As the saga of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh continues to unfold, the prospects for his senate confirmation are starting to look grimmer by the day. Things may only be getting worse for Kavanaugh now that Julie Swetnick, his third accuser, has come forward.
In a sworn declaration submitted to the Senate, Swetnick has alleged seeing Kavanaugh engage in predatory and sexually aggressive behavior at numerous high school parties during the early 80s.
While many are working to investigate the serious charges laid out against Kavanaugh, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter with an entirely different priority.
Odd. I wonder how many of you went to high school parties repeatedly after you were in college? I’m pretty sure it’s safe to speak for me and my friends that the number hovers around 0. https://t.co/EY3GnjaDDk

In her statement Swetnick alleged a pattern of predatory behavior by Kavanaugh and others at the parties in question, saying drugs and alcohol were often used to incapacitate girls who were then sexually assaulted.
Although Swetnick has not accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her directly, she said Kavanaugh was present at a party where she was gang raped in 1982.
But the allegations didn’t seem to interest Donald Trump Jr.
According to Trump the bigger issue was why Swetnick, who was in college at the time, was attending high school parties.
Twitter wasn’t going to have any of Trump’s ridiculous statement and immediately tore him to shreds.
That's believable. I doubt anyone invited you.

You look like the guy that still goes to high school parties and talks about what a legend they are

Then Twitter took the opportunity to remind Don Jr. that people in glass White Houses shouldn’t be throwing stones.
You sure you wanna go there? https://t.co/uyUK8HShEc

Your dad reportedly went to lots of parties with underaged models when he was in his 30's and 40's – what's up with that?

perhaps you should ask your father case in point about this https://t.co/bSwxvAbzVz

And pointed out that, in light of the allegations, a college student in attendance was likely to be the least shady thing happening at these parties.
Actually there is just a year difference between high school seniors and college freshman, imagine people still remain friends after they graduate with the kids that were juniors. Do you have friends?? What is your point?

Exactly ! Not like she was 10 years older and going. Jr. the more I see you're comments the more desperate you look . But I am sure I would be also knowing Paul and Michael are telling all on you and DonCon. Not to mention the so many others who have. Tick tock

Agree. Many people have younger siblings or friends they might be hanging out with when they are home from college for the summer.

As incomprehensible as Don Jr’s logic was, Twitter didn’t seem to surprised by it. The part about college though…
Still trying to get past you went to college?
