Justice Antonin Scalia’s son combatted the Democratic Party and the media’s attacks on Brett Kavanaugh, shooting down the “lack of temperament” narrative.
After the Kavanaugh testimony, the left immediately turned the narrative into an attack on Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament because of how he emotionally defended his reputation. Chris Scalia, the son of Antonin Scalia, went on Fox News to give his take of the temperament attacks.
As noted by the Washington Examiner:
A son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia rejected claims that Brett Kavanaugh lacks the appropriate temperament to serve on the Supreme Court after a contentious hearing with senators Thursday.
“It’s really not all that rare for justices to get angry,” public relations professional Christopher Scalia said during a Fox News interview. “You read some of the dissents, they’re mad. They are often called scathing and fiery.”
Scalia, one of nine children of the late conservative justice, said the context of Kavanaugh’s hearing is different than what he would face on the court.
“It’s true that Justice Kavanaugh was perhaps more aggressive than justices would be, but that’s, I think, because the circumstances were a lot different. Justices are talking about points of law. He was defending his good name from uncorroborated allegations,” Chris Scalia said.
He then made an extremely valid point, Scalia added, “[The Democrats] lost the argument on [Kavanaugh’s] qualifications and his opinions during the first week, so they’re left with really just character assassination.”

With the FBI investigation rolling full speed into Kavanaugh’s history this week, nobody really knows what’s going to happen.
