Trump-loving conservative Ben Shapiro is beginning a new Fox News show in the coming weeks, and on Saturday he appeared in Jesse Watters show to discuss it and the current state of the Kavanaugh nomination.
Shapiro said that there is “no evidence” of the violent sexual assault Dr. Christine Blasey Ford describes, which she revealed for the first time over the summer and which has not been investigated by any law enforcement agency.
“There’s no other evidence. There are no other accounts of this happening,” Shapiro said. “There are no contemporaneous accounts of this happening, her telling anyone else at the time. No one else has made a similar accusation.”
Shapiro said that Blasey Ford “should be pretty eager to testify about this, presumably under oath.”
Shaprio, who graduated from Harvard Law School before beginning his career decrying the “elites,” appeared to become confused about the nature of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, referring to Kavanaugh’s accuser a “plaintiff” and the nominee as a “defendant.”
“They’ve been setting up poison pill conditions for the hearing, that just cannot stand, like Kavanaugh’s supposed to testify before she does,” Shapiro said. “In what situation has a defendant ever testified before a plaintiff? It doesn’t work that way.”
REVEALED: An Obama-era plan to protect medical workers in a pandemic was thwarted under Trump
President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his Democratic predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, left him ill-prepared to handle a major health crisis when, in fact, Obama’s administration left behind a comprehensive pandemic game plan that included a 69-page playbook. But Trump’s administration abandoned those Obama-era recommendations. On top of that, National Public Radio’s Brian Mann is reporting that Trump’s administration, in 2017, “stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19.”
‘Don’t be a sucker’: CNN’s Cuomo begs viewers not to let Trump’s antics distract from the horror of COVID deaths
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo warned viewers not to be taken in by President Donald Trump's distraction tactics — and instead focus on the loss of human life from the coronavirus pandemic.
"It's a sad night. I don't know any other way to put it," said Cuomo. "I don't even like that the music's playing, to be honest. It's just three months. We've lost a hundred thousand lives. Do you need band music to tell you it's something urgent?"
"We were told this pandemic would magically disappear without any real trouble. A couple dozen cases," said Cuomo. "Today, did you hear what our president, Donald John Trump, said to calm and reassure our nerves, that we will do everything we can to keep us safe as we reopen and that he will make it his life's focus because that what a president does? Did you hear him say that? Me either. Not a damn word from Trump as this country is just struggling to get our heads and our hearts, let alone our hands around processing such loss so quickly. Suddenly he is now at a loss. Not even a tweet."
Here’s the real reason Trump and the GOP don’t want mail-in voting
Trump and Republicans don’t want mail-in voting this November because it blows up a couple of their most effective voter suppression schemes.
In presidential elections dating back to 2000, there’s been noticeable media coverage of long lines in majority-black precincts; commentators sometimes wonder out loud why people would have to wait in line 8 hours to vote in, for example, inner city Ohio in 2004 or Milwaukee in the 2020 primaries.
