Trump Mocks Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford at Mississippi Rally

Outpouring of anger on Twitter after Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser

During a rally in Missippi on Tuesday night, Trump mocked California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, parodying tearful testimony last week in which she alleged that Kavanaugh held her down, put his hand over her mouth and tried to remove her clothing.

Mr Trump said it was a "very scary situation" to be "guilty until proven innocent".

The idea that people in the US are wrongfully "guilty until proven innocent" is an idea that wasn't manifesting itself politically on the right until last week, GOP pollster Frank Luntz told The Washington Post. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said outside the White House.

Earlier on Tuesday Mr Trump told reporters it was a "very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of".

Some lawmakers say they worry the political fight over Kavanaugh's nomination is melding with the broader #MeToo movement in a way that could politicize the discussion of assault in general.

But Flake isn't saying whether he'll vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"36 years ago, this happened", Trump said referring to the 1982 party where Ford alleges the assault took place.

The poll has less rosy news for Republicans as a Quinnipiac poll released at the same time: voters still believe they'll turn out for Democrats in November, even though Democrats have treated the Supreme Court nomination process like a kangaroo court. You can be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody can accuse you of something. The audience laughed as Trump, at times inaccurately, recounted what he described as holes in her testimony.

But in a written declaration leaked to the media on Tuesday, an unidentified ex-lover said that during their six-year relationship, Ford never exhibited any of the post-assault anxiety or fears that she detailed during her senate testimony.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" 'Where's the house?' I don't know. "I don't know", he continued.

Mark Judge To Cooperate With FBI On Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Investigation
Flake suggested the probe be limited to the current allegations against Kavanaugh. The Kavanaugh senate confirmation hearing has divided women across the country.

"But I had one beer! I don't know. But I had one beer, that's the only thing I remember".

A witness told police the man who threw the glass was Chris Dudley, Mr Kavanaugh's close friend. Kavanaugh vehemently denies the accusation.

That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote. "I just say it's kind of appalling", Flake said of Trump's comments. If those pretending they want to find the truth, don't say we can't find the truth when she doesn't know all the facts.

The FBI is conducting a background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

Flake has previously said that his vote depends on the results of the FBI's investigation and has declined to speculate on whether he would be comfortable voting on Kavanaugh if the probe is not yet completed. Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.

Not so, argued Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, contending the Democrats are simply looking to "move the goalposts" to prevent Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, said a Friday vote would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Judge has said that he has no memory of the alleged incident and never saw Kavanaugh behave like that. He said she was cooperating with the investigation.

He said they carried on a long distance relationship while she was living in Hawaii that ended when he found out she'd been unfaithful to him.

Flake and Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote. By Ford's own testimony there are gaps in her memory, there are facts that she can not remember.
