In an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Democratic Senator Chris Coons defended the violent threats against Republicans over the confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh.

It has been reported that thousands of threats have been sent to Republicans telling them to Vote no on confirming Brett Kavanaugh. One threat in particular even threatened rape.

So what is Coon’s reasoning behind defending these threats? Of course, it is that Kavanaugh is such a threat that none of this actually matters. He also mentions that these threats are okay due to the fact the Supreme Court could have a ‘Republican Majority’ for decades to come.
