President Trump Mocked Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford at a Mississippi Rally

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.

That tone went out the window at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, where the president mocked Ford's testimony in front of a cheering crowd, NBC reports.

The audience laughed as the president said: "Thirty-six years ago this happened: I had one beer!"

"'How did you get home?' I don't remember".

Ford claims she can not remember how she got to or from the party where the assault allegedly happened. "The interaction with the members was sharp and partisan, and that concerns me", Flake said. 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it? "I don't drink", Trump told reporters jokingly, resulting in a burst of laughter from some reporters at a White House news conference.

But Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Kavanaugh could be excused for showing passion.

The letter went on: "This afternoon, we learned of media reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not intend to interview either Dr Ford or Judge Kavanaugh". Kavanaugh repeatedly has denied all such allegations against him. That's a very, very hard standard.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top USA court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men. "This is a very hard time".

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader from NY, said the Senate should be briefed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at least 24 hours before an initial procedural vote on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination.

While the Federal Bureau of Investigation probes sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, senators were digging in along partisan lines about Kavanaugh's fitness for the high court and how the confirmation process has been handled.

After Brett Kavanaugh's repeated declarations of "I like beer" during congressional hearings last week, President Donald Trump acknowledged on Monday it's a trait he doesn't share with his Supreme Court nominee.

"Well, I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he added.

While discussing Donald Trump mocking Christine Blasey Ford's testimony against Brett Kavanaugh tonight, CNN host Don Lemon said the president just "can't resist mocking" a credible witness.

At least 22 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct between the late 1970s and 2013. "They can say anything they want but we can't sue them, because if you're famous you can't sue, figure that out". So far, no Democrat has announced support for Kavanaugh and no Republican has declared opposition to him. "So now Trump is laughing at her with his "people" and Dr. Ford said one of the most traumatizing memories for her was..."
