Joe Scarborough: Kavanaugh Hearings ‘Were A Disaster for the Democratic Party’

McConnell disputed the President's assessment on Wednesday.

Fresh off the long and tumultuous confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was prepared to force Democrats' hands and keep them in Washington for weeks to confirm 15 judges sitting in limbo. But he didn't say that was such great news.

"I would describe that as noisy democracy", Jacobs said. An effort clearly to try and intimidate us. As he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, "A majority of my 48 law clerks over the last 12 years have been women".

"It's a great frustration", he said.

Even before the confirmation, Kavanaugh's opponents had a comeback line, printed on the back of jackets they wore to the Capitol: "November is coming". "If Justice Roberts sits on the complaints, then they will reside in a kind of purgatory and will never be adjudicated", said New York University law professor Stephen Gillers. It is equally appropriate for senators to vote against a nominee whose judicial philosophy they oppose.

"It's turned our base on fire", McConnell said about the battle, which he's called a political gift.

The GOP leader also split from Trump to defend Democratic Sen. The takeaway - for Trump anyway - is that mocking someone who shared her experience of being sexually assaulted is that it was a winning strategy. Feinstein has denied the leak.

McConnell praised Republicans for holding firm in the face of protests.

The swearing-in ceremony for Judge Kavanaugh was held Sunday at the White House, and Donald Trump being the gentleman he is, took it upon himself to apologize to the judge for all the accusations and trouble he has received.

The Trump administration made it easier to buy these plans -- allowing people to buy coverage for just under a year, versus the 90-day limit imposed by the Obama administration. Past the gross nature of the republicans trying to shrug off a sexual assault, in doing so, they are contradicting conservative schools of thought.

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough (pictured above left) seemed disheartened Thursday over new polls showing Republican voters' enthusiasm spiking in response to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's turbulent confirmation process. Democracy isn't always easy, but voting is.

"Far be it from me to complain about obstruction, I've done my share of it". And it comes less than a month before pivotal midterm elections that will determine which party controls Congress.

"We have to have the truth", she said. Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas have been among those mentioned. In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "I don't know a thing", he said.

Trump has now put his stamp on the court with his second justice in as many years.

"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said. "I think it's going to be a mixed bag".

For the record, Trump was one of many Republicans to attack Franken mercilessly (while ignoring any such actions from anyone in their own party, ) proving he's not above "ruining" a man's life in these circumstances when there are partisan gains to be had.

He's expecting a "relatively lively" lame duck session after the election and did not shy away from a possible federal government shutdown over funding for Trump's border wall. "We don't do anything illegal", said Holder.

"The public got mad at us and felt sympathy for President Clinton", he said.

He said his approval rating has nearly doubled since the Kavanaugh confirmation.
