The problem of course is that even if he could suggest that Blumenthal's past misstatements disqualify him as a legitimate source for these reports (A rather ironic notion considering Trump's slippery relationship with the truth.) the problem is that Blumenthal is by no means the only source.Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
Courtesy of CNN:
Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Wednesday that Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump's nominee, told him he found Trump's attack on a federal judge on Twitter "disheartening" and "demoralizing."
Within a half-hour, Gorsuch spokesman Ron Bonjean, who was tapped by the White House to head communications for Gorsuch, confirmed that the nominee, Gorsuch, used those words in his meeting with Blumenthal. Several other senators, including Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, later relayed similar accounts of Gorsuch forcefully criticizing Trump's public attacks on the judiciary branch.
So is Trump suggesting that all of these folks are "misrepresenting" the facts? INCLUDING the GOP Senator and Gorsuch's own spokesman?
And speaking of misrepresentation, this was Trump's second tweet on this topic:
The problem with THAT is the fact that is a little thing called video.Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave "service" in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
Once again the most reliable source for "fake news" is Donald Trump and his administration."The President ... is once again off on the facts": @ChrisCuomo's response to @realDonaldTrump's tweet about him https://t.co/ckWo75HT8L— CNN (@CNN) February 9, 2017
Speaking of angry tweets check out this one that Trump sent our after hearing that the court held up a stay on his Muslim ban.
All caps. Just what you would expect from an angry racist troll on Twitter.SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
