Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Ashley Parker, Washington Post: For nearly eight months, President Trump has boasted that appointing Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court ranks high among his signature achievements. But earlier this year, Trump talked about rescinding Gorsuch's nomination, venting angrily to advisers after his Supreme Court pick was critical of the president's escalating attacks on the federal judiciary in private meetings with legislators.

Trump, according to several people with knowledge of the discussions, was upset that Gorsuch had pointedly distanced himself from the president in a private February meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), telling the senator he found Trump's repeated attacks on the federal judiciary "disheartening" and "demoralizing."

The president worried that Gorsuch would not be "loyal," one of the people said, and told aides that he was tempted to pull Gorsuch's nomination -- and that he knew plenty of other judges who would want the job.

Gorsuch found Trumps comments about the judiciary disheartening? What a hypocrite, he is a Justice today only because Mitch McConnell ignored tradition and used the appointment as a political weapon. F Gorsuch who brings nothing but political bias to the court. His name is now synomous with political bias on the court. Worse than Scalia.
