JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Caught on camera, former President Jimmy Carter shared his feelings about Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation at Emory University on Wednesday.

Carter described his confirmation as a “very serious mistake.”

“Whether or not [Kavanaugh] attempted to rape [Christine Blasey Ford], I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing,” he added. “I saw him lose his cool.”

He said that the current Senate is “quite subservient” to President Donald Trump and “afraid of his displeasure,” adding that he personally believes Blasey Ford.
