A livid Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) disregarded the Republicans’ attorney to speak himself, shouting that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has “nothing to apologize for” in the “most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics.”

“This is hell!” he yelled, saying that the Democrats are comparing Kavanaugh to Bill Cosby.

“You’re supposed to be Bill Cosby when you’re a junior and senior in high school, and all of a sudden you got over it,” Graham asked with incredulity. “It’s been my understanding that if you drug women and rape them for two years in high school, you probably don’t stop.”

He went on to attest for Kavanaugh’s integrity, calling him the “nicest person.”
