President Donald Trump for the first time directly mocked Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee at a rally in Mississippi, casting doubt on her testimony about her alleged sexual assault.
Trump imitated Ford during her testimony before the crowd, mocking her for not knowing the answer to questions such as how she got to the party.
“’I had one beer.’ Well do you think it was… ‘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.'”
The crowd began to cheer and laugh, as the President continued imitating Ford recounting the night she says she was nearly raped.
“What neighborhood 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 continued.
“And a man’s life is in tatters,” Trump said. “A man’s life is shattered.”
Trump then called Democrats against Kavanaugh “evil people” who are out to “destroy people.”
Trump also reiterated his earlier claims Tuesday that nowadays you are “guilty until proven innocent.”
