On Thursday, political commentator Symone Sanders and conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter exploded at each other during a panel discussion with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The two were discussing Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegation. Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assulting Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during a party while the two were in high school.
“I think Dr. Ford is weighing [her options]. Republicans have been bullying her into saying it’s Monday or no day. And because of Dr. Ford’s attorneys have not responded, I think she weighed her options,” Sanders said.
Carpenter said that it was okay for the GOP to have a timely confirmation hearing.
“Republicans are perfectly within their rights to say —let’s make this happen in a timely manner. Given the threats in this environment, I think it becomes even more important that they reach a speedy resolution,” Carpenter said.
Symone interrupted Carpenter by saying that Dr. Ford character is being attacked. However, Carpenter claimed that Kavanaugh was equally a victim.
“How many people are disparaging him without confirmed evidence that he did that? Let’s not pretend this is happening one way,” Carpenter said.

White House press secretary urged to do her job: ‘We don’t pay you to be a Twitter troll’
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was blasted on Saturday over the confusion resulting from her refusal to hold daily press briefings.
CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was alarmed that Grisham's assistant, Hogan Gidley, was forcing reporters to refer to his remarks as coming from a "sources close to the President's legal team."
