CNN’s Jake Tapper criticized the president for making fun of Christine Blasey Ford testimony against Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Tapper stated, “Just days after President Trump said he found Christine Blasey Ford to be a quote, ‘credible witness with,’ quote, ‘compelling testimony’ that Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her back in the 80’s,’ the president at a campaign rally mocked that very same testimony, turning Professor Christine Blasey Ford into an object of ridicule.”
After playing the clip of the president mocking Ford, Tapper stated, “Uproarious laughter, having fun at her expense, whether or not you believe that pain was inflicted by Brett Kavanaugh.”
“We don’t know if President Trump thinks it’s useful to ridicule a woman claiming she was sexually assaulted or if he just did it ’cause he thought it was fun. But let’s take a moment to reflect that the President of the United States believes it’s appropriate. There appears to be no bottom.”
