Trump nominates Neil Gorsuch as Supreme Court Justice

Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman are considered the two most likely nominees to fill the Scalia Seat.

The gossip (i.e. media reports based on conversations with unnamed “sources”) claim it’s Gorsuch. Regardless of the choice — or if Trump pulls a surprise — Democrats have promise a fight to the death. They need to put on a show for the base. So it looks like this is going to go nuclear option.

Trump has played this masterfully, with the networks breaking into their nightly schedules for the announcement. He will have a yuge audience.
