano: Gorsuch is “Most Worthy Jurist to Fill the Shoes of Scalia” (Video)
NEIL GORSUCH IS “MOST WORTHY JURIST” TO FILL THE SHOES OF JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA …
Following last nights the announcement of Appeals Court judge Neil Gorsuch as President Donald Trump’s pick to replace the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, Fox News legal analyst Judge Napolitano had high praise for Trump’s choice.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Judge Napolitano stated, “Neil Gorsuch is the most worthy jurist to fill the shoes of Antonin Scalia.”
“I’m ecstatic over this,” Napolitano, a former New Jersey State Superior Court Judge, said, “[Gorsuch] is the most worthy jurist in the country to fill the shoes of Antonin Scalia.”
Napolitano said Gorsuch brings a “Scalia-like dose of skepticism” about the government’s ability to regulate the economy and Americans’ personal lives.
The Denver judge also embraces “originalism”, the idea that the Constitution’s meaning has not changed since its inception, as Scalia strongly did.
