Back in 2018, Christine Blasey Ford's alleged assualt at the hands of a drunken Brett Kavanaugh might have been "indelible in the hippocampus," but oddly, her social media footprint appeared to be lost to the ravages of time. In fact, as far as the mainstream liberal media was concerned, the under-caffeinated Blasey Ford had no digital footprint at all.
Well, it turns out wacky Christine Blasey Ford had quite an extensive social media footprint after all! But get this: ole' girl strangely chose to scrub her digital tracks from existence prior to going public with her accusations of sexual assault, and thanks to a new book, we now know exactly why it was done.
Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway and her co-author, Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network, claim in “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court” that this social media history scrubbing had been done to cover up Blasey Ford's far-left politics and her expressed "antipathy" toward President Donald Trump, who tapped Kavanaugh for the position on the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to the Washington Examiner, the book reveals how Blasey Ford was portrayed by the media as “politically moderate,” even though “her acquaintances reported Ford’s profile on social media ‘had been notable for its extreme antipathy to President Trump.’”
“Additionally, her political views 'ran decidedly to the left and were at variance with most of her family’s,' and Ford's friends on Facebook said she 'regularly expressed hostility' toward the Trump administration, they said,” the Examiner noted, adding that Blasey Ford’s social media “was ‘completely scrubbed’ about the time Kavanaugh was tapped for the Supreme Court in early July 2018.”
Hemingway and Severino also claim in the book that President Donald Trump withheld “dirt” on the accuser out of fear of being accused of so-called “victim shaming.”
"They interviewed Trump, top White House officials and several Supreme Court justices, among many others," reported Fox News’ Howard Kurtz. "The book describes a central conundrum for the judge and his advocates, which is that the team 'understood that any criticism of Ford would be treated as a smear' and depicted as 'victim shaming.'"
"Although some of those who knew Ford shared details about her behavior in high school and college that were 'dramatically at odds with her presentation in the media,' the book says, the Kavanaugh team decided to focus on his record and the damage to his reputation," Kurtz added.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, Blasey Ford allegedly went by her maiden name before the accusation hit. "Some suggested that she was following sophisticated public relations advice to emphasize her relationship with her husband," the book says.
