Under its new editor the Daily Mail appears to have caught a full blown case of the #TrumpDerangementSyndrome normally associated with those on the left. Thus it splashed with Kavanaugh’s Diary from 1982 which it claimed could be a smoking gun.Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
Brett Kavanaugh himself served up the diary to show when he was around that summer. Not that his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford can remember when he groped her. Or where. Or who drove her there. Or home. Or much at all really.
The Dems flag up one day when Kavanaugh inserted in his diary a note that he and six mates were drinking “brewskies” - beer. And since two of those six were named by Ford as being their on that fateful evening The Dems say this could be “the date”.
Hang on! Ford has changed her story several times but now says that on that date she was in a house with Kavanaugh, three other boys and another girl. So 4 guys two girls. Kavanaugh’s diary details a party with seven guys.
I suppose that in 1982 he might have changed 4 guys two girls to seven guys in order to defend himself against an allegation that he had a premonition would be made 36 years later as he tried to get himself on SCOTUS? Or alternatively this latest smoking gun is no evidence at all. Ford’s story – as it stands – still has more holes than Swiss cheese and – as things stand – Kavanaugh is thus innocent as not proven guilty.
But don’t tell those ugly crowds screaming for his blood because a woman must always be believed. #Metoo hysteria has cross fertilised with #TrumpDerangementSyndrome to produce something utterly toxic.
