Donald Trump’s presidency has been filled with so much misogyny that it’s hard to believe that any woman would want to work for him — especially considering the president’s latest attacks on the women who have accused his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexually assaulting them.
Last night, Trump mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to come forward and accuse Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her. While that is certainly disgusting in itself, what adds another layer of wretchedness is that today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is defending those comments.
At today’s White House briefing, Sanders was asked by Fox News correspondent John Roberts if Trump had done Kavanaugh a favor by mocking Ford. Sanders, who must be well aware that Trump never tells the truth about anything, said the president was stating “facts.” She said:
The president was stating facts. He was stating facts that were given during Dr. Ford’s testimony and the Senate has to make a decision based on those facts and whether or not they see Judge Kavanaugh to be qualified to hold the position on the Supreme Court.”
Then, she started to lose it. She actually started to get angry and unravel, which is something she probably picked up from her boss. Sanders continued her rant:
Every single word Judge Kavanaugh has said has been picked apart, every single word! Second by second of his testimony has been picked apart. Yet, if anybody says anything about the accusations that have been thrown against him, that is totally off-limits and outrageous.
This entire process has been a disgrace and the only reason that it has been that way is that Senate Democrats circumvented the entire system and frankly they have undermined our entire judicial branch by the way that they have acted.”
What is a disgrace, is the fact that the GOP is full of a bunch of rape apologists and we have an actual rapist in the White House who employs women that have so much internalized misogyny that they are defending men like Kavanaugh. You can watch this disgusting meltdown from Sanders below:
