Democratic Party Mocked For Accidentally Using Photo of Hardiman in Article Slamming Kavanaugh

The official Twitter account for the Democratic Party tweeted an article blasting President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh that erroneously included a cover photo of Judge Thomas Hardiman, who was not nominated for the highest bench.

“MUST READ: Let’s be clear: A vote for #KavanaughSCOTUS would be a vote to rip health care from American families and deny women their right to make their own health care choices,” tweeted the Democratic Party’s account — along with the image of Hardiman.

Kavanaugh, who Trump named as his pick last night, serves on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, while Hardiman, who was one of the president’s known candidates to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, serves on the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

After much mockery — including from GOP Senator Orrin Hatch — the Democratic Party’s account eventually deleted the post. Check out a few of the posts from Twitter personalities knocking the mishap below:
