"How in the world is Gorsuch able to go so many hours at a time without peeing?"

Having just come away from a grilling by Sen. Al Franken that actually prompted an eye roll from Gorusch at one point, Ben Sasse took his turn. Instead of continuing with a thread of gotcha questions, Sasse – as is in his nature – decided to inject a bit of humor to break the tension.

“My wife also sent me a text a little bit ago and said – and I’m sure she didn’t expect me to read it, but – ‘how in the world is Gorsuch able to go so many hours at a time without peeing?’” Sasse said, reading from his phone.

This was enough to send Gorsuch, and the room, into a laughing fit.

“I won’t make you answer, but the SCOTUS bladder is something the whole country stands in awe of,” added Sasse.
