At the nail salon today. Things were hopping all the pedicure chairs were full, all the seats at the nail bars, and ladies were waiting. I'd say there were about 35 of us in there, including the nail techs. #KavanaughAccuser

Normally there's just music on and small talk with your nail tech, or ladies relaxing i the pedi chairs with their eyes closed. Well today, 2 of the ladies next to me started discussing the #KavanaughAccuser and it got interesting. #HoldTheVote
The friends, I'd say ladies in their mid 40s (forgive me if I'm wrong no offense gals) both agreed that this was a political hit job. They'd never seen anything like it. Suddenly a client 2 seats down piped up too. #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote Early 20s. Uh oh, I thought.
She said "I'm disgusted at the whole thing. It's totally political. And even if something did happen, they are just using that Dr. Ford" #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote The ladies at the nail bar all nodded and agreed...
"Since when are you guilty just from an accusation!" proclaimed a "soccer Mom" from the row of Pedi-Chairs.
"Exactly!" said an older woman next to her, nodding.

And then all hell broke loose...something I'd never seen before in a nail salon.
The entire salon, clients & techs all started talking at once, with each other, over each other & all about the same thing. Even our cute Vietnamese nail techs agreed, it's a hit job & they're disgusted and tired of it. I was stunned but giggling. #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote
I looked at my tech, 20 something Vietnamese-American "Jackie" studying for her nursing degree at ASU. What do you think, Jackie?
She frowned, pulled down her "mask" and said, "She's a liar", pulled her mask back up and continued with my nails. #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote
The entire salon burst out laughing. Then someone's grandma from the Pedi-Chairs spoke up and said "Why don't they see this in DC? Why is the GOP so scared?" The conversation exploded again. #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote
This went on, back and forth the entire time I was there getting my nails done--60 minutes at least. New clients would walk in, and join right in the conversation. NOT ONE WOMAN THOUGHT HE IS GUILTY. NONE.
#KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote And they were all pissed off!
A Senior Citizen in a tennis outfit who had been mostly quiet but nodding along, spoke up when the conversation lulled. "I actually was attacked and raped by someone I knew, when I was 16".
You could have heard a pin drop. Everything stopped.

My stomach fell. A few gasped. Someone said "I'm so sorry, we didn't mean..."
She cut her off with a wave. "No, no...not at all. I agree with you."
She told how she clearly remembers everything "unfortunately" to this day, "over 5 decades later". #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote
I've never seen people hug a stranger in a nail salon until today. But we all did. She said "Yes, women should be heard. But they must be truthful, and there's nothing worse than ruining someone's life with a lie." #KavanaughAccuser #HoldTheVote
So, there's a snapshot. These conversations are being had everywhere, but they're not what you might think. I was surprised at the consistency of opinion, but they were up on the facts. @ChuckGrassley We're with you. #HoldTheVote
You too @BrettKavanaugh 🙏🏽🇺🇸
Oh, and my nails look fabulous, thanks for asking! 💅🏽
#HoldTheVote
Ok folks...

Ah...so you're the one who started this going around again! 😂
