Trump's behavior today was that of a playground bully. They were the words that a bully utters and then laughs.
The rest of the world only turns its head to look away. They hope that someone, anyone, will intervene.
And Trump will likely get away with this, like always.
#ChristineBlaseyFord passed a lie detector test on the day of her grandmother's funeral. No one non-partisan or credible has questioned her credibility.
He wants us to believe that as a teenager he had adult levels of self-control. That his drinking was not that serious and his memory is perfect.
I think that most people would have to admit that it is clear Professor Ford WAS assaulted, and that it traumatized her. That it has affected everything in her life.
#BrettKavanaugh lied in his testimony for only one reason.
Because he is guilty and he knows it.
There is no other reasonable explanation for the kinds of lies he told.
The assaulter went to bat for the assaulter at the expense of an actual victim.
I suppose we should not be surprised.
And we should be amgry.
But we should never let him or them think that what he did today is in any way acceptable.
I am a #MeToo, a couple times over if I am to be honest, and what I saw today disgusted me.
We know him well.
We know he did this today to distract from the bigger stories out there. We know that distraction is his specialty.
But I've argued many times that while we must keep our eyes on the prize we must keep our souls while doing so.
