In a public apology to the new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump said he was sorry that Kavanaugh’s wife and his daughters had to witness their father deny a slew of sexual assault allegations on national television.
‘A man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. You, sir, under historic scrutiny were proven innocent,’ Trump told the nation.

A beautiful, beautiful moment in our country’s history.
America has at long last taken a deliberate stance against the increasing belligerence of the Left.
Congratulations, Brett Kavanaugh.

However, not everyone was pleased with Trump’s endorsement and took to Twitter to criticise the move:
Women who support Trump and Kavanaugh are some of the most damaged people on the planet.

Trump called Kavanaugh “flawless”. But his intemperate and partisan tirade at the Senate Judiciary Committee should have disqualified him and 2400 law school professors signed a letter underscoring this. The Court is now tarnished as long as he sits there. https://t.co/9G1kLBx92g

I don’t care what your politics you know the Kavanaugh nomination process was bookended by 2 speeches Kavanaugh gave at the White House in front of Donald Trump where he pathetically sucked up to Donald Trump & lied about Donald Trump & you saw it. Brett Kavanaugh is disgusting.
