Yesterday I told you how NJ Senator Cory Booker had admitted to sexually assaulting a drunk girl in high school. Today CNN is doing their best to downplay this because that’s what liberal fake news networks do. CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote a piece excusing Booker’s crime while explaining the difference between what he did and what Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of. Spoiler alert: the difference is that Booker is a democrat so whatever he does isn’t a big deal to the liberal media.
Back in 1992, Booker wrote an article for The Stanford University newspaper in which he admitted to grabbing a drunk girl’s breast against her will. The liberal media doesn’t care and neither do the democrats. Last week Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of drunkenly trying to touch her against her will and despite the complete lack of evidence, the liberal media has convicted the SCOTUS nominee and so have the democrats.
Still, that Cory Booker thing is out there and liberals don’t want to look like hypocrites, so Chris Cillizza came to the rescue:
And, yes, it’s true that there are some similarities between the two episodes: Both Booker and Kavanaugh were teenagers, and the incidents — admitted to and alleged, respectively — happened decades before they entered public life in any meaningful way. So why is Kavanaugh being raked over the coals — and watching his nomination to the Supreme Court be jeopardized — while Booker just gets a pass?
As I already told you, the reason is because Booker is a liberal and Kavanaugh is a conservative, but here’s Cillizza’s theory:
First, and most importantly, the reason we know about the groping incident involving Booker is because Booker told us about it. He wrote publicly about it — and used it as a way to explain how he evolved as a person. While that doesn’t absolve him of his behavior — just because you admit something publicly and apologize doesn’t mean you didn’t do it — it does make for a very different situation than faces Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh has never mentioned the alleged episode with Ford publicly before.
So Kavanaugh is guilty because he never mentioned something he didn’t do and never heard about until last week? And Booker is innocent because he admitted to committing a sexual assault? That is some stunning liberal logic right there.
Second, the situations of Kavanaugh and Booker are different. Booker is an elected official who, every six years, stands before voters. If voters believe his groping incident — or any other element of his past or present — is disqualifying, they get to have their say. They can vote him out. That’s not the situation in which Kavanaugh finds himself. He has been nominated to a lifetime appointment on the most powerful court in the country. The public won’t ever get to offer up its judgment on his character…
More liberal logic: Kavanaugh is guilty because he can’t be voted out of office, but Booker is innocent because he can. It’s important to note that Supreme Court Justices can be impeached. If for some crazy reason the accusations against Kavanaugh could be proven to be true and he was charged and convicted of sexual assault, he would be impeached as well.
I know it seemed like Cillizza was going to list a bunch of reasons why the Booker and Kavanaugh cases are different, but that was it. He did leave out one important difference: Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations against him while Booker freely admitting to committing a sexual assault.
Since that is the case it can only be concluded that the left only cares about sexual misconduct when a conservative is accused of it. Not that we already didn’t know that since “Rapey” Bill Clinton’s shocking sexual predation that liberals didn’t give a shit about.
