With that thought, here’s whatZ happening.

We were Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies. We don’t think he should be confirmed.
H/T WaPo
Probably too late for these former associates to tell their side of the story.
Time will tell whether this is a flawed appointment. Like the overturning of Roe v Wade with Kavenaugh being the swing vote.

And,
The New York Times has destroyed the most important myth about Trump — and exposed the breadth of his lies and corruption
H/T Raw Story

Finally,
Trump mocks Ford, Kavanaugh’s accuser

Finally,
GOP operatives fear Trump is oblivious to how badly the Republicans will do in the midterms: ‘He’s totally delusional’
H/T Raw Story
Best quote of the article:
“President Trump has been putting out a lot of optimistic tweets about the midterm elections but there is a real concern among Republican operatives and donors he is totally delusional about the chances of taking back the House,” Reston explained.

“She went on to add that Trump may be in the dark because no one close to him is willing to tell him the truth.”
