I will never in my life do anything this courageous and you probably won’t either

Dr. Ford’s need for coffee is so damn relatable. After telling the world about your assault, you’re just trying to survive again. #BelieveSurvivors

Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been Republicans’ number one enemy in the debate surrounding the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh throughout his Supreme Court nomination. In his testimony Thursday, he showed that he shares the disdain many in his party have for the California Democrat.
When she questioned him about why he hasn’t asked for an FBI investigation into the allegations against him, as Ford has, Kavanaugh seemed disgusted with the senator, furrowing his brow and while leaning back in his chair.
He didn’t answer the question directly, saying he would do whatever the committee wanted to do and that he wanted to testify immediately after Ford’s allegations became public.
