On Wednesday, TIME Magazine honored Christine Ford as one of the top 100 most “influential” people in the world.
Ford has become a very famous and rich woman for falsely accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault in high school.
Far Left Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris had some honoring words for Ford.

“Her story, spoken while holding back tears, shook Washington and the country. Her courage, in the face of those who wished to silence her, galvanized Americans. And her unfathomable sacrifice, out of a sense of civic duty, shined a spotlight on the way we treat survivors of sexual violence,” Harris wrote in the magazine for Ford.
“Christine Blasey Ford’s ambition wasn’t to become a household name or make it onto this list,” she added. “She had a good life and a successful career — and risked everything to send a warning in a moment of grave consequence.”
Risked everything? Seriously? Ford is now a rich celebrity for coming forward with a bogus, baseless allegation against Kavanaugh.
“At her core, she is a teacher,” the 2020 presidential candidate added. “And through her courage, she forced the country to reckon with an issue that has too often been ignored and kept in the dark.”
Kavanaugh was also mentioned as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell had some kind words to say about him.
“When unhinged partisanship and special interests sought to distract the Senate from considering those qualifications, we saw other facets of Justice Kavanaugh’s character shine forth as well,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote.
“The country saw his resilience and commitment to public service,” he continued. “We saw his loyal devotion to family and friends. We saw his undeterred reverence for the law, for precedents and for our nation’s highest traditions. It is all these qualities combined that make Justice Kavanaugh exactly the kind of jurist whom the American people deserve on our Supreme Court. I look forward to many years of brilliant, distinguished public service.”
TIME’s editor in chief Edward Felsenthal described how the selections were made.
“We all have teachers, some we know intimately, others who inspire from the page or the screen,” Felsenthal said. “This holds true even for the most accomplished people on earth. Our annual TIME 100 issue is filled with tributes from teachers to students; in many cases, the surprise is who is playing which role today.”
“In many ways, these connections — forged across and among industries — are the heart of the TIME 100, which now, in its 16th year, is far more than a list,” he added. “It is a community of hundreds of global leaders, many of whom support and challenge one another. And at a time when so many of our problems require cross-disciplinary solutions, they are also uniquely positioned to effect change.”
It’s amazing how someone can become one of the most influential people in the world for stating an unverified, flat out lie.
