Brett Kavanaugh gave his opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee this afternoon. His tone of voice was hostile and agitated. He sniffled away tears during most of his statement, and he described the hearings as a national disgrace. Despite all of the anger and outrage, he seemed more concerned about his reputation and family than the victims. Three women have come forward to accuse him of sexually inappropriate actions. He fiercely denied all the allegations. Instead of using the opportunity to gain sympathy or understanding from the panel, Kavanaugh came off as an entitled narcissist.
Kavanaugh says he never touched Dr. Ford. He also denied he attended the event where she alleged the assault took place. Instead of coming off sympathetic to the alleged victims of his abuse, Kavanaugh came off as an aggressive perpetrator only interested in himself. He called out the Senate committee for “delaying” the hearing for ten days. Additionally, he went on to say that the delay put his family and his reputation through hell.
Funny, all I could think about was the hell the three victims have lived with for over 30 years. When Senator Dianne Feinstein asked him questions, he rudely interrupted and took a hostile tone with her. Moments before her question he told the committee he valued and respected women. However, he didn’t appear to be respectful to the female Senator by interrupting her questions. Senator Feinstein reminded Kavanaugh that no delay occurred for the hearing. Additionally, she told him Senate Republicans set the hearing date.
Kavanaugh comes off as a spoiled brat that has had the world cater to his every whim. His outbursts to the committee reminded me more of my 5-year-old son than a man up for a permanent appointment to the Supreme Court.
Watch his opening statement and tell me your thoughts. Do you think he’s lying?
