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.”
Nate Silver claps back at right-wing pollster for accusing him of fraud
One of the worst-performing national pollsters in the 2018 election cycle was Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning outfit that is consistently the only one to show President Donald Trump with a net positive approval rating. In 2018, Rasmussen showed Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot by 1 point — but Democrats won the popular vote by 8.4 points.
Nonetheless, Rasmussen is proud of its methodology and particularly irritated when polling analyst and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver points out their inaccuracy. Over the past two weeks, they have twice accused him of "fraud" and characterized his analyses as "corrupt."
Trump told Republicans he didn’t care ‘about terrorists 7,000 miles away’
President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.
Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.
The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.
The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.
Diplomat testified of fear Rudy wanted ‘grand bargain with Russia where we throw Ukraine under the bus’: report
President Donald Trump's former special envoy to Ukraine testified about fears that Rudy Giuliani was trying to cut a "grand bargain" with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, according to a new report in Axios.
Volker reportedly testified that Bill Taylor was reluctant to take the position of acting ambassador to Ukraine after the firing of Marie Yovanovitch.
"He was just worried [Ukraine] was going to get undermined at some point,” Volker reportedly testified. “Hanging over everyone’s head in the expert community is, is there some grand bargain with Russia where we throw Ukraine under the bus?”
