This past Thursday, both President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as well as the woman accusing him of sexual assault, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee about the allegations.
Most found Blasey Ford to be credible and sympathetic while finding Kavanaugh, well, less so. His performance was widely panned and viewed as erratic and angry as he attempted to style himself as the victim.
Then, on Friday, a mashup video of Samuel L. Jackson as his Pulp Fiction character Jules Winnfield questioning Kavanaugh surfaced and quickly went viral.
Watch the video here.

The classic film is often hailed as Quentin Tarantino’s finest.
In it, Samuel L. Jackson’s Jules Winnfield is a hitman who is after a gangster named Brett. The mashup capitalizes on the fictional character sharing a name with the Supreme Court nominee to hilarious effect.
People were amused.
This it the best thing I have seen on the internet in a looooonnnggggg time!!

But then, Samuel L. Jackson himself responded.
Funny as hell, but there’s nothing funny about his Lying Fratboy Ass!!! https://t.co/rSHcrMzMUM

It was a good reminder that, jokes aside, the Supreme Court hangs in the balance.
People felt that perhaps Winnfield should get in on this Supreme court process in some way.
I love it. So great. Put @SamuelLJackson on the Supreme Court!! That's the way to keep things on an even keel. The only things he ever assaulted, were some snakes on a mother fuckin' plane!! #AimForTheBushes #leadership #KavanaughHearings

Jackson did offer up a quick apology for any fraternity brothers who thought he meant all fratboys are liars.
Apologies to you Fratboys that aren’t liars & rapists, I cast that net a lil bit wide.
