Watch Kavanaugh Refuse to Shake the Hand of a Parkland Victim's Father

Watch Kavanaugh Refuse to Shake the Hand of a Parkland Victim's Father

This just happened in the Senate Judiciary Committee, before the hearing on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh recessed for lunch.

Who is Jaime Guttenberg? A 14-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who was among the 17 gunned down in February. Watch the video below the fold, in which Guttenberg tells Kavanaugh his daughter was “murdered in Parkland,” and Kavanaugh turns his back on him.

That’s who Republicans are rushing to confirm, a man who won’t even acknowledge a grieving father.

White House spokesman Raj Shah does what Trumpsters do best, lie in an official statement: "As Judge Kavanaugh left for his lunch break, an unidentified individual approached him. Before the Judge was able to shake his hand, security had intervened."

Too bad for Kavanaugh there’s video to tell the real story.
