Trump Draws Outrage After Attacking Christine Ford’s Allegation Against Kavanaugh: ‘Full Slut Shaming’

President Trump attacked Christine Ford and the other political factors getting in the way of Brett Kavanaugh‘s ascension to the Supreme Court on Friday, setting off a firestorm of controversy unwanted by Republican supporters of the judge.

In his latest tweets, Trump went after the “radical left wing politicians” calling for a delay on Kavanaugh’s confirmation so that Ford has a chance to testify about the sexual assault the aspiring justice allegedly committed against her. Trump also questioned Ford’s account because she didn’t file a police report after the incident, saying “why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?”

“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” Trump wrote.

Trump’s suggestion that Ford’s allegations aren’t credible because she did not report them to the police naturally drew outrage, plenty of fact-checking, and Twitter users pointing out that the last thing Republicans need is the president attacking a possible victim of sexual assault.
