WATCH: ‘The View’ Hosts Say Women Almost Never Lie About Being Raped

According to the hosts of “The View,” women almost never lie about being raped, which is exactly why they think Brett Kavanaugh is guilty of the charge brought against him by Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges he sexually assaulted her at a pool party 36 years ago.

The panel started off with a clip of Donald Trump Jr. saying he now fears for the future of his son based on the “scary” climate that Ford’s allegation has produced. “The View” hosts could not believe he would say this and even suggested his son may already have the tendency to sexually assault.

“You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies! If your child is not someone who’s assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for him,” said Whoopi Goldberg.

The comment prompted co-host Abby Huntsman to say that men should indeed be afraid of false accusations.

“I think a lot of people are concerned about today is you could be accused when you have been raised the right way, when you did nothing in that situation,” said Huntsman. “We have countless of examples where that has happened.”

When Huntsman mentioned the Duke lacrosse team as proof, the hosts brushed it aside as just one example. They forgot the UVA fraternity rape hoax and the various rape hoaxes mentioned here.

Co-host Sonny Hostin then asserted that false accusations are a non-existent problem and they almost never happen.

“Rape is the least reported crime in the country, and on top of that, less than 2% — it’s about 2% of those allegations are false. So when you look at it statistically, it’s very rare for a false accusation to have been made,” Hostin asserted.

“It’s very, very rare,” Hostin concluded.
