After The New York Times, which has notoriously run President Trump and his supporters through the gutter ever since Trump announced his bid for presidency, issued a “correction” on their article regarding new sexual assault allegations against Justice Kavanaugh, President Trump took to Twitter to call it like he sees it.
He’s been there, done that, and in President Trump’s opinion, Fake News is after Kavanaugh.
“They are looking to destroy, and influence his opinions – but played the game badly. They should be sued!” alleges President Trump.
Here’s what President Trump had to say about the Lamestream Media’s assault on Brett Kavanaugh in these tweets:
Us Americans who support President Trump in his goal to make America the best it has been in decades have some news for Fake News, though: we're not buying it!
Conservative watchdog Tom Fitton made a great point:
Other "deplorables" seem to agree with President Trump on Twitter:
Politico has some background to Trump's tweets:
President Donald Trump on Monday seized upon an editors’ note The New York Times appended to a weekend report that detailed a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, again accusing the news media of acting as a “partner” to the Democratic Party.
“‘The New York Times walks back report on Kavanaugh assault claim.’ @foxandfriends,” Trump tweeted, parroting coverage of the incident by his favorite morning cable news program.
“The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh - Assaulted by lies and Fake News!” he continued. “This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems.”
The Times on Saturday published an essay, adapted from a forthcoming book on Kavanaugh, written by two of the newspaper’s reporters, which reveals a previously unreported episode of alleged sexual impropriety by the Kavanaugh when he was a student at Yale University in the 1980s.
Max Stier, one of Kavanaugh’s classmates, allegedly saw him “with his pants down” at an alcohol-fueled dormitory party, “where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student,” The Times reported.
Stier, who is now president and CEO of the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service in Washington, reportedly told U.S. senators and FBI officials about the incident, which the FBI did not investigate, The Times said.
The revelation prompted alarm among national Democrats and calls from several of the party’s presidential candidates to launch impeachment proceedings against Kavanaugh, who was narrowly confirmed to the high court in October 2018 despite testimony by Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually attacked her at a gathering when the two were in high school.
Kavanaugh also previously faced an accusation from Deborah Ramirez, the main subject of the Times essay, who claimed he “thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent” during a drunken party when they were students at Yale.
But the most recent allegation by Stier came under heightened scrutiny on Sunday when The Times appended a note to its essay clarifying that the female student he referenced declined to be interviewed, and her friends say she does not recall the incident.
The Hill added:
The latest allegation against Kavanaugh came from nonprofit owner Max Stier and had not previously been made public. It was reported to the FBI during Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation process last year but was not investigated.
Kavanaugh was ultimately confirmed by a 50-48 margin in the Senate after multiple sexual misconduct allegations were made against him.
Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all previous allegations against him, and he declined to answer questions about the new allegations to the Times on Saturday.
Several prominent Democrats, including some 2020 presidential candidates, have called for Kavanaugh's impeachment from the Supreme Court in light of the new allegation.
Trump rushed to Kavanaugh's defense over the weekend, before the correction was issued, tweeting Sunday that “Radical left Democrats” and the "LameStream Media" want to scare Kavanaugh into "turning Liberal."
"Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment," he tweeted. "He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY. Such lies about him."
