President Donald Trump mocked Christine Blasey Ford at a rally on Tuesday, in his most direct attack yet on the woman who accused his Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Trump made fun of Ford’s inability to provide certain details about the night she said Kavanaugh attacked her 36 years ago at a party in high school.
“I had one beer!” he said, impersonating Ford at his Mississippi rally. “How did you get home? I don’t remember. How did you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know!”
“Upstairs, downstairs where was it? I don’t know,” he said, to laughter and applause.

“And a man’s life is in tatters,” Trump continued. “His wife is shattered.”
The president’s comments conflict with his initial reaction to Ford’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he called “compelling” and “credible” last week. Aides, including Kellyanne Conway, boasted about Trump’s restraint in responding to the testimony.
At his rally, Trump also went after Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti, whose new client Julie Swetnick lobbed explosive of unsubstantiated claims against Kavanaugh.
