Trump pushes back on reports that his Supreme Court nominee has called his tweets about judges "disheartening" and "demoralizing."

Trump also took to Twitter to make the same case:

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.

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.
Once again the most reliable source for "fake news" is Donald Trump and his administration.

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.

    The only way to dodge the issue is to deny it ever happened.

  5. "The Trump administration’s review of Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulations will take months to complete, but we already know the first rule to be targeted. This week, acting Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Michael Piwowar directed the agency’s staff to “reconsider” a rule on CEO pay long championed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

    The regulation would require corporations to disclose the discrepancy between what their CEOs earn and what their ordinary workers take home. It’s perhaps the simplest proposal in Dodd-Frank. Once a year, companies have to present the ratio of their CEOs’ pay to the median annual pay among all their employees.

    The executive class howled in protest, offering a litany of excuses. It was too hard to calculate. Foreign workers should be excluded. Running the numbers would be too expensive. Nobody would really make an investment decision based on this stuff. Above all, the SEC had to delay the rule so companies could figure out … something. This week’s move by the SEC is the latest in a nearly seven-year series of the agency’s capitulations to CEOs."

    Pence grants cadets amnesty
    By Henry C. Jackson

    Vice President Mike Pence traveled to West Point today to give a speech at an awards dinner -- and he led off by granting amnesty to the assembled cadets.

    Pence delivered a 20-minute speech on Thursday night, per a White House pool report, touching on the administration’s efforts to stop ISIS. Pence spoke at a mess hall honoring Henry O. Flipper, a former slave who was the first African-American to graduate from the academy.

    Before he got going, though, Pence used his executive authority to grant amnesty for minor offenses to the cadets. It was a crowd pleasing gesture, met with “waves of applause through the cavernous dining hall,” per the pool report.......

  33. Kellyanus Conjob is no longer on the hot seat.

    Sean Spicer is going to get his ass handed to him.

    "White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to downplay the importance of President Donald Trump’s tweets on Thursday by emphasizing how important Spicer’s own statements to the press are.

    Spicer was attempting to explain to reporters at the daily press briefing why Trump did not use his massive Twitter reach to address last month’s mass shooting at a Quebec mosque. Earlier this week, White House aide Kellyanne Conway had defended Trump’s silence by saying, “The president doesn’t tweet about everything.”"

    “I stood at this podium and opened a briefing a couple days ago about the president expressing his condolences [for the mosque shooting],” Spicer said. “I opened the briefing about it. So for you to sit there and say ― why are you asking why [Trump] didn’t [tweet about it], when I stood here and did it? I don’t understand what you’re asking.”

    “I came out here and actually spoke about it,” Spicer repeated. “What are you ― you’re equating me addressing the nation here, with a tweet? That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.”

    Spicer basically said they needed to pay more attention to him and less to Trump's tweets.

    Oooooo. That's gonna leave a mark.


    "Sens. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) doubled down on claims that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was incensed by President Donald Trump’s recent efforts to undermine the judiciary system.

    The lawmakers discussed personal conversations with Gorsuch during separate appearances Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” hours after Trump lashed out at Blumenthal on Twitter."

    "Ron Bonjean, a spokesman for Gorsuch, confirmed to CNN Wednesday that the U.S. Circuit judge had described Trump’s controversial tweet as “disheartening” and “demoralizing” in a conversation with Blumenthal.

    Former New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, who Trump tapped to shepherd Gorsuch through the nomination process, released a statement Thursday confirming the judge’s comments"

    “Frankly, [Gorsuch] got pretty passionate about it,” Sasse said. “He said, ‘Any attack on ... brothers or sisters of the robe is an attack on all judges.’”

    "Despite Gorsuch’s confirmed criticism of Trump, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Thursday on “Fox & Friends” that the president is “fully confident in the nominee.”"

    Well, if Kellyanus says it then we KNOW IT'S A LIE!

    We'll see how long it takes Trump to turn on Gorsucks, withdraw him and nominate someone even worse.

    Trouble In The West Wing As Roughly Half Of Americans Want Trump Impeached

    In a 46-46 split, the American people are divided on whether the President of the United States – a guy who’s been in office for just a shade under three weeks – should be impeached from office.

    This is a stunning number.

    The reason it’s not higher, though, is likely because the American people simply can’t stand the thought of Vice President Mike Pence taking the reins of power.

      I despise Pence but not as much as I despise his boss who, I think, is truly evil. I think Pence would at least be somewhat cowed by the circumstances should his boss be impeached and tossed out. Many of his faithful working in the White House would have to go too. Some of the stench would be eliminated. And then we'd have to work hard to make sure that Pence was out by January 2019.

    Insider: Donald Trump “fully rabid” after Muslim ban struck down, threatening to fire people

    Now that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously ruled against Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, his explosively angry reaction on Twitter suggests that’s he’s fully melting down over the matter. Now comes word from insiders that Trump has deteriorated the point of behaving in “rabid” fashion as a result, and threatening to fire his own top people, even as morale within the Trump White House has bottomed out entirely.

    White House insiders claim that Donald Trump is now “going fully rabid,” going on to explain that he’s “causing chaos, then blaming everyone else when things go badly. Demands omelettes, then fires whom cracks the eggs.”

    Elizabeth Warren breaks down the biggest Trump scandal you haven’t heard about

    refuses to be silenced. Two days after becoming an internet meme, the Massachusetts senator sat down with Attn to discuss an underreported but no less pressing Trump scandal.

    “What Donald Trump wants to do is fire one of the most important financial cops and then say to the American people, you keep walking down this dark alleys and, you know, what happens is what happens,” Warren revealed.

    The cop in question is Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray. Cordray’s term ends in July 2018, but Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, is encouraging Trump to “immediately fire” the director.

    “The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which didn’t even exist before the financial crisis [prevents Americans from being] cheated on mortgages and credit cards and] the things that ultimately blew up our economy,” Warren explained.

    The CFPD was created by the Dodd-Frank financial reform act and specifically helped combat home mortgage scams. Now that Trump wants to scrap the legislation, Republicans such as Rep. Hensarling along with Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska say Cordray must go.

    “The financial services industry, the giant banks figured out, Whoa, there’s money to be made here… by selling, lyin’ and cheatin’ scammin’ mortgages, and that’s what they did,” Warren said.

    1. Anonymous5:35 AM

      The CFPB will be done in stealthily, the same way that so any Wall Street villains were given top posts in this administration. All those supporters who thought Trump would defend their interests against Wall Street proved their ignorance. Trump loves money; he loves being around rich people whose business in money. it's all he cares about because he thinks he's epitomizes the ideal rich man. Ugh.
