Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren on Wednesday said that she was “disappointed as a woman” in Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for coming forward with sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Lahren accused Democrats of a “double standard” because they have not attacked Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) over allegations made by his ex-girlfriend. For his part, Ellison has denied the domestic assault accusations.
“The double standard is the only standard on the left,” Lahren opined. “I’m so sick and tired of sexual assault and abuse being used as a political football and being politicized. We’ve come to this point where we’re trying to overcorrect with the ‘Me Too’ movement and we’re taking accusations as truth, as Gospel.”
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade suggested that Ford’s accusations could not be trusted because the alleged incident happened decades ago.
“I think there is a huge difference between a couple of years ago and 36 years ago,” Kilmeade opined, “between physical evidence and reports and someone speculating what time and what year and what summer something happened.”
“When we’re talking about abuse, when we’re talking about sexual assault or harassment it needs to be taken seriously on both sides of the aisle,” she insisted. “But we need to have some common sense when we’re looking at these, case by case.”
“And what infuriates me so much about what’s happening with Judge Kavanaugh is this doesn’t seem like a true case of victimhood,” Lahren continued. “It seems more like a case of opportunity for political purposes that should never have a place in a political process.”
Lahren added: “It’s really disappointing to see it. As a woman, I’m disappointed to see other women using it in that way.”

‘A threat to virtually everything that the United States should stand for’: Scathing NYT op-ed on Trump goes viral
A damning piece by New York Times Opinion Columnist David Leonhardt is going viral. “Donald Trump vs. the United States of America” says it’s “Just the facts, in 40 sentences.”
That’s all it is.
40 sentences, 40 facts chronicling President Donald Trump’s lawlessness, self-dealing, un-American behavior, attempts to do real damage to vital institutions, and grotesque acts. Some are impeachable offenses. Some are just not worthy – or are disqualifying – of a president of the United States.
Mississippi: African American voters sue over election law rooted in the state’s racist past
A lawsuit over a Mississippi election law, if successful, will change the way that state elects its governor.
Four African Americans filed the federal civil rights lawsuit in May 2019, charging that the way their state elects its statewide officials violates the Voting Rights Act, the 14th Amendment and the principle of “one-person, one-vote.”
To win election, a candidate for governor of Mississippi has to win an outright majority of the popular vote – and win a majority of the state’s 122 House districts.
Fox & Friends pushes lies and distortions about intel whistleblower: ‘Almost as if they heard a rumor’
"Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy pushed inaccurate claims about a whistleblower complaint filed by an intelligence official against President Donald Trump.
The Fox News broadcaster downplayed the complaint, which reportedly involved Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine's president to dig up dirt against Joe Biden, and falsely claimed that Congress had no authority to investigate.
"In this country, you know, we've heard a lot over the last couple of years about how the Democrats would like to impeach the president of the United States," Doocy said, and co-host Brian Kilmeade feigned shock.
