Want to see an act of heroism in the midst of the Supreme Court madness?

The family of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has undoubtedly been though an emotional roller coaster over the past few weeks.  First, President Donald Trump nominated him to the Supreme Court, he endured examination by Congress, and then was subjected to an allegation of sexual impropriety that dated back to high school.  To top it off, reporters — sensing blood in the water — surrounded the Kavanaugh family home.

What “breaking news” did they think was going to happen there?  Why would an old accusation justify stalking their home?  Their callous targeting indicates they don’t really care about the plight of women — after all Kavanaugh has a wife and daughters.

However, his wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh wasn’t afraid of those impertinent reporters.  Instead of cowering in her home, curtain drawn, she bought cupcakes for them and delivered them herself.

Kathryn Watson tweeted, “Per our CBS News cameraman at Kavanaugh’s house, his wife handed out cupcakes from Sprinkles to any of the photogs and producers who wanted them,” Watson tweeted.

According to PJ Media, “Sprinkles is an iconic cupcakes shop first founded in Beverly Hills, Calf. It is considered one of the first cupcake bakeries.”

What a beautiful gesture of kindness in an otherwise unbelievable political circus.
