Afternoon Briefing: Who Will Think of the Men?
Imagine falling into a coma in October 2016 and waking up now, and seeing that 1) the President of the United States is Donald Trump, and that 2) the President of the United States is warning that it’s a very scary time for … men?

Trump is trying to vilify an entire gender. He’s basically saying that the real enemy here is women, who have got it “great” right now.
Pool report: "Trump expressed support for Brett Kavanaugh and said he's 'an exemplary person.' He also suggested the current climate is difficult for young men … Asked if he had 'a message for young women,' Trump said 'women are doing great.'"— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 2, 2018
And yet, as “great” as women have it, Mitch McConnell will completely ignore women who “bare their souls” to him about their sexual assault experiences, but if a white guy holds out his hand, the Senator is quick to shake it.

Stay safe out there, men:
Safety Rules For Men:— Jordan Rachel (@TheJordanRachel) September 30, 2018
1. Do not drink / party with liberal women
2. Do not be left alone at any time with a liberal woman
3. Do not trust liberal women
4. Do not raise your daughters to be liberal women
5. Keep detailed calendars starting now
Remember lessons 1-5 and you're safe
Meanwhile, Trump apparently believes that perjury is reason enough to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the court …
I think Trump just answered my question from yesterday? “I don’t think you should lie to Congress and there are a lot of people over the past year who have lied to Congress. For me, that would not be acceptable,” he said.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) October 2, 2018
… and yet, here is clear evidence of perjury and Trump still hopes to push him through this week.
Update: When asked, Kavanaugh told committee staff Sept. 25th he was “probably” at a wedding with Ramirez. “I am sure I saw her because it wasn’t a huge wedding,” but “doesn’t have a specific recollection.” Texts show his team had the photo, from a friend, at least since Sept. 22 https://t.co/yQVYmHlmbp— Dafna Linzer (@DafnaLinzer) October 2, 2018
This tweet is deleted, but I saw it before the author deleted it. It said that “boofing” meant having sex with a woman, but not just any woman. “Boofing” referred to sex with a woman with whom they had no regard. In either respect, it is most certainly not flatulence, as Kavanaugh suggested under oath.
