Pinocchio's Galore

Mike Reed - July 13, 2018

Democrats are hopelessly divided on finding an effective attack on Judge Kavanaugh.

To make matters worse, the attacks they have tried are getting destroyed by fact checkers.

Let’s take a look at how the Dems fared going after Judge Kavanaugh in the first week:

  • The New York Times concluded Democrats “overstate” and “exaggerat[e]” Judge Kavanaugh’s position on Obamacare.
    •  NYT: “As they try to block his nomination to the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats have exaggerated Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s hostility to the Affordable Care Act in his public statements and writings.”
  • The Washington Post handed out four Pinocchio’s for the “thinly sourced” bizarre conspiracies that Justice Kennedy somehow maliciously coordinated with President Trump.
    • WaPo: “It would be explosive if Kennedy’s decision to vote a certain way or to retire was based on Deutsche Bank’s dealings with Trump more than a decade ago. Scratching below the surface, there’s no evidence to justify these theories.”
  • The Wall Street Journal ripped the political left for smearing Judge Kavanaugh with a false claim of guilt by association involving a court of appeals judge who retired amidst harassment claims.  
    • WSJ: “The Ultraviolet sleaze-slingers have no evidence that Mr. Kavanaugh knew about Judge Kozinski’s behavior and no witnesses to anything of the sort. They merely have insinuations that in the age of social media can spread around the world before the truth can even get a hearing.”
  • The Washington Post issued more Pinocchio’s to Dems for the claim that Judge Kavanaugh thinks a President is immune from the law, calling the attacks “an extreme distortion.”
    • “Their tweets merit Two Pinocchio’s, although we considered giving Three. To say Kavanaugh is Trump’s ‘get-out-of-jail free card’ is an extreme distortion of what he’s written.”

Not so good…

On the other hand, Democrats did land some truthful “criticism” on the judge for being a big fan of baseball, having “Brett” as a first name, and being the treasurer of the “Keg City Club” in his younger years.

Whether these accurate devastating attacks will resonate with the American people remains to be seen.
