Chris Cuomo puppy eyes

On Thursday, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh appeared in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to address sexual assault allegations.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo brought on one of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates, Lynne Brookes, to share insights into Kavanaugh’s performance during the hearing.

Brookes said that she was disappointed in Kavanaugh’s performance and that multiple former Yale classmates felt the same. She also noted that there were “emails and text messages flying around” pointing out all of Kavanaugh’s lies.

“I watched the whole hearing. A number of my Yale colleagues and I were extremely disappointed in Brett Kavanaugh’s characterization of himself and the way that he evaded his excessive drinking questions,” Brookes said. “There is no doubt in my mind that while at Yale, he was a big partier, often drank to excess. There had to be a number of nights where he does not remember.”

She added, “There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today.”

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

Published

CNN's Anderson Cooper received near-universal praise across the board for what one commenter called his "fiery rebuke" of recently paroled former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Friday night that culminated in the CNN host telling him excuses for why he should not have been in prison were "bullsh*t."

Many on Twitter were quick to point to the interview as one all cable hosts should look at as a way to stop guests who go on shows to lie with no pushback.
