Nancy Mace’s Office Calls for Apology from ABC’s Stephanopoulos

( – South Carolina Republican Representative Nancy Mace’s office called for an apology after a heated exchange between the congresswoman and ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Mace, who was raped at 16 years old, felt that Stephanopoulos tried to shame her during the interview for her decision to endorse former President Trump because he was “found liable for rape and for defaming the victim of that rape.” However, Stephanopoulos was incorrect. He repeated the inaccurate claim 10 times during the interview. Trump was found liable for wanton abuse and defamation in a civil lawsuit, which he is appealing.

The congresswoman’s spokesperson, Gabrielle Lipsky, told Fox News that women’s groups should demand Stephanopoulos apologize for his actions. Lipsky also said that ABC’s female leaders should require him to issue an apology for disrespecting Mace. A spokesperson for ABC News defended Stephanopoulos’s questions, but the network refused to comment when asked if he would apologize. Instead, the spokesperson said that Stephanopoulos was “asking meaningful questions” that ABC’s viewers found to be relevant.

Fox News contacted over a dozen women’s groups in the United States to see if they would call for an apology from Stephanopoulos. However, not one single group made the suggestion. The Vice President of RAINN, one of the largest organizations advocating against wanton violence, expressed gratitude to Mace and Trump’s accuser, E. Jean Carroll, for telling their stories to the world.

During the interview with Stephanopoulos, Mace pointed out that Trump had not been criminally convicted of rape. The following day, Mace appeared on Fox News the following day and explained to Harris Faulkner how shocked she was when Stephanopoulos played a video of her telling her rape story. She had not authorized the use of the video or the line of questioning when she agreed to do the interview.

Beverly Hallberg, a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, told Fox News that it was wrong to surprise Mace with that clip. She also added that it was hypocritical of Stephanopoulos to take that angle given that he had worked with and defended former President Bill Clinton, who was accused of rape.
