Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at MS rally

Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at MS rally

Mr Trump also criticised Prof Christine Blasey Ford - whose testimony before the Senate judiciary committee last week sparked off the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry. That tone went out the window at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, where the president mocked Ford's testimony in front of a cheering crowd, NBC reports.

At his rally, the president mocked Ford's testimony with a question-and-answer patter that brought cheers from the crowd in Southaven, Mississippi. "Do you know how bad a fight has to be for the police to get called on a white guy at an Ivy League school in the '80s?!? You can be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something ... and you're automatically guilty". I don't remember. Where is the place?

"Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a frightful thing to me. I don't know", he continued, as the audience from DeSoto County - a heavily conservative region - applauded. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

The president's campaign blitz comes amid a week-long supplementary investigation into the sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Cindy Hyde-Smith. Facing a three-way race between Democrat Mike Espy and far-right Republican state Sen. In doing so, Trump is feeding off the explosion of male resentment that is only growing in the wake of a college professor's allegations against Trump's Supreme Court pick which has now turned into a national circus.

"One thing we know for sure: The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here on this floor, this week", McConnell said during a floor speech in which he also dismissed some recent media reports about Kavanaugh's decades-old behavior.

Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of pinning her down and trying to remove her clothing at a high school party 36 years ago. "I don't know", he added, to cheers from supporters.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes.

Under pressure from opposition Democrats and a handful of his own Republicans, Trump on Friday ordered a fresh FBI investigation into allegations of Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct during his youth.

"With all of that you can not say that we've done anything but be respectful, and I do".

"It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump said.

First: A new report from the Wall Street Journal said President Donald Trump personally directed his attorney and one of his sons to prevent the porn star from going public with her claim that she'd had a sexual affair with him before he won the presidency.

Ford's attorneys say they heard nothing from anyone at the bureau since that Friday night phone call, and they say it is "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a deeper inquiry into the allegations against Kavanaugh without interviewing Ford. McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.

Trump's mocking remarks come amid a protracted and heated confirmation process for Kavanaugh.

Keyser, a longtime friend of Ford's, was present at the small party where Ford was attacked, according to Ford's testimony before the Judiciary Committee.

Democrats countered that accusations of sexual misconduct must not be dismissed as a smear campaign and that accounts of Kavanaugh's past behavior by former classmates and associates suggest the nominee may have misled lawmakers about his drinking habits and other matters.

Agents also have not contacted Julie Swetnick, who alleges in a sworn statement that Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, tried to get teenage girls "inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys".
