Mean Girls: NARAL Mocks Trump Supreme Court Nominee Over His 'Frat Boy' First Name

Many liberal groups have expressed substantive concerns over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, the abortion advocacy group NARAL voiced a rather odd, personal objection to Kavanaugh: his first name.

“We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” they wrote in a tweet.

The group’s tweet was criticized and many also pointed out that Roe v. Wade was decided by seven men in the first place.

NARAL was not the only one to go after Judge Kavanaugh’s first name rather than his record. Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert joked that Kavanaugh’s name “sounds less like a Supreme Court justice and more like a waiter at Ruby Tuesday.”

In addition to the criticism for being named Brett, Judge Kavanaugh also faced criticism from CNN for being a white man.
