The View Fawns for Blasé Kavanaugh Accuser Who Collaborated With Dems

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who rose out of obscurity in a bid to smear and ruin the life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, was out with a new book (surprise, surprise). Her book tour took her to the set of ABC’s The View on Tuesday, where she was treated to gooey praise and an uncritical look at her baseless accusations. Ford even admitted that she “collaborate[d]” with Democratic senators to sink his nomination, but the cast lamented she couldn’t do it from a position of anonymity.

“Well, the book is fantastic and I know it will help people and I, like Whoopi, I applaud you on your courage and your bravery. That was a very brave thing that you did,” staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host, Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) gushed.

In boasting about what Blasey Ford did, Hostin didn’t want to “rehash the details,” likely because her story had no corroborating evidence and shifted to suit her convenience. Hostin tried to claim Blasey Ford brought her accusations to the FBI for an investigation, but Blasey Ford admitted she was “trying to collaborate” with Senate Democrats:

HOSTIN: But you also write in the book that you didn’t think — you thought you could maybe just go to the FBI or go to someone. You didn’t think you would ever be called in front of Congress.

BLASEY FORD: Right, I never thought I would have that day on television. I thought I would share the information with the senators and they would do with it what they felt was necessary. So, I thought I was being helpful, I was trying to collaborate with them, and it was a three-month process of working up to that day on TV.

Of course, there was sno mention of Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) sitting on Blasey Ford’s allegations until the 11th hour before Kavanaugh was get to be confirmed.

Faux-conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin was as useless as ever; at no point did she point out the inconsistencies in Blasey Ford’s tall tale. Instead, she wanted to talk about the “most fascinating” part of her book: Blasey Ford’s naiveté and idealism about coming forward. According to Farah Griffin’s summary, Blasey Ford wanted “to stay anonymous and the story would blow over in 24 hours, and that Trump may even nominate someone else to avoid the embarrassment – which he didn’t.”

Farah Griffin and Blasey Ford lamented about having to go before the Judiciary Committee and share her accusations in a place they could be scrutinized (Click “expand”):

FARAH GRIFFIN: And you didn’t find out until you were walking into the hearing that it would be televised. What was that moment like for you?

(…)

FARAH GRIFFIN: No, just what was the mindset when you realized it was going to be televised.

BLASEY FORD: So, I was very adamant that I didn’t want a camera cause I’m a little afraid of the camera. And they said, well, we need to have one camera so that all the senators will be able to see you and they were telling me that when I was walking down the hallway and it was too late to worry about it at that point. So, they said it would be on C-SPAN and I was just telling myself, “Okay, nobody is going to swatch C-SPAN. My friends are all at work. None of my friends are going to see C-SPAN at work, fine.” And then they said, well, something about people have the rights to pick up C-SPAN if they would like to and clearly they did.

Sorry, Christine and the rest of The View. We know you’d like it to be a kangaroo court, but that’s not how the justice system works in America. You can’t just destroy someone’s life with baseless accusations without showing yourself. Defendants have the right to face their accuser.

Pretend-centrist Sara Haines called Blasey Ford “a highly credible witness” and decried that “even today some people remain skeptical of your story.”

Co-host Joy Behar asserted that what Blasey Ford did was “speaking truth to power.” And despite the fact their guest was making big bucks from the book she was there to hawk and speaking fees, Behar suggested that smearing Kavanaugh “came at a tremendous cost to you.”

“You say that there was a smear campaign against you, that you experienced death threats, and they basically made your life miserable and had you to go into hiding,” she declared, ignoring the fact that a Democrat assassin showed up at Kavanaugh’s house to kill him and his family. “So, how do you make sense of the fact that you were forced into hiding, people were threatening your life and your family’s lives while he is elevated to the nation’s highest bench making incredibly consequential decisions about lives, our lives, for example, and yours, particularly women’s rights?”

Behar also suggested that Kavanaugh’s anger during the hearing didn’t have anything to do with the fact he was falsely accused, but rather because Ford “called him out.” “He was so angry with you for calling him out and ruining his pristine reputation,” she chided in a mocking tone.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Well, the book is fantastic and I know it will help people and I, like Whoopi, I applaud you on your courage and your bravery. That was a very brave thing that you did.

CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD: Thank you.

HOSTIN: So, let’s remind everyone. You’ve accused now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting you at a high school party in the 1980s saying you were afraid he might accidentally kill you. Now, we’re not going to rehash the details, okay, cause of the alleged attack but you have largely stayed silent about it for decades. Tell us about the moment you realized, “Oh, my goodness, he is going to be on the Supreme Court, I need to come forward with my story.”

BLASEY FORD: So, I realized that as soon as Justice Kennedy retired that it was a possibility and I started to be concerned about it when I saw his name on — in the news on the short list and I thought it was imperative that I shared — share the data.

HOSTIN: But you also write in the book that you didn’t think — you thought you could maybe just go to the FBI or go to someone. You didn’t think you would ever be called in front of Congress.

BLASEY FORD: Right, I never thought I would have that day on television. I thought I would share the information with the senators and they would do with it what they felt was necessary. So, I thought I was being helpful, I was trying to collaborate with them, and it was a three-month process of working up to that day on TV.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: So, that’s what was most fascinating to me in the book, you said you were idealistic about the process and you thought you’d be able to stay anonymous and the story would blow over in 24 hours, and that Trump may even nominate someone else to avoid the embarrassment – which he didn’t. And you didn’t find out until you were walking into the hearing that it would be televised. What was that moment like for you?

BLASEY FORD: Okay, well, first of all, being idealistic. Yes, I was definitely — people called me naive and I was very idealistic growing up in Washington, D.C. and revering all those institutions and thinking, that’s the place we send the very best of people. So, that idealism served me because if I had been cynical or concerned I don’t think I would have never made it to —

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Yeah. Yeah.

BLASEY FORD: I never would have left the beach in Santa Cruz and left to see my congressperson. But the second part of your question I haven’t answered, I’m sorry, I forgot.

FARAH GRIFFIN: No, just what was the mindset when you realized it was going to be televised.

BLASEY FORD: So, I was very adamant that I didn’t want a camera cause I’m a little afraid of the camera. And they said, well, we need to have one camera so that all the senators will be able to see you and they were telling me that when I was walking down the hallway and it was too late to worry about it at that point. So, they said it would be on C-SPAN and I was just telling myself, “Okay, nobody is going to swatch C-SPAN. My friends are all at work. None of my friends are going to see C-SPAN at work, fine.” And then they said, well, something about people have the rights to pick up C-SPAN if they would like to and clearly they did.

JOY BEHAR: Again, thank you for what you did. I think speaking truth to power has an enormous cost as we all know, particularly with men in power at that level, which is a very high level. So, this all came at a tremendous cost to you. You say that there was a smear campaign against you, that you experienced death threats, and they basically made your life miserable and had you to go into hiding.

So, speak about that a little bit without upsetting yourself, though, because it’s upsetting to think that people are out to get you for speaking the truth.

11:32:15 a.m. Eastern

SARA HAINES: Well, you’ve been called a highly credible witness and you have a Ph.D. in psychology, you’re a professor, you teach at Palo Alto and Stanford universities, but even today some people remain skeptical of your story. And you write that during the hearing, Senator Lindsey Graham wouldn’t even make eye contact with you.

(…)

11:40:52 a.m. Eastern

BEHAR: Yeah, so Brett Kavanaugh, he has continued to deny that he ever assaulted you. But you say, this is interesting, you say that the anger on his face during the hearings is imprinted on you forever. He was so angry with you for calling him out and ruining his pristine reputation [mocking tone].

So, how do you make sense of the fact that you were forced into hiding, people were threatening your life and your family’s lives while he is elevated to the nation’s highest bench making incredibly consequential decisions about lives, our lives, for example, and yours, particularly women’s rights?
