The media is working overtime to paint Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a callous monster after his brief interaction with the father of a victim of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schoo at Tuesday’s confirmation hearing.
“Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended. Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence,” said Fred Guttenberg on Twitter.

That narrative is a flat-out lie. Security pulled Kavanaugh away as a strange man approached him as the confirmation hearing was taking a recess. Watch the interaction. The security guard clearly jumps in between the two:
The fake news outrage is more ridiculous than usual, but desperate times call for desperate measures. On the brink of losing another SCOTUS seat, liberals need all the help they can get in their campaign to #StopKavanaugh, and as usual, their friends in the mainstream press are more than willing to lend a hand.
First, why would soon-to-be Justice Kavanaugh have any idea who Jaime Guttenburg is? Secondly, Kavanaugh was finishing answering questions from U.S. Senate members when he was ambushed by a man he did not know. Why does Guttenberg think that he has the right to steal the show and speak with Kavanaugh in such a setting? Did he think that that was an appropriate time or place to debate Kavanaugh on the Second Amendment? Finally, there are surely security protocols in place that are meant to stop strangers from walking up to SCOTUS nominees, which is exactly what Guttenberg did.
The whole premise is ridiculous.
In fact Guttenburg said on Monday, he was attending explicitly to sabotage the confirmation hearing.
I will be at Kavanaugh hearings and I hope to play a role in ensuring that this man does not become the next Supreme Court Justice. https://t.co/6oC7OPlyB8

White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah set the record straight.
“As Judge Kavanaugh left for his lunch break, an unidentified individual approached him. Before the Judge was able to shake his hand, security had intervened,” he said on Twitter.
But that did not stop the mainstream press from coming down hard on Kavanaugh.
“Brett Kavanaugh snubs Parkland victim’s father at Senate confirmation hearing,” said a Mashable headline.
“The father of a Parkland shooting victim tried to shake Brett Kavanaugh’s hand. He failed,” said Vox.
The leftist mainstream press is the face of derangement in America. In the midst of what is likely one of the most important days of Kavanaugh’s life, they are hammering him over a two second interaction with someone whom he had never met, and had no reason to know.
What an absurd spectacle.

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”
The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.
President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.
President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.
“Where is Doctor Fauci?”
Watch the exchange here:
“Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.”
Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.
Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.”
As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.
Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
