The Kavanaugh Hearings - The Faces Of Every Woman In This Image

The Kavanaugh Senate Hearings began today with Trump's Senate Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, after listening to the statement by one of his alleged victims, made his own statement.

Sometimes on the verge of breaking down, sometimes belligerent and accusative, his statement came across more as a rant, including as it did waves of irrelevant reminiscences of his childhood and his family. Effectively, his main defence fell on two points:

  • I can't be mysogynistic, I hire a lot of women;
  • I can't be a rapist, as I keep a calendar;
  • I can't be a sex offender, because I teach basketball.

The faces of the women behind him, we think, tell a different story - and they're supposed to be on his side.
