Hearings for Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch hit a minor roadblock yesterday as Democrats came up against the mild inconveniences of daily life on their way to the chamber.
Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) felt some pressure in his bladder, and decided it would be best to relieve himself first. He excused himself, saying he’d right back after a trip to the little boy’s room.
“It’ll just take me a year or so.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, then remembered she had to pop back home to feed her cats.
“Won’t be long as I only have 24,453 of them.”
Democrats dismissed suggestions that they were taking revenge for woeful Republican delays that prevented Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, from even getting to have a hearing.
Durbin then sent word from the men’s bathroom that he would need to take a dump too as he’d had a large meal of pasta the day before.
“Be there as fast as I can, say in four years.”
