President Trump said during the campaign that he would put people on the Supreme Court that would overrule Roe V. Wade and give abortion rights to the states.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC.) asked Gorsuch if Trump asked Gorsuch if he would overturn Roe V. Wade.
Here is the epic moment:
Here is how Gorsuch responded:
“SENATOR, I WOULD HAVE WALKED OUT THE DOOR,” SAID GORSUCH.
Neil Gorsuch is an awesome man and will be an awesome Supreme Court Justice. I know that we don’t want Roe V. Wade to stand but Neil Gorsuch answered this question perfectly.
Here is the video again.

Supreme Court Justices are not supposed to be beholden to the President. They are supposed to uphold the rule of law.

God bless, Neil Gorsuch! This man is going to make this country better. He is pro-life but is going to make sure that the rules on the books are upheld. His role is to interpret the law not change it. (h/t Washington Post)
We need more justices like Gorsuch. Amen.
