CNN asked a panel of female voters if they believed Judge Brett Kavanaugh is telling the truth when he says that the sexual assault allegation against him is false.
The liberal news network clearly didn’t get the response they hoped for.
“A show of hands, how many of you believe Judge Kavanaugh when he says this didn’t happen?” CNN’s Randi Kaye asked the panel.
All five women raised their hands.
“How can we believe the word of a woman from something that happened 36 years ago?” asked panelist Castillo De La Pena. “This guy has an impeccable reputation. Nobody, nobody that has spoken ill will about him. Everyone that speaks about him. This guy’s an altar boy, a scout. Because one woman made an allegation? Sorry, I don’t buy it.”
“In the grand scheme of things, my goodness, there was no intercourse,” added another panelist, Inna Villarino. “There was maybe a touch. Can we — really? 36 years and she’s still stuck on that?”
“I mean, we’re talking about a 15-year-old girl, which I respect,” agreed Gina Sosa. “You know, I’m a woman. I respect. But we’re talking about a 17-year-old boy in high school with testosterone running high. Tell me what boy hasn’t done this in high school. Please, I would like to know.”
“Why didn’t she come out when he was going into the Bush White House?” asked Angie Vazquez. “Why didn’t she come out — he’s been a federal judge for over a decade.”
Democrats have made the allegations against Kavanaugh a central part of their narrative over the past weird… but, if these panelists are representative of actual female voters, it’s clear they could be doing more harm than good for the Democrats’ ability to mobilize female voters.
