With some glee, Democrats are celebrating what they presume is the demise of President Trump's nominee to be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.

How many people died in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria? From news accounts, we know the exact number: 48. I mean 64. At least 450. No, 985. More like 1,052, or maybe 1,085. It could be 4,645 or 5,740, one study said, or somewhere between 793 and 8,498. Or 2,975.

His colleagues, and even his adversaries, spoke highly of him. In contrast, the impotent rage of his Democratic inquisitors
Donald Trump is a brash, out-of-the-box president who had the temerity to defeat Hillary Clinton and is guilty of heaping scorn on members of Washington’s entrenched ruling class.

The “intergalactic freak show,” as Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) so splendidly called it, continues. For the third time, the progressives have used a last-resort accusation of sexual misconduct to seek to besmear the reputation of a good man and force him to withdraw from the public stage.
