The Handshake Not Seen Around The World

Kiss me, you fool!

The LATimes:

Day 1 of the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, was not the sleepy affair typical of such openings. Instead, Senate Democrats repeatedly tried to halt the hearing, saying the process has been hurried and unfair, and shouting protesters were escorted from the audience. One moment that went viral: a failed attempt by a Parkland, Fla., school shooting victim’s father to shake Kavanaugh’s hand. What will today’s action bring? Here are 10 things to watch for from the Democrats, Republicans and Kavanaugh himself. Plus, follow along with our live chat featuring The Times’ experts.

And now to the handshake…

Another take (better in black and white?):

Notice how the White House tried to spin it:

And then from Guttenberg himself:

Really, just look at Kavanaugh’s face. Just look at it. That’s not confusion (“who is this guy?”), that’s contempt.

    Guttenberg was on Laurence O’Donnel’s show last night. He said he makes a point of introducing himself to any politicians and government people because he wants to build support for gun control. Kavanaugh heard him, saw his hand reach out, and deliberately turned his back with a sneer on his face. No security intervention, no excuse that he didn’t hear Guttenberg, just a rotten, shitty response to a man who lost his little girl to gun violence.

    I know the odds are completely against us, but I texted and posted a plea on Twitter to my Senator, begging him to not vote for Kavanaugh and tto tey to convince others to not vote.

      I saw it too exactly as you described it. There was no “intervention” between the two men. The moment he heard Guttenberg say ‘Parkland’ Kavanaugh turned his back and got that rotten eggs look on his face. I guarantee you if the man announced himself an NRA member, Kavanaugh would have grabbed his hand and smiled bigly for the cameras. Kavanaugh is a prissy, elitist scum and it shows all over his smug face.

    I tuned in just in time to see Miss Lindsay Graham’s late arrival and GrASSley allowing him to give the last speech of the day in his kangaroo court where all the rules of procedure were thrown out the window. Graham’s speech was priceless in its shamelessness. He scolded Democrats that “…if you want to appoint Supreme Court justices, then you better start winning elections…” Except if you’re the first black president and a Democrat, then winning your election doesn’t count either. Like I say, with Repiglicans it’s always “heads we win, tails you lose.”

    That bottom photo of BK looks like fear to me. And it’s justified.
