Former Fox News host turned NBC host Megyn Kelly went off on women for accusing men of sexual assault by claiming that they need to think twice before coming forward because the justice system favors women.
Kelly said during a discussion about the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that women will have a hard time being believed if men aren’t given the benefit of the doubt.
“If there is a presumption of guilty in all cases, how are we going to get people to listen to us?” she asked.
Conservative pundit Amy Holmes agreed.
“We’ve seen it on college campuses based on anecdotal evidence,” Holmes said. “That’s the racial angle. And on college campuses, disproportionately, young men of color are accused of these crimes and then are put in a situation where they can’t defend themselves.”
“Absolutely,” Kelly replied. “What happened on college campuses is sort of a harbinger of what’s been going on in the country, where we’ve swung the pendulum so far back against men, took away their due process rights. They don’t have the right to cross examine. They don’t have the right to an attorney. They don’t have a right to evidence.”
“They don’t have a right to see emails that a woman sent saying maybe this was consensual,” she added. “They don’t have that right. Or they didn’t under President Obama.”
