President Trump is standing his ground against backlash from Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal.

The Connecticut Senator recently reported false information regarding President Trump’s Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Senator Blumenthal claimed Judge Gorsuch had made negative comments about President Trump.

But the newly President Trump was quick to step into the situation and crush the falsehoods promoted by the disgruntled Senator.

And ironically, it was not the first time Blumenthal had spread false information.

Trump was quick to point out that the Democratic Senator had previously lied about his history of being a Vietnam War veteran.

Fox News reports:

Blumenthal had for years boasted of having “served in Vietnam,” but had in actuality received five deferments, from 1965-1970, before he joined the Marine Reserve, The New York Times reported in 2010 when Blumenthal first ran for Senate. Blumenthal’s position in the Marine Reserve sent him to Washington state – thousands of miles from Asia – where he focused on local tasks, such as organizing a Toys for Tots drive.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Blumenthal told a group of veterans in 2008, according to The Times.

Blumenthal told The Times he had misspoken, saying his “intention has always been to be completely clear and accurate and straightforward, out of respect to the veterans who served in Vietnam.”

Sen. Blumenthal’s claim that Judge Gorsuch had made negative comments about President Trump was just more fake news pushed out by liberal sites.

Fox News reports:

Blumenthal on Wednesday told reporters that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch said previous comments made by Trump about a federal judge were “demoralizing” and “disheartening.”

“Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?” Trump tweeted.

He later added: “Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave ‘service’ in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!”

White House sources later confirmed the words used by Judge Gorsuch were taken out of context and manipulated by the Democratic Senator.

Judge Gorsuch, when using the words “disheartening” and “demoralizing”, was socially referring to the corruption within the Judiciary system.

Fox News reports:

But White House sources told Fox News that, while Gorsuch had indeed used the words “disheartening” and “demoralizing” during his meeting with Blumenthal, he was not specifically talking about Trump’s public spat with the federal judge, and was instead speaking in generalities about attacks on the judiciary.

In reality, Judge Gorsuch and President Trump are both very supportive of one another as professionals.

Fox News reports:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wouldn’t comment on whether Trump and Gorsuch had spoken in the past day, however, she told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday that “the president is fully confident in Judge Gorsuch.”

What are your thoughts?

Do you believe someone who lies about their military history should be allowed to serve in the government, much less believed when they make accusations?
