Donald Trump's Supreme Court Judge nominee, Brett Kavanaugh appeared on Fox Newson Monday evening to defend himself against sexual assault allegations.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexually assaulting Dr Christine Blasey Ford at a high school party in 1982, as well as Deborah Ramirez who has accused him of sexual misconduct while they were at Yale University.

Appearing alongside his wife, Ashley, Kavanaugh proclaimed his innocence by stating that he had never attended such a party or engaged in "any sexual or physical activity with Dr Ford."

He also added that he never had any type of sexual intercourse in high school or college and was a virgin for "many years" after leaving college.

I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter ... The girls from the schools I went to, and I, were friends.

Fox presenter Martha MacCallum responded by asking:

Through all these years that were in question, you were a virgin?

Kavanaugh replies:

That's correct.

Extracts from the interview had begun to circulate online before it was aired, after being obtained by the New York Times and CNN.

People immediately began to question Kavanaugh's defence of himself as neither Ford nor Ramirez has said that there was any intercourse during their interactions with him and just because he was a virgin, doesn't mean he is incapable of assault of this nature.

Others have pointed out that he is using the involuntary celibate argument that is usually associated with the new trend amongst male virgins who identify as Incels.

Although this is a relatively new trend, it has already become a controversial subject and it's probably the last group of people that Kavanaugh wanted to be associated with right now.
