The main news story of the week has been Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing, after the US Supreme Court nominee was accused of sexual misconduct by three women.
Kavanaugh denied the allegations at the trial, with his testimony following that of Christine Blasey Ford’s. The research professor accused Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge of assaulting her at a high school party in 1982, when she was 15 and they were 17.
In an emotional testimony, in which she struggled to hold back tears, Blasey Ford said the incident had “drastically affected her life.”
Yet Kavanaugh responded to her words in Trump-esque fashion. During the 40-minute questioning by Democratic senators and a sex crimes prosecutor, a seriously pissed-off Kavanaugh managed to blame the editor of his high school yearbook, interrupt a female senator, and call Democrats an “embarrassment.”
He also managed to find the time to read out his college admissions essay, as well as show off his 1982 calendar.
Although the trial was painful to watch, at least the internet managed to diffuse some of the tension by turning Kavanaugh’s angry face into a meme.
Please send Brett Kavanaugh memes. They are making this big steaming pile of bullshit a little more bearable. pic.twitter.com/WHwY34ZuvN
