Of Course The White House Wants Deborah Ramirez To Testify. They Want To Destroy Her.
Tuesday, after Donald Trump embarrassed himself in front of the whole entire world by attempting to make words at the United Nations, reporters asked him a few questions. Because nobody is actually interested in what he has to say about foreign policy or anything, the subject quickly moved to all Trump's current fuckups at home, including all the rapey accusations against Perfect Angel Saint Brett of Kavanaugh, whose calendars record NO INSTANCES of him grabbing them by the pussy or taking them furniture shopping.
In so doing, Trump kiiiiinda gave up the game when he spoke of Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct:
I think it's horrible what the Democrats have done. It's a con-game they're playing, they're con, they're con artists … you know, they don't believe it themselves, OK?
Lord Jesus, if the man is speaking, he's projecting.
Now, about Ramirez:
She said, well it might not be him? And there were GAPS? And she said she was totally INEBRIATED? And she was ALL MESSED UP? And she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him? Oh gee let's not make him a Supreme Court judge …
That's right, President PussBurglar, dumb ladies can't possibly remember, especially if they were drunk, and even if they do remember, Brett Kavanaugh is the real victim here, right? Just like Trump thinks he's the real victim of all his accusers, yeah?
To be clear, this is what the Trump White House and the GOP think about Deborah Ramirez. Despite how Ramirez's story was reported by Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow, two of the absolute greats, they have seen how the media -- and the insanely jealous New York Times, which would really like a win, considering how Michael Schmidt has been fucking around DC like an idiot endangering the Robert Mueller investigation based on his own bad reporting -- have seized on certain details in the Mayer/Farrow piece to discredit Ramirez entirely.
It's true that she did take some time to make sure she remembered exactly what happened.
It's true that she was drunk.
And golly, nobody has come forward to say they held Brett Kavanaugh's penis when he was shoving it in Ramirez's face while they were at Yale, therefore Q.E.D., bitches be lyin', and they will VANQUISH HER. This is why the White House is reportedly "open to the idea" of Ramirez testifying on Thursday. They figure if things go badly with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford -- and they will if the hearing goes on, which is why the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee tried so hard to bluff their way out of scheduling a hearing with her -- they can just use Ramirez to wipe up whatever mess they're in.
It's an old sales tactic, you know. People remember the last thing they hear.
Because the Trump White House is full of idiots, they may be very wrong about how it would go, because all the people bitching and moaning about the New Yorker piece, including the GOP and some dicks in the mainstream media, seem to be consciously overlooking a few pertinent facts, several of which appear in the originally reported piece. (We understand, y'all -- it's a long piece, and reading is hard.)
As Jane Mayer reminded us on "Morning Joe" Monday, one of the story's main sources was a student who remembered the story and the identity of the cock-shover with 100% accuracy:
A classmate of Ramirez's, who declined to be identified because of the partisan battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, said that another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two. The classmate said that he is "one-hundred-per-cent sure" that he was told at the time that Kavanaugh was the student who exposed himself to Ramirez. He independently recalled many of the same details offered by Ramirez, including that a male student had encouraged Kavanaugh as he exposed himself. The classmate, like Ramirez, recalled that the party took place in a common room on the first floor in Entryway B of Lawrance Hall, during their freshman year. "I've known this all along," he said. "It's been on my mind all these years when his name came up. It was a big deal."
That student recalled Brett Kavanaugh being pretty shy for a white guy, but an "aggressive and even belligerent drunk."
Another classmate, Richard Oh, remembered hearing about the incident soon after it happened, because he heard a girl telling the story through tears.
Yet another classmate, Mark Krasberg, said as soon as Kavanaugh was nominated, alllllll the Yale alums started emailing about how he was a shitfaced sexual predator:
In one e-mail that Krasberg received in September, the classmate who recalled hearing about the incident with Ramirez alluded to the allegation and wrote that it "would qualify as a sexual assault," he speculated, "if it's true."
And then there's Kavanaugh's roommate James Roche:
Debbie and I became close friends shortly after we both arrived at Yale," he said. "She stood out as being exceptionally honest and gentle. I cannot imagine her making this up." He said that he never witnessed Kavanaugh engage in any sexual misconduct, but did recall him being "frequently, incoherently drunk." He described Ramirez as a vulnerable outsider. "Is it believable that she was alone with a wolfy group of guys who thought it was funny to sexually torment a girl like Debbie? Yeah, definitely. Is it believable that Kavanaugh was one of them? Yes."
Roche confirmed also too that Brett Kavanaugh, blessed be his name, was an especially belligerent drunk.
Finally, Ramirez told her mom and sister at the time, according to Mayer and Farrow, that something had happened, though she didn't tell them the whole story, because it's none of your fucking business why she didn't tell them the whole story at the time.
So yeah, Ramirez -- who as Jane Mayer has pointed out did not "come forward" per se but was approached by the New Yorker after they started hearing the stories and reporting it out -- took some time to get her head together about what she remembered and whose dick it was in her face. And sure, the New York Times tried to find some people to corroborate the New Yorker's story, and failed. And sure, some people are quoted as saying they don't think it happened. But there are a good number of contemporary witnesses who think it did happen. As Mayer said on "Morning Joe," ain't her fuckin' fault she got the story and the New York Times didn't. (NYT has apologized with its tail between its legs.)
We don't know if Deborah Ramirez wants to testify. We do know through her lawyer that she wants the FBI to investigate, just like all sane people who aren't terrified of what an FBI investigation would reveal.
We also know that there are more accusers coming.
Oh yeah, and Michael Avenatti's on his way.
