President Trump Mocked Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford at a Mississippi Rally

A lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford is condemning President Donald Trump for mocking his client, who has said she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh when they were teenagers.

As for Trump's comments, the president joked about the details of Ford's allegations that she could not remember while speaking in front of a raucous crowd in MS tonight.

Trump also ripped the effect of Blasey Ford's allegations. "What neighborhood was it in?" 'Where's the house?' I don't know. Downstairs? Where was it?' 'I don't know. I don't know - but I had one beer. "And a man's life is in tatters".

The president lavished praise on Kavanaugh at the rally, and the crowd responded with similar enthusiasm, breaking out into chants of, "We want Kavanaugh!"

Michael R. Bromwich, a lawyer for Blasey Ford, called Trump's comments a "vicious, vile and soulless attack" on her.

Trump was visiting MS to rally support for Sen. "I don't know", the president continued, amid cheers from the audience.

It marked an aggressive change of tactics after the United States president had opted to show restraint towards Christine Blasey Ford, calling her a "very credible witness" following her Senate testimony against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week.


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.

He added: "How did you get there?" 'I don't remember.' How did you get there? I don't remember. How many years ago?

Kavanaugh has staunchly denied allegations now leveled by multiple women, including one who testified that he pinned her against a bed, groped her, tried to take her clothes off and covered her mouth to silence her when they were in high school.

"I've had many false accusations, and when I say it didn't happen no one believes me, but it's my job description", Trump said. It's common for sexual assault victims to remember the attack in great detail, but experience other memory gaps. "Think of your sons", Trump told the crowd. Thad Cochran (R), who resigned in April amid health concerns.

Trump's rendition was met with cheers in Southaven, Mississippi. She faces three candidates - Republican Chris McDaniel and Democrats Mike Espy and Tobey Bernard Bartee - in next month's special election for the remainder of the two-year term. "They have "gang rape" many times", he said.

Lawyers for two of the accusers meanwhile said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses or following leads that would support their allegations.
