In a social media post on Saturday, a writer for CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" seemingly celebrated the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's reputation during his bruising and bitterly partisan confirmation battle.
"Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life," the writer, Ariel Dumas, posted on Twitter. Dumas later briefly made her account private, preventing others from viewing her posts without her approval.
Her tweet came as the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a 50-48 vote, with Republicans saying that the several allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct brought against him simply lacked sufficient corroboration and credibility.
Dumas apologized on Sunday, claiming she was being "sarcastic" because Kavanaugh's elevation to the Supreme Court demonstrated that his life had not, in fact, been entirely derailed by the accusations as some Republicans had claimed.
"Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life."
"The Late Show" writer Ariel Dumas (deleted tweet) "The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally," Dumas wrote. "The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness cant be accurately conveyed on twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it."

Colbert is an unfunny asshole.
Guess what, dirtbag, you didn’t ruin Justice Kavanaugh’s life. He has survived the mudslinging destruction attempt and, like Clarence Thomas, will go on to be a superb Supreme Court Justice despite your kind’s smear techniques....while you sob in your little corner of the world.
You may have tainted his reputation with a certain percentage of the population, but for the next three decades he gets to make decisions that directly effect your life. Who won?
I’m very surprised the ‘joke writer’ is even pretending to apologize for her hateful remark. Maybe a big advertiser of the show did not like it, and had the courage to speak up.
I imagine it will his daughters that are most deeply harmed.
Very sad that such demented people get to work on a major TV network.
Don’t worry. he’ll have his revenge over the next 30 years.
Just like Justice Thomas.
Uh...he is now an associate justice on the United States Supreme Court with a life time appointment. That is not a ruined life. Leftists really are mentally disturbed.
Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”
Well Ariel, looking forward to returning the favor...
This was on FB earlier. People were not kind to her.
Only Roseanne Barr gets fired for twitter comments.
“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”
And his family?
I look forward to all the 5-4 decisions which are going to ruin her leftist life.
She might think differently if in the future, she is accused of a crime without any evidence proffered.
What would happen if someone came forward and claimed she molested a child she babysat for as a teenager?
Ariel must enjoy killing children in the womb.
What do you expect from these no life ass clowns..they knew this was never about Christine Ford, they figured out she lied a long time ago..this was about destroying a good man because he disagrees with their Communist agenda..just know that liberals are the most unhappy pieces of crap you can ever meet..They hate their own existence, show me ONE happy liberal, because Ive never met one
You may have tainted his reputation with a certain percentage of the population, but for the next three decades he gets to make decisions that directly effect your life.
And it will probably be known only to him how long he holds a grudge and how that might affect his opinions. I hope that keeps the twetter twit up at night, the snowflake.
A very pompous, smug individual whom as a liberal would turn a good lunch to wretch.
