New Jersey voters spoke to “Fox & Friends” Wednesday about sexual assault allegations surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said they don’t think he’s gotten a fair shake.
Pete Hegseth traveled to a diner in Aberdeen, New Jersey, to ask people their thoughts on Kavanaugh, and several patrons said the process has gone off the rails.
“I think he’s being treated terribly,” said Mike, who is an Army veteran. “And I think this new letter that’s come up with Feinstein is just too little, too late. It should be dismissed.”
Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of groping her at a party in high school and drunkenly trying to remove her clothing by force while they were both minors. (RELATED: Trump Voters Double Down On Their Support For The President, Tell CNN They Don’t Mind Confederate Statues)
Ken, who is also an Army veteran, agreed with Mike and said Kavanaugh’s future should be the main focus of the hearings. He said the committee should concentrate on what he is actually going to do on the bench instead of details from his distant past.
“What happened years ago, who cares now? It’s what is he going to do now,” Ken said. “And our president has put him up there — number one … Everybody wants to make him look like the bad guy, and he is just not the bad guy that he’s made out to be.”
Another diner patron named Donna said the Democrats are using this controversy as a means to delay his confirmation and fire up their base for the November elections.
“My take and my opinion — I believe it’s a delayed strategy just to get to the midterms,” Donna said. “It’s a stall tactic to win the balance of power.”
“I think President Trump has done a tremendous job with the economy,” she added. “I only can imagine what he could have done if he had the support of his own party in the Senate and the Congress.”
