I seriously laughed for 5 minutes after I read next news story.
Kirsten Gillibrand is a Democrat who serves as the Junior Senator from New York state (but you probably knew that). In a recent Tweet, she decided to weigh in on the Kavanaugh sexual misconduct allegations and give her hot take (and boy are we glad she did).
Get ready for this... It's a noodle-scratcher.
Yesterday on Twitter, Kirsten said...
"Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her."
Silencing her? You think she's being silenced by being allowed to speak?
To quote Wayne Campbell, "Exsqueeze me? Baking powder?"
No, Kirsten, allowing someone to speak is not silencing them. That's literally the opposite of silencing someone.
Can you hear yourself? Are you really this self-unaware?
Dear God, please help Kirsten Gillibrand. One can only assume she's secretly suffering from some sort of brain injury, because there's no way an elected offical can be this stupid.
I know, I know, the Dems want an FBI investigation, but that went right out the window when Kavanaugh's accuser went to Dianne Feinstein and the Washington Post instead of going straight to law enforcement. The possibility of that investigation has now been botched and corrupted before it even took place (and let's not forget how little people in both parties currently trust the FBI after the last election).
I get it, sexual assault victims are often too ashamed to speak publicly about their attack. If Kavanaugh's alleged victim is being sincere, I'm willing to take that into consideration. But Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's accuser, is a highly accomplished doctor who speaks in front of large audiences regularly (because she's a professor). She also happens to be an outspoken Democrat, feminist and critic of Trump. If she wants to nullify Kavanaugh's nomination, she needs to speak before the Senate Judiciary Committee. When you take her entire character into consideration (not to mention her decision to go to Dianne Feinstein and the liberal media before she contacted the proper authorities) this entire controversy starts to stink worst than yesterday's sushi.
