During a panel discussion on why the White House and the Republican party are going forward with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh despite sex assault allegations, an MSNBC legal analyst said they are counting on the base to reject accuser Christine Ford’s claims.
Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, Above the Law editor Elie Mystal said Trump voters — including the white women who ignored Trump’s comments about grabbing women by their genitalia — are unwilling to take a woman’s word against a man.
“They [the GOP] don’t want the truth,” Mystal explained. “The Democrats sometimes fall for this. The Senate Republicans desperately want to make this ‘he said, she said’ because they are confident in their base and the 53 percent of the white women who already voted for Donald Trump. They are confident if you put him versus her in a one-on-one situation, their people will say ‘Tarzan more truth than Jane. Jane just talking rib.”
“That is what they think their base will say,” he continued. “It’s not like that.”

Melania Trump ripped for bragging about helping children while her husband runs concentration camps for kids
Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.
"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.
The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.
Border Patrol blocking Americans from donating toothbrushes and diapers for detained children
On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.
About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.
But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon
When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.
And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
