In the past few weeks, President Donald Trump has gone from calling Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford a “very fine woman” who came across as “credible” in her Senate testimony to openly mocking her while calling her allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her “fabricated” and part of a Democratic “hoax.”
He’s now moved on to essentially calling her evil.
During a Florida speech in front of law enforcement officers, the president boasted about the newly-minted Supreme Court justice, describing the 53-year-old as a “young man” who is “flawless” before moving on to railing against the allegations of sexual misconduct.
“False charges, false accusations, horrible statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about,” he yelled. “Frankly terms that he probably never heard in his life. He was this he was that. He never even heard of these terms.”
Trump added, “It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil. And he toughed it out.”
In an interview with Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro this past weekend, Trump said that he decided to start attacking and mocking Ford because he felt he “had to even the playing field,” crediting his actions for Kavanaugh’s razor-thin confirmation.
Watch the clip below.
