Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) took to Twitter on Thursday to ridicule Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in response to testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the early 1980s.
Kavanaugh, who has also been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women and whose name has been dragged through the mud over the allegations, was emotional as he again categorically denied all of the charges and described how the ordeal had devastated his family.
Kavanaugh was near tears on several occasionsduring his testimony, as was his wife Ashley, who sat behind him in the hearing room.
“If Brett Kavanaugh can be this angry on national TV, imagine what he’s like when he gets inebriated,” Lieu tweeted.

“Instead we can see the mean drunk… and he’s sober #KavanaughConfirmation,” Rosalind Chao tweeted.

“So, did that work for women? Having Kav yelling and screaming and whining about his future? Attacking sexual assault victims, ‘the left’ and ‘the Clintons?’ Seriously?” Michelangelo Signorile, a left-wing radio host tweeted.

Having Kav yelling and screaming and whining about his future?
Attacking sexual assault victims, “the left” and “the Clintons?”
