We ran into Robert Verdi, the former Style Network host and ubiquitous E! talking head, at the Louis Vuitton/Richard Prince event at the Guggenheim last night. So, we said, his business must be booming, what with the writers’ strike and all. “It’s a terrible thing,” Verdi said, solemnly. But! “It’s really good for people who are in reality, because it’s exacerbating our already tragic careers.” Unlike Daily Intel, whose life will be left cold and empty after the season finale of Gossip Girl this very evening, Verdi isn’t really feeling the loss of any specific programs. “I actually don’t watch television,” he confided. “I haven’t had it for two years. When I did a renovation, I got rid of the television, and I never bought new ones.” It was hard living without Oprah at first, he said. But it was ultimately for the best. “This is tragic, but I got to feel lonely, and I’m single so it was a lot of white noise and it keeps you company. I recognize the value of TV for people, but I wanted to avoid the feelings, so getting rid of it was great for me.” So what does he do now, if he’s not slumped in front of makeover shows like the rest of us? “I read more!” he said brightly. “Or, I count my money and try on my jewelry.” — Fiona Byrne
Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.
It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached. And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.
Yesterday, we learned of another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh—one we didn’t find out about before he was confirmed because the Senate forced the F.B.I. to rush its investigation to save his nomination. We know he lied under oath. He should be impeached.
