Trump Slams "Disheartening" Gorsuch Story, Accuses Sen. Blumenthal Of Lying

Tyler Durden's picture

With the allegedly confirmed statement from Trump's Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, who reportedly told Senator Richard Blumenthal that he found Trump's judge commentary "disheartening"and "demoralizing", dominating the overnight news cycle, in his first tweet of the day, President Trump contradicted a spokesman for his Supreme Court nominee, in a tweet blasting Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, who told reporters last night that Judge Neil Gorsuch called Trump's tweets attacking federal judges "demoralizing."

"Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?" the president tweeted Thursday morning.

As reported overnight, Blumenthal said Wednesday that Gorsuch allegedly called Trump's tweets attacking federal judges "disheartening" and "demoralizing."  In a later statement, Blumenthal urged Gorsuch to make his concerns public.

"Behind closed doors, Judge Gorsuch expressed disappointment with President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary, but a Supreme Court Justice must prove that he has the courage and independence to stand up to a President in public," Blumenthal said. "I asked Judge Gorsuch to make that statement publicly, and he declined."

Later, a spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed to CNN that the judge used the terms "disheartening" and "demoralizing" to describe Trump's tweets  during his meeting with the Blumenthal.

The statement was in connection to Trump's ongoing feud with the judges who have rejected Trump's immigration executive order. On Saturday, Trump ripped "so-called judge" James Robart who halted his travel ban, saying the ruling was "ridiculous and will be overturned."

Later in the week, the president also went after the panel of federal judges weighing the Department of Justice's appeal to restore the travel ban. “I don’t want to call a court biased, so I won’t call it biased,” Trump said at a gathering of the Major Cities Chiefs Association in Washington. “Courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they could read a statement and do what’s right.”

The Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit is expected to rule on the government's request to overturn the Temporary Restraining Order today or tomorrow.

Gorsuch has yet to make a public statement on his opinion of the ongoing Presidential feud with the abovementioned judges.

Odd Blumenthal forgot to mention all those "disheartened" victims of the San Bernardino Muslim's slaughter.


The Dems seem to forget those inconvenient terrorist truths.

Judge Gorsuch should have known better than to trust Blumenthal.

Blumenthal is not a friend, he has a vested interest in the destruction of Trump.

He would betray any friendship if it furthered his own goals.

If Gorsuch was displeased with Trump he should have said so in his own terms or kept his mouth shut.

Blumenthal is a name associated with graft and corruption.  Much like Kohn, Cohn, Kohen and Cohen.

his "election"  to the senate seat came in 08 along with one of the most blatant electoral frauds we've seen - see Bridgeport ballot shortage in 08 where the democrats stole the election for malloy and blumenthal.

Blumenthal is a walking, talking piece of shit, even amongst Senators-  he's terrified of the swamp being drained.

"Behind closed doors"

...which is to say the meeting was a private conversation. Bloomenthal then tried to make political hay by exposing alleged contents of that conversation.

Speaks for itself.

They never should have chosen Gorsuch. His church in Boulder CO is liberal haven.

Remember Obama's church, was a warning.

Ron Paul "I have to leave my church because I disagree with them."

You don't sit in a church that does not preach your values.

Gorsuch is a sleeper liberal.

That same thought about him being a 'sleeper liberal' is creeping into my head now too. I hope I am wrong there.

He doesn't need to, he was an appointed Judge.

I looked at his chart early on and was puzzeled.

He was born with the cultural marxist signature in 1967.

It was the Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Virgo along with his Sun.

This was the generational rollout of "America must die"

right now we have the push back with Trump and both houses.

Occupy to finish their agenda off, and conservatives gaining ground.

He is one of them.

So I went looking and found the church.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

As I type, I'm watching Blumenthal live on Morning Joe.

He was just asked about making these private conversations public...
He stated. " Gorsuch encouraged me to make this public "

I find that difficult to believe, on many levels..

Giant Meteor's picture

Damn. I believe someone just downvoted Morning Joe ..

In cases like these, its no holds barred hyperbole rules. Two men enter, truth gets fucked ..

fleur de lis's picture

So in addition to violating a confidence in public and betraying a friendship, Blumenthal leaves Gorsuch holding the bag?

If that does not teach Gorsuch a lesson about sedition nothing will.

The fact that Blumenthal is a lawyer does not make him trustworthy, it only means that he is capable of worming his way into circles where he does not belong.

Other lawmakers should take note and never trust Blumenthal with any kind of information that they do not want either in the public domain or used for Blumenthal's own ends.

Quoting NYT story? Tread lightly here ... grounds for assassination under this admin.


This is what he does ... teases you with a jab at somebody to insinuate falsehood .. if it's a machismo contest, I'm taking the Marine Reserve with educational and occupational deferments, over the rich prep school kid with bone spur deferments [who went on to play basketball - though poorly] everyday of the week...


But it's not ... it's about whether or not his SCOTUS nominee was disappointed with his imature remarks about a Federal Judge ... and he was ... confirmed by his spokesperson ... actually a good thing re his chances of being confirmed ... but the President would rather use the opp to whine and bicker about the opinion of opposition ... he's consistently the best catalyst for Gold

Trumps whining and should just man up and say "I understand why he'd say that, but he's still the man for the job", but you'll have to excuse me for not giving a shit about Blumenthals reserve "service." The only person Blumenthal serves is Blumenthal.

As much as I support most of Trump's actions so far I wish he would just shut up and let his accomplishments do the talking.  Typical "you look'n at me" New Yorker.

Are you completely incapable of following words?  The SPOX NEVER confirmed that those words were used in conjunction with his thoughts on POTUS's remarks.  You are a gullible guppy.

Blumenthal's military service statements and all his deferments should be made public.

He is great at hiding his own fables when it suits him.

Blumenthal is a smart Bolshevik worm with good connections with other smart Bolshevik worms who should never be in governance.

Bolsheviks cannot govern -- they can only destroy people, places, and things.


OT -- is it possible to get a list of all the military deferments since WW2?

It would be very interesting to see who is on the medical deferment list and how well they did in life.

Especially Bolshevk cowards like Blumenthal who would not serve but want the glory, then have the nerve to govern us.

Rahm Emmanuel is another Bolshevik coward who would not serve in the American military but signed up with the Israeli military.

It's easy enough to pick off a few Palestinians but that does not make him a military man.

It makes him a filthy Bolshevik, and he probably has a nice little kill list under his belt, targets here and abroad.

Anyway, he ends up governing Chicago and turning it into a violent Bolshevik mess.

Another Bolshevik worm where he does not belong.

Every DemoRAT is working to secure a higher pecking order and the best way to do that is attempt to discredit President Trump.  Blumenthal is just another lying, collectivist sack of shit.  

Ex-Oligarch's picture

Trump's tweet isn't about Gorsuch, or some sort of "he said, she said" dispute.  Nobody outside the media and the most dense democrat diehards cares about whether the nominee called Trump's remarks "disheartening," least of all Trump.  That's all trivial horseshit.

Trump's tweet is all about Blumenthal and the upcoming confirmation hearings.  It's a clear signal that Trump will play hardball with any Congressman who wants to grandstand about the confirmation.  Blumenthal may have thought it was clever politics to bring up this penny-ante foolishness, but now he's getting nationally shamed as a liar, fraud, and anti-patriot over charges that previously didn't make a ripple outside his district and were generally hushed up by the sympathetic media. 

Our esteemed democrat legislators may be a bit slow on the uptake, but I'm confident that they received this message.

Hey shithead, the SPOX confirmed that the words "disheartening" and "demoralizing" were used in a conversation with Blowmeall.  What you don't know, shit for brains, is that they were talking about the Super Bowl.

Trump needs to call him in asap and ask him "did you fucking say these words?". If so i would ask him put a statement immediately withdrawing himself.

Qualified is qualified, and this fuck is so insane that he appoints one day and slams the next based on whim. Shit is going to go sideways real quick. My guess is Trump is going to get taken down by his own team before the end of the year.
