    The dude was coached, and is definitely on the Trump train. Both Trump and McConnel are nothing but a blight on our society. It’s going to take at least 20 years after Kavanaugh is worm food for the US to recover.

    They’re acting like liberals NEVER get emotional. Yeah ok. This was an accusation without any evidential basis. Any human being, who is accused of false allegations, would be subject to a negative disposition. Get off your high horses, and stop being hypocritical.

    How is it Cosby goes to jail but beer slugging Brett gets to be a judge on the supreme court as if nothing happened and no trial to dertmine his guilt or innocence,

    This is precisely why I watch C-Span and refuse to rely on msnbc or fox. I watched the entire hearing without bias commentary. Judge Kavanaugh's opening statement alone should have made it an open and shut case. He is innocent.

    Rachel Maddow misses the entire point that Republicans are trying to make. It does not matter if she chose to come out with her story when he was only on the list of possible candidates. The beef is why did she not come out with this story years ago.Brett Kavanaugh has a long career as a federal judge. Why did these allegations did not come out long before 2018. That is the point

  • Annette Duval

    A sob story from a catagory b actor . If you were audition for a soap opera he might gain a critic mention but for a actual nomination for any part in a movie demanding serious consideration maybe not ./Although invites to promote commercials that support substance abuse councilors necessity to try and reform this sad example of personal sabotage of the personnel struggles that disable these individuals from being able to function responsibly in society.self control is mandatory throughout our lives . When we get caught up in substance abuse we risk derailing our realistic potential prospect to a greater degree of disparity when we deny the importance of getting help for a dangerous addiction. This infomercial offered by this presentation is further reason to consider that diligence to trouble shoot problems has never been a major priority this administration considered worthy of their serious attention to secure a resolution more then a suggestive photo option to offer the media attention . A very sad realization is the Motto Make America Great Again /A no-go compared to other bigger motivations steered to wallet profits

    He was drinking as a teenager and has matured out since then, all he had to do was say that, instead he pulls out a full on obvious blatant lie. That woman Ford didn’t come out years ago because she didn’t want her parents knowing that she was drinking. She showed all sorts of proof and recalled as much as she can... she. was. 100%. credible. and. obviously. truthful.

  • thats just like ur opinion man

    Wow if these women made the crap up im in shock, why would you do that no matter what??? I always think the Republicans are lying but this just seemed obvious that he was innocent Republicans are always bad liars. The guy is weird to say the least but if he didnt do it i have to say theres some serious wickedness going on. idk

  • thats just like ur opinion man

    Crazy weird but if he didnt do it, evil on the part of liberals. I cant be bothered with politics but i tend to think Republicans are piggies. I am a Jimmy Carter loving left Christian but thats an outdated model. Atticus Finch got me thinking at a young age on how i would like to speak. Its sad that men dont value that and hoot and holler for the kind of tone and garbage that comes out of Trumps mouth. I dont what i support anymore but George Carlin just said its worthless.

    The fact that he couldn't answer a question YES or NO or even directly shows he's guilty. In addition to that HE'S A JUDGE he knows how to act. Don't reply to me because I know you republicans and trump supporters are neurotic and slow so DO NOT bother sharing your unwanted opinions.

  • Destinee Hernandez
    Destinee Hernandez 5 months ago

    Everyone who is accusing him of being unprofessional already has the biased assumption that he is guilty and was lying through the whole thing- of course it would seem unprofessional in that light. So what if he has emotions? So what if they came to the surface? Why is the ability to hide emotions under pressure a professional trait anyway? This is a personal issue haunting him day and night, I think he has the right to feel emotional and stressed. You want to see what lying looks like? Watch Bill Clinton. That is someone trying very very hard to come across as smooth and calm as possible with a little frustration bubbling up under the surface. What you see here with Kavanaugh is a man who knows he didn't do it, so he didn't feel like he had to be anything but himself. I wouldn't be surprised if his own emotion caught him off guard. And it worked- many of us did see how genuine his hearing was, even some liberals.

    Supreme Court nominees required a super majority of 60 votes for appointment to the supreme court for roughly 40 years. The Democrats, in a historically stupid move, changed this to a simple majority of 51 votes in 2013, called the Nuclear Option. Now it's come back to haunt them. Talk about chickens coming home to roost.

I want to be objective and I want to see him in the worst light possible, but I've checked several left-wing sites and all I see is the same clips. Please and thank you.

All because these "news" networks told you to hate him? You people can't even do your own research? Please settle down... You need to stop treating people with different opinions like they're evil. Honestly, you're really going to regret your hateful, closed mindedness in the future, because it's immortalized by the internet. You can't take it back now.

Her opinions are just that. No truth. It’s not a news show it’s more of a comedy sketch circus.

    There is one thing that bothers me about this case. It hasn't happened yet, but I wonder if Brett Kavanaugh will sue for defamation and slander of his character. In my mind that would determine whether or not these allegations are true or false. If someone's slandered your character like this wouldn't you care enough to make it right and prove them wrong? Time will tell.

    Yes, it was an "historic day, " Rachel. You and the rest of the left-wing lunatic fringe did an excellent job of embarrassing the entire nation yet again. What is this, generational amnesia? This sleazy cheap shot did not work against Clarence Thomas. Why in the world would your ilk think it might work the second time around? Perhaps, you can tell us what imbecile thought it a good idea to have Garth Algar's twin sister appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee with some bizarre, vague, unsubstantiated, utterly ridiculous tale about an inchoate sexual misadventure she supposedly had in HIGH SCHOOL!!!. What is wrong with you people? More importantly, what is wrong with you, Rachel? Does this seem at all like objective reporting? You're not a news reporter. You're an insidious toady hired by nabobs to manipulate the political opinion of sheep. Find something else to do with your time, because you're not even good at this. About all you have accomplished by abetting this fiasco is made America look like a nation of neurotic buffoons. You likely also managed to lose the Democrats nearly all of the male vote for quite some time.

    you know what, if a man makes a stupid comment as a teenager or supposedly committed a crime when he was a teen... are we to believe it is the measure of who he 40 years later. ?????!!!!!!!! The Democrats and their followers are unbelievable. No, I will not convict a 50-year-old man based on something he supposedly did ôr said when he was a stupid as a college kid . Especially something that was never reported. Unless of course, it was murder. Let's face it, if you really dig into every government officials college days it will not be pretty and you will have to tear DC DOWN. Then the stupid b ask if he ever got super drunk in college? That's the stupidest question ever. And she posed the question in such as to imply sobriety is the norm in college. Lastly, if he was so drunk he doesn't know what happened, then how can he be held responsible for anything. Ok, Dems we get it, there are no genders, men can breastfeed, all men are sexual harassers, abortion is about a woman's health, men can breastfeed, white men are all racist. and wake up in the morning trying to find someone to discriminate against, and the only people that can save the world are White women because they never tell A lie and are the most selfless and compassionate people on the planet. Now, if you expect we rational people to buy all of that, then you also expect us to believe that Rachel Maddow didn't get pissy drunk in college and harass her share of women.

    He looks pathetic ... like a frustrated unruly child. Wah, wah, wah ... totally immature and unprofessional. He is destroying himself. "I still like beer" , "What do you like to drink?" He's all over the place and can't control himself. "BEERS"? How old are we? It's so typical for the guilty to throw it back on the person asking! He looks so pathetic! This is a supreme court judge ppotential?? It's embarassing!
