Christine Blasey Ford nearly upended Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation.
Her false allegation of sexual misconduct nearly forced him to withdraw.
But in a recent interview Trump admitted something about her that no one could believe.
CBS’s Lesley Stahl asked Trump about the fake story that he mocked Ford’s Senate testimony.
Ford’s story fell apart because she could not remember any details about when or where Kavanaugh supposedly attacked her.
The media claimed Trump telling the truth about her flimsy story at a campaign rally was “mocking” her.
Trump shut this nonsense down.
The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump defended a recent speech highlighting Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s lack of recollection about an alleged sexual assault by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in a wide ranging interview on “60 Minutes.”
Trump referenced Ford’s replies of “I don’t know” when pressed during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on where the alleged assault took place, what exact date it took place, and who was in attendance. “I had one beer and that’s the only thing I remember,” the president said, mocking Ford’s concrete recollection of only having had one beer.
“Had I not made that speech, we would not have won. I was just saying she didn’t seem to know anything,” Trump said defiantly to “60 Minutes,” adding, “I didn’t really make fun of her.”
“60 minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl pressed Trump on whether he believed Ford was lying during her account, to which he replied, “I’m not gonna get into it because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.”
When Ford testified, pundits thought Kavanaugh was finished.
But Republicans – beginning with Kavanaugh’s testimony – went on the offense.
Ford’s story was not credible.
It was full of holes and she constantly changed her story.
Trump pointing that out helped push the nomination over the finish line.
