Hours later, the president expressed his admiration for disgraced Fox News CEO Roger Ailes
President Donald Trump on Monday advised Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to sue women who have accused him of sexual assault, a move which would trigger an investigation and public review of the evidence against him.
Amid the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Trump offered the advice in response to a tweet from the House Judiciary Committee Republicans urging Americans to “remember what they did to Brett Kavanaugh. We don’t owe the Democrats anything.”
“He should sue the women, and all of those who illegally worked with them, for false and disgusting accusations!!!” Trump tweeted, alleging a crime without providing specific evidence.
Two hours after dragging the Kavanaugh accusations back into the limelight, Trump professed his admiration for former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who resigned from the network in disgrace after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment and sustaining a toxic work culture at the right-leaning network for decades.
