MSNBC did its part in carrying water for the Democratic Party’s cutthroat campaign of sabotage against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the likes of which has not been seen since Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Looking to further sully an otherwise impeccable reputation, the network ran a clip of Kavanaugh joking in a 2015 speech at the Columbus School of Law, “What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep. That’s been a good thing for all of us.”
Having put the cleverly edited smear out there, Sen. Elizabeth Warren took the baton from MSNBC and ran with it.
“I can’t imagine any parent accepting this view. Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?” the shameless Massachusetts Democrat tweeted.

Turns out, MSNBC cut Kavanaugh’s remarks leading up to the comment, where he indicated that he’s talking about his three friends, Fox News reported.
“I, by coincidence, three classmates of mine at Georgetown Prep were graduates of this law school in 1990 and are really really good friends of mine,” Kavanaugh said.
He went on to say that “they are still good friends of mine as recently as this weekend when we were all on email together,” which is when Kavanaugh joked “what happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep.”
Speaking of Thomas, ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd, looking to give MSNBC a little competition in smearing Kavanaugh, called the Supreme Court justice a “sexual predator” on Twitter, suggesting Kavanaugh is of the same cloth.
It was despicable and outrageous what happened to Anita Hill more than 25 years ago, and a sexual predator was given a lifetime seat on the SC. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself in 2018.

The reaction online to the edited clip and Warren’s eagerness to propagate its very misleading message was eerily similar to another Democratic senator.
Like Sen. Warren today, Sen. Harris was also caught passing around a deceptively-edited video in order to smear Judge Kavanaugh.
It's shameful, but not surprising. Harris got Four Pinocchios for doing it. Sen. Warren should also.

The reference to Sen. Kamala Harris is in regard to the California Democrat taking Kavanaugh quoting a plaintiff in a 2013 court case and attributing it to the nominee.
A member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, she tweeted a clip earlier this month of Kavanaugh using the term “abortion-inducing drugs,” which she dishonestly called as “a dog whistle for going after birth control.”
Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter that were quite intense:

Oh FFS. I smoked weed and skipped school in high school. I’m glad that what happened in high school stays in high school. I’m not that person anymore, and I’d rather not have to disclose that in any employment related venue. Y’all are grasping.

Implying the guy committed sexual assault because he made a joke about HS indiscretions (likely involving drinking and other normal behavior). Hope you are all proud of yourselves. https://t.co/SWOScPNqdm
