One Fox News pundit went into full attack mode when it came to Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
During a panel discussion with host Steve Hilton, Former US Attorney Joseph diGenova went after Ford personally, attacking her as immature, damaged and either dumb or a liar.
“Quite frankly, her testimony the other day was far from credible,” he began. She’s a very, very disturbed woman with clear emotional and psychological problems. This is a 55-year-old adult who testified like an adolescent. Not a single corroborating detail.”
He claimed that because she testified she didn’t know the committee offered to fly out to get her testimony that she is a liar. Her attorneys said that they knew of the committee’s decision, Ford told the committee she likely misunderstood what was being presented to her as an option. Ford said that she has been forced to move twice in the past few months and has struggled as death threats came in.
Still, diGenova thought it was enough to discredit her.
“That means she’s either dumb as a post or she lied to the committee under oath,” he continued. “I think Christine Ford is a very sad woman and not a thing that she said should be believed and none of it has been corroborated.”
Hilton stammered trying to respond. He said he didn’t agree with the assessment and excused any possibility of her being “disturbed” coming from something very disturbing that happened to her in her teens.
“She may very well believe that something happened to her, but none of it relates to Brett Kavanaugh, and she presented no evidence other than her stark raving testimony that it was he,” diGenova closed.
The other panelists then followed up, agreeing with the former U.S Attorney and worked to discredit Ford’s claims.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr
President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.
The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.
‘The mess right in front of us’: Impeachment hearings reveal as much about dishonest congressional GOPers as Trump
If the point of Wednesday's public testimony opening impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump were meant to show off credible accounts from straight-laced, super-patriotic, service-oriented diplomats, they were bulls-eyes.
If the point of Republican questionings was to make a mockery of the proceedings, they may have boomeranged—the Republicans are the ones who come across as partisan nitpickers intentionally trying to misdirect the point, underlying meaning and urgency of these proceedings.
If the overall tone, as Democratic leaders insist, was supposed to reflect somber, serious, sober consideration, well, they did that and more. Indeed, they made it downright scary to learn that Donald Trump and his team are running around in ways that show little respect for other nations, no understanding of diplomacy and no ability to actually handle appropriate communications within his team.
‘A real ugly turning point’: Ex-DOJ official predicts Republicans will ‘try to blow it all up’ after their defense strategy tanked
MSNBC’s Matthew Miller, a former Justice Department spokesperson, offered an ominous prediction on Wednesday about Republicans’ strategy going forward after the first day of the public impeachment proceedings of President Donald Trump.
Speaking on “Deadline: White House,” he observed that the day had been a bad one for the GOP.
“This is in a lot of ways, the day that all of the Republican defenses died,” Miller said.
He continued: “Today will mark a real ugly turning point in how the Republicans approach this going forward. They’re gonna realize they can’t have another day like today. They can’t have a hearing Friday that goes like today’s, they can’t have hearings next week that go like today’s. The president gets television very much — he’s going to know how bad this went today. And I suspect at the next hearing, we will see some increasingly desperate and very ugly tactics from Nunes and the rest of them. Maybe naming the whistleblower. Increased, stepped-up attacks on the civil servants who are coming forward.”
