Justice Kavanaugh just returned to coaching high school girls and the Washington Post roasted him

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s media profile has been relatively quiet since his confirmation hearings gripped the nation with tales of excessive drinking and sexual assault. After President Trump and Republicans in the Senate managed to ram him through to a lifetime seat on the court by crippling the FBI investigation into the allegations against him, Kavanaugh has been trying to escape the stigma surrounding the massive public revulsion against his angry denials in the #MeToo era.

Part of Kavanaugh’s attempts to counteract the accusations of drunken sexually-aggressive behavior during his confirmation hearings was the invitation of members of the Catholic girls basketball team he coaches to attend the hearings and serve as a visual reminder of his supposed wholesomeness.

With the Supreme Court justice now trying to return to normalcy, Kavanaugh has resumed his coaching duties, an event that is now considered newsworthy due to his newfound notoriety and his claims during his confirmation hearings that the allegations against him could prevent him from ever being able to coach the team again.

The news even warranted an article in The Washington Post. However, the newspaper immediately drew fire from angry conservatives when they discovered that the story was posted in the paper’s “Public Safety” section, according to an article on The Hill.

Numerous Twitter posts were sent attacking the paper for its liberal media bias, assuming that the placement of the minor article was a snarky inside joke by an editorial staff seeking to avenge a loss in the fight to keep Kavanaugh off the court.

The Post has since moved the article out of the section into the regular news category. While the “accidental” categorization of the story blew the minds of Kavanaugh’s right-wing defenders, his progressive opponents are giggling at the appropriateness of the mistake.
