Trump gets slammed on Twitter for mocking Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony

President Donald Trump on Tuesday mocked Christine Blasey Ford at a “Make America Great Again” rally in Mississippi, the Cut reports.

In his speech, Trump scoffingly imitated Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and doubted the validity of her claims that she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the 1980s.

Last week following her testimony, Trump said Ford “was very compelling” and that “she looks like a very fine woman.” But during Tuesday’s rally, he taunted Ford, pretending to speak both as her and the lawyer who interviewed her during the hearing.

“‘I had one beer.’ Well do you think it was…” Trump said. “‘Nope. It was one beer.’ Oh good. 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 neighborhood was it in?” he continued as the crowd cheered. “‘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 then said that “a man’s life is in tatters” and said people against Kavanaugh’s confirmation are “evil.”

Ford’s lawyer, Michael Bromwich, tweeted that Trump’s speech was a “vicious, vile and soulless attack” on his client.

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano, who attended Kavanaugh’s hearing as a guest of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), tweeted that Trump’s mocking of Ford was “the most misogynist display of barbaric insensitivity” she had seen.
