David Catron, writing in The American Spectator, tells readers that the embarrassing behavior of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee at the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “demonstrated why their party lost control of Congress, and that they still can’t be trusted with a majority in either house.” He writes:
During the first two days of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee demonstrated why their party lost control of Congress, and that they still can’t be trusted with a majority in either house.
They openly encouraged demonstrators to disrupt the hearings with such disgusting behavior that Judge Kavanaugh’s wife was forced to lead his children out of the room on the first day. These are the very Democrats, remember, who routinely lecture President Trump on matters of decorum.
Their antics were so transparently scripted that even Slate pointed out that the first interruption of the first day’s proceedings came before the Chairman could finish his opening sentence.
When the Democrats finally began interrogating the nominee, it became even clearer that they were acting in bad faith.
The confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice is a serious undertaking. But the Democrats have shown themselves to be utterly irresponsible in the discharge of their constitutional duties in this process.
