Up to this point, President Trump has tiptoed around the issue of Ford.
While he still supports Kavanaugh, the astute among us witnessed the distance he began to give himself.
Given that expressing my feelings toward the women being used as part of the Kavanaugh witch hunt, I don’t blame any man for keeping his mouth shut. The president has been called a misogynist, and he knows a setup when he sees it. So he rightfully avoided the fracas, and let things play out.
And boy have things played out.
Evidence suggests what most of America knows, and this is Ford lied under oath about her fear of flying, small places, and helping other people with polygraphs. It’s only a matter of time before this information is completely corroborated.
Apparently, President Trump has seen enough information to now attack Ford and the Democrats.
As Newsmax reported:
President Donald Trump ignited a crowd at a campaign rally in Mississippi on Tuesday by mocking a woman who has claimed she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh decades ago.
The audience laughed as Trump ran through a list of what he described as holes in Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She testified that Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed, tried to take off her clothes and covered her mouth in the early 1980s, when the two were teenagers. Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegations.
“How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember,'” Trump said at the rally in Southaven. “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.'”
Imitating Ford, he added, “But I had one beer — that’s the only thing I remember.”
Remember when Trump made his brash statements on illegals crossing our borders?
Remember when Trump criticized our trade deals, NATO, and a host of other Obama era nonsense.
When President Trump attacks an issue, public support swings America’s way. And stopping false accusations against good men is an American issue.
President Trump is addressing #MeToo, the Women’s Movement, feminism, Leftism, and whatever else. Further, it’s way past time.
It marked the sharpest criticism by Trump of Ford since she came forward publicly with the allegation last month. He had previously called Ford a “very credible witness.”
Ford’s lawyer Michael Bromwich called Trump’s attack “vicious, vile and soulless.”
“Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well?” Bromwich tweeted. “She is a remarkable profile in courage. He is a profile in cowardice.”
Trump is anything but a coward. Moreover, I believe he knows the outcome of this, having done his own calculus.
For Trump to do this at a rally shows his new level of comfort, as we witness the art of the deal.
Watch how things begin to turn away from Ford and others, now that Trump has entered the fray.
