On Wednesday, CNN host Jim Acosta, everyone’s favorite obnoxious White House correspondent, sat down and interviewed a former classmate of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
This little encounter didn’t seem to go the way that Acosta and many others on the left were hoping it would, as the guest, Samantha Guerry, basically admitted that she had absolutely no knowledge of any wrongdoing on the part of Kavanaugh.
Acosta theorized that members of the GOP were “complaining” that the Ford accusation was revenge for the refusal of the GOP to confirm Judge Merrick Garland in 2016. He asked, “Do you think she (Ford) would be a part of that if that was going on?”Advertisement - story continues below
Guerry patronized, “I understand that this is highly inconvenient to the Republicans’ agenda right now,” adding that how the matter was handled was not Ford’s decision, but the Democrats’. She pontificated, “Whether it was revealed two months ago or last week, I’m not sure how relevant that is.” She later claimed that Ford would have to appear in a public forum, “in front of thousand of cameras and of people,” which is false; the Judiciary Committee has offered for her to testify privately. Acosta did not correct her.
Finally, Acosta got down to what mattered, asking, “What Dr. Ford is alleging, is this the first time you heard anything like that with respect to Judge Kavanaugh?” This exchange followed:Trending:
Guerry: Absolutely, it’s not the first time I’ve heard anything like that in terms of the community of women I know, and not regarding him but —

Guerry: A lot … You know, one of the things that’s surprising to me as I’ve gotten involved in this in the last couple days is how many women of my class have come forward to me in this last few days and said, “I had similar experiences in high school,” and this hits me very deeply and it’s very —
ACOSTA: Not with Brett Kavanaugh, but with other boys?
GUERRY: Not with Brett Kavanaugh. But with other boys in our community, and we all feel that if we were in her shoes, we’d want to be taken seriously as well.
Okay, look, it’s awful that these women had this experience back in the day, but right now, the main focus here is on the Kavanaugh case. Anyone else guilty of doing something wrong needs to be taken up with local police. It’s not a matter of national concern.
All of this hoopla and the media circus surrounding it have to do with Kavanaugh and whether or not he is guilty of sexual assault. If he is, he deserves to be in prison. Like yesterday.
If it’s not true, the accuser — Ford — needs to recant, confess, and issue an apology for her conduct, facing the penalty for her actions.
It’s really that simple.
