Speaking on CNN as part of a panel reacting to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin asked the panel to share the feelings of two observers of the process: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland.

Toobin moaned, “Brett Kavanaugh is a judge on the D.C. Circuit. You know who the chief judge of the D.C. Circuit is? It's Merrick Garland. How do you think he feels today? I mean, Merrick Garland is a class act. He's moved on with his life, but the idea that he never got the moment that Kavanaugh is going to get.”

In addition to that maudlin moment, Toobin also stated that the other person whose feelings should be vicariously experienced was Hillary Clinton, asserting, “Hillary Clinton. I mean, Brett Kavanaugh made his name by investigating not just the Starr —not just Whitewater but the Monica Lewinsky part, the sexual details.”

Host Christopher Cuomo elucidated, “The tawdry, sordid, deep and dark stuff.”

Toobin continued, “And his, you know, making his name for himself got him on the trajectory that he is today. And Hillary Clinton has to watch yet another Supreme Court nomination that she thought she was going to be able to …”

The complete exchange is below:

How do you think he feels today? I mean, Merrick Garland is a class act. He's moved on with his life, but the idea that he never got the moment that Kavanaugh is going to get. He got the moment of being announced, but he never got — the other person is —

Cuomo: Trump’s sister.

Toobin: Trump's sister, whose advice was not taken. But Hillary Clinton. I mean, Brett Kavanaugh made his name by investigating not just the Starr — not just Whitewater but the Monica Lewinsky part, the sexual details.

Cuomo: The tawdry, sordid, deep and dark stuff.

Toobin: And his making his name for himself got him on the trajectory that he is today. And Hillary Clinton has to watch yet another Supreme Court nomination that she thought she was going to be able to …
