President Donald Trump has blasted Christine Blasey Ford for the holes in her accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and defended his pick for the high court.
Trump’s remarks came at a midterm campaign rally on Tuesday night at the Landers Center Arena in Southaven, Mississippi, a suburb of Memphis in the far northwest corner of the state.
‘Guilty until proven innocent, that’s very dangerous for our country,’ Trump said of Ford’s testimony last week that Kavanaugh attempted to hold her down and remove her clothes in 1982, when they were both in high school. Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegation.
‘I had one beer!’ Trump told the noisy crowd, mocking Ford’s testimony that she can’t remember the date or location of the alleged attack, but was sure that she had only consumed one beer.
