Fox’s Tomi Lahren says she’s disappointed ‘as a woman’ in Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for coming forward

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.”

Lahren agreed.

“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.”
