Kavanaugh Refuses To Shake Hand Of Parkland Dad - UPDATED

How appalling. Brett Kavanaugh glared and turned and walked away as Fred Guttenberg offered a handshake.

The defining image of the hearing was not intended by the activist in the picture, but there it is:

Yes, the whole thing's been a circus, but that's because it's so clear that this nominee is being rushed through for the NRA and other Republican donors as payback.


Apparently Kavanaugh sicced security on Mr. Guttenberg, identifying him by the bracelets he wears to commemorate his daughter.

Can you help us out?
