(7 Oct 2018) DE NIRO: BRETT KAVANAUGH'S SUPREME COURT CONFIRMATION 'SAD, SAD' He's often one of Hollywood most politically outspoken celebrities. But not Saturday night (6 OCTOBER), when actor Robert De Niro was whisked away from reporters after doing only a handful of interviews at the Carousel of Hope Ball. A fundraiser for the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, the annual event supports both the Center's care facilities, as well as the Children's Diabetes Foundation's efforts to find a cure for those with Type 1 diabetes. De Niro was the night's honoree, for his longtime support of the Center and Foundation. When the AP reporter shouted a question to the actor about his reaction to Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, De Niro responded "Sad, sad," as he was pulled away by a publicist. The event's co-music chairman Quincy Jones didn't seem any happier when asked about the lifetime appointment. "Don't even go there, man," the legendary music producer replied. "Don't even go there. It's like a dictatorship. Hate our government." Emmy-winning veteran actress Loretta Devine got more specific when expressing her displeasure with the appointment of Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault by professor Christine Blasey Ford. Kavanaugh denied the allegations. "Oh, I just hoped it would be different," Devine said of the confirmation. "It just would mean so much I think to women to get a shoutout that, 'We care about you.' It would just help so much just to tell our daughters they don't have to be afraid in this world, that, you know, that they are looked out for. And I think you are in a minority, you live with all these fears that are not normal for a lot of people, so they don't even understand what it's like. And they we've been in the fight for so long, so hard, for so many things. and just been treated like what we are called, 'the weaker sex'. So, you know, you just hope sometimes, that's all." Actress Suzanne Somers said she had doubts about Blasey's credibility. "I believed him. I believed him. No one, no one could collaborate. So, the presumption of guilt really bothered me. This is America. I think we have the presumption of innocent 'till proven guilty, and he wasn't proven guilty." Recording artist Billy Davis, Jr. said he felt the Blasey-Kavanaugh case, "was never really resolved. You know, it just is still out there. And everybody's wondering ..." Added his singing partner and wife Marilyn McCoo: "We need some real answers. Real truth. ... You know, we as Americans like to know the truth, and we get tired of being lied to." "It's disgusting. It's despicable," noted songwriter Diane Warren. "And it means, like, 'Who are we?' It's unbelievable that this guy got in."
