‘You Look Ridiculous’: Pro-Choice Group Mocked By Conservatives For Calling Kavanaugh a ‘Frat Boy’


The reproductive rights advocacy group NARAL was mocked by conservatives on Wednesday for calling Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was picked as President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee on Monday, a “frat boy.”

“We’ll be DAMNED if we’re going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” tweeted the national NARAL account last night.

The Greek life-themed barb is presumably a reference to Kavanaugh’s first name Brett, as it sounds like a common name for an upper-middle class white male. Additionally, the jokes about Kavanaugh’s first name are similar to the popular “Brad and Chad” meme mocking frat guys with basic, one syllable names.

However, right-wing Twitter did not appreciate the joke, as everyone from conservative pundit Ben Shapiro to the National Review‘s Charles Cooke slammed the pro-abortion group for the jab:
