Jimmy Carter: Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court was a "very serious mistake"

Jimmy Carter Says Brett Kavanaugh ‘Unfit’ To Serve As Supreme Court Justice
The former president slammed Kavanaugh for losing “his cool” during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month.

“Whether or not [Kavanaugh] attempted to rape a woman ... I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing,” Carter can be heard telling the students in a video posted to Facebook.

“I think most of the American people were not in favor of his being on the Supreme Court,” he added. “Judging by his previous legal career, he was very qualified. But ... I think he did attack her sexually and I know that I saw him lose his cool.”

President Donald Trump’s most recent Supreme Court nomination isn’t the only decision Carter has spoken out against. The longtime Democrat told students at another Emory event last month that he would like to change “all” of Trump’s policies.

“If I were foolish enough to feel I could be president again, I think the first thing I would do would be to change all of the policies that President Trump has initiated,” he said.

Stan Mack, formerly of the Village Voice, writes first ever comic strip letter to the editor of NYT

Acosta describes crowd reaction: He looked at me and ran his thumb across his throat.

The disturbing part of Trump’s jokes about Gianforte was the effect on the crowd. I saw one young man in the crowd making body slam gestures. He looked at me and ran his thumb across his throat. I talked to him after the rally was over. He couldn’t stop laughing.

Cutting Social Security - Was ALWAYS The GOP Plan.

"Potus tonight applauded the assault on an American journalist who works for the Guardian"

Trump on Gianforte assaulting reporter Jacobs: "Never wrestle him. You understand that. Never. Any guy that can do a bodyslam, he's my kind of" -- crowd cheers -- "he's my guy. I shouldn't say this."

"I had heard that he bodyslammed a reporter. And he was way up...and I said...I said oh this is terrible he's gonna lose...then I said wait a minute, I know Montana pretty well, I think it might help him. And it did."

A cartoon from Canada:

Fugelsang: Saudis say they didn't do it and they can prove that because it's not on their calendar.

@SenatorCollins

The murder of Jamal Khashoggi as described by the Turkish press is an atrocity. We must get to the bottom of this, and if the Saudis killed Mr. Khashoggi, those responsible must be held accountable.
