Trump mocks Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford at campaign rally

Trump Don't think Kavanaugh lied

Refraining from drinking one of my only good traits: Donald Trump

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.

No surprise here. Donald Trump wishes we could just go back to the good ol' days before accused sexual assaulters were "guilty until proven innocent". Doesn't necessarily have to be a woman. but somebody could accuse you of something and you're automatically guilty, but in this realm you are truly guilty until proven innocent. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America", Trump told reporters.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake. You could be someone that was ideal your whole life, and somebody else could accuse you of something.

Cardi B turns herself in to police, charged with endangerment and assault
Cardi B was in New York Saturday night performing at the 2018 Global Citizen Concert in Central Park's Great Lawn. Later, Cardi B alleged on Instagram that Minaj had made disparaging remarks about her ability to be a good mother.

While the president and other conservatives have suggested that countless young men will now be falsely accused of sexual assault due to the allegations against Kavanaugh, a 2012 study showed that only about two percent of rape accusations are found to be false.

Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing.

"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks".

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. Trump subsequently ordered the investigation.

The Eagles are reportedly interested in Bell , while the Jets and 49ers have "also made exploratory calls". If Bell returns to the team by the bye week, he could play his first game in Week 8 against the Browns.

Kavanaugh's truthfulness to Congress - including how he represented his alcohol consumption - is also under the scanner, with a former Yale classmate on Monday accusing the judge of misleading lawmakers when he said he never experienced blackouts. "I thought her testimony was very compelling, and she looks like a very fine woman to me, very fine woman", Trump said of Ford while speaking to reporters on Friday. "For me, that would not be acceptable". "They destroy people, these are really evil people", Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has vowed that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week. That is one of the very bad things that is taking place right now'.

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.

Flake said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had completed interviews with four people.

While many prominent public figures have seized on the latest resurgence of the #MeToo movement to send a message to women and victims of sexual assault that their voices are being heard, Trump has focused on backing up the accused. Judge has previously denied any memory of such an incident.
