Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who withheld an unsubstantiated accusation against Kavanaugh until after his confirmation hearings were concluded. The President had at one point previously been conciliatory toward Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before Congress alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. Trump, at the time of the testimony, called Ford a "good witness" and said he respected her position very much.

"Can you believe that?"

"Did she leak that?"

"Everybody just smiled because they knew if it had been a Republican president and a Democratic Senate, they wouldn't have filled a vacancy", he said.

It's that political reality that democratic Senator Joe Manchin lives in as he faces a re-election fight against West Virginia State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. He had denied her allegation.

"It's not going to be from our caucus, I can tell you that", he said.

"Seriously, Hillary?" was the reaction of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded previous year when a shooter - who was a registered Democrat - targeted a Congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia.

But when asked again Sunday about it, he said different rules might apply if the same party controls the Senate and White House.

Kavanaugh, a veteran of such proceedings after 12 years on an influential USA appeals court, looked at ease as he asked several questions during two hours of lively oral arguments involving a federal sentencing law for repeat offenders.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace vouched for frequent guest and Democratic attorney Michael Avenatti on September 26 when his client Julie Swetnick came forward with claims-which she later changed-that Kavanaugh was involved with parties where gang rapes routinely occurred and he spiked girls' drinks.

Trump sees his success in getting Kavanaugh onto the court-tilting the crucial body to the right for potentially years to come-as one of the major successes of his two-year administration.

"Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception", Trump said.

President Donald Trump says his second summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un will have to wait until after next month's midterm elections. "If Justice Roberts sits on the complaints, then they will reside in a kind of purgatory and will never be adjudicated", said New York University law professor Stephen Gillers. "What the Democrats did to Brett and his family is a national embarrassment, a national disgrace".

It's Trump's particular choice of wording that has the internet up in arms.

The event came as Trump announced a long-expected move to lift the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends. The EPA now bans the high-ethanol blend, called E15, during the summer because of concerns that it contributes to smog on hot days.

"It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace", he said.

Democrats are hoping women candidates will form a "pink wave" to take back the lower chamber.

He could also be seen having a lighthearted exchange with liberal Justice Elena Kagan, seated next to him.
