Trump Ridicules Testimony of Woman Who Accused Kavanaugh of Sexual Assault

SOUTHAVEN, Mississippi – United States President Donald Trump ridiculed on Tuesday the testimony of Christine Ford, the woman who has made sexual assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s Supreme Court nominee.

At a rally in Southaven, Mississippi, Trump cast doubts on the version of events presented by Ford under oath during testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, in which she described in detail the alleged sexual assault committed by Kavanaugh.

“How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember.’ How’d you get there? ‘I don’t remember.’ Where is the place? ‘I don’t remember.’ How many years ago was it?’ I don’t know,’” Trump said, apparently mocking Ford’s responses.

“What neighborhood was it in? ‘I don’t know,’ Where’s the house? ‘I don’t know. Upstairs, downstairs, where I was. I don’t know. But I had one beer. That’s the only thing I remember,’” he added.

The president said Ford’s testimony had “shattered” Kavanaugh and his family, and added that those who had supported the allegations – an apparent reference to the Democrats – were “evil.”

In her testimony, Ford had said that she was “100 percent sure” that Kavanaugh had attempted to rape her in summer 1982.

The allegations have led to the FBI reopening a probe against Kavanaugh ahead of the Senate vote to confirm or reject his nomination to the Supreme Court.

In addition to Ford, at least two other women have leveled sexual abuse charges against Kavanaugh, while some of his acquaintances have also raised doubts about the veracity of some of his sworn statements, particularly in relation to his drinking habits during his youth.
