OPINION_ No, Judge Gorsuch Shouldn’t Attack Trump, Here’s What He Should Do Instead


No, Judge Gorsuch Shouldn’t Attack Trump, Here’s What He Should Do Instead

As offensive, unprecedented, and inappropriate as President Donald Trump‘s reprehensible attacks on sitting federal judges are, Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch would be very unwise to weigh in any further against Trump on a personal level.

On Wednesday, after a meeting with lawmakers, Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut disclosed that Judge Gorsuch apparently called Trump’s attack on the 9th Circuit judges, and district judge James Robart “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” Despite Trump claiming on Twitter that Gorsuch’s words were twisted by Blumenthal, Gorsuch’s spokesperson (didn’t know judges had spokespeople) seemed to have confirmed the comments. And now Democrats (and heck, even some Republicans) are urging Gorsuch to publicly come out against Trump’s attack on the judiciary. “He needs to publicly condemn the President,” Blumenthal said on CNN Thursday morning. They are specifically hoping Gorsuch will go after the President during his upcoming confirmation hearing. In fact, Sen. Chuck Schumer said it would be a ” a big game changer” if Gorsuch would weigh in on Trump’s travel ban.

But, as great as it would be to see a Trump nominee blast the guy who nominated him, that’s a really bad idea for Gorsuch, and would even further undermine his position on the Supreme Court, where he is supposed to stay as far removed from politics as possible. Inevitably during his upcoming confirmation hearing, Democrats will grill Gorsuch about the tweets. Instead, Gorsuch needs to rise above Trump’s childish temper tantrums and instead simply and professionally re-affirm his belief in an independent judiciary.
