Happy Hour News BriefsWell, we have a question for Hair Führer, as he challenges the veracity that his SCOTUS nominee dissed him:
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
You gonna believe your lying’ eyes Hair Führer or the guy who said it hisself:
“He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way,” Blumenthal said of Gorsuch. “I said they were more than disheartening and I said to him that he has an obligation to make his views clear to the American people, so they understand how abhorrent or unacceptable President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary are.”
Ron Bonjean, who is leading communications for Gorsuch during the confirmation process, confirmed Gorsuch called Trump’s tweet about the “so-called judge” “disheartening” and “demoralizing” in his conversation with Blumenthal.
It’s unusual, but nominations can be withdrawn. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the Russian Usurper pulled Gorsuch for this slight.
tRump is a Vietnam veteran and he has never tried taking down a war hero.

He is? Didn’t he attack John McCain? Or is there a hint of sarcasm?
I think it was, perhaps, a soupçon of snark.
Our friends at Merriam Webster say
Culinary enthusiasts may think “soupçon” originated with a dash of garlic in the coq au vin or a splash of vanilla in the crème anglaise, but the etymology of the word has more to do with inklings and suspicions than with food. Sometime in the 18th century, English speakers borrowed “soupçon” from the French, who were using the word to mean “drop,” “touch,” or “suspicion.” The Old French form of the word was “sospeçon,” which in turn comes from the Latin forms suspection- and suspectio. Etymologists have further traced the word’s Latin ancestry to the verb suspicere, meaning “to suspect.” “Suspicere,” as you might expect, is also the source of the English words “suspect” and “suspicion.”
Now that you mention Vietnam, how ARE those bone spurs, Donnie?
