Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denied accusations of sexual misconduct in an exclusive interview with Fox News on Monday.
The interview itself was more than a little uncomfortable at times, as Judge Kavanaugh revealed to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum at one point that he was a virgin through high school and college.
“I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone,” Kavanaugh said. “I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter … The girls from the schools I went to, and I, were friends.”
“Through all these years that were in question, you were a virgin?” Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked.
“That’s correct,” Kavanaugh replied, adding that he did not have sex until “many years after” college.
Hoo, boy… This is where we are, America.
The Chicks offered up their take on Kavanaugh’s interview Tuesday:
“When Martha was going through that line of questioning, I didn’t like HER. I basically just hated the media so much more than I’ve ever hated them in that moment.”
“But I don’t blame her for pushing forward once he made that reveal. She wasn’t going to go there and he opened to the door.”
“So this is where we are now? Are we going to do this in every Presidential debate? This is gross; it’s none of my business when he lost his virginity.”
At one point during the interview, Kavanaugh was clearly distressed as he proclaimed his innocence and referenced his children.
“It’s very difficult to have these conversations with your children, which we’ve had to have,” Ashley Kavanaugh said. “But they know Brett and they know the truth and we told them at the very beginning of this process, ‘This will be not fun sometimes. You’re going to hear things. People feel strongly and you need to know that and just remember, you know your dad.’”
“That was when I saw his chin quivering and just completely lost it; I felt so bad for him.”
“His wife looked like she was going to lose it the entire time, and I don’t blame her. Can you imagine the stress that they are under?”
