Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are trying to crucify Judge Brett Kavanaugh for unsubstantiated allegations of sexual assault while he was in high school, claiming that behavior then should disqualify him now.
On the flip side of the double standard issue, is Rep. Beto O-Rourke (D-TX) who is challenging Sen. Ted Cruz for his Senate seat.
It has been revealed that while in college, O’Rourke wrote sexist and disparaging remarks about actresses, referring to their breasts and buttocks.
After being called out on this, O’Rourke issued an apology and now seems to be getting a free pass by those who are still condemning Kavanaugh for something as yet unproven.
(The Hill) – Texas Senate candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) on Monday apologized for writing a review of a Broadway musical in 1991 that detailed the actresses’ “phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”
Politico on Monday resurfaced the review O’Rourke wrote when he was 19 years old for the Columbia Daily Spectator, the university’s student newspaper.
The review from the Oct. 10, 1991 edition of the paper was written under the byline Robert O’Rourke and offers a sharp critique of the musical “The Will Rogers Follies.”
O’Rourke criticized the “perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.” …
Once again, we see the double standard by which Democrats live by and hold Republicans and conservatives to.
Don’t forget that Hillary Clinton fully stood by and supported Bill Clinton after it was proven he had more than one adulterous affair, one of which took place in the Oval Office, but she was quick to condemn Donald Trump for unsupported allegations.
Some Democrats are also making a big deal out of Kavanaugh admitting that he likes beer.
However, none of them seemed to have a problem with the many times that Barack Obama made a spectacle of himself drinking beer at the White House.
