Speaking at a convention of U.S. police chief Monday in Orlando, Florida, President Donald Trump declared that the people who accused Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault were “evil” for daring to lodge such accusations against such a “flawless” person.
Trump began his comments on Kavanaugh with what sounded like a victory lap, patting himself on the back for nominating the judge for highest court in the land:
“I decided on Brett. I said he’s flawless. This is a flawless person, the best student, the best scholar, the great intellect, incredible record over many years.”
Flawless? Hardly. Kavanaugh himself admitted to some less than stellar behavior as a student in high school and while at Yale.
The president also said he had expected Kavanaugh’s confirmation to be a “piece of cake,” but then the accusations of sexual assault came to light:
“It was very, very unfair what happened to him. False charges, false accusations, horrible statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about.
“It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil. And he toughed it out.”
Ah yes, be sure and demonize your opponents every chance you get. That’s always a good way to keep people divided and at each other’s throats, which has been Trump’s goal since he was elected. By keeping the country at war with itself, he can more freely destroy the very institutions of democracy this nation was founded upon. And that’s a plus for any would-be dictator because it allows him to grab more power for himself in the name of security and safety.
Interesting, isn’t it, how Trump is eager to blame women, just as he always does. No wonder so many women are registering and voting in record numbers. And that’s his worst nightmare come true.
