On Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, the host and her guests Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino employed rumors, innuendo, and victim-blaming tropes to trash the reputation of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor who came forward last fall to accuse then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when she was 15 years old and he was 17.
Hemingway and Severino are the co-authors of a new book about the Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Justice on Trial, which they discussed in a segment with Laura Ingraham.
“Mollie, you point out in the book that Blasey Ford went to extreme lengths to cover her tracks, or social media tracks before lobbing these false accusations at Kavanaugh,” Ingraham claimed.
“We show that we had this presentation at the time the accusation was made that Blasey Ford was an apolitical person, who by all accounts in the Washington Post was a veritable saint,” Hemingway said. “We talked to people who know her, who are friends with her, who say that their recollection of how she was in high school, how she was even in the months before this all broke loose was very much at odds with what that media presentation was, [she was] a highly political person.”
Hemingway then went on: “Also, these are people who like her but they remembered her — a heavy drinker who was much more aggressive with boys than we were led to believe.” Blasey Ford told Congress that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party where he had been heavily drinking. He has strenuously denied her account.
