At a raucous rally in Southaven, Mississippi, Tuesday night, President Trump mocked Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before Congress last week that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexual assaulted her when they were both in high school.
“I had one beer. Well you think? Nope, it was one beer. How did you get home? I don’t know 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, ” President Trump said, imitating Blasey Ford.
Trump, who last week referred to Ford as a “very credible witness, ” continued in his impression: “What neighborhood was it in? I don’t know. Where’s the house? I don’t know, upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don’t know, but I had one beer, that’s the only thing I remember.”
As the president accused the Democrats of having been attempting to destroy Kavanaugh since “the very first second he was announced, ” the crowd broke into chants of support for the Supreme Court nominee.
“We want Kavanaugh, we want Kavanaugh, ” the crowd chanted.
