Don Jr. and Senior HUD Official Mock Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Allegations on Instagram


Donald Trump Jr. mocked Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accuser in an Instagram post, calling her allegations “nonsense games.”

“Oh boy… the Dems and their usual nonsense games really have him on the ropes now,” Trump Jr. wrote in the caption. “Finestein had the letter in July and saved it for the eve of his vote… honorable as always. I believe this is a copy for full transparency.”

He finished the post with a Make America Great Again hashtag.

The picture compared the allegations that Kavanaugh attempted to rape Christine Blasey Ford in high school to a satirical hand written note in-which a teenage Kavanaugh asks someone to be his girlfriend.

Lynne Patton, a senior HUD official, responded to the post with with a laughing face and person raising hands emojis.

Since the initial allegations circulated, Ford has publicly discussed her claims, telling the Washington Post that Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”

Patton released a statement on Monday defending her comment on Instagram:

Since posting the photo, Trump Jr. liked a since-deleted tweet calling the Kavanaugh allegations a “lynching.”
