During Monday's debate about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) tried to gaslight the accuser live on national television.


"Hatch told me Kavanaugh is 'honest' and 'straightforward' and said after talking to Kavanaugh the woman might be 'mixed up,'" tweeted NBC Hill reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell.

During a CNN interview, Hatch said "she's mixed up" and "she's mistaken." He didn't go so far as to use the words "legitimate rape" but he wasn't far off.

The internet let him have it. See the best below:
