Husband reacts to ‘repulsive’ claims wife flashed white power hand sign during Kavanaugh hearing

Our politics have become so incredibly stupid that a hand randomly placed across a forearm can launch a political firestorm and trend for hours on social media.

Amid the left’s frantic opposition to President Donlad Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, which saw Democrat senators and their base embarrass the nation as they unleashed chaos to mar the opening of Tuesday’s confirmation hearing, the unlikely star of the day was Zina Bash, the former Kavanaugh clerk who was accused of flashing white supremacy hands signs on national television.

Seriously, the anti-Trump left have devolved into a walking, breathing freak show to suggest that Bash, who was seated directly behind Kavanaugh, was flashing a white power sign.

The backlash to the ludicrous claim was so over the top, with some even mentioning Bash’s child, that her husband felt compelled to respond to the “vicious conspiracy theory.”


United States Attorney John Bash took to Twitter to note that his wife is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side — and that her grandparents were Holocaust survivors.

“The attacks today on my wife are repulsive,” he began in a 3-part tweet. “Everyone tweeting this vicious conspiracy theory should be ashamed of themselves. We weren’t even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing.”


And despite the husband’s appeal from the heart, unhinged, dare we say unstable, people like actor Tom Arnold persisted:

“Your wife Zina Bash straight up gave the White Power sign to camera today for Steven Miller & her buds watching #KavanaughConfirmation on tv. My bud @ManInTheHoody has the tape for you. Truth hurts. @realDonaldTrump is a racist too. Sorry I recently found out my ex was racist too,” Arnold tweeted.

And Arnold was not the only one to dismiss Mr. Bash’s earnest response.

As for the depravity on the left, behold:

The insanity was summed up nicely came by National Review’s Jeff Blehar.

“Today I am being told by dozens of insistent Twitter geniuses that the Mexican-American granddaughter of Holocaust survivors was actually flashing Nazi white power symbols at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings because of her arm posture. Our politics is stupid beyond repair,” he shared.

For the record, according to the Trump Resistance, the OK hand signal is forever more relegated to the bigoted trash heap of American politics:
