Jake Tapper Rips Trump for Mocking Christine Ford: ‘There Appears to Be No Bottom’


CNN’s Jake Tapper went off on President Donald Trump this afternoon for “turning Professor Christine Blasey Ford into an object of ridicule” last night.

Last night at his latest rally, Trump mockingly commented on Ford’s testimony about her alleged sexual assault to a crowd that ate it up.

Tapper highlighted some of those reactions and recalled what Ford specifically said about how she remembered the laughing from that night.

Senator John Cornyn said such comments are not “useful,” and after bringing up his remarks Tapper said this:

“We don’t know if President Trump thinks it’s useful to ridicule a woman claiming she was sexually assaulted or if he just did it ’cause he thought it was fun. But let’s take a moment to reflect that the President of the United States believes it’s appropriate. There appears to be no bottom.”
