To the editor: Isn’t it ironic that Senate Majority Leader
One would think that a strict constructionist would find McConnell's actions questionable, as McConnell essentially dissolved the separation of power between the three branches of our government.

To the editor: With an offhand, nine-word exclamation — "I got it done in the first 100 days!" — President Trump displayed rank narcissism. To exult over Gorsuch's taking of the vacant Supreme Court seat as a significant presidential accomplishment is beyond laughable.
When November's election gave Trump the presidency and the Republicans a continued Senate majority, Gorsuch's confirmation was a done deal. The only surprise is that it didn't happen sooner.
If Trump is to take any credit, it's that he managed to avoid impeachment before Gorsuch was confirmed.
