Trump's Supreme Court Pick Says Trump Being A Real Dick To That One Judge
Hi Trump, this is a judge. You are not the boss of them.
UH OH, is Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump's SCOTUS pick who wants to take your slut pills and eat them, trying to get his nomination withdrawn? Usually SCOTUS nominees are pretty quiet before their confirmation hearings, so we didn't expect Gorsuch to hold a press conference on Trump's comments about the "so-called" judge who blocked the Muslim ban being culpable if the United States gets attacked. But we have been curious what the Heritage Foundation-picked Judgy Wudgy would think about it! After all, whether they are conservatives or liberals, judges are pretty sure of one thing, and that is that THEY. ARE. THE. JUDGE. DAMMIT. You don't attack the judiciary and expect to remain pals with them for very long.
Turns out Gorsuch was having a chat with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who asked the judge about that very thing, and guess what, the judge is not pleased:
“He 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.
Gorsuch’s comments to Blumenthal were confirmed by Ron Bonjean, a member of the judge’s “sherpa” team, a group of aides tasked with helping him navigate the confirmation process.
HE. IS. THE. JUDGE. DAMMIT. And is he trying to get his nomination withdrawn? Or alternately, is he trying to send a message to Fuehrer Pussgrab that in America, we do not have kings, but rather three equal branches of government, and one of them is the judiciary, and if they say your little bigoted Muslim ban is unconstitutional -- especially if it goes all the way to the Supreme Court, as it likely will -- then your little bigoted Muslim ban is unconstitutional, how do you like that applesauce, little man?
Our stupid pussy "president" has responded by attacking ... Sen. Richard Blumenthal, because hey, why not shoot the messenger?
Uh yeah. About that. First of all, didn't Trump avoid service in Vietnam because his tiny man-hooves were aching?
Former GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte, who is helping shepherd Gorsuch's nomination on the Hill said in a statement Thursday Gorsuch has told senators "he finds any criticism of a judge's integrity and independence disheartening and demoralizing." [...]
Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska also confirmed Thursday that Gorsuch criticized Trump's attacks on the federal judge in a meeting with him as well.
Sasse said Gorsuch "got pretty passionate" about the topic, particularly when he asked Gorsuch about Trump's "so-called judge" tweet.
"Disheartening and demoralizing." Gorsuch either keeps saying these specific words, or current and former senators on both sides of the aisle are all making up the same thing! HOW WEIRD, RIGHT?
Trump may be under the impression that any judge he nominates will obviously rule in his favor, as a way of saying "thank you, mister president, for making me a guy who is on the Supreme Court," but LOL, Trump should ask the other living presidents how that's worked out for them. Because newsflash -- THEY. ARE. THE JUDGE. DAMMIT.
Oh well, we shall see if President Steve Bannon withdraws Gorsuch's nomination and convinces his puppet Trump to nominate President Steve Bannon to the Supreme Court.
