It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect. One saw a flash in the exchange with Klobuchar the same sense of entitlement, cruelty and lack of simple decency that Blasey Ford recalled -- two teens laughing at her plight
“‘Have you ever blacked out?’ she asked. He sneered in response, ‘Have you?’ It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect.”
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh decided that to have any chance to reach the court, he would have to shed the pretense he was a fair-minded, calm, judicious thinker. He came out in the afternoon filled with venom, screaming at the committee.
You may have missed this moment that happened in the last couple of hours of yesterday’s hearing, when Kavanaugh sneered at Sen. Amy Klobuchar. "It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect.”
Even if anyone still believes Kavanaugh, after yesterday’s performance ‘one can reasonably conclude he is not the right person to sit on the court’. His exchange with Sen Klobuchar was disqualifying in itself
Why #Kavanaugh cannot be voted into the Supreme Court
“One saw a flash in the exchange with Klobuchar the same sense of entitlement, cruelty and lack of simple decency that Christine Blasey Ford allegedly experienced way back when, the memory seared in her brain of two obnoxious teens laughing at her ordeal.”
“Have you ever blacked out? she asked. He sneered in response, ‘Have you?’ It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect.” —
By his record, by his temperament, by his treatment of women, Brett Kavanaugh is unfit for the Supreme Court. #StopKavanaugh
The refusal to get the facts is both a telling admission of concern about what they would find and a violation the judicial goal of truth-seeking. It’s a political calculation, exactly what you don’t want to see from a judge
A nonpartisan would ask for, if not demand, an FBI investigation and Judge’s appearance. Kavanaugh wants to avoid both at all costs.
Kavanaugh says he was not the attacker. But even if you believe that, can reasonably conclude he is not the right person to sit on the court.
“She explained that she understood alcohol abuse because her father was an alcoholic. Have you ever blacked out? she asked. He sneered in response, “Have you?” It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect.” #StopKavanaugh
“After the break, no doubt advised by a White House minder, [Kavanaugh] apologized [to Klobuchar]. But the damage was done. The spontaneous reaction was the real one.” It was mean, sneering, aggressive and disrespectful. Doesn’t constitute damage to GOP.
Opinion | The most telling moment: Kavanaugh goes after Sen. Klobuchar "Cornyn, Graham or Kavanaugh...If they were women, they would be called “hysterical.”
This cannot be even close to the best America has to offer
