Jen Psaki tries to discredit Josh Hawley's thread on Biden's SCOTUS nominee by tying him to Roy Moore

As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Josh Hawley posted a long and disturbing Twitter thread Wednesday reviewing some sentencings handed down by President Joe Biden’s nominee for the supreme court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. We’d pretty much assumed that “polite” Republicans would let this nominee slide right through — after all, she’d make history as the first black female on the Supreme Court. There wouldn’t be any Brett Kavanaugh cross-examination this time around. But Hawley isn’t one of the “polite” Republicans and found what looks like a disturbing pattern of Jackson letting child porn offenders off the hook with sentences shorter than the suggested sentencing guidelines.


The White House fired back quickly, saying Hawley’s thread was “toxic and weakly-presented misinformation that relies on taking cherry-picked elements of her record out of context — and it buckles under the lightest scrutiny.” The White House didn’t apply any scrutiny, though, so we’re not sure the “out of context” get out of jail free card applies. Hawley provided plenty of context.

Now press secretary Jen Psaki has gotten into the game, trying to tie Hawley to Roy Moore, who was accused back in November of 2017 of initiating a “sexual encounter” with a 14-year-old and three other teens.


No kidding: A Google search of “Josh Hawley Roy Moore” brings up an article headlined “Josh Hawley says Roy Moore should drop out” and another one titled, “Hawley ramps up stance against fellow Republican Moore”:


Roy Moore’s been dealt with. He’s long gone. And Hawley’s thread, “cherry-picked” or not, deserves to be read.
