Morning Joe says that the MM isn’t fair to those questioning Ford. Really? Go ahead and ask. What part of her story has holes?
1-She told the story over the years to friends and shrinks.
2-She didn’t report to police like hundreds of thousands of other victims of sexual assault.
3-She was a 15 yr old girl, you dumbass
4-The four “witnesses” that wouldn’t corroborate included the assailants, Mark Judge and Kavanaugh, and two others downstairs at a summer afternoon party 36 years ago. There was loud music. How would they know what happened upstairs?
5-The one girl who was downstairs believes Ford.
6-Ford doesn’t remember the date and location of the party.
• I can’t tell you the date when my father died, but he’s still fucking dead. Ford explained the science of the brain to the redneck republicans who don’t believe in evolution or climate-change, so that’s not gonna work. The voluminous literature surrounding our memories of traumatic events however show we remember the event, but not always the details surrounding them.
7-The calendar’s significance relies on the idea that summer parties as teens were only on weekends. This wasn’t a “party” as much as a get-together of friends and they occurred all the time, even after a weight lifting workout with PJ.
8-FORD has NO contradictions in her testimony. NONE. Kavanaugh has dozens of lies.
So Morning Joe? SFTU. We in the Mainstream Media are principled and not sucking up to purple viewers in a desperate attempt to hold onto a pathetic exercise in self-aggrandizing.
