Dr. Christine Blasey Ford ‘Horrified’ by President Trump’s Mocking Her on Campaign Trail

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz, and Lisa Banks sat down with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt and say that their client is still receiving ‘unending’ death threats and has not been able to return home after her hearing.

During last night’s episode of Kasie DC, Ford’s legal team shared that their client had not watched the Kavanaugh testimony but had seen President Donald Trump’s mocking of her during a campaign rally and was “horrified” by it.

Hunt pressed and asked if Dr. Ford was emotional about Trump’s public ridicule and if she found it distressing.

Her attorney’s replied, “She was upset by it, yes, as any woman would be who is the victim of sexual assault, who is mocked and belittled by anyone, never mind the president of the United States.”

President Trump ridiculed Ford’semotional testimony at a campaign rally Thursday night, which he explained in a Saturday night phone call to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro.

“I thought I had to even the playing field. It was very unfair to the judge, and now I can very nicely say Justice Kavanaugh. It was a very unfair situation.”

“So I evened the playing field,”
