Andrew Napolitano, senior judicial analyst for Fox News, sharply criticized President Trump for calling the unsubstantiated allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh "a hoax." 

Hayley Miller reports:

Trump on Monday told reporters on the White House lawn that Kavanaugh had been “caught up in a hoax” orchestrated by the Democrats. Hours later, while addressing a convention of police chiefs, Trump called the controversy a “disgraceful situation, brought about by people that are evil.”

Napolitano subsequently condemned Trump's rhetoric.

“I do not think the best thing that was said was ‘evil’ or ‘hoax,’ and I honestly wish that the president and his people would get past that,” Napolitano said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”

He continued: “The Supreme Court does not have an army to enforce its rulings. Its rulings depend upon the intellectual legitimacy of the manner in which the rulings are given, from whom they are given. They really have some work to do to patch up the divisions that exist in the public mind. These divisions don’t exist in reality in the court.”

The Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh by a 50-48 vote after a historically contentious confirmation battle.
