Donald Trump Mocks Christine Blasey Ford's Testimony At Mississippi Rally

With the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh resting on a knife edge, President Donald Trump picked a Tuesday campaign rally to unleash his most direct broadside yet at his nominee's accuser. Lemon said after playing the clip of Trump's new attacks against Ford.

"I don't know - over and over", he said, framing Ford's testimony. Downstairs? Where was it?' 'I don't know. I don't remember. Where is the place?

"'I had one beer.' Well do you think it was..." he said, playing both the role of Ford and her questioner.

The president warned about a unsafe and "damn sad situation" in the country where a man's life can be destroyed over accusations over misconduct and are assumed guilty instead of innocent.

As Republicans fight headwinds ahead of the November 6 midterm election, Mr. Trump rallied his supporters behind Sen. I don't know. What neighborhood was it in?

The president, who days ago said Ford's testimony was "very credible", ridiculed her memory to cheers in the audience, suggesting certain details she didn't recall were evidence that she wasn't telling the truth.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. How did you get there?

Swetnick accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during parties in the 1980s when he attended Georgetown Prepatory School. He has already denied Dr Ford's allegations. "They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of", he said.

"And when I see what's going on right now, it's scary", adding that at the moment he fears more for his sons.

Ford's attorney blasted Trump following his comments at Tuesday's rally.

"If we took 10 years, they'd want more time", he complained, charging that Democratic senators are "willing to do anything or hurt anyone" to subvert his agenda, including taking down his nominee.

He reiterated his earlier claims Tuesday that nowadays you are "guilty until proven innocent", and stepped up his line of argument that men are under attack in America, without mentioning survivors of sexual assault. After Trump's speech in MS, many followers think his early assumption that Dr. Ford is lying is inappropriate considering the investigation is still ongoing. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to fill the seat of Republican Thad Cochran, who retired in April. "It's not like I want to protect my friend", Trump said. She faces three opponents in the nonpartisan special election for the remaining two years of Cochran's term: Republican Chris McDaniel and Democrats Mike Espy and Tobey Bartee.

He also mocked Democrats as acting "holier than thou" and focused on several potential 2020 presidential contenders by name, including former vice president Joe Biden, Sen.

"They've gone insane", 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.
