Celebrity reaction to the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee:

“The Democrats will do anything in their power to win no matter what, this time you’ve lost and will keep losing, the American people are a lot smarter than you are, we can see the truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God. #ConfirmJudgeKavanaughNow.”— actor and Congressional candidate Antonio Sabato Jr.

“Guess when you have everything to lose, you gotta cry your way thru your testimony for effect. Funny, if #DrFord had done that, they’d call her extremely emotional. But #Kavanagh’s tears are cuz he’s passionate. ????#TeamDl #KanavaughHearings” — comedian DL Hughley, via Twitter.

“Today’s hearing reminds us that to really tell a woman’s story, one must begin with a 15-minute preamble from an elderly man about why her story is suspicious. #KavanaughHearings” — TV personality-comedian Samantha Bee, via Twitter.

Today is the day we are silent no more. All of us. I’m scared to post this. I can’t imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.” — actress Busy Philipps, accompanied by an old photo of herself, on Instagram.

“Out of the blue, a hero steps up and I’m in awe. I know the pain of these kinds of memories, Dr. Ford. Memories that are indelibly imprinted on your brain no matter how many years go by. I, like millions of women across America, are behind you and thank you profoundly.” — actress Sally Field, via Twitter.

    Christine Ford is a mental case. Of course, the men weren’t interested in watching or listening to her LIES. This was a set up pure and simple by the democrats. This will come back to bite them in the butts in the midterms and the FBI will discover this week that Christine Ford is a fraud.

    Thank you Dr. Ford. It is sad to see a grown man that cannot admitt that when he was a kid that he did such awful thing and continued in the same pattern for his life. The thing for him to do is to say sorry he made a big mistake. I pray to God he get help for him self. Molly Ellios

    My take on all of this: A former coworker of Kavanaugh named Lynn Brooks said he was a violent boozer possibly even after high school, besides his earlier binge drinking and pinning down drunk girls in high schools, along with two other former accomplices.
    now that the statute of time limits is over, one of the other two men had in an interview admitted how the trio could evade cops in their small town USA after assaulting drunk teenagers. Of the three high school abusers in parties, Kavanaugh was highly educated while the other two were intellectually lacking and were also about a year younger than Kavanaugh.
