Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

Trump appologizes to Kavanaugh at White House swearing in ceremony

Within a half hour of the start of his first oral argument on the Supreme Court Tuesday, Kavanaugh had already proved he wouldn't be a silent presence on the bench like Justice Clarence Thomas, who went through a similarly bruising confirmation process in 1991 but was famously quiet during questioning.

Kavanaugh joins the Supreme Court today after he was sworn in at a private ceremony on Saturday and a public ceremony on Monday, report the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post in stories here and here.

Many analysts predict Democrats will be able to take control of the House of Representatives, but it is far from clear if they can also capture the Senate. It was clear Democrats would lose, and a real victory was never feasible since the measure would have died anyway in the Republican-run House. They're fuming over what they see as Democrats' defamation of an upstanding, beer-loving Christian, and promise payback come the midterm elections on 6th November.

"This business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is", McConnell told the Associated Press.

Republicans and defenders of the rule say it offers an affordable coverage option for people who don't want an Affordable Care Act plan.

The public nature of a case a year ago involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual.

The GOP leader told the AP he doesn't think the acrimonious battle over confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court amid sexual misconduct allegations made the gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women any worse.

"Seriously, Hillary?" was the reaction of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded previous year when a shooter - who was a registered Democrat - targeted a Congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia. Among those to receive backlash over their Kavanaugh vote was Sen.

"Just over half of both men and women say they are more likely to vote this fall because of the Kavanaugh controversy".

A Republican in CT who is running for Senator Chris Murphy's seat seems to have benefitted from the rancorous confirmation battle. He pointed out that Murkowski won election as a write-in vote in 2010. She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado insisted it was actually the Democrats who had done themselves no favours with the vote.

While the president certainly bashed the senator for her vote, some of her colleagues in the Republican Party have said that Murkowski, like any other senator, had the right to believe - and vote - the way she chooses. "Nobody's gonna beat her". Lisa Murkowski of Alaska despite her opposition to Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".
