"These things always blow over"

“These things always blow over,” McConnell told reporters during a cheerful press conference after the Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday afternoon…

When McConnell was asked how he thought Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and the national debate around sexual assault surrounding it, would affect the way women voters view the Republican Party, he indicated he did not see a problem.

“You mean women like Senator Collins? And Senator Fischer? And Senator Hyde-Smith? And Senator Ernst?” he asked the reporter, referring to women Senators who all voted to support Kavanaugh. “This was about treating someone fairly. This was about evidence being relevant, not about unsubstantiated charges.”
