President Donald Trump mocked Dr Christine Blasey Ford, who last week testified before a Senate committee that the supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
In a discordant campaign rally in Mississipi, at the Landers Center Arena in Southaven, on Tuesday night, Trump imitated Ford who gave her painful testimony last week before the Senate judiciary that the supreme court nominee Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager at the party and Kavanaugh has denied it.
Trump delivered a crude imitation of Ford from her testimony in which she vividly described the incident that happened to her in the early 1980’s but admitted that she did not remember the time and place where the incident occurred and hundreds of Trump supporters at the rally cheered.
Although, Donald Trump has also been accused of sexually assaulting by at least 20 women, whose allegations he has denied and dismissed. But in the last week campaign rally, he called Ford “ a very incredible witness” and said that for him her testimony was very compelling and she seems a beautiful woman to him.
Further, the president Donald Trump continued mocking Ford’s testimony with a question-and-answer pattern that made the crowd gone wild and brought cheers in Southaven, Mississippi.
‘How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember.’ How did 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. I don’t know. I don’t know.”
‘What neighbourhood was it in? ‘I don’t know.’ Where’s the house? ‘I don’t know. Upstairs. Downstairs. I don’t know. But I had one beer that’s the only thing I remember!” Trump said.
Donald Trump concluded the riff by saying that the Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh’s nomination are ‘evil people’ who are out to ‘destroy people.’
He said of Kavanaugh: ‘a man’s life is in tatters. A man’s life is shattered.’
According to him, Kavanaugh is a perfect person who is destined for the Supreme Court. He’s led a life that’s like unbelievable.
Ford has also accurately placed multiple people in Kavanaugh’s coexisting social circle that was also present at the scene. In her testimony, she said: “I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school.”
Kavanaugh is Trump’s 2nd pick to fill a supreme court vacancy. The affirmation procedure for Trump’s first pick, Neil Gorsuch, proceeded to a vote with any controversy.
Moreover, hundreds of law professors have also stepped forward and signed letters rejecting Kavanaugh nomination.
Kavanaugh has also been attacked by accusations of sexual assault by two other women as well, and his testimony before the Senate included a conspiracy and dubious descriptions of his high school and college years.
Kavanaugh, after taking the oath before the Senate committee, denied any drinking problem and bragging about his sexual conquests in a high school yearbook entry.
On the other hand, former classmates have stepped forward claiming that Kavanaugh was a regular drunk. The New York Times on Tuesday published a handwritten letter by Kavanaugh in which he instructed friends in participating in an upcoming holiday rental to “warn the neighbours that were loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us”.
Ford, in his testimony last Thursday described attending a house party in the Washington DC suburbs in the early 1980’s, where she was pushed into a bedroom where Kavanaugh who was drunk held her down, fondled with her and tried to strip her and this incident has left her fearing for her life.
Republicans say that Ford has mistaken the Kavanaugh’s identity. But Ford told the Senate that she was 100% certain that he was her attacker.
