Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) appeared on “The View” on Thursday weeks after Brett Kavanaugh was approved to the Supreme Court to speak about the entire hearing process.
During the hearings, Klobuchar was yelled at by Kavanaugh after she questioned him about his drinking problem.
“My first thought was, if I was appearing before him in court, he would have thrown me out of the courtroom,” the senator said.
While on The View, Klobuchar insisted that Kavanaugh should have been disqualified due to his partisan record. That’s when co-host Meghan McCain accused Democrats of misplaying Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony.
“Is it conceivable that Democrats may have misplayed their hand or handled anything differently in that hearing in general?” McCain asked.
“First of all, good question,” Klobuchar said. “But this wasn’t a hand to be played, right? She came forward.”
McCain then interrupted and claimed that she was referring to Senate Democrats, not Ford.
“It is what happened, and when you’re in a position of power and something comes forward at the last minute, what do you do?” Klobuchar said. “Do you just sweep it under the rug?”
