A CNN panel was derailed Monday evening when a former GOP Senate adviser suggested that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, had spoken out enough about the incident.
Scott Jennings, a former senior adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), said he believes Kavanaugh and his wife Ashely should repeat their Monday night Fox News interview every day “until the hearing on Thursday” — a move host Kate Bolduan characterized as a “PR roadshow.”
The Nation‘s Joan Walsh then pointed out that Dr. Blasey Ford has been asked “multiple times” to do interviews and declined — a statement Jennings refuted.
“She talked to the Washington Post, she was the first to talk!” the former GOP Senate aide interjected, adding that her words had been restated on TV.
“We’re talking about television interviews,” Walsh noted as Jennings continued to speak over her.
“Her words have gotten plenty of airtime versus Kavanaugh,” he added. “Come on, guys.”
The host noted that CNN has publicized the nominee’s denial and Donald Trump’s defense of his character, ending the conservation.

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

Speaking with CNN host Ana Cabrera, journalist Elaina Plott said Ivanka's influence on her father has been overstated since the beginning of his presidency and she moves into the public eye when it benefits her.
CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.
While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
