    the funny thing is Trump sees this as a win but the truth is its a loss for him and the GOP because if they lose in 2020 it means they have now stonewalled their own protests. And you can bet Trump will be crying when his domestic terrorist friends at the KKK have to pay up to wave their tiki torches around DC.

    Justice Kegstand was not "rejected" for a clumsy teenage overture.

His good friend Mark joined 'Bart' on the bed, too. Mark jumping on the bed is what accidentally shifted Brett's weight such that Dr. Ford was able to wiggle out from underneath him and escape.

    That is Dr. Ford's story. Your summary makes me think you didn't read anything at all or listen to her testimony.

    That is why charges of attempted rape entered the conversation. Are you part of the crowd going along with the evangelical spin of the incident "Brett Kavanaugh respected that girl's wishes, otherwise he'd have raped her. Therefore, no crime happened and our guy was a gentleman falsely accused!"???
    I don't doubt something bad happened to Dr. Ford at some point. But yeah, even if all that was 100% accurate no crime happened. She wasn't raped. She had an intense encounter that could have gone that way, but it didn't. End of story.

    Feinstein wanted to torpedo Kavanaugh to stick it to Trump and drum up political theater. She played dirty, and it backfired in spectacular fashion.

    According to her story, they forced her into a room and locked the door. Then Kavanaugh pushed her onto the bed and jumped on top of her, clamping his hand over her mouth while he groped her and tore at her clothing.

    Assault (threat of bodily harm)? Battery (physically hitting or attacking someone)? Kidnapping (seizing or detaining a person against their will)? Sexual assault (intentionally sexually touching another person against their will)?

    I am not a lawyer, but those sound like crimes to me...

    Idiot Trump had an ~interesting~ interview on 60 minutes. The morning shows have had plenty to talk about.

    I'm waiting for some reporter to throw up his/her hands during one of these interviews and say "F it! I can't take the bullshit any more!" and walk out

    So now, it doesn't matter if Ford's story is true or not because "we won!" What an asshole!
