Speaking to reporters Monday, President Trump dismissed fresh and existing claims of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying that they are all ‘totally political’.

“He is a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers,” Trump urged as he arrived at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

“Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person and I am with him all the way.” Trump added.

“For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mention it, all of a sudden it happens, in my opinion, it’s totally political. It’s totally political.” Trump said.

Kavanaugh has described the accusations as “a smear, plain and simple,” saying that ““The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so.”

As reported at the weekend, a total of Seventy-five women with long-standing associations with Kavanaugh have defended him, and called the allegations false.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec has said the accusations constitute a “coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man.” Kupec added that the White House “stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.”

The media storm surrounding Kavanaugh is being driven by partisan reporters who, once again, are operating as anti-Trump activists, rather than journalists.

One case in point is MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who posted a tweet Friday that compared the GOP wanting to nominate Brett Kavanaugh to rape.

“So even though Dr Ford is saying please stop, slow down, I’m not comfortable with the way this is going, the GOP is gonna plow through, ignore her telling them to stop and just take what they think is rightfully theirs?” Hayes wrote.
