Will Kavanaugh’s Accuser Even Bother To Show Up Thursday?
On The Daily Daily Caller Podcast today, we ask the unanswered question on everyone’s lips: Will Christine Blasey Ford even show up to testify before Congress on Thursday?
It will be the first time her statements will be subject to perjury charges, and through her attorney, she’s allegedly upset that Republicans are bringing in a female lawyer who specializes in sexual assault crimes to ask the questions.
Listen to the show:
Rachel Mitchell from Arizona has been chosen by Republicans to question Ford, denying Democrats the optics they desperately wanted of “11 white men” questioning Ford. The talking points and press releases were all drafted for the media, now Democrats have to rewrite the whole thing.
Liberals immediately spread a lie across social media about Mitchell, saying she worked for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, which she never has. Fact-checking wasn’t an option when a story is so juicy, so off it went from a Huffington Post “reporter” to the “conservative blogger” at the Washington Post, Jennifer Rubin. Thousands of retweets later it was pointed out that is was a lie, but the damage was done, the narrative fed. Like so much involving these allegations against Kavanaugh, what’s true or not doesn’t matter when the storyline is at stake.
We cover all the latest on the Kavanaugh case and how the wheels have come off the second accuser’s story, which has begun to fade from the media.
Then we get into the sentencing of Bill Cosby, more specifically the statement his spokesman made after he was led away in handcuffs to start serving his 3-10 years in prison. The spokesman compared Cosby to Jesus and complained about how the country has historically treated black men. But racists didn’t make Cosby slip women quaaludes.
