Donald Trump’s Fox & Friends lickspittles were delighted that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reminded them of Dear Leader yesterday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Because nothing says “right temperament for a lifetime appointment to the top court in the land” than one guy accused of sexual assault acting like a guy who has boasted about committing sexual assault.
Media Matters caught the Curvy Couch Cheerleaders suggesting that what the country needs now is someone like Trump on the Supreme Court (emphases added):
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I love this description: [Kavanaugh] might have been a Bush appointee, but he channeled Trump yesterday.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): It was very Trumpian.
KILMEADE: It was very Trumpian. And he said—and it’s been speculated that he was channeling one person, that’s the president, who was watching.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Because he was real?
KILMEADE: But he also wants to fight. The president’s a fighter—whether you love him or not, that’s up to you. But no one doubts this: The president fights for who and what he believes in daily.
Earhardt promotes herself as a devout Christian who claims to hate political divisiveness. But that never seems to interfere with her worship of the congenital liar who has been repeatedly accused of sexual assault and harassment and has even bragged about grabbing women by the p**** . It certainly didn’t interfere with her sycophancy now.
Instead of showing any concern for the many lies Kavanaugh has been caught (so far) telling under oath, Earhardt joined the Fox News cheering of Kavanaugh for channeling Clarence Thomas, too. He's the accused sexual harasser already on the Supreme Court bench:
EARHARDT: All of the media was saying [Kavanaugh] needs to be different than he was in that measured interview. He really didn’t say much in that interview, maybe because he was prepped for it. But many people were saying they want to see the Clarence Thomas come out because Clarence Thomas, when he was in the same position, he was heated, defending himself.
So Ainsley, who do you think Jesus would have groped and what would he have lied about under oath?

Jeff Flake was a welcome and refreshing reversal of what I’ve come to expect as the GOP modus vivendi since 2008. They’re insisting that it’s the Dems who are dragging their feet. We’ve got to keep on reminding others that this is BS. Mitch McConnell and others flat-out declared that they would never vote for anything proposed by that upstart called Obama. And the GOP flat-out refused to hold a hearing for Obama’s nominee to replace Scalia. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
I’m sure part of Kavanaugh’s sniveling opening statement was sincere emotion – the sniveling part. But the angry, defiant, self-righteous fire in the belly part of his performance for the rest of the ‘job interview’ seemed fake and rehearsed. Combined with his strategy of answering questions with repeated talking points that were typically unrelated to the question and meant only to run out the 5 minute clock and he came across – at least in my mind – as guilty as hell and trying to hide things.
Trump is an infamous serial liar who projects a narcissistic fantasy in any speech or interview. He’s also a reflexive pit bull who attacks any critic. The more guilty Trump is as charged the worse his nasty reaction.
Given all of the above, Kavanaugh acting like Trump confirms (again in my mind) he’s got skeletons in is closet he’s desperate to keep hidden. Can the FBI uncover any of them? Tough without Judge or Kavanaugh coopering fully but we can hope the FBI figures out a way to drill some holes in their convenient faulty memories.
