The president, who won the male vote in 2016 and continues to count white men among the groups that support him most, seems to be unaware of how different groups experience crime - and accusations about crime - differently. "Downstairs? Where was it - I don't know." - though Ford has consistently said that it was an upstairs bedroom. He poked fun at Ford's recollection of details about the episode, including how much she drank and where the party was located. Ford claims Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted her while they were at a party during their high school years, and has said Judge was also in the room.
As the investigation of past actions continues, lawmakers in both parties are parsing Kavanaugh's testimony from last week. "Right now I would say, my sons", he replied.
In an interview with Today on Wednesday morning, Republican Sen.
Controversy surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination ahead of November mid-term elections - in which Republicans are facing an uphill battle to keep control of Congress - is threatening to derail Trump's push to get a conservative majority on the Supreme Court before the vote.
But, he added, numerous other accusations endangering Kavanaugh's nomination amounted to "college kids acting like many college kids".
The audience applauds as President Donald Trump speaks at a rally Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018, in Southaven, Miss. She said Ford has "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president".
"What neighborhood was it in? I don't know. But I had one beer", Trump said, to laughter from the crowd. "I don't know", Trump said, flailing his arms around to mock her as he has some of his political foes or journalists during similar events in the past. "That's the only thing I remember", Mr Trump mocked. In the statement, a man who says he is Ford's former boyfriend says he saw Ford, a psychology professor, coach a friend on how to be less nervous during a polygraph examination. "A man's life is shattered".
But at his rally on Tuesday, the president dismissively imitated Ford's appearance on Capitol Hill in an effort to cast doubt on her testimony. "We don't want to go on a witch hunt, do we?" Alaska Natives haveflooded the senator's office with calls and letters about their fears about Kavanaugh's past rulings on the environment, climate change and voting rights, as well as a case the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear this year about whether the state or federal government gets to set rules for subsistence fishing by indigenous people.
Mr Trump also pretended to be a son asking his mother how to respond to an accusation.
At one point, ABC's Cecilia Vega grilled Sanders by asking "just a couple days ago the president called Blasey Ford a credible witness, very compelling, but now he is basically making her out to be a liar, so which is it?" Five months into her Senate appointment, Hyde-Smith has proven to be the most reliable Trump ally, voting with the president 100 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight.
Trump limited the investigation to no more than a week.
"In this era of #MeToo, there are a lot of men - and some women - who believe that justice no longer exists in America", Luntz said.
The mad scramble to get Trump SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh confirmed has caused key members of the Senate GOP to drop their masks and expose their inner ghouls.
