Donald Trump Jr. pushes article that tries to slut shame Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday promoted a tweet by right-wing propagandist Dinesh D’Souza that explicitly endorses a blog post whose sole purpose is to slut shame the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape.

“No one in the media is covering the culture of hookups and binge drinking the accuser was part of,” wrote D’Souza in the tweet that was retweeted by Trump Jr. “Here’s what they’re trying to cover up.”

Below D’Souza’s tweet was a link to an article at a blog called “The Cult of the First Amendment” that accused Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford of taking part in “binge drinking and promiscuity” while in high school.

The article posts photos allegedly from Ford’s high school yearbook that relate to drinking and sex — although nowhere in the messages is Ford herself actually mentioned as taking part in such activities.

Nonetheless, the post claims that the yearbooks are relevant to show that the culture at the Holton-Arms School produces loose women who drink to excess.

“The resistance media has been singularly focused on Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbooks, which imply that he got drunk and threw up,” the post states. “There’s no need to imply anything from the Holton-Arms yearbooks. It’s all there in focus, and the written word too. All of the sordid details as approved for publication by a ‘look the other way’ faculty.”

Trump is endangering the US by governing like he’s directing a reality TV show: officials

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
