On Tuesday, political commentator Angela Rye hammered Trump defender Mike Shields while talking about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sex assault accusations.
During the discussion with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Rye argued that Dr. Christian Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, deserved her day in court.
“The real challenge is Republicans have demonstrated a pattern and practice of not caring about women. I think this is a bipartisan, women being treated as objects, and like toys,” Rye said.
Shields refuted by calling the Democratic party and their agenda to delay Kavanaugh’s hearing as “militant.”
“Anyone who understands the Senate knows you can move a vote, and you can lose a vote. The Democrats have been pretty open and clear that their entire tactic is to delay,” Sheilds said. “What this is about on the left is pro-choice. The largest base of the Democratic Party, the most active and now becoming a borderline militant base of the democratic party — are the pro-choice activists.”
Rye stopped him right in his tracks. “Republicans have women issues. You just called women having the right to choose, ‘militant,’ come on,” she said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied ‘proudly and with impunity’ because she was raised to be ‘impervious to reason’: WH reporter
Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blasted by a White House correspondent for her brazen lying from the White House podium.
"Sarah Sanders is a true believer. Conditioned by an upbringing rooted in Christian rhetoric that's impervious to reason, she views the world through a lens in which everything exists in absolutes," Playboy magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem wrote.
Her father, Mike Huckabee, is an Evangelical pastor who served as the Republican governor of Arkansas prior to unsuccessful presidential bids.
Scaramucci: Trump will ‘flip out on you’ if you lick your finger and touch something on his desk
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," anchor Erin Burnett talked to former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci about President Donald Trump's hysteria over chief of staff Mick Mulvaney coughing in his presence.
"Does behavior like that from him, from the top, send a message about how he treats people or how others should treat people, or do you not have any concern?" asked Burnett.
"I — well, listen, I sort of think it's unfair. Every one of us have been temperamental from time to time," said Scaramucci, who was fired after just 10 days in the White House for extremely obscene comments about Steve Bannon. "I think it's very unfair to pick and choose these — clearly caught on camera. We're in the world of social media now. Many of us have said things that they've regretted saying, myself included especially, Erin. But what happens in the social media and our fishbowl — and the White House isn't even a fishbowl, it's a full-blown aquarium."
White House either lied or there was ‘gross mismanagement’ for not knowing Shanahan’s past: David Gergen
On Tuesday, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan withdrew his nomination as new details came to life about a violent series of domestic disputes within his family, including an incident in which he defended his son for assaulting his wife with a baseball bat.
Former White House official David Gergen scorned the idea that the White House and Senate Republicans were not aware of this information, noting that Shanahan was already confirmed to a high-ranking office in the Pentagon and would have already undergone a rigorous FBI background check.
