Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony at rally in Mississippi

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's claim.

President Donald Trump ignited a crowd at a campaign rally in MS on Tuesday by mocking a woman who has claimed she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh decades ago. "I thought her testimony was very compelling, and she looks like a very fine woman to me, very fine woman", Trump said of Ford while speaking to reporters on Friday. "Sometimes I had too many beers", he told the panel.

When Trump says it's a very scary time for young men in America he does not mean the crisis of police violence or the opioid epidemic or the ubquity of guns.

Imitating her, he said: "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember". She was questioned for more than two hours on Sunday and provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation with a list of over 20 possible witnesses, the person said.

"How did you get there? I would feel awful that we destroyed Kavanaugh", said Graham.

The president's comments were similar to those of his son, Donald Trump Jr., who told the Daily Mail he was more concerned about how his sons will be affected by the #MeToo movement than his daughters.

In the extraordinary hearing on Thursday, September 27, Kavanaugh vehemently denied the sexual abuse allegations, and also aggressively challenged suggestions he had a drinking problem at the time. "You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life, and somebody could accuse of something".

"I had one beer, that's all I remember", Trump said, mocking Ford. He concluded by lamenting that Kavanaugh's life was "shattered".

Officials said Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 percent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff.

But earlier, the Senate Democratic leader claimed there was "mounting evidence that Judge Kavanaugh is just not credible".

"What's happening here has more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice", Trump said, adding he hopes the Senate votes later this week to confirm Kavanaugh as the high court's ninth justice.

A defiant Kavanaugh came out with guns blazing, insisting the assault never happened, accusing Democrats of destroying his reputation and condemning his confirmation battle as a "national disgrace".

An FBI investigation is an important step, and should be completed.

Ugh. His logic is utterly demeaning to the victims of sexual misconduct, but it's exactly the type of narrow-minded garbage we'd expect from the man who was accused of sexual assault and still became president.
