It’s almost embarrassing to see the Democrats flail about over President Donald Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. There’s a good sign he attempted to sexually assault a female, Christine Blasey Ford, when the two were in high school. Democrats are calling for Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing to be put on hold until the FBI can investigate the charges.
I believe Christine Blasey Ford
Christine Blasey Ford makes a very credible accuser. She has nothing to gain by claiming Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her, even covering her mouth when she tried to call for help. Reportedly she took a lie detector test and passed.
She’s a well-respected research psychologist who when not teaching college students, has written many articles for professional publications. If anything, Dr. Ford appears more accomplished in her field that Judge Kavanaugh is in his. He owes most of his accomplishments to being in the right political party at the right time. Dr. Ford achieved her successes and accomplishments regardless of her politics.
Even if Democrats get their way and the FBI investigates Dr. Ford’s claim, and find nothing to prove or disprove the allegation, does it really matter? This is Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. I highly doubt an attempted rape in high school would mean anything to Trump or his more hard-core supporters. To support Trump means to support a man who once bragged about being able to grab women’s genitalia because he’s rich.
Remember when Republicans were on Team Jesus?
Even if the FBI found an old Betamax tape showing Judge Kavanaugh’s attack Dr. Ford, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to Republican Senators. No matter what, they will do Trump’s bidding.
One of the things you give up when you support someone as heinous as Donald Trump is the ability to pretend you care about morality, character, or personal accountability. You can claim to be a devout Christian, but if you throw your lot in with Trump, people will know your religiosity is a fraud. People will know you’re pretending to be something you’re not.
Let’s finish this thing
Speaking of fraud, this confirmation hearing is a sham. The Republican Senators will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh no matter what. I say it’s better to get the inevitable over and hold the vote. If Democrats want to make sure someone like Judge Kavanaugh doesn’t sit on the Supreme Court, they need to concentrate their attention and vast resources on winning elections. If they hadn’t insisted on making their presidential nominee someone as divisive as Hillary Clinton, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
