Tomi Lahren Slammed Reggie Bush After He Criticized Her Brett Kavanaugh Comments

The right-wing political commentator Tomi Lahren hit out at the retired NFL player Reggie Bush on Thursday, after Bush had criticized her views on the accusations against the Republican Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"Do you think women should always be believed? What happens when someone accuses you?" Lahren, 26, tweeted in response to Bush's comments. "Are you willing to abandon due process and just accept guilt because a woman accused you?"

The argument had begun when Lahren appeared in a segment for Fox News on Wednesday. "How can you say that just because we're women, we should always be believed? You don't think women are capable of lying? You don't think women are capable of scheming?" Lahren, 26, said. "You think we should just take women's word as gospel? That's infuriating to me as a woman. I don't just look at other women and say, 'I'm just going to believe you because we have the same biological making.' I think that's wrong."

Bush responded on Twitter.

"LOOK HOW THEY STAND UP FOR THEIRS! This is so disgusting and sickening to my stomach! On national tv! This is pure evil nothing more nothing less," Bush, 33, tweeted Wednesday. "The devil is alive and working his ass off! Tammy you work for the devil plain and simple!"

Bush's tweet was accompanied by the hashtags "#LowerThanLow" and "#HaveSeveralSeats."

Lahren has been an avid supporter of Kavanaugh, who has been accused by three women—Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick—of engaging in sexual misconduct.

"When these man-hating Leftists say 'all women should be believed,'" Lahren tweeted Wednesday. "What they mean is 'all LIBERAL women should be believed.'" #IStandWithBrett."

Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, stood before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday to give a statement against Kavanaugh. While Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations, she insisted that the Supreme Court nominee "100 percent" physically and sexually assaulted her when she was 15 and he was 17.

"I was pushed on the bed and Brett got on top of me and he began running his hands over my body and grinding into me," Ford said. "I yelled, hoping that someone downstairs might hear me and I tried to get away from him, but his weight was heavy. Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes."

Added Ford, "He had a hard time because he was very inebriated and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit underneath my clothing. I believed he was going to rape me."
