Nancy Mace Accuses ABC Host of Shaming Her for Supporting Trump

Nancy Mace recently had a sit-down with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.” However, the interview quickly got combative and just kept going downhill from there.

It saw Rep. Nancy Mace repeatedly accusing ABC host George Stephanopoulos of shaming her as a rape victim. And all because she supports Donald Trump.

Mace did not mince words with Stephanopoulos. When he challenged her endorsement of Trump, she said: “I’m not going to sit here on your show and be asked a question meant to shame me about another potential rape victim. I’m not going to do that.”

Stephanopoulos tried severally to get her to condemn Trump for his sexual misconduct. He also tried to make her explain any inconsistency in supporting him despite her well-established personal history.

Mace became a rape victim at age 16. As an elected official, she has pushed for exceptions for rape and incest in abortion laws, among other things.

She based her argument on two main points. That Trump has no conviction in a criminal trial and that E. Jean Carroll, who got millions in lawsuits against Trump, deserves condemnation for how she speaks about the money. 

“She’s joked about it. I find it offensive and I also find it offensive that you are trying to shame me with this question,” Mace said.

Stephanopoulos repeatedly denied attempting to belittle her. According to him, he was only trying to shed more light on what he thinks is an inconsistent position.

“I’m asking a very simple question,” he said at some point. But she refused to accept it, and instead, she argued about how he was shaming and belittling her. They went back and forth along those lines for several minutes.

Just to be clear, he reframed the question again later. “You don’t find it offensive that Donald Trump has been found liable for rape?”

“I find it offensive that as a rape victim, you’re trying to shame me for my political choices, and I’ve said again, repeatedly, E. Jean Carroll has made a mockery out of rape by joking about it,” Mace replied.

It’s anyone’s guess why Mace is so loyal to Trump, but Stephanopoulos believes she should be livid with him for his less-than-saintly past.

Meanwhile, she is not the only one who seems to have zeroed her mind on Trump as America’s savior. Recent polls have shown that the former president’s approval rating has increased while Biden’s has been falling. 

Some of the reasons for that fall are speculation on how mentally fit he is to lead office and the migrant crisis that is only getting worse.
