WATCH: Chelsea Clinton Drips Condescendingly That Kavanaugh Was ‘Nakedly Partisan’

Appearing on CBS This Morning on Wednesday, Chelsea Clinton, asked what she thought as she watched the Judiciary Committee hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, pompously declared that Kavanaugh had been “nakedly partisan.”

Host Gayle King asked Clinton, “What did you think during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings?” She added breathlessly, “I was dying to know when we were sitting there and we were all there covering it and the Clinton name came up in his opening statement. Did you call your mom or your dad and say, ‘Can you believe he just mentioned our name?’ You all must have had a discussion about it. What was that like?”

Clinton replied, “Well, I didn’t watch it live, because I was actually at an event at Yale.”

King pressed, “But you heard about it.”

Clinton answered, “Oh, I watched it when I got home.” Then, her voice dripping with condescension, she continued of Kavanaugh, “And I just thought, oh, my gosh, we loom so much larger in your mind than you loom, at least in mine. Like, I don’t think I heard his name until he was nominated weeks ago.”

Then Clinton went on the attack: “But to me, what was so troubling was how nakedly partisan he was. And I think the principle of a judicial review being absent of partisanship is still really important, so if he had gone after President Bush or President Reagan’s family I’d feel the same way. Like I just don’t think that that is healthy as a dynamic on the Supreme Court, or, really, candidly, any court.”

What Kavanaugh actually said at the hearing as he tried to defend himself from the allegations absent corroborative evidence hurled against him was this:

This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election. Fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record. Revenge on behalf of the Clintons. and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups …

During 1998, the year of the impeachment of President Clinton, our office generally and I personally were in the middle of an intense national media and political spotlight. I and other leading members of Ken Starr’s office were opposition researched from head to toe, from birth through the present day. Recall the people who were exposed that year of 1998 as having in engaged in some sexual wrongdoing or indiscretions in their pasts. One person on the left even paid a million dollars for people to report evidence of sexual wrongdoing, and it worked. Exposed some prominent people. Nothing about me.

Clinton’s condescension about partisanship seemed rather partisan, especially considering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was nominated for the Supreme Court by Chelsea Clinton’s own father in 1993, and Ginsburg’s notorious comments about Donald Trump in 2016.
