>> The courts seem to be so political.>> President Trump disputing that his pick for the Supreme Court has been venting over the President's continued attacks on the judiciary. Senator Richard Blumenthal was the first to report that nominee, Neil Gorsuch, told him that he found Trump's remarks, quote, demoralizing and disheartening.
Trump, on Twitter, blasting Blumenthal, writing that the Senator, quote, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him? But an aid to Gorsuch had already confirmed this report, and Blumenthal, by the way, did serve during the war.
He just never fought in it, a point he has since clarified. Trump received five draft deferments during the Vietnam War. Now, several other senators are coming forward to corroborate that, yes, Gorsich is not happy with Trump's recent outbursts after a federal judge temporarily blocked his executive order to suspend entry of travelers from seven Muslim majority countries.
Senator Ben Sasse telling MSNBC that Gorsuch told him an attack on one judge is an attack on them all. Trump has called Tuesday night's federal appeals court hearing on his travel ban, quote, disgraceful, and said the judges involved were incapable of grasping what he was trying to do.
The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is expected to rule as soon as possible on whether a lower court judge acted properly in temporarily halting enforcement of the President's order.
