Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren on Wednesday fired back at former NFL player Reggie Bush over statements he made regarding her comments on due process amid the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Lahren asked the football star if he thinks “women should always be believed?” and pointed out a 2015 Sports Illustrated report where Bush denied accusations of drugging women at a party.

"Do you think women should always be believed? What happens when someone accuses you?" Lahren, a vocal conservative and Kavanaugh supporter, tweeted. "Are you willing to abandon due process and just accept guilt because a woman accused you?"

Bush, a frequent critic of the Trump administration, had ripped previous Lahren comments on Fox News regarding Christine Blasey Ford's allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in the summer of 1982.

He tweeted “The devil is alive and working his ass off!” and included a clip of Lahren speaking about the Kavanaugh case.

"This is so disgusting and sickening to my stomach! On national tv!" Bush tweeted. "This is pure evil nothing more nothing less! The devil is alive and working his ass off!Tammy you work for the devil plain and simple!"

In the clip, Lahren criticized the idea that all women who accuse men of sexual misconduct should be believed. She contended that women should not all be automatically believed simply because they are women. 

How allegations of sexual assault are treated in the public theater has become a focal point as the Senate Judiciary Committee weighs the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has unequivocally denied Ford's allegations and presented his calendars from the time, which seem to show no trace of the party.

The three other people Ford has said attended the event have all denied ever going to one even similar to what she described. 

This included a lifelong friend of Ford's who has said she has never met Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has also been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women, Julie Swetnick and Deborah Ramirez.

Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a college  dorm-room party and Swetnick has said that Kavanaugh helped drug girls at parties in high school and "gang rape" them, saying she was a victim and Kavanaugh was present when she was attacked.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all the allegations. 

Ford and Kavanaugh are testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday and the panel plans to vote on the confirmation on Friday.
