Hyde-Smith Vows to Confirm Kavanaugh at Trump’s Mississippi Stop

Thousands of people gathered to listen to President Donald Trump speak in Southaven Tuesday, Oct. 2. The president’s only stop in Mississippi was part of his “Make America Great Again” tour.

Topics ranged from healthcare to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing, impending confirmation and Senate vote. Mississippi Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith vowed she would vote ‘yes’ for Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The president had another key Mississippi politician join him on stage —Governor Phil Bryant. Bryant set the stage for the crowd before the president’s speech asking, “Are we proud to have Donald J. Trump here in Mississippi?”

The crowd replied with big applause and cheers.

“We’re going to get back on Air Force One and we’re going back to Washington, because you know what? We’ve got a Supreme Court Justice to get confirmed,” said Hyde-Smith.

President Trump also showed his support for Kavanaugh and indicated this case is setting a dangerous precedent.

“Guilty until proven innocent… that’s very dangerous for our country… that’s very dangerous for our country,” he said.


Broadcast journalism students from the University of Mississippi, Thomas Goris and Alec Keyzer-Andre, covered the rally for HottyToddy.com.
