As of this morning, President Donald Trump is shrugging off the overt smear campaign being waged against his latest Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way,” Trump declared while heading to the United Nations. The message to Congressional Republicans from the President is clear – locate your spines, shrug off the disgusting tactics of Democrats, and vote in support of Judge Kavanaugh.
Trump commented on the unsubstantiated allegations as Senate Republicans prepare to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexual assault more than 30 years ago.
“He’s a fine man with an unblemished past. These are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers. You should look into the lawyers doing the representations,” Trump said.
The president signaled frustration with the delay of the Senate vote and questioned accusations leveled against Kavanaugh.
“There’s a chance that this could be one of the single-most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything,” Trump said, dismissing “people coming out of the woodwork” with accusations against Kavanaugh after he was nominated to the Supreme Court.
“In my opinion, it is totally political,” he added.
Indeed. The very same kind of dirty D.C. politics that Americans are so tired of and a big reason they voted to make Donald Trump their president.
