If Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, had not tried to present himself as a choirboy, he would not have caught himself up in so many lies. He cannot be that smart if he thought that the press would not have investigated so many easily provable tales. Here is the latest one.
At first, the nominee claimed to only have the occasional beer. Then, word began to circulate about how belligerent and aggressive Kavanaugh became after drinking — that he was a mean drunk.
‘In a 2014 speech at Yale, Kavanaugh recounted his fun partying days with a story about “falling out of the bus onto the front steps of Yale Law School at about 4:45 a.m.” after attending a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. He then admitted that he and a friend had to put together their memory of the drunken night the next day.’
‘The many LIES of
#Kavanaugh! And he lied about not knowing about Ramirez until 9/23, but he was contacting & pressuring friends in July to take his side vs Ramirez.’
#Kavanaugh LIED at the hearing. He admitted in a 2014 speech at Yale about stumbling off the bus drunk & not remembering the next day!’
Why does this matter? Someone who drank heavily, was a sloppy drunk, likely did not fall asleep as the judge said. Rather, people have blackouts where they appear to be functioning, but have no memory of events.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claimed that Kavanaugh tried to rape her when he was very drunk. She worried that he would unintentionally smother her when she tried to scream for help, and he put his hand over her mouth. She had trouble breathing, while Kavanaugh and his best friend laughed uproariously.
