Morning Docket: 10.15.18

* When you’re better known for your love of beer than your love of anything else, here’s the TMZ headline you get after feeding those in need: “JUSTICE KAVANAUGH SERVING MEALS TO HOMELESS … Hold the Beer, Please.” [TMZ]

* And in other Kavanaugh news, a group of witches will be holding a ritualistic event to hex the newly confirmed justice. Their goal is “to make Kavanaugh suffer,” and they plan to cast a spell and use effigies, coffin nails, and graveyard dirt to get the job done. [USA Today]

* President Trump defended his mockery of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, saying in his 60 Minutes interview that “if I had not made that speech, we would not have won.” When reminded that he was being a disgusting human being, he brushed it off, saying, “I’m not going to get into it, because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.” [NBC News]

* Per President Trump, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is “the greatest leader in history” because he’s so awesome at pushing through conservative federal judges with lifetime appointments. “Keep sending them our way, and we’ll keep changing the court system forever,” McConnell said. Brooooo. [New York Times]

* How do we know Pat Cipollone is the next White House counsel? “I haven’t named the new White House counsel, but over a short period of time. Pat’s a great guy. I don’t want to say, but he’s a great guy. He’s a very talented and he’s a very good man, but I don’t want to say.” You’ve already said enough, Mr. President. [Washington Post]
