In Special New Episode, Thomas & Friends Come Out Against Kavanaugh Nomination

U.S.—In a special new episode of Thomas & Friends, the eponymous tank engine and his diverse group of train pals unanimously came out against the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Thursday.

Thomas and friends add their voice to a chorus of entirely non-partisan groups who have come out against Kavanaugh, including Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Burger King Kid's Club.

"Kavanaugh is taking the U.S. down the wrong set of tracks," said Thomas in the episode, rushed to Netflix ahead of the looming Senate vote. "It's time to tie Kavanaugh down to the tracks and run him over as we steamroll the Republicans in November."

"Chugga! Chugga! Nope! Chugga! Chugga! Nope!" they chanted, encouraging children to sing along.

The remainder of the episode focused on a subplot in which Percy the Small Engine struggled with his identity, and ultimately came out as a train who goes both ways down the tracks.
