Gorsuch’s response to Trump’s ‘disheartening’ remarks on the judiciary doesn’t sit well with Laura Ingraham

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is far from supportive of President Donald Trump’s recent attacks on the judiciary.

Gorsuch reportedly told a US senator on Wednesday that he found the president’s tweets about the judiciary to be “demoralizing” and “disheartening,” according to CNN.

In a series of tweets, Trump blasted the judge who temporarily blocked the travel ban for seven Muslim-majority nations, calling it a “terrible decision” by the “so-called judge.”

Gorsuch commented on Trump’s remarks about the federal judge in a meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, CNN reported.

“He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way,” Blumenthal said. “I said they were more than disheartening and I said to him that he has an obligation to make his views clear to the American people, so they understand how abhorrent or unacceptable President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary are.”

A spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed to CNN that the Supreme Court nominee did express concern about Trump’s “so-called judge’ tweet.

Conservative political commentator and radio host, Laura Ingraham, in turn expressed her concern over the comments by Gorsuch, saying his independent stand “doesn’t bode well.”

Ingraham argued that Gorsuch should know better than to criticize the man who just nominated him.

Twitter users largely disagreed with Ingraham, however, and applauded Gorsuch’s independent thinking.
