( – On Sunday, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) got into a discourse with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos following her recent endorsement of the former President. She proceeded to also claim that the ABC host had shamed her over being a rape victim with the questions he had asked. 

During the interview, Stephanopoulos played a video clip of Mace from “This Week” where she had spoken about being a rape victim before her 2019 announcement that she was running for Congress. Stephanopoulos had then proceeded to ask her how she had squared that experience with her endorsement of the former President, who has been found liable for sexual battery in the civil case brought forward by E. Jean Carroll. 

Mace had proceeded to argue in response that Stephanopoulos was attempting to shame her over being a rape victim. She added that she had been raped when she was 16 years old, and that much like every other rape victim, she has had to live with a lot of shame relating to being raped. She added that she had not come forward with her accusations because of the shame she had felt about having been raped. 

She proceeded to argue that this was a shame that Stephanopoulos would never be able to feel and that she would not be sitting there to be asked questions that are attempting to shame her regarding a different potential rape victim. 

Stephanopoulos however countered this argument noting that his question was not about shaming but rather one about former president Trump.
