FACT CHECK: Is This a Photograph of a Wasted Brett Kavanaugh?

She alleged Kavanaugh forced her onto a bed, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes while he was heavily intoxicated, all while his friend Mark Judge watched.

But Senator Graham's authenticity and eloquence weren't the only ways he proved superior to the Republican committee members who questioned Judge Kavanaugh in his wake.

He called the Democrats' actions "the most unethical sham since I've been in politics". Boy, I hope you never get it.

"I hope you're on the Supreme Court", he added, "That's exactly where you belong". He said that a 35-year-old allegation should not become the new standard for withholding a nomination and that Democrats strategically dropped the accusation right before the hearing. It contains mildly objectionable language. "This is not about finding the truth between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, it's about delaying the hearing to get past the midterms", said Graham.

That is how women have been told to behave when they are angry: to not let anyone know, and to joke and to be sweet and rational and vulnerable.

Graham's defenses of Kavanaugh echo those of President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly called his nominee an "outstanding" person and slammed the allegations as a "con job" by Democrats to derail his confirmation.

He also offered kind words to Kavanaugh.

He began by calling out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for announcing 23 minutes after Trump nominated Kavanaugh that he would oppose the nominee with "everything I have", along with laying out the timeline of the Democratic Sen.

It also gives cover to red state Democrats like Sens.

Several women in the audience stood up when Ford finished testifying after more than four hours and said loudly, "Thank you, Dr. Ford!"

Kavanaugh whined, "I have been through hell and then some".

Kathleen Hall Jamieson, communications professor and director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, said some of Kavanaugh's statements "were more consistent with one's expectations of a partisan than a judge or prospective associate justice of the Supreme Court".

The FBI is now investigating the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
