President Trump Caught On Video Upsetting Former SCOTUS Anthony Kennedy
Right after President Trump held a formal swearing-in ceremony for Justice Kavanaugh, video was captured of Trump walking back inside the White House with former Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Brian Krassenstein, a Hill reporter, noticed an interesting exchange between the two men and posted it on his Twitter feed.
When you watch the video closely, the average person is unable to discern what is going on, except for the fact that Kennedy is noticeably rattled.
Here, watch for yourself.
This is intesting. Trump says something to Justice Kennedy, the Justice that Kavanaugh just replaced. It stops Kennedy in his tracks and shocks him in what appears to be a negative way.pic.twitter.com/MYuOTSC3VJ— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) October 10, 2018
So, what was said? That's the topic of discussion.
A lady who goes by the name Mrs. B on Twitter says that she is a lip reader and if she can get the tape in slo-mo, she will be able to describe exactly what was said.
In the meantime, she has a pretty good idea.
If I can get this in slo-mo I read lips..I’ll be able to tell EXACTLY what is said— Mrs.B (@MrsB57967099) October 10, 2018
I know he says WAIT-WAIT-That’s not what you said-and then Trump says come on...and signals him into his office -I have a problem seeing the beginning with Trumps head but I could see the rest with a clearer version— Mrs.B (@MrsB57967099) October 10, 2018
It also seems that Kennedy is trying to regain his composure but Trump is ignoring him as he is lead into the room. I saw Kennedy say the word AGREE-as in I didn’t agree as they were walking off..it’s dark & hard to tell after that what is said. Trumps silent— Mrs.B (@MrsB57967099) October 10, 2018
No, he isn’t. One-he dsnt like to be condescended to-& he has no respect for his elders -& two-he prob had some shady deal he was trying to force Kennedy to agree to.— Mrs.B (@MrsB57967099) October 10, 2018
It has only been a few hours since the video, and follow-up discussion concerning the conversation has been online, so it's unlikely that Mrs. B or anyone else for that matter has a copy of the slo-mo version of the tape.
One Twitter user by the name "Resist Trump" says there is a clearer version on C-Span.
There's a clearer video on CSPan. Can't find the link now.— Resist Trump (@LoyalNewYorkDem) October 10, 2018
Go to 30:15 to see the whole thing - https://t.co/m6tysvMfhu— Craig Nobbs (@astrov2) October 10, 2018
cspan also shows that kennedy waited for Trump to engage him in conversation. trump listens, kennedy kind of nervously laughs, Trump says something, kennedy is aghast. then the lipreading part begins...— Resist Trump (@LoyalNewYorkDem) October 10, 2018
Right now, all we have from the video tape is that Kennedy was taken aback by whatever Trump said and he wasn't exactly happy about it.
I'm not good at reading lips, but when he started shaking his finger at trump, it looked like he said "you played me." Tell me I'm wrong.— Vote November 6th ❤ (@KappaNoLastName) October 10, 2018
whatever Kennedy started to say Trump realized needed to be said in the elevator— is it over yet? (@LynnLiberal) October 10, 2018
