The Hill reports:
President Trump on Thursday contradicted a spokesman for his Supreme Court nominee in a tweet blasting Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who told reporters that Judge Neil Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “demoralizing.”
Blumenthal said Wednesday that Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” In a later statement, Blumenthal urged Gorsuch to make his concerns public. A spokesman for Gorsuch later confirmed to CNN that the judge used the terms “disheartening” and “demoralizing” to describe Trump’s tweets during his meeting with the Blumenthal.
Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?

This is false— Trump seems to have forgotten that a spokesperson *for Gorsuch* confirmed Blumenthal’s comments. https://t.co/JfnBn7LAK3
