Figures=> #NeverTrumper Ben Sasse Defends SCOTUS Pick Gorsuch in Attacks on Trump
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) spoke out often against Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
He was so out of control the Nebraska Republican Party passed a resolution to reprimand him last year.
Sasse is a total disgrace.
He wanted Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
On Thursday Senator Sasse came out in support of Judge Neil Gorsuch in his attack on Donald Trump.
What a surprise.
A Republican senator confirmed Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s concern about comments President Trump has made about the judiciary, saying the judge “got pretty passionate about it” in their one-on-one conversation.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) originally told reporters on a Wednesday conference call that Gorsuch told him “he found disheartening and demoralizing President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary.” That included tweets calling U.S. District Court Judge James Robart a “so-called judge” after issuing a temporary restraining order on his travel ban and calling the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals “so political” after Tuesday arguments on the executive order.
Trump tweeted this morning: “Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him? Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave ‘service’ in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!”..
…Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) told MSNBC he similarly spoke with Gorsuch about Trump’s relationship with the judiciary.
“Disheartening is a great word. Judge Gorsuch and I actually talked about that. And frankly he got pretty passionate about it. I asked him about the so-called judges comment because we don’t have so-called judges or so-called presidents or so-called senators,” Sasse said.
Why are a high IQ and balls so rarely found together? https://t.co/Kz8T0KAShR
