White House announces new details about the swearing in ceremony for Justice Gorsuch


In what is seen as an expected move, Justice Anthony Kennedy will administer the judicial oath to newly confirmed Supreme Court associate justice Neil Gorsuch, who worked for him as a law clerk in the early 1990s.

Kennedy will perform the task at a public ceremony Monday in the Rose Garden, Fox News reported in a tweet Saturday:


Justice Kennedy also administered the oath of office when Gorsuch joined the Denver appeals court.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed as much in a tweet of his own:

Social media users reacted with plenty of cheer… and gratitude to President Donald Trump for nominating Gorsuch.

Now if someone could just keep Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg awake!

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
