The swearing-in ceremony for Judge Kavanaugh was held Sunday at the White House, and Donald Trump being the gentleman he is, took it upon himself to apologize to the judge for all the accusations and trouble he has received.
It has been reiterated by both Kavanaugh and Trump that the accusations hurled by Dr. Ford have been politically motivated. With chances of the Democratic Party being behind this, these allegations were meant to stop or delay the nomination of Kavanaugh. With Kavanaugh sworn in as Supreme Court Justice now, all these actions seem to have miserably failed.
While there has been a lot happening last week, we fail to recognize how the reputation of a good and humble man was maligned. Kavanaugh is perfect for the job, but he had to prove it through metrics unprecedented.
Trump realized how hurt Kavanaugh must have been due to the proceedings of the last couple of weeks and apologized to him during his speech during the ceremony.
“On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure,” Trump mentioned during his remarks at the ceremony. “Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process.”
Kavanaugh took the podium after Trump, and he spoke in his usual calm and collected manner. The Supreme Court Justice assured everyone that he has gotten over the happenings of the past few weeks and is now geared to uphold the constitution and serve the American people without falling to partisan politics.
