Donald Trump Mocks Christine Blasey Ford at Rally in Mississippi

Share

Christine Blasey Ford as "credible", mocked her Senate Judiciary Committee testimony at a campaign rally in Mississippi Tuesday.

Earlier Tuesday night, the New York Times published a bombshell report detailing how Trump received hundreds of millions of dollars from his father's real estate empire, undercutting the image Trump has long crafted of himself as a self-made man. Trump noted that she did not remember during her testimony how she got home following what she described as a sexual assault by Kavanaugh. "What neighborhood was it in?"

"I don't know - over and over", he said, framing Ford's testimony. 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' I don't know.

Imitating Ford, he added, "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember".

"You know for ten years, I don't know him, I never met him, but I've been hearing, 'There's this guy named Brett Kavanaugh, who is like a flawless person destined for the Supreme Court", President Trump said before launching into a full-throated dismissal of the decades-old sexual misconduct allegations recently brought forth against Kavanaugh.

"A man's life is in tatters", he said.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fuelled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.

Ford's lawyer Michael Bromwich called Trump's attack "vicious, vile and soulless". "I don't know", the president continued, amid cheers from the audience.

Body found in hunt for six-year-old boy — Maddox Ritch missing
The little boy's mother Carrie Ritch appeared at a press conference where she pleaded through tears for help locating her child. Maddox, who is autistic and does not speak, disappeared on Saturday when he ran ahead of his father at Rankin Lake Park.

Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 20 women, whose allegations he has denied and dismissed.

"My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty".

President Trump, as well as his family, have raised fears about the possibility of politically motivated false accusations. "Think of your sons", Trump told the crowd. I don't remember. How many years ago was it? Thad Cochran (R), who resigned in April amid health concerns.

The crowd cheered at Trump's cruel ridicule of a victim of sexual assault.

"You could be somebody that was flawless their entire life and someone could accuse you of something", Trump said.

Mr. Trump also attacked Espy, a former congressman and the leading Democratic contender, saying a vote for him "is a vote for the Democrat agenda". "They have "gang rape" many times", he said.

Adding to the controversy, lawyers for two of the accusers said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses and following leads that would support their allegations.
