If there’s one way to “disappoint” and “trigger” Democrats, it’s to announce support for one of three people. The most obvious is President Trump. Right behind him is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Last but not least is Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats go into full “triggered” mode the moment anyone in their tribe expresses support for any of these three.
Kentucky Senate candidate Amy McGrath had two of them nailed. She is adamantly opposed to President Trump and she’s running against Mitch McConnell. So far, so good, right? But when asked if she would have voted in favor of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the Democrat told The Courier-Journal of Louisville in an interview published this morning that she was “very concerned about Judge Kavanaugh, what I felt like were the far-right stances that he had” but that “there was nothing in his record that I think would disqualify him in any way.”
It was an honest and, frankly, correct answer as judicial confirmations are supposed to go. Lest we forget, there was a time not too long ago when a judge had to be a complete mess in order to not get a strong majority support by both sides of the aisle. Those days are gone. She’s a Democrat and therefore any defense of the monstrous justice President Trump nominated is a betrayal to everything her tribe holds dear.
After all, Christine Blasey-Ford was totally trustworthy, right?
But fear not, social justice warriors. There’s no need to camp outside McGrath’s house or throw milkshakes at her. She felt the pressure immediately and reversed herself hours later.
I know I disappointed many today with my initial answer on how I would have voted on Brett Kavanaugh. I will make mistakes and always own up to them. The priority is defeating Mitch McConnell.

The people of Kentucky who don’t like Mitch McConnell aren’t getting much of a choice on the side of the ballot. At this rate, Amy McGrath could end up being hated by nearly everyone.
