Fox News host Chris Wallace said Thursday that two of his daughters revealed in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that they endured previously undisclosed incidents when they were in high school.
Wallace said his daughters brought up their experiences as the family was discussing the allegations against Kavanaugh over email.
“[They] hadn’t told their parents, I don’t know if they told their friends. Certainly had never reported it to police,” Wallace said on Fox News during coverage of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford.
Wallace noted that his daughters described events that “weren’t as serious as the allegations against Kavanaugh.”
“But the point is that there are teenage girls who don’t tell stories to a lot of people, and then it comes up, and I don’t think we can disregard that,” Wallace said. “I don’ think we can disregard Christine Blasey Ford and the seriousness of this. I think that would be a big mistake.”
Gee how enlightening for Chris Wallace.
This kind of reminds me how people do not support gay rights until their son comes out of the closet, and then suddenly their opinion changes completely when they realize how prejudice harms those that they love.
I would be willing to bet that there are a whole lot of conservatives who are just now learning that their wives, sisters, and daughters have also been subjected to sexually inappropriate behaviors that they were never told about it.
Maybe, just maybe, that will change a few minds about this nominee, this party, and the man sitting in the White House.
