Brett Kavanaugh refuses to shake hand of shooting victim's father

https://www.theguardian.com/global/vide … ther-video

What cold lying hypocrites. Bragging about his daughters while snubbing a father whose daughter was murdered with one of his chief sponsor's (the NRA) WMD.

Ugly!

Oh c'mon.  It wasn't a meet and greet and the dude Tweeted that he was going to be there to protest the nomination of the judge.   

A handshake is an act friendship and peace.  This dude was there for hostile purposes.  The handshake offer was cynical and hypocritical.  It was basically a lie and attempt to hold him while he berated him.   I wouldn't have shook his hand either.

The whole situation was nakedly political. Make of it what you will but you know damned well it wasn't an offer of a handshake out of goodwill.  It was an attempt to corner and harangue the judge.  You know it, I know it and every sentient person knows it.

HE was there because he lost his 14yr old daughter to via mass shooting. That is why he was there. The man about to the the interpreter of laws for life should take the high ground.

A hand shake could never be as violent and dangerous as an assault rifle.

That's not just hypocritical. It says more about about the judge's intent more that all the straight face lies and deception he's goona utter over the next few days.

Madness!

It isn't even evident Kavanaugh knew who he was as security moved to intervene. 

Seriously, the day was marked with loud protests and death threats against the judge.  There were even outbursts in the hearing chamber.  The judge was surrounded by security and an unidentified stranger wanted to take hold of the man's hand.  He'd have had to be insane to offer it.   It wasn't the right time or the right place for a handshake and certainly not from an unknown individual.

I get that you don't like him.  A lot of people don't.  But this is a big, fat nothing burger.

He was there for hostile purposes.  To pretend that this was nothing more than an innocent handshake is intellectually dishonest.

Yeah, he is there to interpret the laws as they are written.  He is not there to rewrite laws based on a subjective view of what is the high ground. The only ground he should take is the ground the law tells him to take. 

If judges can just rewrite laws to mean anything, we live in a autocratic regime ruled by nine SCOTUS dictators.

Oh please Do you think the democrats asking Kevanaugh questions wants to see this man become the next Supreme Court Justice. Should they be deemed the enemy too?

That is sooo Trumpian. A grief stricken father with a different opinion is deemed enemy.

Cold!

No, they don't want him.  And conservatives don't want liberal justices.  This has been going on since before you or I were born.  So?

Again, there is no evidence that the judge even knew who the guy was.
