John Oliver Takes On Hypocrisy Of Pro-Lifers In Blistering Kavanaugh Rant

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Comedian and host of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver, dedicated the entire half hour of his show to eviscerate, moment by moment, the hypocrisy of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It was glorious and terrifying at the same time. 

Hitting on one of the more disturbing issues, Oliver talked about the Republicans' desire to appoint Kavanaugh at any cost with the sole purpose of rolling back abortion rights:

“It’s fine to appoint someone who has committed sexual assault to the Supreme Court as long as they will curtail abortion rights. It’s a stance that prioritizes human lives, as long as you think life starts at conception, stops right before a sexual assault and then starts right back up again right after that assault is over.” 

Oliver also pointed out that a Supreme Court Judge should at least pretend they are politically neutral.

When it comes to Kavanaugh, there isn't even an attempt to hide his partisanship.  

“It is worth taking a moment now to note the norm that has just been shattered, because I know that we’re all basically callous to people talking that way now, but we are supposed to have at least nine people left in America who do not talk that way, and yet Kavanaugh just all but came out and said that he’s going to approach his entire tenure as one giant case of ’me vs. the fucking libtard cucks.”
