According to people who have worked closely with President Trump, the former reality TV show host hates it when men show weakness. Trump had said in June that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is “meek and mild.” Trump tweeted in March that former Vice President Joe Biden is “mentally and physically” weak and that if the two engaged in a physical fight, Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way.” In an April 2016 tweet, Trump called out “Lyin’ Ted Cruz” and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, alleging that the two had teamed up against him, which “shows weakness.” He also often refers to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., as “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on the first season of Trump’s The Apprentice, as well as a former White House adviser, tweeted on Thursday that she wondered how Trump feels about Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in which he teared up and sniffled through his opening remarks.

Plenty of others also commented that they thought Trump would not like Kavanaugh’s show of emotion.

Regardless of how Trump would view his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and his emotional testimony, many people are comparing his statement with Christine Blasey Ford’s earlier appearance before the committee: namely, that the alleged victim of sexual assault firmly, albeit nervously, spoke about the trauma she says she suffered, while Kavanaugh teared up about his father and about keeping calendars, and yelled at senators’ questioning. Some even commented that Kavanaugh was crying because he knew that he was guilty of the crimes of which he was accused.

The comments suggesting that Kavanaugh perhaps does not have the temperament to serve as a Supreme Court judge are drawing ironic comparisons to claims that women are too emotional to serve in politics.
