Laura Ingraham: ‘Everybody Was Afraid’ To Ask Christine Ford Tough Questions Because of #MeToo
On Thursday night, Laura Ingraham weighed in on the hearings of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his first accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
During the panel discussion, Ingraham put the focus on Dr. Ford’s remarks about her 2012 therapists notes, saying she doesn’t remember whether she shared them with The Washington Post or showed them to a reporter.
“It’s understandable to forget things for 36 years ago… but that was interesting,” Ingraham reacted. “It was just seven weeks ago. She couldn’t remember whether she gave notes? I mean, those are her therapist’s notes. I mean, it would seem like you would really remember that.”
She then blasted the Senate Judiciary Committee for their hesitancy towards Ford.
“No one wanted to touch this! Everybody was afraid, I think, because of the #MeToo hashtag,” Ingraham continued. “Everyone’s afraid to ask tough questions. They asked a lot of tough questions of Brett Kavanaugh. Didn’t kind of push that. I was surprised.”
Former US Attorney Joe diGenova said that those notes “should have been produced” and the fact that they weren’t means there’s “something to hide.” He also pointed to the questioning about Ford’s air travel in August despite her cited fear of flying.
Ingraham also took shots at the Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, saying she was “too slow” with her line of questioning.
“I was like, ‘C’mon! C’mon!'” Ingraham exclaimed.
The Fox News host dismissed the entire format of the two-part hearing was “a joke.”
