A few weeks ago ,Christine Blasey Ford said at a public hearing during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process that what she remembered most vividly about her alleged sexual assault was the two boys’ “uproarious laughter.”
So why then, Lesley Stahl asked President Trump during a 60 Minutes interview, did he make fun of Ford at a rally this month, eliciting loud laughter from thousands of the people in the audience?
In typical Trump fashion, however, The president insisted he had treated Ford with “great respect”—and even bragged about how much Kavanaugh was helping the GOP in midterm polling.
“The way now Justice Kavanaugh was treated has become a big factor in the midterms,” he said. “Have you seen what’s gone on with the polls?”
He then moved to shut down the Ford discussion completely.
“You know what? I’m not going to get into it because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won,” Trump said, referring to Kavanaugh’s eventual confirmation to the Supreme Court.
So now, imagine if you will, telling your daughter that it doesn’t matter anymore that she was assaulted because the person who allegedly assaulted her got a prominent position. Imagine telling your daughter that what happened to her simply isn’t important because the man who allegedly did that to her “won in the end.”
Imagine that, because that is exactly what Donald Trump is telling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford with his vile comments.
If Donald Trump didn’t cross the line before with anything he said about Dr. Ford, he most definitely did now.
