You remember Christine Blasey Ford, don’t you?
She was the one who accused now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual harassment, a claim that shook the political world.
It also made Kavanaugh’s confirmation extra difficult, though he staunchly proclaimed his innocence from the outset.
And while many Democrats wanted to believe Ford’s accusation, many others thought Ford was outright lying.
Reportedly, one of those skeptics was First Lady Melania Trump.
This revelation comes in a new book by conservative authors Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, “Justice On Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”
And in this book, the authors claimed that “millions of other women and men” didn’t believe Ford.
Including Mrs. Trump (via the New York Post):
“‘You know that woman is lying, don’t you?’ Melania Trump told President Trump…“
The White House has declined to comment on the First Lady’s quote, so all we have is the testimony of the authors in this case.
However, the credentials of the authors are clear:
Hemingway is a senior editor at The Federalist, and Severino is the chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network.
Therefore, one would hope they’ve done their homework, and this quote is accurate.
And if it is, it means Melania was quick to tell her husband that she didn’t believe Ford, and in turn that Kavanaugh was innocent of the charges.
If true, one wonders if FLOTUS has some inside information on the subject … perhaps she knows more about this situation than anybody assumed.
Or maybe it was just a woman’s intuition. But either way, it’s easy for me to believe that Melania was one of the “millions” of doubters.
Did you think Ford was lying as well? Were you always convinced Kavanaugh was innocent? Let us know!
