Nancy Mace And George Stephanopoulos Have Tense Interview

Liberals often claim to respect women and want to protect victims. That is, until they think they can score easy points against their political enemy. 

Republican member of Congress Nancy Mace stood her ground against ABC’s George Stephanopoulos over the weekend when the longtime host and former Clinton aide attempted to shame her as a victim of sexual assault. 

The host brought up Trump’s civil case brought against him by writer E. Jean Carroll, who claimed the former president had sexually assaulted her. Stephanopoulos asked how the South Carolina representative how she could possibly support the former president when she herself was a victim of rape.

To her credit, Mace stood her ground against the line of questioning from the former Democratic hatchet man.

Mace noted that Carroll’s case against Trump was not only decided in a civil court but also emphasized that the writer’s comments, in which she stated she would be going on a shopping spree with her awarded money, made a “mockery out of rape.”

“You’ve endorsed Donald Trump for president. Judges and two separate juries have found him liable for rape and for defaming the victim of that rape. How do you square your support for Donald Trump with the testimony we just saw?” Stephanopoulos questioned.

“I will tell you that I was raped at the age of 16, and any rape victim will tell you I’ve lived for 30 years with an incredible amount of shame. I didn’t come forward because of that judgment and shame that I felt, and it’s a shame that you will never feel, George. I’m not going to sit here on your show and be asked a question meant to shame me about another potential rape victim. I’m not going to do that,” Mace stated.

“It’s actually not about shaming you. It’s a question about Donald Trump,” Stephanopoulos pushed back.

“You are shaming me,” Mace pressed.

Byron York laid out how Stephanopoulos not only tried to victim shame Mace, but also purposely lied to make it appear that the former president has been “found liable for rape” when the exact opposite happened. 

The Republican moderate wrote, “The dishonesty of Stephanopoulos’ interview is striking. He says 10 times that Trump was found ‘liable for rape’ in the E Jean Carroll case. He says that the jury found Trump ‘liable for rape.’ In fact, the jury specifically found Trump *not* liable for rape. It found him liable for ‘sexual abuse.’ The judge later tried to spin the decision, citing laws that did not apply, to argue that the jury ‘implicitly’ found Trump liable for rape. 

In the absence of an actual jury finding of rape, the judge guessed that the jury’s decision ‘necessarily implies’ rape. Stephanopoulos, in spite of the jury’s written finding, on 10 occasions said Trump had been found legally liable for rape. Why not just be accurate and say Trump was found liable for sexual abuse? Does anyone think that sounds *good*? Did ABC think it would be letting Trump off easy by accurately citing the jury’s verdict? I’ve written several times that I think the case should never have been brought. But it is a fact that Trump was found liable for sexual abuse. It’s also a fact that he was not found liable for rape.”

During the Bill Clinton campaign in 1992, George Stephanopoulos served as the Communications Director for Bill Clinton’s presidential bid. He played a crucial role in shaping and delivering the campaign’s messages. His efforts contributed to the success of Clinton’s candidacy, and after the election, he continued to be a key figure in the Clinton administration.

In 2012, he received criticism for orchestrating the sabotage of Mitt Romney’s campaign during by pretending the Republican frontrunner wanted to ban birth control. The line of questioning became vital to the Obama campaign’s effort to claim that Mitt Romney wanted to perpetrate a “war on women.”
