Brett Kavanaugh is officially a Supreme Court Justice, a depressing fact that must be laid squarely at the feet of the Republica Party and specifically Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who refused to heed the widespread call from American citizens to reject Kavanaugh’s confirmation in light of the credible allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him.
President Trump, for his part, has defended his new justice and disingenuously tried to paint the accusations as a hoax and partisan smear perpetrated by the Democrats against an innocent man.
In reality, Christ Blasey Ford and the other women who claim Kavanaugh victimized them came forward out of a sense of patriotism and a desire to keep a sexual predator off the nation’s highest court. Their courage was rewarded with death threats and mockery from the Trumpian right.

Now, Trump has added insult to injury. Today he appeared in front of the press and offered an apology to Kavanaugh on behalf of the American people. As the president spoke, Justice Kavanaugh lurked nearby, looking deeply uncomfortable and guilty throughout the proceedings.
It was another shameful performance from Trump, who has a pathological inability to apologize for any of his own numerous misdeeds, but who apparently has no problem apologizing to an alleged sexual predator on the behalf of others. The truth is, Trump has no right to speak “on behalf” of most Americans because most Americans don’t want Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh doesn’t deserve an apology, the American people do.
