"Here's what I think, Amy Klobuchar should apologize to Judge Kavanaugh and his family for being part of a smear campaign I haven't seen in over 20 years in politics".
While Kavanaugh was not "perfect with respect to alcohol", Trump said he knew opposition Democrat senators who are not "angels".
"And a man's life is in tatters", he said. On top of not giving "s**t" about what people think about his support for President Trump's agenda, the formerly milquetoast Republican is now telling the GOP to not only support Kavanaugh but double-down on him during the midterms should the vote fail on the Senate floor.
In a White House press conference, the USA president sought to excuse excessive drinking by teenagers, while going beyond Kavanaugh's own testimony on his past use of alcohol to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.
Mr Trump said today he believed Mr Kavanaugh will be confirmed by the Senate this week, but it depends on what comes back in the FBI investigation.
As you probably know, Kavanaugh is now accused by three women of sexual misconduct!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate, made up of 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, will be "voting this week" on advancing the Kavanaugh nomination, setting up a possible final confirmation vote this weekend or early next week.

British provenance will be a key point of difference for Jack's, with eight out of 10 products grown, reared or made in Britain. He added: "This reflects the strength of Aldi and Lidl and the volume of their market share".
Senator McConnell said a vote would happen on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination by the end of the week.
A member of the Judiciary Committee, Mr Flake voted to approve Mr Kavanaugh in the panel's vote on Friday that sent the nomination to the full Senate for consideration, but only after he requested that the FBI conduct an investigation of the sexual misconduct allegations against the nominee.
Trump poked fun at himself while responding to questions about his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who faces potentially career-destroying allegations that he abused women during heavy drinking sessions at school and university.
"I was surprised at how vocal he was about the fact that he likes beer", the president said. My beef is with the Democratic Party who laid in wait, betrayed her trust, and didn't tell her we would go to California.
United States media meanwhile reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had begun their interview of Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's former best friend and a key figure in the misconduct allegations leveled by Christine Blasey Ford. A third woman who has accused the judge of sexual misconduct in the 1980s, Julie Swetnick, was not on the initial list of witnesses to be interviewed. Judge has previously denied any memory of any such incident.
The FBI was also due to question Leland Keyser and PJ Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.
