The Twitchy audience was watching the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation battle closely, so you too saw when the Democrats started to pivot from “Kavanaugh sexually assaulted at least one woman” to “Kavanaugh’s temperament during his testimony showed he shouldn’t be on the Supreme Court.”
And when conservatives called for due process and the Democrats came up empty as far as actual evidence that Kavanaugh had assaulted Christine Blasey Ford, the talking point became, “Well, this is a job interview, not a criminal trial. You wouldn’t hire someone who exhibits that kind of anger during his interview, would you?” For example:
Kavanaugh was not a criminal trial- it was a job interview for a promotion. A big difference. Thank you

The huge difference here is it’s a job interview not a trial. Just Kavanaugh’s time on the Starr investigation is disqualifying according to the canon of ethics for judges and justices

The man that screamed and sobbed during his job interview, just got the job. For life.
Let that sink in.#Kavanaugh

In other words, Democrats thought Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s letter was going to convince Trump to withdraw Kavanaugh from consideration, and when that didn’t happen, they assumed Ford’s testimony would destroy his integrity.
On Sunday night, Jebediah Bila tore apart the “job interview” narrative.
Spare me the “it was a job interview” anti-Kavanaugh talking point.A “job interview” where you ignored his 12 yrs as a federal judge,307 legal opinions & 6 background checks,willing to instantly destroy him over uncorroborated,unsubstantiated allegations.Job interview my ass.✌️

It was a job interview where your interviewer called you “evil” and accused you of attempted rape.

This is what makes Democrats formidable – they quickly phrase their plots in easy to remember sound bites…Russian collusion, job interview. As they were attempting to annihilate Brett Kavanaugh, they were controlling the optics…it’s only a job interview

I don't know of any job interviews where half the people "hiring" you already decided you weren't getting the job AND concocted a smear job with phony allegations to destroy your character.
This is, as you've pointed out, a BS leftist talking point.https://t.co/i52ikGZgSG

A job interview doesn’t presume you’re guilty until proven innocent. A job interview doesn’t presume everything you’re saying are lies. Libs weren’t going to vote for him before the accusations were even made. The whole thing was a rouse.

I’m always under oath and being accused of gang rape at a typical job interview. pic.twitter.com/qICrp31cwA

I agree. Very few job interviews where I was called evil or not only a rapist, but a gang leader of rapists to boot. Or that a 10 year old praying for everyone was to be made fun of in a cartoon. Correction – no job interviews to date like that.

I have to think that any employer who publicly smeared an applicant would run into some legal problem or another.
Surely the process of a job interview is held under some expectation of fairness whether employment results or not.

Job interviews don't go back 36 years to when you were 17. Ridiculous.

I’d like to see the HR manual used by the Democrats for this “job interview.” The Democrat interviewers would be out of a job today at pretty much any company in the US.

Job interview angle is only way they can justify “guilty until proven innocent” trope.
— Fred Stratmann (@cbuslawyer) October 8, 2018
That was no job interview!! It was a trial alright.. a Salem Witch Trial by the Democrats. It was sick and disgusting what the Democrats did to him.
It was hell.

I’ve never been to a job interview where they accused me of crimes to see how I would react.
— Joanna Wilcox (@wilcoxjj) October 8, 2018
How about a job interview that was publicized for 24 hours a day for a week and a half and "experts" in Law made their opinions of the Judge as fact. They disparaged his family and made cartoons that made fun of his daughter praying. Who goes through an interview like that?
— Sergeant Fisher (@Sergeant_Fisher) October 8, 2018
Not to mention the REAL job interview was the scheduled hearing, that ALL the Democrats refused to attend. At the end, the false allegations were entered into the record.
— Nancy (@ems56rn) October 8, 2018
“We believe her”. Translation. “We will do anything possible to not lose control of the Supreme Court permanently. “
News flash. That was decided 11/8/16.

I agree. Presumption of Innocence isn't some arbitrary legal rules. There are important philosophical underpinnings. You should always start with the Presumption of Innocence in all contexts. You'd certainly expect it in the event you were ever falsely accused of anything.

They will never get it.

It was absolutely a job interview..for Heitkamp, Donnelly, Murkowski, Nelson, Sinema, O’Roark, Menendez, Baldwin, Smith, Rosen and Tester.
