Appearing at The Atlantic Festival in D.C. on Tuesday, she responded to Kavanaugh’s assertion that opposition to his confirmation was “revenge on behalf of the Clintons.”

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee dismissed his allegation.

‘I mean, really, yes, it deserves a lot of laughter,” Clinton said.

She went on to state the perceived absurdity of his claim.

“And I told someone later, ‘Boy, I will tell you — they give us a lot of credit. Thirty-six years ago, we started this against him.”

Clinton concluded that Kavanaugh’s testimony in general did not reflect the temperament she believes a Supreme Court justice should display.

“There is something you seek in judges, of a judicious temperament — people who are able to discipline themselves, to be open to the evidence, wherever it might lead, to be fair to all the litigants who are appearing before them,” she said.
