Christine Blasey Ford is back in the news, this time via Sports Illustrated. Why is a sports magazine highlighting Dr. Ford, and what can this tell us about the Left? Michael Knowles explained that on Thursday's episode of "The Michael Knowles Show."

"Sports Illustrated every year awards its 'Inspiration of the Year' award," Knowles explained. "This year it’s giving it to Rachael Denhollander, who was the first woman to publicly accuse the U.S. Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar, of sexually abusing her. Larry Nassar abused scores of other women. So, she’s winning the award – but who is Sports Illustrated picking to give this award out? None other than Christine Blasey Ford."

Knowles then played a clip of Dr. Ford discussing Denhollander and her brave decision in "stepping forward" to call out Nassar’s abuse.

Knowles said, "Here's me imitating Christine Blasey Ford: 'I’m a totally normal person who doesn’t have any designs on being famous or making money. I’m just a normal, regular person. Without a crazy, creepy voice. Who doesn’t constantly seek the cameras and the spotlight.'"

He continued: "What a terrifying piece of video. It’s terrifying, at least in a comedic way. This is terrifying in a way that mocks the obliviousness of this woman. I hope the good thing that comes out of Sports Illustrated picking Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to present this award – I hope it dispels the ridiculous fiction that this is just a woman who wants to tell her story, and she doesn’t want fame, she doesn’t want money, she doesn’t want adulation – B.S., totally B.S. – I don’t know if she’s a lunatic or a liar, but she’s one of those two things."

Knowles noted the contradictions in Dr. Ford’s testimony of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and how the Left turned her into a celebrity.

"She also gained $850,000 in GoFundMe campaigns. So I don’t know," he pointed out.

"Christine Ford, either a fraud, or a liar, or a lunatic or some combination of the three – demonstrably so," he continued. "Contradicted herself, contradicted by the people she said could corroborate it. She is now given the spotlight over this girl, Rachael Denhollander, who actually is an inspiration, who actually did go out and blow the whistle on this guy Larry Nassar and get him thrown in the clink. She is the inspiration."

He added, "The Left completely flips it, and now we’ve got this fraud who makes light of people who have actually suffered sexual abuse because she made up some ridiculous story from 35 or 36 or 37 years ago – we don’t know because she doesn’t know! Where a guy allegedly pushed her onto a bed. It totally takes away and detracts from people who have actually suffered sexual abuse, like the gymnasts at the hands of Larry Nassar. It only gets worse from there with the Left."

Sports Illustrated every year awards it’s “Inspiration of the Year” award. This year it’s giving it to Rachael Denhollander, who was the first woman to publicly accuse the U.S. Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar, of sexually abusing her. Larry Nassar abused scores of other women. So, she’s winning the award – but who is Sports Illustrated picking to give this award out? None other than Christine Blasey Ford:

Christine Blasey Ford: “I’m honored to speak with you from afar about a woman I admire so much. A woman who suffered abuse as a vulnerable teenage athlete. Who found the courage to talk publicly, to stop the abuse of others. Her courage inspired other survivors to end their silence, and we all know the results. Rachael Denhollander, I am in awe of you, and I will always be inspired by you. In stepping forward, you took a huge risk, and you galvanized future generations to come forward, even when the odds are seemingly stacked against them. The lasting lesson is that we all have the power to create real change, and we cannot allow ourselves to be defined by the acts of others. Ladies and gentleman, please welcome this year’s Sports Illustrated Inspiration of the year, Rachael Denhollander.”

Here's me imitating Christine Blasey Ford: “I’m a totally normal person who doesn’t have any designs on being famous or making money. I’m just a normal, regular person. Without a crazy, creepy voice. Who doesn’t constantly seek the cameras and the spotlight.”

What a terrifying piece of video. It’s terrifying, at least in a comedic way. This is terrifying in a way that mocks the obliviousness of this woman. I hope the good thing that comes out of Sports Illustrated picking Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to present this award – I hope it dispels the ridiculous fiction that this is just a woman who wants to tell her story, and she doesn’t want fame, she doesn’t want money, she doesn’t want adulation – B.S., totally B.S. – I don’t know if she’s a lunatic or a liar, but she’s one of those two things.

We know that she contradicted her story countless times. First there were 4 people in the room, now there were two people in the room. Everybody she named as being there, including her lifelong friend, said that it didn’t happen. Ford kept changing her story to make it more convenient. The line that everybody said to defend her was “what does Christine Ford have to gain from this? What on earth could she gain?” I don’t know – a lot of fame, a ton of celebrity, she is virtually a celebrity now. It’s not that she did anything to deserve it other than going and testifying against a good man. She’s also gained a number of book deal offers, it’s unclear who she’s gonna go with, but a lot of offers that can be very lucrative. She also gained $850,000 in GoFundMe campaigns. So I don’t know.

Christine Ford, either a fraud, or a liar, or a lunatic or some combination of the three – demonstrably so. Contradicted herself, contradicted by the people she said could corroborate it. She is now given the spotlight over this girl, Rachael Denhollander, who actually is an inspiration, who actually did go out and blow the whistle on this guy Larry Nassar and get him thrown in the clink. She is the inspiration. The left completely flips it, and now we’ve got this fraud who makes light of people who have actually suffered sexual abuse because she made up some ridiculous story from 35 or 36 or 37 years ago – we don’t know because she doesn’t know! Where a guy allegedly pushed her onto a bed. It totally takes away and detracts from people who have actually suffered sexual abuse, like the gymnasts at the hands of Larry Nassar. It only gets worse from there with the left.
