President Trump Publicly Apologizes To Brett Kavanaugh For “The Terrible Suffering You Have Been Forced To Endure"
President Trump has apologized to Brett Kavanaugh for the circumstances that surrounded his nomination into the supreme court.
He was proven innocent
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in again, this time in front of the cameras, on Monday night at a ceremony which took place in the White House. President Donald Trump, who spoke before the official swearing-in, took a moment to slam Kavanaugh’s opponents saying they purposely tried to paint the judge in a bad light.
Trump also apologized to Kavanaugh and his family for all the trouble saying;
On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.
He then turned to Kavanaugh, and added;
You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.
Kavanaugh officially became a Supreme Court judge on Saturday, October 6th.
The Kavanaugh allegations
A few months ago, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a letter alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. This sparked a massive debate about whether or not he was fit to be a Supreme Court judge.
Ford later shared her story with the world where she explained that the incident took place in the early 1980s. She alleged that Kavanaugh and his friend forced her into a bedroom during a teenagers’ gathering and assaulted her.
She explained that she tried to scream but Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth.
I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.
She was later able to escape and fled the house.
Reactions to Kavanaugh’s swearing-in ceremony
Many people took to social media to share what they thought about the ceremony where Kavanaugh was sworn in publicly.
Let’s still swear in accused molester/sexual predator #BrettKavanaugh but fire #Roseanne from a show she created for making an inappropriate comment 🙄 #OnlyInAmerica

Trump has no mandate to speak on behalf of the nation. He lost the popular vote and his party represents less than 40%

The President does not speak for me or the majority of the nation, for that matter, and we do not apologize to Brett Kavanaugh.

As it wasn’t a trial, I don’t actually think any innocence was proven. Far from it. He did, however, come off incredibly childish when faced by accusations. Good quality for the senate?

This is NOT the way to move forward and bring people together. Why am I not surprised. 🤢

Clearly, not many people felt the situation was handled appropriately.
