Dumas apologized for the tweet Sunday and blamed personal problems and “frustration” for her comments.
The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally. The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it.

Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts on Saturday evening despite a drawn-out confirmation battle, which included allegations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford, among other women. Kavanaugh has denied all wrongdoing and claimed the hearings were nothing more than a political hit job.
