Laura Ingraham investigated how the protests against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh are being coordinated by well-funded liberal activist groups.
Kavanaugh, President Trump’s pick for the high court, faces allegations of sexual assault dating back to high school by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. He is also accused of exposing himself at a freshman year dorm party to his Yale University classmate Deborah Ramirez. Kavanaugh has emphatically denied the allegations.
On her program, Ingraham noted that the Women’s March has taken the lead in organizing opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“We are organizing an impactful, non-arrest, direct action to make sure that the Senate knows that #WeBelieveChristine and demand that they #CancelKavanaugh and vote no on his confirmation,” the group said.
Ingraham pointed out that the Women’s March counts Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council as their premier partners, and both groups — which have actively opposed Kavanaugh since his nomination was announced — are associated with far-left billionaire donor George Soros.
“According to an extensive study by the Media Research Center, 100 of the 544 Women’s March partners have received a total of … $246,637,217 from Soros at last count,” Ingraham said, noting that Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council are among those partners.
Former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said he’s not at all surprised to see Soros linked to the groups behind anti-Kavanaugh protests.
“He’s connected throughout all of the left-wing activities in this country and around the world,” Bossie said.
He added that he would like to see more “consistency” from the Kavanaugh protesters, who have largely been silent on the allegations facing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and others on the left.
Jeffrey Lord, contributing editor for The American Spectator, said there was a similar backlash when former President George W. Bush nominated Judge D. Brooks Smith to serve on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in 2001.
He said Democratic senators challenged Smith’s nomination, but it was actually liberal interest groups behind the scenes that were “pulling the strings,” including one group funded by Soros.
Ingraham said Soros and his Open Society Foundation can spend money however they want under the law, and it’s on Republicans to get their own billionaire donors and activist groups to push back.
“If they want to give money to Planned Parenthood, want to give money to National Resource Defense Council, if they want to give money to the Women’s March, he can do it,” Ingraham said. “We’re the Republicans. The Republicans have to have their own groups like this.”
Last week, ABC late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage and suggested that his “compromise” to the battle of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination is to chop off the judge’s “pesky penis,” should he be confirmed.
Kimmel launched into the Kavanaugh rancor midway through his monologue, noting a New Yorker article published over the weekend in which Deborah Ramirez alleged that as a drunken Yale University freshman, Brett Kavanaugh “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.” Ramirez claimed she had “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged encounter.
Ramirez’s college best friend also told the paper she “never heard of” the incident in question.
Jimmy Kimmel cut to a clip of Judge Kavanaugh and his wife’s Fox News interview on Monday, in which the Supreme Court nominee called allegations from Christine Blasey Ford false and explained that he was a virgin in high school and college.
“Thank you for admitting that,” Kimmel said in response to the Kavanaugh clip. “He was a virgin until many years after. So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he’ll be The Bachelor.”
Kavanaugh has reportedly produced calendars from 1982, which purportedly prove he was out of town during the time in which Ford says he attempted to grope her at a house party.
“What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements?” Kimmel asked. “No wonder he was a virgin.”
Kimmel concluded his Kavanaugh monologue with a gruesome suggestion.
“Hear me out on this,” Kimmel began “So Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, OK? Well, in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone.”
