Nancy Mace slams George Stephanopoulos for ‘shaming me’ as a rape survivor

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) criticized ABC host George Stephanopoulos for asking how she could endorse former President Donald Trump, with the television host noting how Trump had been found “liable for rape.”

Mace said in her appearance on Stephanopoulos’s show that she herself was a victim of rape when she was 16 years old, a story she has discussed in the past in her career as a politician. She then told the host that she would not “sit here on your show” to be asked a question meant to shame her.

“I was asked to speak on 2024 today, NOT my own rape,” Mace wrote on the social media platform X following her appearance on This Week. “I’ve carried this shame for 30 years, a shame George Stephanopolous will never know. I don’t need @gstephanopolous ‘mansplaining’ rape to me or shaming me on national TV for being a survivor of rape.”

Byron York, the Washington Examiner’s chief political correspondent, also took issue with Stephanopoulos and his questions to Mace, describing his “dishonesty” as “striking.” He also noted how the jury found Trump liable for “sexual abuse” instead of rape in the case related to E. Jean Carroll.

“The judge later tried to spin the decision, citing laws that did not apply, to argue that the jury ‘implicitly’ found Trump liable for rape,” York wrote on X. “In the absence of an actual jury finding of rape, the judge guessed that the jury’s decision ‘necessarily implies’ rape. Stephanopoulos, in spite of the jury’s written finding, on 10 occasions said Trump had been found legally liable for rape. Why not just be accurate and say Trump was found liable for sexual abuse?”

Mace also received the backing of her fellow Republican lawmaker Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who slammed Stephanopoulos’s “absolutely abhorrent behavior.” Boebert added that ABC ought to put the television anchor “on the bench” for his treatment of Mace.
