With Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the sexual misconduct allegations against him dominating the news, the press has been camped outside of his home, completely invading his family’s privacy. However, demonstrating what a true class act she is, Judge Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley sent a “special gift” to all of the liberal reporters outside her house.
Brett Kavanaugh has been put through the ringer ever since President Donald Trump announced that he had picked the judge to fill retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. But the character assassination of Kavanagh has intensified since his confirmation hearings and, in particular, since he was accused of sexual misconduct some thirty-five-years-ago by Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford.
Speaking publicly for the first time, Ford said that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend — both “stumbling drunk,” Ford alleges — corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County.
While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.
“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”
Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house. [Source: The Washington Post]
Indeed, Kavanaugh has worked diligently his entire life to have risen to the level of success required to be nominated to the Supreme Court, only to have his name dragged through the mud by opportunists who hate President Donald Trump and his administration’s agenda.
But if you think things have been hell for Judge Kavanaugh, consider what his family has gone through. For example, Kavanaugh’s young daughters had come to their father’s confirmation hearings to support their dad and to witness the historic process of confirming a Supreme Court Justice firsthand. However, the girls had to be escorted out of the room thanks to leftist protesters who would not let the Kavanaughs be.
And that’s not all. Currently, there are reporters camped outside the Kavanaugh home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, allowing the judge and his family zero privacy and making them feel as if they are living under a microscope.
Anyone could understand how this might make a person bitter. But, incredibly, it only seems to have brought out the best in Ashley Kavanaugh, Judge Kavanaugh’s wife. Instead of cursing the reporters who won’t leave her family alone, Ashley Kavanaugh bought them all cupcakes from one of the area’s favorite bakeries and hand-delivered them to any member of the press interested in the tasty treat. And she did it all with a smile on her face.
When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes.

“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.

Now, that’s class. One social media user noted as much, commenting, “Only a Southerner would think ‘Oh, you hate my family? Here, have a cupcake.'”
While we cannot control everything that happens to us, we do have control over the way we react. The way we react in the face of adversity is a better indication of character than perhaps anything else. Ashley Kavanaugh is the perfect example.
Most people would have been angry and simply praying for the madness to end. But not Ashley. In an act of pure class and unbelievable compassion, she offered a sweet treat to the liberal reporters camped outside her home awaiting their next opportunity to condemn her husband over allegations that cannot be substantiated by any sort of evidence. What a woman.
