Missed Neil Gorsuch’s Swearing In? Here’s What Made It Extra Special

On Monday in the White House’s Rose Garden, our newest supreme court justice, Neil Gorsuch, took the oath of office administered by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"This is a very, very special moment because many years ago a young Neil Gorsuch started his legal career as a law clerk to Justice Kennedy," President Trump remarked at the beginning of the swearing-in ceremony. “[Kennedy] will become the first ever supreme court justice to serve with one of his former law clerks. That’s sort of a big deal, isn’t it?”

“I’ve always heard that the most important thing that a president of the United States does is appoint people — hopefully great people, like this appointment — to the United States Supreme Court. And I can say this is a great honor. And I got it done in the first 100 days! That’s even nice.” Trump said to laughter from the crowd.

"Justice Gorsuch, you are now entrusted with the sacred duty of defending our Constitution. Our country is counting on you to be wise, impartial, and fair. To serve under our laws, not over them. And to safeguard the right of the people to govern their own affairs," Trump added. "I wish God's blessings on your amazing journey ahead. I have no doubt you will go down as one of the truly great justices.”

Trump also made mention of the man Gorsuch replaces, saying, "Justice Scalia was a patriot who revered our Constitution. He was beloved by many...and he is deeply missed by all of us."

Following his taking of the oath of office, and after a lengthy period of applause, Justice Gorsuch thanked many people for helping make this day possible.

To his wife Louise and daughters Emma and Belinda, he said, “Thank you for your perseverance and your patience, your courage, and your love. I simply could not have attempted this without you.”

“I am humbled by the trust place in me today,” Gorsuch concluded his brief speech. “I will never forget that to whom much is given, much will be expected. And I promise you, that I will do all that my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great nation. Thank you.”
