Gorsuch ‘Demoralized’ by Trump Bashing ‘So-Called Judge’

Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court expressed to lawmakers Wednesday that he was upset to see the president attacking the federal judge who temporarily suspended his ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. In a private meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Judge Neil Gorsuch said it was “disheartening” and “demoralizing” to see the president bash Bush-appointed federal Judge James L. Robart as a “so-called judge” after a ruling on the travel ban went against Trump’s wishes. A representative for Gorsuch confirmed that he used those words to describe the situation.
