NBC host Megyn Kelly claimed on Thursday that men don’t have “due process rights” in sexual assault cases because the justice system favors women.
During a discussion on The Today Show about the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Kelly warned women that their assault claims would not be believed unless men are given the benefit of the doubt.
“If there is a presumption of guilty in all cases, how are we going to get people to listen to us?” she asked.
Conservative pundit Amy Holmes agreed.
“We’ve seen it on college campuses based on anecdotal evidence,” Holmes said. “That’s the racial angle. And on college campuses, disproportionately, young men of color are accused of these crimes and then are put in a situation where they can’t defend themselves.”
“Absolutely,” Kelly replied. “What happened on college campuses is sort of a harbinger of what’s been going on in the country, where we’ve swung the pendulum so far back against men, took away their due process rights. They don’t have the right to cross examine. They don’t have the right to an attorney. They don’t have a right to evidence.”
“They don’t have a right to see emails that a woman sent saying maybe this was consensual,” she added. “They don’t have that right. Or they didn’t under President Obama.”
In fact, the Obama administration did put into place rules for colleges to protect the rights of the accuser. Those rules have been rescinded by the Trump administration. However, men charged with sexual assault crimes did not lose their due process rights in a court of law as a result of the Obama-era rules.

Appellate Judge says Mary Trump’s tell-all book can be released
Yesterday, a judge paused Mary Trump's tell-all book on President Donald Trump and his family, but Wednesday evening, a New York appellate judge ruled that Simon & Schuster could move forward with releasing the book.
According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.
"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.
Trump staff had an inquisition for healthcare workers for Tulsa rally — demanding to know if they leaked staff COVID story
President Donald Trump was so incensed that the media learned of his staffers who caught COVID-19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he had a kind of inquisition for healthcare workers to investigate if they linked the story.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that those familiar to his reaction said that outside of the BOK center, Trump campaign staff were being tested before the event. When the information was released, they scrambled, quizzing who leaked the information about the positive cases.
Healthcare workers were "then given a different list of people to test, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events who, like others in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," said the Post.
