Yawn at Kavanaugh hearing sparks outrage
WASHINGTON, D.C. – As if the hearings to confirm Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court were not already full of fiery rhetoric, one particular event on Friday threw gas on that flame.
A known Trump supporter and Kavanaugh sympathizer dared to yawn obnoxiously while stretching out his arms, not once – but twice.
Henry Panky, who once stapled pamphlets at Republican voting center in Omaha, was seated conveniently behind the court appointee and in full view of the network camera.
Panky’s stretching yawns sparked a media firestorm.
Reactions across the political landscape varied:
“This is a well-known symbol of the alt-right and white supremacists across the country. They use it as a proverbial wink and nod to each other. The underlying meaning is white people have jobs and work harder, so they are more tired.”– Twitter user @ERRYBODY_A_RACIST
“<giggling> Show me. Show me the guy. <laughs histerically>. That guy’s name is Henry Panky? Hanky Panky! That’s hilarious!”– President Donald Trump-
“A real man stands up for other people and doesn’t play hate games. I’m more of a man than that racist!”-Rachel Maddow
“We simply can’t continue to stand for this kind of behavior in this great nation. Also, what Rachel said about her manliness is an unfortunate truth. I almost wouldn’t sleep with her.”- Former President, Bill Clinton
“I’m pretty sure he was just tired after a long day of stupid questions and Democrat theatre production.”– Supreme Court Nominee, Brett Kavanaugh
