Gorsuch - Not what he is portrayed - well-rehearsed by handlers and supported at the hearing by Taylor & McGinley

Appeal Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, Mary Elizabeth Taylor, Deputy Director of Nomination and Michael McGinley, Attorney, Trump Administration  
Is Mary Elizabeth Taylor Donald Trump’s African American Influence during Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court hearings?

Taylor and Michael McGinley, attorney, were strategically placed during Gorsuch hearing with smile after smile and whispers? 
 **************************
However, we learn that Mary Elizabeth Taylor is a member of the Trump Administration, title - Deputy Director of Nominations.  She is through the office of newly hired, Amy Swonger.

According to Dow Jones, Taylor works under Amy Swonger, a longtime lobbyist who also worked for Mitch McConnell in the past.

What part did Gorsuch play in this media sham and handling?
The Washington Post reported that Taylor also worked closely with Makan Delrahim, the lead staffer on Gorsuch’s nomination team.
Gorsuch, presented as Jimmy Stewart goes to Washington man, with squeaky-clean law credentials was the message of Republicans on the committee that sought to have a slap-happy chat with Gorsuch.  Even their questions with merit were too often seen as not of the caliber they should.

Gorsuch spoke of his clerks and hiring his clerks annually.  He also turned around and gave the impression that Taylor and her sidekick Michael McGiley (seated directly behind him) were his clerks.  By turning around after glowing statements of clerks he selected for his court.  This gave the public the impression that the Black woman, admiringly SMILING often-often, in the background during the hearing was a law clerk of his office.  Of which Mary Elizabeth Taylor was NOT.  Taylor is part of the handlers from Donald Trump's administration.

Taylor’s co-worker McGinley
      Michael McGinley sat next to Mary Elizabeth Taylor and they both were PLANTS from the Trump’s administration for Gorsuch nomination.

McGinley like Taylor are newcomers for the Trump Administration.  However, McGinley worked back in 2009 and 2010 with Gorsuch office and 2014 to 2015 for Supreme Court Judge Samuel Alito.
McGinley joined the legal counsel firm that Trump has hired 14 attorneys for his administration.  McGinley is one of them.  MORE

Gorsuch was very scripted.  His team - Trump’s Congressional team – of which Taylor and McGinley are part of.  Is Gorsuch the person we want on the SCOTUS – Supreme Court of the United States?  We say NO.

GORSUCH Judgment
He is a proponent of originalism--meaning that judges should attempt to interpret the words of the Constitution as they were understood at the time they were written--and a textualist who considers only the words of the law being reviewed, not legislators’ intent or the consequences of the decision.

We say NO mainly because of his decisions relative to the narrow view with the truck driver Alphozo Maddin that chose NOT to freeze to death in the cold.

Alphonse Maddin was driving a trailer truck in Illinois one night in January 2009. The temperature was 14 below zero. The brakes on his trailer failed. He called his company to send out a rescue truck and then waited in his unheated cab for hours. When he was frozen numb and couldn’t speak clearly, he decided to unhitch the trailer and drive off to safety.
Maddin’s employer had a rule: Any driver who leaves his load unattended gets fired. Presumably, the company fears losing its cargo, and thus its profit. So the company fired Maddin.
He appealed to the Labor Department. It has a rule protecting an employee who “refuses to operate a vehicle because … the employee has a reasonable apprehension of serious injury to the employee or the public.” Maddin had a reasonable apprehension not just of injury, but of death. Six different judges agreed that he should not have been fired.
The only judge who disagreed was Neil Gorsuch. Maddin “wasn’t fired for refusing to operate his vehicle,” Gorsuch wrote last year in his dissent. He was fired for operating — that is, driving — his vehicle in a way contrary to company policy. So the company had a right to fire him.
Maddin had a simple choice, Gorsuch concluded: Freeze to death or lose your job. Maybe the company was not wise or kind, he added, “but it’s not our job to answer questions like that.” We judges just apply the law to the case at hand.

 Additionally, Hobby Lobby Stores v. Sebelius and Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged v. Burwell

Both cases had to do with the Obamacare mandate that employee insurance coverage provide all approved contraceptives. Gorsuch’s rulings seemed instructive; he noted that would require the objecting businesses to “underwrite payments for drugs or devices that can have the effect of destroying a fertilized human egg.”
Gorsuch’s opinions favoring the owners of Hobby Lobby craft stores and nonprofit religious group called Little Sisters of the Poor took the same sort of broad reading of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as the Supreme Court’s conservative majority.
In Gorsuch’s words, the law “doesn’t just apply to protect popular religious beliefs: it does perhaps its most important work in protecting unpopular religious beliefs, vindicating this nation’s long-held aspiration to serve as a refuge of religious tolerance.”
Gutierrez-Brizuela v. Lynch
In this case, Gorsuch called for reconsideration of a long-standing Supreme Court decision that is little known to the public but vitally important to the functioning of the federal government.
So-called “Chevron deference” means that courts should grant wide leeway to executive branch agencies when they reasonably interpret acts of Congress that are ambiguous. Some conservatives have said that gives too much power to the executive branch. Liberals are alarmed that would be a way for courts to routinely rule against the party in power.
In this immigration case, Gorsuch said the deference has gone too far.
It allows “executive bureaucracies to swallow huge amounts of core judicial and legislative power and concentrate federal power in a way that seems more than a little difficult to square with the Constitution of the framers’ design,” Gorsuch wrote. “Maybe the time has come to face the behemoth.”
==========
According to salary for Mary Elizabeth Taylor, as a Cloakroom staffer, she was paid, $37,264.40.  If that is her Deputy salary, they got her on the Cheap.  But then this is Trump's MO as well as having women to do the "this-n-that work.
