There has been no shortage of pure and vile hatred seeping into the world of American politics as of late, and the chaos of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation has only succeeded in escalating the flow.
The liberal left is furious: Not only did they allow Hillary Clinton to essentially take over the DNC and rig the primaries essentially sealing Donald Trump’s election, but they have also now had two Supreme Court judges appointed in less than two years’ worth of the Trump Era.
Justice Ginsburg isn’t getting any younger, either.
So, in the ensuing whirlwind of anger and repugnance, the left has made some bold and inexcusable statements. One such sentiment comes to us from a writer on The Late Show, who eventually was forced to recognize the error of her ways.
Writer for CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Ariel Dumas, said she regrets reveling in the suffering of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and being glad the media ruined his life.
Dumas originally celebrated the chaos surrounding Kavanaugh on Twitter, but then promptly deleted the tweet.
Dumas was finally able to come to her senses, however:
The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally. The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it.

The frustration surrounding Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation had been boiling for weeks in the US, with a number of angry and angsty reactions on display throughout the nation.
On Saturday, just before Kavanaugh was confirmed, a number of leftist protesters beat down the barricades at the Capitol Building, moving their protest temporarily to the east stairs of the institution.
