This Judge Brett stuff has gotten out of hand……and in all that time Trump was silent on his usual brand of of bullying toward the women in Brett’s early life….(did not last long after all)
But of course this civility could not last…..it just could not……
As President Trump exited the White House for a flight Tuesday, he spoke with reporters on the South Lawn about the topic you’d expect: Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the allegations against him. Some standout lines, per Time, the AP, and the Hill:
- “You can be an exemplary person for 35 years and then somebody comes and they say ‘you did this or that,’ and they give three witnesses, and the three witnesses at this point do not corroborate what she was saying. It’s a very scary situation where you’re guilty until proven innocent. … That is a very, very difficult standard.”
- “It is a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something you’re not guilty of.”
- “What’s happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice. … You could be somebody that was perfect your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman … but somebody could accuse you of something and you’re automatically guilty, but in this realm you are truly guilty until proven innocent. That’s one of the very, very bad things that’s taking place right now.”
- As for what kind of a time it is for women, “Women are doing great,” he replied when asked if he had a message for them.
CNN sees parallels between Trump’s statements and comments Donald Trump Jr. made in a Monday interview with the Daily Mail in which he said that, in light of the Kavanaugh allegations, he is more afraid for his sons. “I mean, right now, I’d say my sons. I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”
There were a couple of silly things said…..”when you can be guilty of something you are not guilty of”….think about that one! (That Trump is such a great wordsmith, huh?)
And then there is the ‘scary times for young men today”….really men should be scared…not the women that will be treated like shit if they step up.
First young men should have nothing to worry about if they keep their wankers in their pants……kinda like the “perjury trap”….the way to avoid that is to tell the truth.
But never fear…there are enough GOPers saying all the right crap to get him confirmed. This person does not have the temperament to handle being a Supreme Court judge….it is that simple.
