Attorney fires back at Trump for mocking Ford during rally

Attorney fires back at Trump for mocking Ford during rally

At a campaign rally later in Mississippi, Trump pretended to be a son asking his mother how to respond to such an accusation.

Mr. Trump mocked the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who is Kavanaugh's most prominent accusers, after she appeared Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying she couldn't recall key details of the alleged assault. "Well, do you think it was - nope, it was one beer", Trump said during the rally in Southaven, Mississippi.

"'How did you get home?' I don't remember". I don't remember. How many years ago was it?

"I don't remember", he said in his Ford voice, which was deeper. I don't know. But I had one beer. 'I don't know. I don't know.

"I don't know. I don't know", he said.

"What neighborhood was it in?" 'Where's the house?' I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don't even know him. "'I had one beer, '" Trump began.

It marked the sharpest criticism by Trump of Ford since she came forward publicly with the allegation last month.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he said, adding: "My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty".

The show has since seen many revivals on Broadway as well as performances in the United Kingdom and tours around North America. When the story begins, the tensions between the rival Jets and Sharks gangs led each side to the brink of war.

Trump also ripped the effect of Blasey Ford's allegations.

Officials said Mr. Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 percent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff. People also slammed him for his insensitivity.

He describes Ford as a "remarkable profile in courage" while calling the president "a profile in cowardice".

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.

Trump's remarks in MS also follow a bombshell New York Times report noting various tax schemes, some which could be considered fraudulent, in the 1990s. He referred to Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, who says Kavanaugh was present during a gang rape in the '80s, as having "no clue" what was going on during a Tuesday NBC interview. But the event's start was slightly delayed until just after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement pushing back on the article and suggesting that the newspaper should apologize for its reporting.

Senator McConnell said a vote would happen on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination by the end of the week. "This is a very, very - this is a very hard time".

"Your vote in this election will decide which party controls the United States Senate", Mr. Trump said. It really does. You could be somebody that was flawless your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something.

When a journalist asked, moments later, whether Trump had a message for American women, the president replied, "Women are doing great".
