I was stunned to hear that he’s called Trump’s remarks regarding the judiciary “demoralizing” and “disheartening.” Here is the title of the article:
Gorsuch says Trump’s tweets on judiciary are ‘demoralizing’ and ‘disheartening’
And he said this in private to Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut, a man whose demeanor and every action gets ME demoralized and disheartened every time I have to hear him. And, of COURSE, the actual quote from Blumenthal is “He (Gorsuch) certainly expressed to me that he is disheartened by the demoralizing and abhorrent comments made by President Trump about the judiciary,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., told reporters after meeting privately with Gorsuch.”
Can Gorsuch be trusted to keep his thoughts to himself, particularly when he goes against someone who’s entrusted him with a possible seat on the Supreme COURT? Or do you notice that we don’t know from the quote in italics above that Gorsuch actually used the word “abhorrent” ….and is ‘demoralizing’ really so bad? Is this a terrible move on Gorsuch’s part for having confided at all to a man like Blumenthal OR is this a media story blown way beyond its actual gravity? Sadly, Gorsuch apparently admitted he had said these things …..
AND….do you think HE DID THIS ON PURPOSE TO WIN SOME OF THE DEMS OVER TO APPOINTING HIM? SOME REPUBLICAN POLITICOS ARE SUGGESTING THAT.
What do you think? Is Gorsuch a great brain who’s not strong or savvy enough to face rabid leftwingers eager to get his goat? Did the Trump clan tell him to say something anti-Trump so more Dems would vote him IN? Or?
