Hollywood Hatred of Kavanaugh Resurfaces in Clinton ‘Impeachment’ Miniseries


The Nineteen Nineties are again and the ugly Clinton scandals are woven into FX’s Impeachment: American Crime Story, with the primary focus of the mini-series being President Invoice Clinton’s sexual exploitation of Monica Lewinsky. With many key gamers in as we speak’s political panorama being concerned within the saga, Ryan Murphy’s collection appeared to work in a success towards Supreme Court docket Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Within the episode which aired on October 5 titled “Do You Hear What I Hear?”, it’s Christmastime in 1997 and Choose Kenneth Starr (Dan Bakkedahl), who was the unbiased counsel accountable for investigating the Clintons, is proven assembly along with his authorized group to find out if they’ve sufficient proof to advocate impeachment.

The consensus appears to be no, with Jackie Bennett (Darren Goldstein) preventing to maintain the case open and asking future Supreme Court docket Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a younger lawyer on Starr’s group, if he agrees. Maybe as a nod to liberal obsessions with sexual assault allegations at Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court docket affirmation hearings, the script has Kavanaugh (Alan Starzinski) saying, “I by no means wish to take ‘no’ for a solution…” It was an odd flip of phrase that caught out like a sore thumb.


Jackie: We’re failures if we give up. What am I– the one one who sees this? Huh? Come on. Kavanaugh, huh? You do not assume we must always simply give up?

Brett Kavanaugh: I by no means wish to take “No” for a solution, however, Jackie, there is not a path ahead right here. 

Jackie: Oh, nice.

Have been the writers hoping the viewers considered the smear marketing campaign towards Kavanaugh and the try made by liberals to color him as a serial rapist through the use of that line? The AV Club picked up what they have been placing down in “Stray Observations.”

MovieMaker Magazine additionally reported the road was intentional:

The collection’ showrunner, Sarah Burgess, confirmed that it was certainly Brett Kavanaugh — the identical man now sitting on the Supreme Court docket. The “by no means wish to take no for a solution” line is a grim reference to the accusation by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her after they have been youngsters in 1982. He vehemently denied the accusation throughout his Supreme Court docket affirmation hearings.

That may be a lame try to maintain the false narrative alive that Kavanaugh is a sexual predator. The unproven allegations towards Kavanaugh throughout his affirmation hearings paled compared to people who have been confirmed towards Invoice Clinton.

However the Hollywood hatred of the Supreme Court docket Justice nonetheless runs sizzling. On Twitter, an account claiming to be Starzinski (seemingly confirmed by Now This’s Sean Morrow), the actor who portrayed Justice Kavanaugh, tweeted throughout the present, “Brett, in case you are studying this, go fuck your self.”

Sorry, Starzinski, Justice Kavanaugh has much more vital issues to be doing than studying your tweets, what with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court docket and all.
