'Very scary time' for young American men, says Donald Trump

Brett Kavanaugh

"How did you get there?"

Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) that there would be a brief FBI investigation to look into Ford and other women's sexual misconduct claims.

In a one-man re-enactment of her appearance before the Judiciary Committee, with his voice alternating between inquisitor and an impression of Ford, Trump challenged the veracity of the testimony that has paused Kavanaugh's confirmation. "'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'".

"They destroy people, they want to destroy people".

While the GOP has continued to deny the problem of sexual assault and ignore the deep anger that the Kavanaugh nomination has ignited among women across the country, Jean-Pierre said only a "twisted worldview" could result in the opinion that men are the victims of this historic moment. Trump said to the Southaven, Miss., crowd.

Trump's point - we think - is Ford's claims aren't credible because she can't remember many details about the alleged incident.

"I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon", Graham said in a statement. "But now you're guilty until proven innocent", Trump said. I don't know - but I had one beer.

But Trump spent much of the rally lamenting the treatment of Kavanaugh by Democrats, whose attacks, he said, had taken their toll on the judge's family.

The audience laughed as Trump parodied Ford's tearful testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

"We continue to confront how we can move forward as a society after looking the other way as women have been mistreated and abused for generations, and how that interacts with available evidence and the ability to determine culpability for past actions", he said. The next day, the committee voted yes on the nomination along party lines under a "gentlemen's and -women's agreement" that the FBI would investigate.

Trump meanwhile said the White House would not restrict the new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, requested by senators before they take a final vote on Kavanaugh. Any lawyer will tell you that she said-he said situations are some of the hardest and most painful cases to review, and that remains true here. That's very risky for our country. "This is a very, very, very hard time", he said. "Let it happen to me, it shouldn't happen to him, shouldn't happen to him", he said of his Supreme Court pick.

During a news conference at the United Nations last week, Trump suggested he was concerned that #MeToo might go too far.

"Think of your son".

A witness said that a friend of Kavanaugh's then threw a glass that hit the same patron in the ear, causing bleeding.
