As RedState previously reported, things took a decidedly ugly turn on Sunday during a “This Week” segment when ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos tried his best to rape shame Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) in a heated exchange over her support for former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential candidacy.

The grounds for the attempted shaming stemmed from the E. Jean Carroll case against Trump, whom Carroll has accused of sexual assault although she can’t recall the year the alleged crime happened and once bizarrely joked about how she’d spend the millions she won from the second defamation case.

During the interview, Mace talked about the fact that she had been a victim of rape as a teenager and how she had carried shame with her for 30 years. She told Stephanopoulos she found it highly offensive and disgusting that he would try to use that against her in the context of her support for Donald Trump, who Stephanopoulos falsely declared had been “found liable for rape.”

“As a rape victim… how can you endorse Trump?” he asked.

“It was not a criminal court case, No. 1. No. 2, I live with shame. And you’re asking me a question about my political choices trying to shame me as a rape victim,” Mace responded.

For those who missed it, here’s how their contentious back-and-forth went down:

Stephanopoulos, who in the 1990s worked as a sexual harassment/rape apologist senior advisor for then-President Bill Clinton, briefly defended Carroll after Mace criticized her for the joke she made to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow in late January about how they’re about “gonna go shopping!” after the $83 million verdict. In response, Carroll thanked him on the Twitter machine while seemingly showing support for Mace:

Because of that tweet, and because Carroll has said that she’d do whatever she could to get Joe Biden reelected, Biden accuser Tara Reade blasted back, asking Carroll how she could support Joe Biden when she (Carroll) had previously indicated to her in private messages that she believed her allegation of Biden sexually assaulting her when he was a Senator in 1993:

As of this writing, Carroll has not responded to Reade’s tweet. Presumably, she’s out doing some of that shopping, perhaps to buy a nice gift for George Stephanopoulos.
