How Smearing Kavanaugh Saved Sick Matt Damon

How Matt Damon got the Left to forgive him for saving a notorious sleaze: by smearing an almost certainly innocent conservative:  

Actor Matt Damon vowed to take a “back seat” in the “#metoo” movement earlier this year, after being accused of helping to pressure the New York Times to kill an investigative story in 2004 into movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct.

Now, he seems to have found redemption after mocking Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the “cold open” sketch on Saturday Night Live — a one-sided portrayal of last Thursday’s hearing in which Damon portrayed an out-of-control, and self-incriminating, Kavanaugh.

This is sick. Don’t the journalists cheering Damon feel not even a pang of shame?

Smearing Kavanaugh as a drunk and a predator is all that’s needed for the Left to forget the real low-life here:

Damon, who enjoyed a long association with Weinstein, admitted in October 2017 that he knew that Weinstein had allegedly harassed actress Gwyneth Paltrow, and that he was an “a**hole” who was a “womanizer” — though he denied knowing about Weinstein’s criminal conduct.

He also denied helping to kill a Times story about Weinstein, saying that while he had called the paper at Weinstein’s behest to defend a producer who was said to have set up Weinstein’s encounters with women, he did not know Weinstein’s purpose.

He also stirred controversy by appearing to defend Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) after a photograph showing then-comedian Franken jokingly reaching for journalist Leann Tweeden’s breasts. Damon also provoked outrage by suggesting that he would still work with comedian Louis C.K., who was accused of masturbating in front of several women.

Following those controversies, Damon told the Today show, “A lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing and want to be a part of that change and want to go along for the ride, but I should get in the back seat and close my mouth for a while.”

But Damon has apparently earned a pass by mocking Kavanaugh, as critics of the judge celebrated his portrayal of the Supreme Court nominee, whom the left presumes guilty despite every witness contradicting Ford’s testimony.
