CHRIS PLANTE (RADIO HOST): It's embarrassing. I mean, look, these people have no credibility, honestly. Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon -- for God's sake,.Don Lemon theorized that the Indian airliner that disappeared over the Indian Ocean was sucked up by a black hole, and he's still on the air. Lawrence O'Donnell, I mean, you know -- come on.
The woman, the poor woman, the poor, poor woman -- she's a 75-year-old woman.
She obviously doesn't quite remember exactly what happened 24 or 25 years ago, doesn't know exactly what year it was, knows what department store it was, I know it's a well-populated department store with a lot of security and a lot of cameras and seems to me something happening in Bergdorfs is probably unlikely.
But -- but OK, and as you said, she's selling a book. She's out making the rounds of the shows after having kept this dark secret for 24 or 25 years, and now she talks about how rape is sexy, and rape fantasies, and then begins flirting with Anderson Cooper. I think that's going nowhere, and it's just getting weirder all the time.
And honestly, look, I mean, Tucker, you know that the standard in the media for Republicans is the accusation. You look at [Supreme Court Justice] Brett Kavanaugh, you look at any Republican, the mere accusation is enough to hang you from the tallest tree.
