Fox News host Sean Hannity is not inclined to believe Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, in part because Ford is fuzzy on some of the details, but mostly because Kavanaugh is a good church-going man.
Hannity lauded Kavanaugh's good deeds during his radio show on Monday.
> “I read very closely the account of Professor Ford detailing these allegations when she was a sophomore in high school and Brett Kavanaugh would have been a junior in high school and she said she didn’t seem to recall exactly when the allegation, or the alleged attack took place and she didn’t remember the actual year, she said she wasn’t sure what year it was when all of this happened.”
But then there is Kavanaugh, who 36 years later is a good and moral man in Hannity’s book, and so it is inconceivable to the Fox host that he could be guilty of such behavior.
> “[E]verything else you see about Judge Kavanaugh’s life, in his church, in his community, this is a guy that spends a lot of time feeding the homeless, I mean he actually is the real deal in terms of helping people in his life now and throughout his profession and you’ve got 65 women who were contemporaries during his high school years that they've all come out and said that he was a great guy, a person of great character and great integrity that’s at the time.”
In Hannity’s mind, the appearance of godliness is enough to exempt Kavanaugh from past immoral behavior.
