Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor famous for accusing then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of trying to rape her at a college party 30-some years ago, is now gracing the cover of TIME Magazine, which has found itself with even less credibility than Ford’s allegations.
In it’s annual list of 100 most influential people, TIME listed Ford among its most notable, alongside President Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. According to the magazine, Ford ranks among the world’s top 100 most influential people thanks to her calling out Kavanaugh for sexual misconduct during his Senate confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court.
But apparently, simply saying someone did something to you three decades ago without providing a shred of proof is “courage” – at least to former prosecutor (who should therefore know the law) and current Sen. Kamala Harris, who wrote Ford’s profile.
"She had a good life and a successful career ― and risked everything to send a warning in a moment of grave consequence,” Harris wrote about Ford for TIME. “Through her courage, she forced the country to reckon with an issue that has too often been ignored and kept in the dark.”
Except that she didn’t.
In fact, all Ford did was help Senate Democrats delay a Supreme Court confirmation by telling an oft-conflicting story about a high-school aged Kavanaugh with no evidence to back up her claims - claims that, upon further investigation, couldn’t be collaborated by a single other person who was supposedly at the party.
But then again, when have facts ever mattered to the left when pushing a narrative?
