On Thursday, people across the nation tuned in to watch Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh give their testimonies in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

And nationwide, people were tweeting their reactions. Author Stephen King was among them. And he made it very, very clear who he was supporting.

Here’s what he wrote:

As the day was drawing to a close, King posted the following tweet, which has racked over 150,000 likes and shared over 42,000 times.

Finally, King used a reference from the Coen brothers’ Miller’s Crossing to draw a parallel with Kavanaugh.

Here, King is referring to a line spoken by John Turturro’s character, Bernie Bernbaum, to main character Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne).

Earlier in the film, Reagan takes mercy on Bernbaum, opting not to kill after the man breaks down crying in front of him.

Later, we realize his tears were nothing more than an attempt to save himself.

Wisconsin Dairy Farmer Dumps 56,000 Pounds Of Milk Because ‘No One’s Buying It’

The coronavirus pandemic has dried up the marketplace for dairy products as restaurants, schools and businesses in food service have been closed. Now, dairy farmers are flushing away milk because no one is buying.

Mark Mueller, a Wisconsin dairy farmer said he dumped 56,000 pounds of milk on Friday, blaming restaurant closures because there was no place for him to haul his product.

The milk harvested from the nearly 1,000 cows will rot, Mueller told WFRV.

Mueller said he’s worried the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing dairy farmers from getting their milk to the market.

“It’s really depressing,” said Mueller. “It’s like all your hard work just running down the drain.”

Another farmer, Farmer Ryan Elbe, said his dairy farm is dumping about 30,000 gallons (113,562 liters) a day.

“We thought this would never happen,” Elbe said. “Everybody’s rushing to the grocery store to get food, and we have food that’s literally being dumped down the drain.”

CBS12 reported that Elbe’s cooperative, Dairy Farmers of America, has agreed to pay them for milk that’s being dumped.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
