Fox News pundit Kimberly Fletcher asserted on Sunday that the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford “diminishes” every woman that will ever be sexually assaulted.
“Does the fact that you support Brett Kavanaugh mean that you don’t want to hear from anyone who has ever had one of these unfortunate incidents?” Fox News host Pete Hegseth asked Fletcher, who heads an activist group that supported Kavanaugh.
“Women should be heard and we want them to be heard,” Fletcher insisted. “The problem was, it was actually the Democrats and the media that didn’t want to hear from us.”
“Actually, a lot of women were silenced — and it was those who supported Kavanaugh,” she opined.
“What do you think about the idea that the left wants men basically out of the conversation?” Fox New co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy asked. “They have nothing to contribute and how will that advance what you want to see happen?”
“I am the mother of eight children,” Fletcher replied. “Six sons, two daughters. And I have to say that I am — like a lot of mothers — our email, our Facebook page, every social media outlet has been flooded by mothers who are concerned about their sons and their husbands and what this means.”
“But we’re also concerned about our daughters,” she continued. “When sitting senators of the United States are going to diminish the voice of women who have been affected by sexual abuse and turn it into a weapon for political gain, it diminishes the voice of every woman that has ever been or will ever be sexually assaulted or abused.”
“And that concerns me for my daughters and I’m very concerned about these attacks on our sons,” Fletcher added, “when you can just randomly say, ‘They did something,’ and everybody just has to believe women? All the ‘believe women’ shirts that were flooding the whole entire Capitol area, to believe women all the time and never believe men?”
Fletcher called the trend “a real problem in our culture.”

Michael Moore breaks down why Trump is ‘scared’ of The Squad: ‘They’re the force out there!’
Legendary filmmaker Michael Moore revealed why President Donald Trump is so scared of the women of color in Congress known as The Squad.
The Squad is made up of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"So, Michael, when your political opposition tells you this is the play we’re going to run and the president underscores it, and they’re running this play, is there any — is The Squad blameless for giving the president a steady stream of oxygen and ammunition?" MSNBC's Brian Williams asked.
"I’m so glad he’s that frightened of them, both he and [Benjamin] Netanyahu are scared of them. And the reason they are is — and this is why Trump isn’t as dumb as he comes off," Moore said.
Trump has spent his vacation golfing, watching cable TV — and panicking about a recession: AP
While President Donald Trump has been able to golf frequently while on vacation in New Jersey, he may not return to DC well-rested.
"Trump has spent much of the week at his New Jersey golf club, many of his mornings on the links, his afternoons watching cable television and his evenings calling confidants and business executives to get their take on the market’s volatility," the Associated Press reported Friday.
"Though he has expressed private worries about Wall Street, he is also skeptical about some of the weaker economic indicators, wondering if the media and establishment figures are manipulating the data to make him look bad, according to two Republicans close to the White House, not authorized to discuss private conversations," the AP noted.
Rick Wilsons destroys Trump for ’punitive ‘dickishness’ and ‘performative assh*lery’ on HBO’s Real Time
Republican strategist Rick Wilson slammed the Trump administration on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher on Friday.
Wilson is the author of the 2018 book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.
The GOP consultant said America needs to replace the "Goddamn oil lobbyist who runs the f*cking EPA right now."
"This is just punitive dickishness by these people," Wilson charged. "They're just doing this to be *ssholes, they want their base to be like, 'we're taking those regulations away."
"It is just performative assh*lery," he added.
