DAVID WEBB (CONTRIBUTOR): [Washington Post's] Jonathan Capehart, I see him as the next generation of race pimp. He simply wants to take the over from Al Sharpton. He's done this before. The real discussions here should be around the issues. Was there, as the allegations assert, an attack, or an incident, or groping, whatever? But that's no longer the issue. This is about the destruction of a man, the destruction of the president's nominee, because the Democrats have no other card left to play. They're losing on the important issues to Americans, so they have to play identity politics, and they have to move that forward. And as for Dr. Ford, look -- and I believe the judge put it in the right context in his testimony, in his opening statement -- to the effect that if she, she may be a victim, but it wasn't him. Whether she's a victim or not, she's a willing participant in this political con, and that's what's being played out on the American people.
RACHEL CAMPOS DUFFY (CO-HOST): Well, it's interesting. They keep bringing up white privilege. I know they're saying it's male white privilege, but they both grew up in the same privileged D.C. suburbs. She said she went to --
CAMPOS DUFFY: She spent her summers diving in a country club. I certainly didn't spend my summers practicing diving in a country club. I don't see why any of this is relevant to exactly what you said, the facts of the matter.
WEBB: Yeah, look, they're not going to look into this is the way they should as the Democrats have not. They're not going to look into allegations, and if allegations are evidence of guilt, well, then there's a whole host of Democrats like Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton, and others who have had serious allegations.
PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): But their idea is that the evidence of guilt is the fact that he's a white man of privilege. That's the first sin, the first evidence of guilt, and then everything else cascades from there. How do you walk back from that ledge where you start with that premise?
CAMPOS-DUFFY: Here they are constantly decrying systematic racial profiling of African-Americans when it comes to law enforcement. They're racially profiling, gender profiling in this case.
HEGSETH: They're trying to win in education by indoctrinating kids to have white guilt in college and elsewhere. They're trying to remake our society right now.
