Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has a lot to worry about right now, and he's probably spending most of his time preparing for his upcoming Senate confirmation hearings — after all, the media is already digging up terrifying anecdotes from his past, like that one time he bought a lot of baseball tickets on his credit card and then immediately paid them off.
Yesterday, though, Kavanaugh was spotted taking time out of his busy schedule to serve meals to the homeless outside of the Washington, D.C. office of Catholic Charities.
A passerby caught him in the act and sent pictures to The Daily Caller.
A friend of mine spotted Judge Kavanaugh serving hot dinners to the poor this afternoon, after a day spent huddling with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. #AppellateTwitter #SCOTUS https://t.co/WHm5eCZbXd pic.twitter.com/7amp6JrZx3— Kevin Daley (@KevinDaleyDC) July 12, 2018
The Daily Caller reports that the judge's official biography lists him as an active member of an Archdiocese of a Washington, D.C. program called St. Maria’s Meals, which serves hot food to the poor who live on Capitol Hill. A quick peek at the program's website shows that, indeed, they were serving food yesterday at 6:15 p.m.
Another Twitter user confirmed that Kavanaugh had signed up for yesterday's service far in advance, so it wasn't just a "mere post-nomination photo op." Apparently, he kept the engagement even though he had a pretty good excuse for missing out on a service opportunity.
I was there and can confirm. Also, this was no mere post-nomination photo op. Judge #Kavanaugh signed up a while back to serve on this date (as he has @CCADW on several prior occasions), and chose to keep the commitment.— Michael Huston (@HustonMichaelR) July 12, 2018
One of the Left's favorite talking points in the wake of Kavanaugh's nomination has been that his appointment spells certain doom for a large segment of the population (a letter from Yale recently confirmed that the Left believes "thousands will die" if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Court), but it seems the nominee is out to see that that doesn't happen, even if he has to attend to the matter personally.
