Tiffany Cross Claims Kavanaugh ‘Exhibited ‘White Man Rage’

Political News

Almost three years have passed since Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation and the left still can’t let it go. The most recent example was Tiffany Cross, host of MSNBC’s The Cross Connection, declaring that Kavanaugh exhibited “privilege” and “white man rage” while defending himself of sexual assault.

The genesis for Cross’s remarks was a recent New York Times report that said the FBI received 4,500 tips, which led Democrats to decry the investigation as “a sham.” Cross agreed. ”It turns out that the FBI’s background check into Brett Kavanaugh was pretty much a sham, okay. So the FBI revealed this week it received over 4,500 tips during Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation, but only conducted ten, ten people, additional interviews.”

Both the Times and Cross omitted why.  National Review quoted Mike Davis, former chief counsel for nominations, as saying “Every whack-job in the world called into that thing. That’s why there were 4,500 [tips].”

Of course a public tip-line was abused by people with a political axe to grind.

Nevertheless, Cross teed up lawyer and reality TV personality Amrit Kapai to respond the NYT’s incomplete report, “This is kind of ridiculous and there really is no recourse. But, Amrit, as an attorney, I’m curious your thoughts on this entire thing.”

After Kapai condemned the FBI for serving the White House and “the American people,” Cross returned to cue up a clip of Kavanaugh’s September 27, 2018 hearing, “I have to tell you, Felice [Leon], the privilege of this guy during his confirmation hearing, we saw white man rage on full display for everybody, and he had the temerity and the privilege to talk about how much he loved beer. Take a listen and we’ll talk about it after the sound bite.”

“Privilege” is an interesting word choice considering Kavanaugh was asked question he would rather not have been forced to answer:

RACHEL MITCHELL [INVESTIGATIVE COUNSEL]: Did you consume alcohol during your high school years? 

BRETT KAVANAUGH: Yes, we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls. Yes, we drank beer. I liked beer, I still like beer. 

Liberals presented Kavanaugh as a serial teen rapist, and then they wondered why he was angry. They’re still presenting him as an entitled white bully. 

Cross sneered and said “I mean, you know, he kind of painted this picture of me, Toby, Opie, we would all hang out after school. I think a lot of us watched that and saw right through that. We all know a Brett Kavanaugh, we all went to school with a Brett Kavanaugh. We all worked in a cubical next Brett Kavanaugh in our life. It’s kind of ridiculous.”

The Saturday edition of The Cross Connection was a real doozy, before trying one more time to smear Kavanaugh’s reputation, this same panel declared being pro-life to mean “treating women like “incubators with mouthparts.”

The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross

11:05 AM ET

TIFFANY CROSS: It turns out that the FBI’s background check into Brett Kavanaugh was pretty much a sham, okay. So the FBI revealed this week it received over 4,500 tips during Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation, but only conducted ten, ten people, additional interviews. This is kind of ridiculous and there really is no recourse. But, Amrit, as an attorney, I’m curious your thoughts on this entire thing. 

AMRIT KAPAI: Why am I not surprised by this? You know, I recently read an article which basically analogized the White House as the client of FBI, and being a practicing attorney, I know that when you have a client you do whatever is possible to advocate for your client and to meet your client’s expectations and to get them what they want. The White House is not the client of the FBI. The American people are. It is our taxpayers’ money that is paying for the FBI and they need to do their job. They should have done it for us. You are appointing a person to the highest court of the land to advocate or adjudicate our rights, the American people. We are the client. It was not the White House and it should not have been handled that way. But I’m not surprised. I’m just utterly disappointed by how the system has wronged us in this way. 

CROSS: I have to tell you, Felice, the privilege of this guy during his confirmation hearing, we saw white man rage on full display for everybody, and he had the temerity and the privilege to talk about how much he loved beer. Take a listen and we’ll talk about it after the sound bite. 

RACHEL MITCHELL: Did you consume alcohol during your high school years? 

BRETT KAVANAUGH: Yes, we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls. Yes, we drank beer. I liked beer, I still like beer. 

CROSS: I mean, you know, he kind of painted this picture of me, Toby, Opie, we would all hang out after school. I think a lot of us watched that and saw right through that. We all know a Brett Kavanaugh, we all went to school with a Brett Kavanaugh. We all worked in a cubical next Brett Kavanaugh in our life. It’s kind of ridiculous.
