“Now he’s a frat boy or a waiter at Ruby Tuesday’s,” said Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo on Wednesday night’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News. He was referring to some of the terms thrown at President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, by those on the Left in recent days.
Arroyo then named several famous “Bretts,” such as Fox News’ own Brett Baier, football Hall of Famer Brett Favre, and the late actress Brett Somers.
All of this was in reference to Stephen Colbert’s sad late-night bit on CBS this week in which the liberal comedian “joked” that Judge Kavanaugh’s first name, Brett, sounded more like the name of someone who waits tables at a Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant than a future justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
“They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel if it’s [Washingtion Nationals baseball] tickets and his first name [they’re making fun of],” said host Laura Ingraham. “That’s the best they have?”
She was referring to a Washington Post piece on Wednesday that nit-picked at Kavanaugh’s financials, including credit card debt he apparently paid off in 2017 that included fees for baseball tickets to Nationals baseball games.
“Welcome to ‘Supreme Court justice for life.’ Eat that, Left. For life,” said Ingraham.
The abortion advocacy group NARAL also tweeted an epithet targeting Brett Kavanaugh along with a gif depicting three pairs of clapping hands and the text, “BACK OFF BRETT,” on Tuesday night.
“We’ll be DAMNED if we’re going to let five MEN — including some frat boy named Brett — strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights. #StopKavanaugh #SaveRoe,” NARAL wrote in a tweet — which was quickly met with backlash from the Right.
In case NARAL’s followers weren’t certain of its stance on Kavanaugh, the organization included it in its Twitter bio, which proclaims, in part, “Leading the fight against Trump’s anti-choice nominee to #SaveSCOTUS.”
It isn’t clear whether NARAL’s infantile stunt was based on the 53-year-old judge’s first name, an allusion to his college days during which the married father of two pledged the fraternity Delta Kappa Epsilon at Yale College, or a bit of both.
Regardless, the so-called “frat boy named Brett” may soon replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the nation’s high court. His impressive resume, of course, didn’t prompt NARAL to temper its tantrum with one iota of respect.
