Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted the bizarre logic of CNN contributor and former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm on his show Monday night. She suggested that the fact that no one could corroborate the allegations of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh was, in fact, all the corroboration anyone should need.
The segment began with Carlson airing the clip of Granholm on CNN’s “State of the Union” from Sunday.
“Kavanaugh, Judge, Smith and her friend, Leland Keyser, have all said they don’t remember anything like this ever happening. And Leland Keyser, who says she believes Ford, said she doesn’t even remember being at a party where Kavanaugh was present,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said in the video.
“Right, and that actually corroborates Ford’s story which is that she was so horrified by this that she kind of snuck out or slunk out of this apartment in a way that no one would know what happened because she was so utterly mortified,” Granholm followed up.
Tucker Carlson commented, “Are you following this at home? See if you can track the reasoning here. When you are corroborating witnesses can’t corroborate your story, the one you say they can corroborate, your story has still been corroborated — maybe even more so so.”
Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two different women in recent weeks. It’s unclear how these allegations will impact whether or not he gets confirmed to the Supreme Court. (RELATED: A Second Woman: Kavanaugh Decries Last Minute Smear As New Accuser Emerges)
