There used to be an old adage that, when it comes to politics, it’s okay to do battle with a politician but you leave their family out of it. Apparently that memo didn’t reach the Illinois Times, which published a sick cartoon trashing Brett Kavanaugh and his 10-year-old daughter, who prayed for accuser Christine Ford.
During his comments before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Kavanaugh talked about his daughter and how she prayed for the women falsely accusing him of sexual misconduct.
“I’m not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time,” Kavanaugh said. “But I have never done this to her or to anyone. That’s not who I am, it is not who I was. I am innocent of this charge. I intend no ill will to Dr. Ford and her family.”
“The other night, Ashley and my daughter, Liz, said their prayers,” Kavanaugh choked up as he continued. “Little Liza, all of 10 years old, said to Ashley, we should pray for the woman. That’s a lot of wisdom from a 10-year-old. We mean no ill will.”
And here’s more on the disgusting response from one media outlet:
