What’s the big freaking deal? These people are so desperate that will latch onto anything to discredit President Trump’s SCOTUS pick.
Case in point — Brett Kavanaugh’s paid off credit card debt.
Those sleuths over at the Washington Post are putting the ‘fake’ in ‘fake news’.
Not to be outdone by their colleagues over at the New York Times, or the 24/7 ‘Fake News’ outlet, CNN, WaPo publishes a scandalous report on Supreme Court Justice Nominee, Brett Kavanaugh’s credit card debt.
It’s scandalous, I tell you!
The scandal was right there in the headline: Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh piled up credit card debt by purchasing Nationals tickets, White House says
So, the White House knew he supported the Washington Nationals and he was still nominated?
It turns out that when you actually read the article, and you read the debt that Kavanaugh had racked up, the very next paragraph says that the debts were almost all paid off. WaPo spoke to White House spokesman, Raj Shah.
In 2016, Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued over three credit cards and a loan. Each credit card held between $15,000 and $50,000 in debt, and a Thrift Savings Plan loan was between $15,000 and $50,000.
The credit card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments. Shah told The Post that Kavanaugh’s friends reimbursed him for their share of the baseball tickets and that the judge has since stopped purchasing the season tickets.
But, just to make sure that it sounds scandalous, they added this one tidbit:
Shah did not provide the names of the friends or additional details about the tickets. Kavanaugh, who is known to be a Nationals fan, declined to comment.

Oh, my goodness! Brett Kavanaugh bought tickets for his friends.
You know what it is — they must be Russians.
The Post also reports that the Kavanaughs send their two daughters to a private Catholic school with a tuition of $10,025 per child. What this actually has to do with his nomination to the Supreme Court or his judicial responsibilities associated with that is simply beyond me. And I’m apparently not alone. The Twitter post of the article had a bunch of comments asking just that.
Why do we care about his debt? I care about his voting record.

"The credit card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings"
Rendering this entire article as pointless. If this is your idea of a hit piece, you're going to have a longgg 8 years of Trump and his 3-4 Justices

So he incurred credit card debt and (as finally revealed many paragraphs later) paid it off?!
There is some INCREDIBLE investigative reporting!

But that’s not all that Leftists are doing… they’re resorting to mocking his first name.

(Should we tell NARAL that Roe v. Wade was decided by 7 MEN?)
I don't know much about Kavanaugh, but I'm skeptical because his name is Brett. https://t.co/ejtd4r5LsN

Yesterday the media attacked Brett Kavanaugh for…
Liking beer, being named "Brett," and buying baseball tickets for him and his friends on a credit card and paying it off.
I can't wait to see today's damning news that Brett Kavanaugh likes hamburgers.
