ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, a former spokesperson for Bill Clinton, had the audacity to tell White House press secretary Sarah Sanders that President Donald Trump always sides with men when it comes to sexual misconduct claims.
One to give as good as she gets, Sanders fired back to throw Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Keith Ellison in Stephanopoulos’ face — Booker admitted to groping a young girl as a teen and Ellison, deputy chair of the DNC, has been accused of being physically abusive by two women.
“When Roy Moore is accused, when Bill O’Reilly is accused, when Roger Ailes is accused, when Rob Porter is accused, and now when Brett Kavanaugh is accused, the president consistently every single time takes the side of the man,” Stephanopoulos said.
With Kavanaugh being ambushed by Senate Democrats with 11th hour accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior, President Trump took to social media to comment on the miscarriage of justice.
“The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!” he tweeted.

“You know, it’s interesting that you say that,” Sanders told Stephanopoulos. “It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”
Stephanopoulos countered by pointing to Al Franken, who resigned form the Senate after a number of women came forward to say he groped them.
He then reiterated his point that Trump always sides with the man over a female accuser.
“That’s not true,” Sanders said. “In this case, the president knows Brett Kavanaugh, he’s heard his story. There hasn’t been a shred of evidence to corroborate the other individual stories, and there has been a lot of individuals that have come forward and talked about the Brett Kavanaugh that they know and they’re confident these things didn’t happen.”
As for the claim leveled Stephanopoulos made, conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that the GMA anchor was “flat wrong.”
“It is absolutely amazing that Stephanopoulos has the gall to say it seems President Trump is always siding with the men when it comes to accusations of sexual impropriety and sexual assault given his work in the Clinton administration,” Barron said.
“Maybe ABC should have found someone with a little more credibility around this issue to ask these questions,” he continued. “Factually, Stephanopoulos is also flat wrong. President Trump has been a high-profile defender of women like Juanita Broaddrick who were victimized by President Clinton and demonized by the main stream media.”
