Oh, these are just terrible people.

CNN’s Randi Kaye speaks to Republican women in Florida about Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“We’re talking about a 15-year-old girl, which I respect. I’m a woman, I respect. But we’re talking about a 17-year-old boy, in high school, testosterone running high. Tell me what boy hasn’t done this in high school. Please, I would like to know,” one woman said.
“I have no sympathy,” Lourdes Castillo de la Pena said. “Perhaps maybe she had that moment she liked him. And maybe he didn’t pay attention to her afterwards and he went out with another girl, she got bigger, whatever the situation is, they’re kids.”
At one point one of these women says “Tell me what boy has not done this in high school.”
Me, I am a boy that did not hold down a fifteen-year-old girl, with my hand over her mouth, and try to rape her.
I was no saint, but for fuck’s sake, this is attempted rape we are talking about here.
It was later revealed that these women were actually GOP operatives who had practiced what they were going to say during the interview, but I don’t know if that makes it somewhat better or worse.
