Last night on “The Last Word,” Ana Marie Cox explained to Lawrence O’Donnell that facts are for losers; what really matters is feelings. Especially with regard to Brett Kavanaugh:
“We need to judge Brett Kavanaugh, not just by what he may or may not have done, but how he treats a woman’s pain. Will he take her pain seriously? Do the people interrogating her take her pain seriously?” https://t.co/LGDdKqR73J

If that’s your litmus test, Ana, then we should definitely not take you seriously.
Mmmm … smell that ratio cookin’.

Yeaaah, nah, we should judge him on whether or not he tried to rape someone. https://t.co/Ve41nnThV4

"We need to judge a man by how he treats his accuser" is a real take she thought was good. https://t.co/blYlKpwjYb

His rights start where her feelings end?

What exactly is he supposed to do with a woman who may be entirely making up a story that can ruin his path to Supreme Court….??? Take her to a ball game?

Is the pain real? Does he have a right to respond? Do you realize you're showing a warped take on justice in regards to the Supreme Court? So many questions! https://t.co/2eK5FUHKTG

Don't you kind of have to judge the first part before judging the second part?
If he didn't do anything, why should I care about her fake pain?
If he didn't do anything, shouldn't we be more concerned about the pain this has inflicted on Kavanaugh, his wife, and his daughters?

So even if she is lying he should treat her pain seriously even though she is trying to screw him over? That is stupid.

"It's alright if Kavanaugh didn't do it because the real issue is that he didn't take the pain of the woman making life ruining allegations nicely enough." https://t.co/27osV3LKxK

I hope you are never accused of something vague w no dates or times to defend yourself.

He either did it or he didn’t.
If he did it, he’s a liar.
If he didn’t, she’s a liar.
That’s all that matters. https://t.co/sCEtZ59gq9

Basically admitting that they don’t want BK to defend himself. He’s guilty if he doesn’t vigorously defend himself and he’s bad if he does. Quite the standard. https://t.co/zLf41BBeYk
