Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer tweeted a defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday morning.

Fleischer, who worked alongside Kavanaugh during the George W. Bush administration, was responding to critics who suggested Kavanaugh’s visible anger — over allegations he repeatedly claimed to be false — proves that he does not have the temperament to sit on the Supreme Court.

Fleischer argued that, should someone accuse the judge of something like gang rape in open court, he would simply drop the gavel and hold the accuser in contempt. Applying that analogy further, he explained that claiming how Kavanaugh’s response would be relevant in court demands that one also look at the accusation in the context of the courtroom as well.
