Speaking to reporters this afternoon, President Donald Trump reflected on the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct that have been made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by noting that “it’s a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of.”
Seemingly already having made up his mind that the accusations are bogus and feraring a war on men, the president remarked that “you can be an exemplary person for 35 years” but somebody can come along and say you’ve done “this or that” even though all the witnesses say it didn’t happen.
“This is a very, very — a very difficult time,” Trump exclaimed. “What’s happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice — it really does.”
He continued, “You can be somebody that was perfect your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman, but somebody can accuse you of something and you’re automatically guilty. In this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent. That’s one of the very, very bad things taking place right now.”
Meanwhile, when asked if he had a message for women, Trump said that “women are doing great.”
Also from the South lawn pool report: "Asked if he had 'a message for young women,' Trump said 'women are doing great.'"

Trump’s comments on this being a “scary time for young men” echo what we recently heard from his large adult son Donny Jr., who said that he was more scared for his sons than daughters in the wake of the Kavanaugh allegations.
