‘USA Today’ Sports Columnist Posts Disgusting Attack on Judge Kavanaugh, Paper Reacts


A sports columnist for national newspaper USA Today went off the left-wing deep end with a disgusting attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, one so bad that the paper felt the need to edit the offending attack out of their columnist’s column and then apologize for publishing it in the first place.

On Friday, “sports” columnist Erik Brady was so incensed that President Trump dared to continue his support for Brett Kavanaugh that he had to attack the judge’s honorable history of coaching a girl’s basketball team. The columnist suggested that Kavanaugh was a child molester — without even an accusation anywhere of such a charge.

“Kavanaugh.. should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around,” Brady wrote in the piece.

“Brett Kavanaugh testified the other day that he might never coach girls’ basketball again,” this creep Brady bloviated. “He shouldn’t – at least not until further investigation has concluded. The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around.”

Now, remember, there are NO allegations that Brett Kavanaugh engaged in any sexual impropriety after he was a high schooler. Not. A. Single. One. Not one accusation in over 35 years — during which time he had access as a coach to dozens of teenaged girls.

And yet, here is this creep “sports writer” charging that Kavanaugh should stay away from teen girls and hinting that he might be a child molester.

Of course, a firestorm descended upon USA Today immediately with this ignorant attack.

It didn’t take long for the paper to jump into action. Not only did USA Today edit out the offensive lie, but it also deleted its original tweets advertising Brady’s column.

The paper also delivered an almost apology.

The paper tweeted a new tweet alerting readers to the change: “A previous tweet contained a statement that has since been edited out of a sports column. That tweet has been deleted. The updated opinion column and editor’s clarification are here.”

Here is the full notice posted to the column:

“Editor’s note: Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee he loves coaching his daughters’ girls basketball teams, but said in testimony Thursday “thanks to what some of you on this side of the committee have unleashed, I may never be able to coach again.” The intent of this commentary was to address that question. The column was re-edited to more closely reflect that intent and labeled to reflect it as the writer’s opinion.”

The notice did not satisfy many of the paper’s customers.
