“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy on Friday pushed a widely derided theory by conservative operative Ed Whelan claiming that Christine Blasey Ford was attacked by a doppelganger who bore a striking resemblance to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Whelan on Thursday night peddled a theory that Ford might have been attacked 35 years ago by a classmate of Kavanaugh’s who happened to live in the area and who also bore something of a resemblance to him.
Although Ford herself went on the record to shoot down the theory, Doocy nonetheless seemed impressed by Whelan’s amateur detective work, in which he implied that Kavanaugh’s classmate was an attempted rapist despite admitting he had no evidence to prove it.
“A fellow by the name of Ed Whelan, who had been one of the clerks for Antonin Scalia, and a supporter of Judge Kavanaugh, he looked at what Christine Ford told the Washington Post… and figured out what house it may have happened at,” he said. “And then [he] realized whose house it was and looked at a picture of the young man who lived there at the time who was a classmate of Mr. Kavanaugh’s, put up side-by-side images. They look a lot alike!”
Co-host Ed Henry, however, pointed out to Doocy that the theory had been shot down by Ford, but he still left open the possibility that it could be true.
“So we’ll see!” he said.

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
