Trump Picks at the Gorsuch Scab

If Gorsuch, per my theory, is in fact starting to feel iffy about this whole Supreme Court thing, this can't be allaying his doubts:

Not even a public scolding from Judge Neil M. Gorsuch could get President Trump to stop bashing federal judges.
Hours after Mr. Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court declared during Senate confirmation hearings that he was “disheartened” about Mr. Trump’s unrestrained attacks on the judicial branch, the president was at it again, calling out the federal judges who have halted his second executive order banning travel from certain predominantly Muslim nations.
“Somebody said I should not criticize judges. O.K. I’ll criticize judges,” Mr. Trump said on Tuesday night at a fund-raising dinner for the National Republican Congressional Committee — reiterating his pique at a federal court judge in Hawaii who last week placed a stay on his second travel order.

And who was it that said he should not criticize judges? His own Supreme Court nominee!
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch criticized Tuesday President Donald Trump's attacks on the federal judge who blocked his administration's travel ban, saying for the first time publicly that he found them "disheartening" and "demoralizing."
Gorsuch previously made those comments in private conversations with senators, but Tuesday marked the first time he went on the record with his disapproval of the president's rhetoric when he called US District Judge James L. Robart a "so-called judge."
"When anyone criticizes the honesty, integrity, the motives of a federal judge, I find that disheartening, I find that demoralizing, because I know the truth," he said during his Senate confirmation hearing, in response to a question from Sen. Richard Blumenthal about Trump's tweets.
Asked by the Connecticut Democrat if that "anyone" included the President.
"Anyone is anyone," Gorsuch said.

Another instance in which Trump's idiocy and incompetence may be saving the country, per Olbermann:
