White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointed to hypocrisy in the Democratic Party’s concern over alleged sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, in a Tuesday morning interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Sanders was pressed on whether President Donald Trump had already made up his mind on whether Kavanaugh’s accusers were lying and whether it demonstrates a pattern in his behavior.
“When Roy Moore is accused, when Bill O’Reilly is accused, when Roger Ailes is accused, when Rob Porter is accused, and now when Brett Kavanaugh is accused, the president consistently every single time takes the side of the man,” “GMA” host George Stephanopoulos told Sanders.
“You know, it’s interesting that you say that,” she replied. “It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”
Sanders referenced current misconduct allegations against Keith Ellison by his former girlfriend Karen Monahan. She also pointed to Sen. Cory Booker’s past admission that he groped a girl while he was a young teenager.
Stephanopoulos pointed out that former Sen. Al Franken was hounded from office by his party, but Sanders rebutted “and a number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny.”
Trump has indicated he believes decades old sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh are a smear campaign aired by the Democratic Party to derail his nomination.
“The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!” Trump tweeted late Monday.
