The confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh will forever go down in history as the nastiest treatment of a Supreme Court nominee.
Kavanaugh had to sit there while Democrats hurled accusation after accusation at him.
And Kamala Harris was one of the ringleaders of the deranged Democrats going after Kavanaugh.
Watch her exchange with Kavanaugh during the hearings right here:
The New York Post summarized Harris's treatment of Kavanaugh:
President Trump on Tuesday attacked Kamala Harris for being “extraordinarily nasty” to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.
Harris, who Joe Biden had earlier announced as his running mate, went viral for aggressively questioning Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct allegations during the justice’s heated 2018 confirmation hearings, where she also touched on abortion laws and Trump’s reaction to the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
“She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh, Judge Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh,” Trump said during a Tuesday briefing. “She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she was, the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh. And I won’t forget that soon.”
Harris, a former prosecutor, expanded her profile back in 2018 with her grilling of Kavanaugh, who was left with a loss of words when Harris referred to abortion regulations.
“Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?” Harris asked at one point.
The two went back and forth on the question before Kavanaugh eventually concluded, “I’m not aware of any right now, senator.”
Many on Twitter were quick to point out that they'll never forget how rude Harris was to Kavanaugh:
And take a look at Harris's ridiculous official statment she issued on her website after Kavanaugh was confirmed:
“When Judge Brett Kavanaugh was first nominated, I said that he represents a direct and fundamental threat to that promise inscribed above the Supreme Court, ‘Equal Justice Under Law.’
"In the weeks since then, the basis for my concern has been confirmed.
"Senate Republicans used raw power to rush an unfit nominee onto the Supreme Court when the American people have more questions than answers about Judge Kavanaugh’s suitability to serve.
"When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with serious and credible allegations of sexual assault, not only was she attacked by Senate Republicans, she was mocked by the President of the United States. The White House then prevented the FBI from investigating critical aspects of the allegations or interviewing key witnesses—not even permitting the FBI to interview Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford.
"As a former prosecutor, I have led investigations and I have tried these cases in a courtroom. I have spent countless hours with assault survivors. And when I look at what has occurred over these few days, we have fallen short in fulfilling our constitutional duty to fully evaluate Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. This process has been a disservice to Dr. Ford. This process was a disservice to survivors everywhere. And this process has been a disservice to the American people.
"The Judge Kavanaugh the American people saw before the Judiciary Committee does not have the character, the temperament, or the judgment to sit on the highest court in our land. His own partisan, evasive, dishonest, and aggressive testimony demonstrates that we cannot trust him to be a fair and unbiased jurist. He is simply unfit. The Senate should have put partisanship aside and demanded better.
The New York Post also pointed out the irony of Harris attacking Kavanaugh and then agreeing to run with Joe Biden, a man who has also been accused of sexual assault:
By the standard of her own ample public record, Kamala Harris has just joined the presidential campaign of a serial sexual abuser, Joe Biden.
It was during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings that we first learned that Harris harbors serious presidential aspirations. Her cross-examination of the future justice went viral, prompting Politico to speculate: “Kamala Harris Rides Kavanaugh Rage in Likely 2020 Bid.”
She later explained her hard-line position in an Atlantic magazine interview. Sexual assault, she said, “is an issue right now that is where the issue of domestic violence was about 30 years ago. … There was a perception about domestic violence: ‘Oh, you know, what happens in the king’s castle is the king’s business. That’s private business. That’s not our business.’ But then we evolved as a society. … I believe this is an inflection moment on the issue of sexual assault.”
The explicitly stated assumption behind all this was that the allegations against Kavanaugh, spurious, unproved and uncorroborated though they were, had to be believed — because women had made them.
Harris beefed up her #MeToo credentials later, making it clear she doesn’t just believe women accusing Republicans of sexual assault. All women had to be believed, including those who accused prominent Democrats. At a campaign event in Nevada in April 2019, Harris discussed the allegations against Biden, declaring of the accusers: “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.”
So Biden is an abuser — because women have accused him, and all women should be believed. Right?
So what has changed since then? Sexual assault and harassment are some of the most serious allegations that can be leveled against a man. Harris now needs to account for why she is comfortable joining an abuser’s 2020 ticket. This isn’t some debate-stage policy disagreement she can just walk back, claiming she has “evolved.”
There are only two possibilities. One is that Harris didn’t, in fact, believe Biden’s accusers but claimed she did to score political points against him. If so, she used the very serious issue of sexual assault as a cheap political cudgel.
The other possibility is that she still believes the ex-veep’s accusers but is comfortable teaming up with an abuser (not to mention a racist, another charged accusation Harris has thrown Biden’s way).
