Entertainment “We Should Be Like Brett Kavanaugh and Drink”: Inside the Celebrity-Studded Polo Match Brought to a Halt by Saturday’s Senate Vote Published 2 months ago on October 8, 2018 By Liz Orhent Share Tweet Samantha Ronson and Ellen Pompeo. The ninth annual Los Angeles Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday gave way to a somber mood on Saturday, when news broke that the U.S. Senate had confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the Supreme Court. “It’s disgusting. The Senate should be ashamed,“ said Ellen Pompeo. “I just can’t believe that victims of sexual assault don’t matter to these people. It’s just shocking. I’m so angry that women don’t matter. I wish there were brighter days ahead, but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon. I can’t be positive today. We should be like Brett Kavanaugh and drink. How else are we supposed to deal with it?” Christina Hendricks and her husband Geoffrey Arend watched the 50-48 Senate vote while on their way to the Polo Classic, held at Will Rogers State Historic Park. Hendricks emphasized that it’s vital not to forget about Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate about Kavanaugh’s alleged assault, and the other women who came forward with their own allegations against him. (Kavanaugh has denied all of the allegations.) “I just hope that this decision doesn’t dissuade women from coming out and telling their story of abuse,” said Hendricks. “The way our current government mocked and diminished people who have been victims is so upsetting, but they shouldn’t be afraid to come out. There are plenty of people who believe them and support them. Now is the time more than ever to support each other and never let this happen again. It’s a sad day.” Angela Sarafyan, star of HBO’s Westworld, urged anyone upset about Kavanaugh’s nomination to channel that energy into political action. “The thing that bothers me the most about politics is that we forget that it’s really about human rights,” she said. “Essentially, we can’t be indifferent towards it. We can’t say, ‘I don’t get involved in politics. It’s not me, it’s not my job.’ We all have to fight in what we believe in and we can’t be passive about our rights as humans. When change is on the verge, there’s more resistance and that’s sort of what we are looking at right now. We have to get involved now.” Get Vanity Fair’s Cocktail Hour Our essential brief on culture, the news, and more. And it’s on the house.
