During the extraordinary hearings for Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CN) harkened back to his days as a prosecutor as he mangled a Latin admonition given in jury instructions that: "False in one thing, false in all things". But instead of impeaching Brett Kavanaugh, Da Nang Bloomenthal ironically impeached his own credibility.
When Richard Blumental was first running for the Senate, it was revealed that Bloomenthal had often boasted that he was a Vietnam War hero, when he had never been to Indochina during his military service.
That mendacity inspired President Donald Trump to sardonically cite the Connecticut Senator as Da Nang Richard.
If it was not invoked in such a sad situation, it would be funny. Somehow, it is unlikely that this just jibe will be satirized on Saturday Night Live.
Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus indeed.
