WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew his nomination for Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a 3 a.m. tweet in which he tagged Gorsuch, the president said, “You’re fired!”
Trump was apparently enraged that his SC nominee called his tweets about the judiciary “demoralizing” and “disheartening.”
In a meeting with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Gorsuch, who’s largely been silent since Trump nominated him last week, took exception to Trump calling a federal judge in Seattle a “so-called judge” after blocking the President’s travel ban.
The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for comment but we were told that he was on leave. There have been rumors that he, too, is about to be fired by the president for doing a lousy job as his spokesperson.
Moral of the story: don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
