Someone might want to check on Senator Lindsey Graham.
He lashed out at Democrats during Brett Kavanaugh’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. In an eye-popping and lengthy tirade, Graham called Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court candidate “the most unethical sham since [he’s] been in politics.”
Graham, who is not the first angry man to take the mic today, told Kavanaugh directly that he had “nothing to apologize for.” He also accused Senate Democrats of using Ford as a pawn in an attempt to destroy Kavanaugh, then push through their own candidate after the midterm elections.
(He did not, however, mention the myriad reasons why sexual assault victims might hesitate to come forward, nor the fact that Ford requested confidentiality when she first revealed her experience to Senator Dianne Feinstein.)
Of course, Graham yelled for 100 percent of his statement. Big day for men yelling.
