As Twitchy reported not too long ago, financial disclosures made available by the White House showed that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had run up thousands of dollars on credit cards buying Washington Nationals tickets for himself and a handful of friends.
The Washington Post broke the scandal, but it appears that CNN’s Chris Cillizza is more than a little interested to see how it all shakes out for the SCOTUS hopeful.
Brett Kavanaugh, call your office https://t.co/wRNULzODU1

Um, again, it’s not like The Washington Post dug up some secret information; the White House disclosed all this today.
Brett Kavanaugh bought baseball tickets with credit cards, then paid off those credit cards.
Not only is that not really relevant to his position, but how is that a scandal?

You can’t be serious.

Even you cannot truly believe this is newsworthy (much less relevant to his qualifications to serve on the scotus), right? RIGHT?

Remember when you predicted somebody other than him, then said he was the predictable choice?

Know who else paid off his credit card debts one time??? HITLER

His only crime was that they were Nationals’ tix. Still, it’s a step above the Yankees.

Did he rip off Haitians to buy them?

splurging for the Cillizza seats
— Jared Kotler (@JaredKotler) July 11, 2018
Season tickets for the home games are $320 a pop (as in, per game, per seat) for the best seats. So $200K is fewer than ten full-home-season season tickets. He was partially reimbursed. This is absolutely hilarious. This is all you folks have? Really? Maximum LOLs.

I can't wait for Dems to completely own themselves by hammering on this in the confirmation hearings. Oh man. Salivating.

As dirt goes, this definitely ranks somewhere between "Anthony Kennedy's son once worked for a bank that made a loan to Trump" and "his name is Brett lol".

A public servant with a credit card debt, that never happened before.

Hi, Chris — Did you read the piece?
— Sandy (@RightGlockMom) July 11, 2018
He bought Nats season tickets on his credit card and paid the bill off when his friends kicked in their share.
There’s a lot of unfair maligning of journalists, but when you publish this misleading garbage you don’t help your cause.

I bet you saw the replies going in a vastly different direction in your mind just before you hit the button, right Chris?

This is like one of those mind numbing math problems.
Question: "Brett used his credit card. Brett paid off his credit card. How many morons from @CNN does it take to freak out about that?"
Answer: "It's a trick question because everyone at CNN is a moron."

Oh man! That's exactly what I was concerned about when I looked at the list of potential Supreme Court nominees, which baseball teams they liked.

Have you figured out how to monetize getting ratioed? Is that why you do these things?
