... at approximately 40 seconds into the video, Sen. Murphy inaccurately described Gorsuch as an "originalist" and then gave an utterly ridiculous description of what originalists do when they interpret the Constitution. I shouldn't have to explain how stupid of a comment that was.

I agree that Gorsuch isn't an originalist, but he's indisputably conservative in orientation and aligns with them a bit too often for comfort. "Originalism" is at any rate a nakedly partisan, opportunistic, and inconsistent philosophy once you strip away the veneer of preserving a certain conception of how documents should be interpreted, and while Murphy's comments were quite hyperbolic the spirit isn't too far off the mark in all honesty.

Sen. Murphy could not think about the possibility that Trump is simply suspicious about the risks of COVID spreading. According to Murphy, Trump completely agrees with Dr. Fauci about how easily COVID is spread and Trump wants COVID to be spread so that his own supporters will die.

This essentially concedes that Trump was acting against the scientific consensus and putting people at risk, but you're brushing that off over semantics.
