Trump Mocks Christine Blasey Ford at Rally to Uproarious Laughter from Deplorable Crowd

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

Last night, at yet another Make America Clap for Me Again rally in Mississippi, Donald Trump went on an extended riff mocking Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. After ridiculing her, he went on to accuse all of the women who have alleged abuse by Kavanaugh of leaving his life "in tatters," calling them "evil people."

During this protracted attack on a survivor, the crowd roared with laughter.

Below, a video of the the President of the United States, himself a confessed sexual assaulter, publicly mocking a survivor of sexual assault and mischaracterizing her testimony while his deplorable cultists laugh.

Trump, standing at a podium in front of a crowd, says: What he's going through— [mocks Ford] "Thirty-six years ago, this happened. I had one beer." Right? "I had one beer." Well, you think it was— "Nope! It was one beer." Oh good. How did you get home? "I don't remember." How'd you get there? "I don't remember." Where is the place? "I don't remember." [crowd begins laughing] How many years ago was it? "I don't know. I don't know." [crowd cheers and applauds] "I don't know. I don't know!" 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." [laughter and cheers] And a man's life is in tatters. A man's life is shattered. His wife is shattered. His daughters, who are beautiful and incredible young kids— They destroy people; they wanna destroy people. These are really evil people.
Ford does recall when the incident happened, and that it was in an upstairs room. He is deliberately misrepresenting her testimony in order to bolster his narrative that she is a liar who made up the entire thing, rather than a credible witness who understandably remembers some details and not others from an attack made on her three decades earlier.

And, despite the fact that his party could still confirm Kavanaugh at any time, and, even if they don't, he will still be an extremely powerful judge, Trump framed Kavanaugh as a man whose life has been ruined by evil, lying bitches. This, too, is a misrepresentation. But it's one Trump needs to make in order to convince his cultists to not listen to survivors. To distrust women and protect men.

He warned the crowd that men will be fired from their jobs and bellowed, "Think of your husbands! Think of your sons!"

And laugh at Christine Blasey Ford.
