If SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh has a right to be pissed at anybody, it’s Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who sat on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s letter for six weeks and then leaked it after he’d sailed through the confirmation hearings.
But now that Kavanaugh is calling her out on her dirty tricks and defending himself against a charge of sexual assault under oath, feminist novelist Molly Jong-Fast has decided that Feinstein is just “an 85-year-old woman.”

Given that she engineered this entire shitshow, he went easy on her.
Also, bringing up her gender as if a lifelong politician is somehow supposed to be immune from harsh words because of it is pretty much the opposite of feminism. https://t.co/yVkk5bYLlv

Senator. She's a Senator. She's a Senator who, to win an election against a leftist challenger, outed a woman who wanted to be anonymous.
Perspective. What is it? https://t.co/aKaKeViDkg

She was a mayor and is now a Senator. Are you suggesting she’s too fragile to handle a heated debate? Because it sounds like that’s what you’re suggesting. https://t.co/xJ0oMTy2eO

What a sadly sexist statement. She's a Senator, not a weak bone in her body. She gives it and gets it just fine. https://t.co/kOsFo4EbZI

A variation on the Hillary Two-Step here.
1. “You’re just afraid of a strong woman!”
2. “You can’t say that—she’s a girl!”https://t.co/OzIOZ3HQxC

She sat on allegations for six weeks so she could ruin his life for political reasons.
He treated her with more respect that I would have, and I am nothing if not respectful.
She absolutely deserved far worse than that. https://t.co/AcRCjbR9DE

An 85 year old woman who leaked a confidential email to the media against Dr. Ford's wishes. She interrupted the process after the hearings it should have been investigated during – but she knew it would not pass muster. https://t.co/6fMl2n51zD

She’s a US Senator, are you saying she can’t handle having her lies and vitriol challenged?
Are you saying she’s weak?
He faced a US Senator who has lied about him and smeared his name.

Who is trying to destroy his life. She started this whole thing. If anything, he was WAY too polite to her. https://t.co/TFb0MYhyav

You mean the 85-year-old woman who spearheaded the assassination on his character?
Yeah, he has a right to be angry. https://t.co/5nDxUGug3T

They want to paint this like he's yelling at your little old grandma who gives you Werther's, but Diane Feinstein is one of the most powerful and dangerous people in the United States, and would commit genocide if it got her elected. https://t.co/g4nQeYFrCk

Oh, goodness….now we are playing the age card. Perhaps you should suggest the Senator resign since she is so elderly and frail. You are ridiculous. https://t.co/Ghr06jJYcE
