Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at campaign rally

03 October, 2018, 11:07 | Author: Edward Snyder

President Donald Trump appeared at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi on Tuesday night and took on the vague and uncorroborated allegations launched against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by California professor Christine Blasey Ford.

As for Trump's comments, the president joked about the details of Ford's allegations that she could not remember while speaking in front of a raucous crowd in MS tonight.

Mr Kavanaugh has denied Ms Ford's allegations. "What neighborhood was it in?" 'I don't know. I don't know. 'I don't know. Upstairs. I don't remember. How'd you get there? "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know", President Trump said, imitating Blasey Ford's testimony to the cheers of the crowd at the rally.

He said that Kavanaugh's life was "in tatters" and urged the crowd to think about his family. "They destroy people, these are really evil people", Trump said.

Ms Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, called Mr Trump's attack "vicious, vile and soulless".

President Trump maliciously used that handicap against Ford at the rally.

Lemon went on to show the video of Trump reacting to Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week in-which he called her a "very credible witness" and a "very fine woman".




His confirmation continues to hang in the balance as the FBI investigates the allegation, which Mr Kavanaugh has forcefully denied. I don't remember. How'd you get there? Trump himself has been accused of harassment by many women and has been caught on tape bragging about groping women. "That's the only thing I remember", he said, waving a finger in the air. 'How many years ago was it?' I don't know.

Trump's rendition was met with cheers in Southaven, Mississippi.

He reiterated his earlier claims Tuesday that nowadays you are "guilty until proven innocent", and stepped up his line of argument that men are under attack in America, without mentioning survivors of sexual assault.

"You could be somebody that was flawless their entire life and someone could accuse you of something", Trump said. Thad Cochran (R), who resigned in April amid health concerns.

The former two-term governor, who would be the first Democrat to win a Senate campaign in Tennessee since Al Gore in 1990 if he's victorious, has run TV ads in which he says that he's "not running against Donald Trump" and learned long ago to "separate the message from the messenger". But the event's start was slightly delayed until just after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement pushing back on the article and suggesting that the newspaper should apologize for its reporting.

Trump said the strong economy "means more jobs for our great electrical contractors".

Lawyers for two of the accusers meanwhile said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses or following leads that would support their allegations.
