In a wide-ranging press conference Monday, one of the claims made by President Donald Trump involved the Thursday and Friday testimony of his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh testified under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of his SCOTUS confirmation hearing.

Trump stated Kavanaugh admitted to a serious drinking problem when he was underage and drinking illegally in high school and college.

However those who watched Kavanaugh's testimony refuted the President's claim.

People speculated as to why Trump would expose his own nominee to ridicule for lying under oath about his drinking problems while still under the legal age to drink.

Many wondered if the admission that Kavanaugh had a drinking problem in high school and college was an attempt by Trump to rid himself of his embattled SCOTUS nominee.

Exposing Kavanaugh lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee could give the President a reason to revoke his nomination.

As of Monday afternoon, Brett Kavanaugh has not withdrawn as a SCOTUS nominee nor has President Trump revoked the nomination.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
