Zina Bash, Demystified [VIDEO]

One of the sideshows from the Brett Kavanaugh circus confirmation hearings has been his former law clerk, Zina Bash. Actually, Bash didn’t make her presence a sideshow, but members of the liberal Resistance sure turned her into one.

It all started on Tuesday, when blue-check Twitterer Amy Siskind claimed that Bash was flashing a white supremacy hand sign. Siskind deleted her tweet, but the internet and screenshots never forget.

Another blue-check Resister couldn’t, ahem, resist.

Bash’s husband, a U.S. attorney appointed by Trump, came to her defense:

“The attacks today on my wife are repulsive. Everyone tweeting this vicious conspiracy theory should be ashamed of themselves. We weren’t even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing.”

“Zina is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side. She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors. We of course have nothing to do with hate groups, which aim to terrorize and demean other people — never have and never would.”

End of story, right? But no — cue Britney Spears — oops, she did it again!

Even conservative Trump critic and blogger Patterico wrote that this was intentional trolling:

“Regardless of whether it was an accident the first time or not, and regardless of whether she was unfairly attacked on Day One, doing this on Day Two is absurd.”

“It is, at a minimum, extraordinarily immature, and disrespectful to Kavanaugh — who is, by all accounts, a decent man and a great judge, and who does not deserve this distraction. By Day Two she knows that much of the country sees this symbol, in this context, as an alt right symbol at a minimum, if not a white power symbol. So she sits behind her former employer and deliberately flashes the symbol … to troll the libs??”

Patterico also concluded that Zina Bash shouldn’t return for the third day of the hearings.

However, this “intentional trolling” turned out to be nothing more than a former law clerk asking for some water for Judge Kavanaugh.

Taylor Foy, a spokesman for the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, debunked the conspiracy nuts in a Saturday Washington Post article. He said that Zina Bash had texted a staffer to bring some water for Kavanaugh. “She was simply communicating her thanks” by making the “okay” sign, said Foy.

To his credit, however, Patterico admitted that he was very, very wrong. He also apologized to Zina Bash and her husband:

Patterico also took to his blog on Saturday to write his mea culpa:

“I utterly screwed the pooch on this one. I’m leaving the post up with a prominent update and a link to this post. You guys were right and I was wrong.”

Kudos to Patterico for admitting his error, especially all over social media. Now if only Sen. “Spartacus” Booker would apologize for his shenanigans at Judge Kavanaugh’s hearing. But I’m not holding my breath.

    I don’t know. All those facts, when I have an opinion. It’s easier to believe that a Harvard educated Mexican Jewess who’s married to an U.S. Attorney, whose background was vetted for his Senate confirmation and his Secret Security clearance (and, given her various past positions, she probably has a Secret Clearance and went through background checks, too), is really a member of the International Order of Illuminati O-Tay Privilege. . See, even emojis are racist. .

    Oh, and what is “Eugene Gu, MD” ‘s specialiality? If I get a diagnosis from zer, I’ll definitely want a second opinion.

  • Eddie S. says:

    Dr. Gu’s speciality is that he is a former surgical resident who, according to news reports, was not rehired for his fourth and fifth year residency. The reasons for his non-renewal were not reported, but he and his former gf had a spat and according to her, it didn’t end well.

    We’ve got to change our “secret signal” to the first three fingers raised vertically and spread apart. The liberals can therefore read between the lines.

  • Richard Aubrey says:

    Patterico’s case was hilarious. Four degrees of separation from Trump and WE GOT’IM NOW, BY GOLLY! HE’S TOAST!
    You had to be following Patterico to see how anxious he was to believe the nuttiest stuff if it might, possibly, reflect on Trump.
