The war is on

Somebody somehow got Trump to refrain from flinging his shit at Christine Blasey Ford for the first few days, but of course it couldn’t last. Of course not.

That’s gorgeous, isn’t it, coming from him? The proud, indeed boastful, grabber of women by the pussy? The guy who has mused aloud about sex with his own daughter? The guy who gave his warm approval when Howard Stern called Ivanka “a piece of ass” on live radio? The guy who walked into the dressing room of the “Miss Universe” pageant so that he could leer at women in their underwear? The guy whom multiple women have accused of various gradations of sexual assault?

The Times explains a few things:

Many women are reluctant to come forward and report sexual assaults to authorities, in part because they fear they will not be believed.

And they fear this not because they’re stupid flighty airheads but because of men like Pig Trump who shout their disbelief from inconspicuous places like the White House. They fear they will not be believed because that is what happens – they are not believed. Pig Trump talks as if “filing charges” meant the perp would instantly be arrested and sentenced and locked up, but that’s not how that works. He should know that better than most, since he hasn’t been arrested and sentenced and locked up.

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, assured an audience of conservative Christians on Friday that Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation would go through.

“Keep the faith. Don’t get rattled by all of this. We’re gonna plow right through it and do our job,” Mr. McConnell said at the Values Voter Summit. “In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court.”

Don’t worry, guys. We’re not gonna let some bitch get in our way.
