Brett Kavanagh is having a bad week. No, not the public figure Brett Kavanaugh; that guy was just confirmed for a lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court. His week is going great. For the other Brett, not so much.
This other Brett Kavanagh's surname may be missing a "u" but it's close enough that the salesman from Kentucky says his phone has been blowing up since the Senate hearings began.
He took to Twitter to post his woes:
This is a terrible time to be named Brett Kavanagh— Brett Kavanagh (@Brett Kavanagh)1538785242.0
At least Kavanagh can take heart that he is not alone. With over a million likes, someone is bound to feel his pain.
