In what has to be one of the most pathetic arguments against newly minted Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh was when confessed wife beater said he was afraid that Kavanaugh did not have the right temperament to be a Supreme Court Justice. But, does Tom Carper then believe Kavanaugh’s temperament would be suited for the Senate?
Probably not. Kavanaugh doesn’t beat his wife. The only time Kavanaugh did not display his normal quiet, cool demeanor was when Democrats trotted out false accusers and tried to destroy his reputation and his family. I wouldn’t respect a man that would not fight back against that.
“Mr. President, it gives me no joy to say what I am about to say, but the temperament that Judge Kavanaugh exhibited in the Judiciary Committee last week was not — it wasn’t just unacceptable for a Supreme Court justice, it would be unacceptable for a judge in Delaware,” Carper said.
“After witnessing the vitriol that Judge Kavanaugh spewed, how can any left-leaning cause think they would ever possibly get a fair shake from him should their case come before the Supreme Court?” Carper continued. “His temperament was clearly unbecoming of a judge let alone a Supreme Court justice.”
Carper admitted that he hit his wife across the face during a 1998 interview with a journalist, despite denying the allegation while first running for Congress in 1982.
“Did I slap my wife 20 years ago? Yes,” Carper told reporter Celia Cohen. “Do I regret it? Yes. Would I do it again? No.”
The New York Post reported in 1982 that Carper hit his wife so hard that he gave her a black eye. Carper called the story “totally false.”
If it weren’t so tragic, I’d be laughing my glutinous maximus off right now.
