GOP Has Gone Completely Bonkers; Blames Dems’ Mothers For Kavanaugh Opposition (VIDEO)

Since Donald Trump has assumed office, the news cycles are a lot like Lucille Ball in the chocolate factory. It’s nearly impossible to keep up, but one story is so ludicrous on its face that it needs a moment just to savor. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) blamed his colleagues’ distaste for putting another possible sex offender on the court on not being breastfed.

In an interview with Fox News, Kennedy said:

“What I’m hearing from the voters in Louisiana is that enough is enough. They don’t believe that anybody is in good faith right now in the United States Senate.

Stand up in front of god and country and you either believe that there is no due process left in America or you don’t. I happen to believe there is. Now, I’m not saying that this is any country for creepy old men. It is not. Sexual harassment is wrong. And it goes on a lot. And the people who do it should be punished.

But this is also no country at all without due process. And both the accuser and the accused are entitled to respect and fairness and due process and they are entitled to defend themselves.

And that’s what Chuck Grassley and the Judiciary Committee have tried to do — it is not what some of my colleagues have tried to do. I told [Fox News host Tucker] Carlson last night and I know it was harsh but I mean it. Some of my colleagues on the democratic side are in good faith,” Kennedy said.

Some, I’m convinced — I could be convinced and rapidly being convinced don’t have a soul. How did I put it, their mothers didn’t breastfeed them. They went to raw meat. Right to raw meat. They don’t care who gets destroyed, Dr. Ford, her confidentiality, her family, they don’t care if Brett Kavanaugh gets destroyed, his reputation. Their whole mantra is just win, baby, do whatever it takes.”

Here’s the video:

Okay, let’s ignore the celestial-sized projection from the party that was so hell-bent on winning that they sat on Merrick Garland’s Supreme Court nomination for the better part of a year, until the clock ran out. Kennedy, appallingly, chose to double down on blaming women for sexual assault and the reactions to sexual assault.

He could have chosen different words, even in his bizarre and misplaced attacks on Senators’ childhoods. Perhaps he could have blamed absentee or overbearing fathers. No, he chooses instead to blame mothers, just as Republicans blame women for sexual assault, and for the “damage” the allegations do to the accused.

Any woman who still believes the Republican Party has her back should listen carefully to the GOP’s words. They aren’t merely misogynistic, they have deep-seated rage against women — all women, and if you think you are the exception, I have a Trump University degree to sell you.
