Donald Trump is nothing if not optimistic. He is riding high on his Brett Kavanaugh victory, and is now hoping the Republicans will take the midterm elections. Trump feels he has spearheaded a movement among Republicans that has galvanized them towards the election polls. Apparently, the confirmation of Kavanaugh has given him fresh hope that the midterm elections will turn out in his favor. Trump also thinks Kavanaugh’s confirmation was given “due process” so there you go. Unfortunately, Trump did steamroll his way into appointing Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but to say that the red carpet is being rolled out for the Republicans this November is a bit premature.

Trump has curated and cultivated a divisive attitude and has successfully pitted “them” against “us” which is the type of leadership he favors. The confirmation process of Kavanaugh provided fertile material for Trump to further divide the nation on topics of gender equality, and to be frank, basic human decency. Above and beyond the legal scope of Kavanaugh’s confirmation lies a major issue that D.C. has shined a light upon, and that is the lack of integrity among certain members of Congress. While Trump may want to throw another rally, so he can stand on a podium and crow about his success, he may be better served by considering that he has spotlighted the absolute lack of common sense among Republican Senators.

Despite having the majority, the Republican members of the Senate have consistently revealed themselves to be unable to take leadership roles that reflect the desires and the needs of their constituents over the desires and pressures of big business campaign contributors. Instead of highlighting their strengths, they have highlighted their weaknesses and their pettiness – and that will be reflected in the midterm election results. Certainly, the animosity facing the GOP was born from its obvious lack of concern over Kavanaugh’s background before confirming him to the highest court.

   

And while everyone deserves a fair trial, Brett Kavanaugh was never on trial. Therefore the argument he should be presumed innocent is at best a weak one. It quickly became obvious that the Republicans never intended to hold Kavanaugh accountable for anything he may have done and therein lies the problem as they ignored the signs before, during and after the investigative process without regard to even the possibility of guilt, purely based on his station in life.
