CNN’s Rick Santorum smacked down after claiming Christine Ford is ‘complicit’ in Democratic plot to tank Brett Kavanaugh

Published

on

Rick Santorum got an early-morning schooling Friday on CNN’s “New Day”, when he tried to claim Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser was “complicit” in a Democratic plot to destroy Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

In the wake of President Trump’s Thursday night swipes at Ford, Santorum suggested the president was responding to “the way Dianne Feinstein and the way the Democrats handled it.”

“When you look at how it was handled and the complicity potentially of Ms. Blasey-Ford,” Santorum began when host John Berman cut him off.

“‘Complicity’? I’m sorry, ‘complicity’?” asked a stunned Berman as Santorum, suddenly aware he was cornered, began stammering.

“She first raised this when he was a candidate and not even the nominee,” Berman reminded Santorum. “She told her therapist six years ago that this happened. I’m not sure what her complicity is when once her name leaked she said ‘yes, this happened’. Complicity, what?”

Santorum responded by impugning Ms. Ford’s character saying, “she obviously came forward because she wanted to have an impact on the process.”

“She told the story anonymously earlier because she wanted the senators to know. She came forward publicly because she was getting calls to her house and they were coming by her door and her life was being turned upside down,” Berman reminded Santorum for a second time. “If you are a victim of sexual assault, which she says that she is, you have a right to come forward and tell your story.”

Santorum said she had a right to tell her story, but insisted that she had no right to remain anonymous.

With Santorum frantically filibustering, a visibly unimpressed Berman reminded the conservative pundit for a third time, “you do know often sexual assault victims are scared for their safety and that’s why they don’t come forward, and they are embarrassed. There are myriad reasons.”

‘I told you this would happen’: CNN’s Cuomo tears into Trump for trying to ruin Dr Fauci

Published

on

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump for his latest attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci.

"Fauci is not to blame for any of this. Trump is, period," said Cuomo. "And now that the reality is sinking in to blue and red, to left, right, and reasonable, Trump is doing what he always does: trying to shift blame to someone else. And we must reject efforts to shift stink onto the one man we can trust."

"Now, in these White House attacks, we see their principles on display as well, don't we?" said Cuomo. "Eat your own, lie about Fauci, deny your role, and defy the mandate of leadership that we gave you. And how about using an unnamed official to smear the only credible voice they have on this voice. Where are the worries about anonymous sources now, Mr. President? This is making America great again? You pardon a convicted liar and lie about a man with a conviction to fight a pandemic, which you apparently lack."
