Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) just mocked the media reports about Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He said that the media only proved that Kavanaugh likes baseball and buys tickets to games with friends.

The focus of the media was on Kavanaugh’s incursion of credit card debt. All of the information the media got was from the financial disclosure Kavanaugh had to provide. We’re sure they were pouring over it to get some dirt. The press is so desperate to have that gotcha moment that they tried to make buying season tickets for baseball using your credit card into a bad thing….

“I’m glad that outside fact-checkers are already swatting down Democrats’ desperate attacks on his nomination. In a breaking news, bombshell report just last night, we learned that Judge Kavanaugh enjoys America’s pastime. Investigative reporters scoured his financial disclosures and learned that he and his friends buy tickets to baseball games and that he pays his bills. So, as you can see, there’s still plenty of silliness to go around.”

We noticed right after the announcement of Kavanaugh as the SCOTUS nominee,  a major publication published two different negative articles about Kavanaugh. The sensational titles were bound to call attention to the supposed financial issue but we live in a fake news world. The media only tells you what they want you to know and not the full story. Well, Mitch McConnell just called them out!

WFB reports:

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Kavanaugh “incurred tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt buying baseball tickets over the past decade and at times reported liabilities that could have exceeded the value of his cash accounts and investment assets,” according to a review of his financial disclosures provided by the White House.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh incurred the debt buying Washington Nationals season tickets for himself and a “handful” of others, as well as spending on home improvements. In 2016, Kavanaugh reported between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued over three credit cards and a loan, and they were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017.
