Here is a thread of reactions from the dying Mainstream Media crowd
Shorter version of Susan Collins speech: “I’m willing to destroy America just to destroy myself.”

1. Ford was sexually assaulted
2. It probably wasn’t Kavanaugh
A “moderate” Republican senator is arguing Ford misremembers the person who tried to sexually assault her.
Absolutely fucking bonkers. A ghoul.

Susan Collins passive aggressively attacking the credibility of a victim while declaring herself a champion of women’s rights in a speech that has gone on forever is … cringe worthy.

I do not think @SenatorCollins understands what she is about to unleash.

The fund raising money for Susan Collins’ future opponent just crossed $2 million as she spoke.

This speech by Senator Susan Collins is the slowest middle finger in human history

Collins speech reminiscent of white “moderates” who legitimized Jim Crow

Wow, i really cannot believe that Susan Collins is citing Kavanaugh’s overlap with Merrick Garland as evidence of his moderation. Where was she when Senate GOP refused to move on Garland’s nomination?

At this point I think Mitch McConnell may be holding one of Susan Collins’ loved ones as a hostage. Collins’ speech like a video a hostage makes. The only thing missing is Collins holding up a newspaper as proof of the date

susan collins calling kavanaugh a “centrist” is so delusional

Collins goes on and on bemoaning the Sipreme Court nomination “process.” Well, there’s only two responses to that: Merrick Garland…and Merrick Garland. This is more gaslighting.

â€œEvery person who makes a charge of sexual assault should be heard and treated with respectâ€¦and then promptly ignored”

These are only a few of the hot takes from the dying Mainstream Media.
