    President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court has called the president’s recent criticism of the judiciary “disheartening” and “demoralizing,” a spokesman for the nomination confirmation team told NBC News on Wednesday.
    Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, said Wednesday that he spoke with U.S. Appeals Court Judge Neil Gorsuch and that Gorsuch “certainly expressed to me that he is disheartened by the demoralizing and abhorrent comments made by President Trump about the judiciary.”
    A spokesman for the team working to confirm Gorsuch confirmed Blumenthal’s version of the conversation to NBC News and said that Gorsuch did use the words “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/neil-gorsuch-trump-s-own-supreme-court-pick-calls-president-n718566

    “Judge Gorsuch’s dissent in the case of a 13-year-old arrested for making fake burps in class” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2017/02/01/judge-gorsuchs-dissent-in-case-of-13-year-old-arrested-for-making-fake-burps-in-physical-education-class/ The majority upheld the school’s decision to have the school police officer arrest the teen-ager for disrupting the education process. Gorsuch, however, was not persuaded that the law permitted the state to intervene in such a trivial disciplinary matter. see also https://www.scribd.com/document/338082439/14-2066-1#from_embed
