As Twitchy reported Wednesday night, Bloomberg’s Jen Epstein shared yet another accusation against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, this one about an alleged rape on a boat in 1985.

What Epstein didn’t point out was that the man making the accusation appears to be a complete loon who’s accused President Trump of murder and begged the Pentagon to stop the parasite in the White House before the Russians parachuted into the country like in “Red Dawn.”

It turns out not even NBC News would touch this one.

OK, hold up a minute. NBC News didn’t pursue it because the accusation “was close to impossible to pursue because there were so many questions about its origins” — and yet, as Twitchy also reported, NBC News on Wednesday night ran with the story that Kavanaugh allegedly physically assaulted a woman in 1998 while he was drunk?

And what were the origins of that accusation? As NBC reports:

When asked about the allegation, contained in an anonymous letter sent to a GOP senator, Kavanaugh responded, “we’re dealing with an anonymous letter about an anonymous person and an anonymous friend. It’s ridiculous. Total twilight zone. And no, I’ve never done anything like that.”

“We have no reason to assign the letter credibility,” Taylor Foy, a spokesperson for Judiciary chairman Charles Grassley said. “And even if we did, we’d have no way to investigate the allegation as it was made anonymously and cannot be corroborated. The committee regularly receives anonymous letters, some of which are viewed with credibility, but many of which are not. To make sure no stone was left unturned, the committee asked Judge Kavanaugh yesterday about this anonymous letter. Judge Kavanaugh flatly denied any such event ever happened.”

“There were at least four witnesses including my daughter.” The writer of the letter provided no names but said the alleged victim was still traumatized and had decided to remain anonymous herself.

So pass on crazy boat guy, run with anonymous mother who wrote an anonymous letter about an alleged victim who wished to remain anonymous.

Yeah, it’s been a banner day for the media:
