Judge Brett Kavanaugh was originally scheduled to volunteer with a Catholic charity to feed the hungry last night. That was before he was nominated by President Trump on Monday night to fill the seat of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
After meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Judge Kavanaugh showed up for duty and served hot dinners for the poor in Washington, D.C.
But amidst the chaos of the confirmation fight, Kavanaugh took a moment to do something incredibly human.
A passerby spotted the new Supreme Court nominee on her way home from work Wednesday night, and sent these pictures to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, less than 48 hours after he was tapped to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy.
According to his D.C. Circuit biography, the judge is a volunteer with the St. Maria’s Meals program, which serves hot dinners to the capital’s poor. During his acceptance remarks on Monday night, the judge mentioned that his Jesuit high school education taught him to be “a man for others.”
A fellow volunteer confirmed that the judge signed up for the event some time ago and chose to keep the date, developments in his professional life notwithstanding.
