With the liberal media unable to vocalize their spin on camera while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Perhaps tops among the news outlets with journalists losing their noodles was The Washington Post where, based on some of their tweets, democracy died in darkness on Thursday…or something.
First up was national reporter Mark Berman, who complained that he’s “stuck on Kavanaugh saying the allegations against him are an ‘orchestrated political hit’ fueled by anger at Trump’s election in 2016 and people trying to get revenge for the Clintons” since he had told the Senate at his first set of hearings that judges “stay out of politics.”
Colleague Aaron Blake was on much the same page, blaming Kavanaugh for worsening the country’s polarization: “Kavanaugh’s speech and this whole situation likely just hastened the politicization of the judiciary.”
As for columnist Ruth Marcus, she condemned “Angry Kavanaugh” as “not a good look, doesn’t seem like a very smart approach to me.”
It’s doubtful that it ever occurred to any journalist mentioned in this post that it’s probably infuriating to be accused of sexual assault and when you believe you’re innocent. Just a thought.
