Minnesota Senators Embarrass Themselves At Gorsuch Hearing

posted by Justice & Drew - 

During the confirmation hearings for Neil Gorsuch, both Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken had the opportunity to ask the Supreme Court nominee about his qualifications. Instead, they decided to engage in irrelevant political grandstanding that should be embarrassing to most Minnesotans.

Franken became downright rude, interrupting and cutting Gorsuch off when it became apparent that he wasn't going to get the answer he wanted. Watch the full exchange here:

How embarrassing.
