Despite allegations of sexual assault, attempted rape, as well as just plain overall drunken douchebaggery, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in today to the highest court in the land.
Women all over the country — perhaps the world — are outraged over this decision and we should be! It’s a slap in the face to anyone who has ever been assaulted — especially to those who have been brave enough to come forward, and like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, have been laughed at, mocked, and called liars.
Just this past week at one of his “I’m very important, believe me!” rallies, our own Sexual Predator-in-Chief, did just that. And he did it in front of the entire country:
You’d think at a time like this, the man would have a little decorum, but no… He’s a vile, disgusting pig, and he seems to enjoy being one.
If you think he stopped there, you’re wrong. No. He made matters worse for himself today in smug remarks made to reporters on Air Force One, not long after Kavanaugh was sworn in.
When asked about his thoughts on the FBI investigation and the background checks into Kavanaugh, Trump said:
‘I’m a hundred percent. I’m a hundred percent. I have no doubt. The FBI has done an excellent job. They went through and they went through it seven times. The FBI went through seven investigations and they did a very thorough job, excellent job. And you know the other thing we know about life: if there were any problems it would have happened over the last 25 or 30 years during his professional life.’
Yes. You read that right. He said “a hundred percent” just like Christine Blasey Ford did during her testimony when she said she was “100 percent” certain Kavanaugh was her attacker. This is yet ANOTHER slap in her face by our “fearless” leader. And he just kept going:
‘If there was even a scintilla of something wrong – he was a very big judge for years, on what they call the second highest court. That would have come out loud and clear. This is – one of the reasons I chose him is because there is nobody with a squeaky-clean past like Brett Kavanaugh. He is an outstanding person and I’m very honored to have chosen him and he will be there for many years.’
“Squeaky-clean past?” Is he for real?!
Trump then went on one of his tirades against Democrats, which we all know he does to incite his base, stating:
‘We’re very honored that he was able to withstand this horrible, horrible attack by the Democrats. It’s a horrible attack that nobody should have to go through.’
He really is unbelievable, but it got even worse:
‘Women were outraged at what happened to Brett Kavanaugh, outraged, and I think that’s a total misnomer because the women, I feel, were in many ways stronger than the men in his favor. So you have a lot of women that are extremely happy. A tremendous number of women. Because they’re thinking of their sons, they’re thinking of their husbands and their brothers, their uncles, and others. And women are I think extremely happy’
The fact that he has the audacity to speak for women and suggest that we are “extremely happy” is just plain despicable. What happened today, and what has been happening over the past few weeks during this Kavanaugh confirmation process is the absolute PERFECT example of why women do not come forward to report assaults against them. And because of men like Kavanaugh, Donald Trump, and the rest of the Republican party, it’s probably fair to say that even fewer rapes and assault crimes will be reported in the future. Basically, our “president” and his party just made it okay for men to attack women. Think about that.
