On Friday night’s “The Angle” Laura Ingraham said what most fair minded folks in America had been thinking all week. She slammed the Democrats for how they politicized an endless onslaught of last minute sexual assault allegations against soon to be confirmed Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Fox News Reported:
Ingraham said it was clear that Democrats and many on the left were dead set on killing Kavanaugh’s nomination, but they made a “fatal miscalculation” by jettisoning due process and using victims to pursue a “radical political agenda.”
She accused Democrats of “cynically” and “cruelly” using Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in an attempt to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“Remember, she didn’t want to initially come forward to tell her story. She was dragged into the open by political leaks to the Washington Post and other media outlets. … And then she was forced to tell her story,” Ingraham said.
She said that Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) perfectly summed up Democrats’ “callousness” when she spoke in support of Kavanaugh on the Senate floor Friday:
I could not help but feel that some people who wanted to engineer the defeat of this nomination cared little, if at all, for her well-being. Professor Ford testified that a very limited number of people had access to her letter. Yet that letter found its way into the public domain.
Ingraham said the heated battle over Kavanaugh’s confirmation was really all about “the left’s desire to use the Supreme Court to impose liberal social values on society.”
She said it’s shameful that Democrats would use and exploit victimhood to that end.
“This was the Democrats’ miscalculation. They thought emotional extortion and protester histrionics would be enough to block a well-qualified Supreme Court nominee,” Ingraham said. “But once again, they let their rabid political ideology blind them to the fact that Americans are fair-minded, have a basic goodness about them, and they’re optimistic about the future.”
A countless number of notable tweets ensued on Saturday after the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!

A beautiful, beautiful moment in our country’s history.
America has at long last taken a deliberate stance against the increasing belligerence of the Left.
Congratulations, Brett Kavanaugh.

After watching this Kavanaugh circus for the last 6 weeks I do not understand how any rational voter could support a Democrat at any level for any office
They will do anything to get back into power, and use the demagogue, lying, smear tactics to stir up their mob
