This brought a tear to mine eye.
This guy got done dirtier than anyone ever done got done dirty.
He says it didn’t change who he is, but I have a hard time believing that. And don’t want to believe it.
I want him to seek out revenge on the people who did this to him. And he has every moral right to do so.
In fact, he has a moral obligation to do so.
President Donald Trump began Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s swearing-in ceremony by apologizing on behalf of America.
“On behalf of the nation, I’d like to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you’ve been forced to endure,” Trump said.
The president delivered remarks ahead of the Kavanaugh swearing-in ceremony at the White House and acknowledged that his opening statement was unusual.
“Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception,” he said.
Addressing Kavanaugh specifically, the president said, “You sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.”
The entire room of Trump supporters and staff applauded the entire Kavanaugh family.
The president also thanked Senate Majority Mitch McConnell for his efforts, urging him to stand to be recognized.
Yeah, I don’t like the guy – or I didn’t like the guy – but he did a beautiful thing here.
When people applauded for him, Trump said “I think that’s the biggest hand he’s ever received.”
This one’s for you, Mitch.
After taking the oath of office, Kavanaugh spoke, vowing to serve the law in the Supreme Court.
“I will always be humbled and proud to sit in Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court,” he said.
Kavanaugh also thanked McConnell for his “leadership and steady resolve” and the “wisdom and fairness” of Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley
He also singled out Senators Jon Kyl, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, and Joe Manchin for gratitude.
He should have singled out Murkowski and the entire State of Alaska… for revenge.
But I guess Trump already did that.
“The Supreme Court is a team of nine and I will always be a team player on the team of nine,” Kavanaugh said.
Kavanaugh also noted that all of his law clerks were women, a historic first on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh also thanked Americans for their prayers on his family’s behalf.
“Ashley and I are grateful for the prayers from the thousands and thousands of people we have heard from throughout America,” he said.
The newly appointed Supreme Court justice also paid special tribute to his wife.
“She is a rock. I thank God every day for Ashley in my family,” Kavanaugh said.
Kavanaugh acknowledged that the confirmation was “contentious” and “emotional” but said that he wished to be a force for “stability and unity” on the Supreme Court.
“I was not appointed to appoint one party or one interest, but to serve one nation,” he said.
Trump is the nation, my dude.
If it was not for that one man, this nation would not even still exist.
