The 1990s are back and the ugly Clinton scandals are woven into FX’s American Crime Story: Impeachment, with the main focus of the mini-series being President Bill Clinton’s sexual exploitation of Monica Lewinsky. Ryan Murphy’s series seemed to be a success against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, as it featured many prominent figures in today’s politics.
In the episode which aired on October 5 titled “Do You Hear What I Hear?”, it is Christmastime in 1997 and Judge Kenneth Starr (Dan Bakkedahl), who was the independent counsel in charge of investigating the Clintons, is shown meeting with his legal team to determine if they have enough evidence to recommend impeachment.
The consensus seems to be no, with Jackie Bennett (Darren Goldstein) fighting to keep the case open and asking future Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a young lawyer on Starr’s team, if he agrees. Perhaps as a nod to liberal obsessions with sexual assault allegations at Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings, the script has Kavanaugh (Alan Starzinski) saying, “I never like to take ‘no’ for an answer…” It was an odd turn of phrase that stuck out like a sore thumb.
Jackie: We’re failures if we quit. Who am I? Huh? You’re a fool. Kavanaugh! What do you think?
Brett Kavanaugh: It is not my style to say “No”,Jackie, it’s not clear how to move forward.
The writers were trying to get the audience to consider the Kavanaugh smear and the liberal attempt by liberals, using this line, to cast him as a serial Rapist? The AV club picked up on what they had to say in “Stray Observations.”
MovieMaker Magazine stated that this line was deliberate:
The series’ showrunner, Sarah Burgess, confirmed that it was indeed Brett Kavanaugh — the same man now sitting on the Supreme Court. The “never want to take no for an answer” line is a grim reference to the accusation by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in 1982. During his Supreme Court confirmation hearings he vigorously denied this accusation.
It is just a lame attempt at keeping alive the lie that Kavanaugh sexually preyed upon women. The non-proven accusations against Kavanaugh at his confirmation hearings paled by those made against Bill Clinton.
However, the Hollywood hatred for the Supreme Court Justice continues to heat. An account on Twitter claiming to represent Starzinski (seemingly). confirmed by Now This’s Sean Morrow(The actor that played Justice Kavanaugh was ). tweetedThe show ended with “Brett,” which means, “Brett if you’re reading this, go fuck your self.”
Starzinski, Justice Kavanaugh is far more important than your tweets. He has a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court.
