The left bid to demonize Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh hit a new low Tuesday when a CNN guest, in comparison with the federal court to Bill Cosby, just as the disgraced comic would be sentenced to prison time for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman.

The response by Texas prosecutor-turned-lawyer Yodit Tewolde went unchecked by the network anchor. Tewolde said she found it “disturbing” that social media users can cheer Cosby’s downfall, while the defense Kavanaugh of allegations that he sexually assaulted a girl at a high school party during the 1980s.

“Someone that the defense of Kavanaugh could not, in the same breath now applaud this judgment that the court has spoken in the same breath,” Tewolde said. “It’s just not a good idea.”

After a beat of silence, CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked a different analyst, lawyer Mark Geragos, a question about the Cosby’s sentencing.

While cable-news with making eccentric comments on a regular basis, viewers quickly took Baldwin to task on social media to keep silent.

What. The. Heck.

Cosby = tried and convicted with proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

Kavanaugh = not even the witnesses who are offered by the accusers can put him at the scene of the alleged crimes. https://t.co/M0ZUo5E79I

Kavanaugh is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about accusations brought by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor and former school friend, who is also scheduled to appear. Ford claims that a drunk Kavanaugh caught her under him on a bed at a high school house party and tried to take off her clothes before she escaped, an accusation that Kavanaugh has repeatedly and vehemently denied.

Cosby was sentenced to between three and 10 years in prison for the drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004. More than 60 women accused him of similar actions in the past 50 years.

According to her LinkedIn page, Tewolde spent two years and nine months as an assistant district attorney in Dallas County, Texas, before they are in a private practice. She describes herself as a “nationally known criminal defense lawyer and legal analyst.”

Tewolde defended her remarks on social media, at one point tweeting bluntly, “I have said what I said.”
