Christine Blasey Ford
Morning Joe, normally the go-to place for Trump antagonism, was surprisingly supportive today of the Republican decision to move to a Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh next Wednesday, rejecting Dem demands for an investigation of Christine Ford's allegations. Mika Brzezinski accused the Democrats of "moving the goal posts." Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle scoffed at the idea of an FBI investigation: "investigate what?" Anti-Trump Republican Susan Del Percio said if Ford is not willing to testify on Monday, "what right does she have to delay this or ask for the FBI investigation?"
ABC News political analyst and former George W. Bush campaign official Matthew Dowd decided not to wait until Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Instead, Dowd not only hammered the current nominee, but he also reached all the way back to 1991 and stated that Clarence Thomas has at least one thing in common with Kavanaugh: They’re both “sexual predators.”
With a week to go until the scheduled Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to interview Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal media were frantically trying to paint the proceedings as misogynistic Republican men beating up on an innocent victim. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a whole segment during their Tuesday broadcasts stoking those fears.
George Stephanopoulos, who attempted to destroy sexual abuse accusers of Bill Clinton, is worried about people not believing the accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The former Clinton White House operative turned Good Morning America co-host on Tuesday fretted, “... To vote for Kavanaugh, you’re going to have to, at some level, be saying, ‘She’s not telling the truth.’”
Behold, the latest example from CNN Politics reporter Chris Cillizza showcasing why anyone can get a job in political journalism and punditry, no matter how flaming hot your takes can be. Tuesday afternoon, Cillizza falsely tweeted that President Trump had told reporters that he doesn’t want the FBI involved in the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
On Monday night, Fox News Channel hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham pointed out the Democratic double standards when it came to how they reacted to sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh versus allegations and proven misdeeds among members of their own party.
During a panel discussion on Tuesday’s Good Morning America about the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ABC News Legal Correspondent Sunny Hostin fretted that the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, would be put “on trial” during a Senate hearing scheduled for Monday and warned the “older white men” in the GOP to be “very careful” in their questioning.
Appearing on Tuesday’s Today show, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd suggested that the best course of action for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh might just be to withdraw rather than defend himself against sexual assault allegations during a public Senate hearing scheduled for Monday. The NBC News Political Director feared that any hearing would be a “tinderbox” that could “erupt a culture war.”
Introducing Jill Abramson on CNN this morning, Alisyn Camerota said, "you say that you shudder to think what will happen" when Christine Ford is questioned at Monday's scheduled Senate hearing. Replied Abramson: "I think that the Republicans, despite all the changes that have happened in the generations since those [Clarence Thomas] hearings, are still going to go in with a strategy to save this nomination at all costs. And if that means destroying, destroying Dr. Ford, I hate to even think about it, but I think it's going to be the same kind of political circus that we saw back in 1991. That's what worries me."
Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.
With the charges of an alleged attempted sexual assault swirling around the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media pounced on the obligatory comparison to the allegations of sexual misconduct against Justice Clarence Thomas by Anita Hill. On NBC Nightly News, correspondent Andrea Mitchell rewrote history and implied that Hill’s claims were credible, hoping the charges would sink the nomination this time around.
In just over 11 minutes on Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, one panel encapsulated why the liberal media are not fans of due process regarding the sexual misconduct claim against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and questioning the accuser’s story equates to painful sexism.
