Last night, the New York Times dropped a
hit piece exposé on Brett Kavanaugh, digging up an incident from Kavanaugh’s younger days in which he was accused of throwing ice on a fellow bar patron:
As an undergraduate student at Yale, Brett Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a local bar during which he was accused of throwing ice on another patron, according to a police report https://t.co/j5gSrkHMp5

The New York Times’ piece was pretty rotten, but the headline apparently wasn’t quite juicy enough. Fortunately, Slate had their own take on Ice-gate, and they were willing to punch up their headline quite a bit:

Now that’s a headline. A crappy one, but a headline nonetheless.
… he was accused of throwing ice https://t.co/cbka4uEANg

Slate’s article fails to present any conclusive evidence that Kavanaugh drew first blood. Or any blood, for that matter. But then, as we’ve seen with regard to Brett Kavanaugh, evidence just isn’t that important to the Left.
He threw some ice. But keep doing you, Slate, keep lying to the people.

Slate is now a complete joke. The National Enquirer with less credibility.
