KARACHI: US President Donald Trump has spoken up about Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for the first time. While addressing his supporters at a campaign rally, Trump made shockingly sexist remarks against Ford, who has been receiving many death threats and has been forced to flee her home since private information leaked on the Internet ever since she initially came forward with her allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

“I had one beer. Well, do you think it was – nope, it was one beer,” Trump said as he attempted to impersonate Ford’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “How did you get home? I don’t remember. How’d you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know.”

At this, his supporters started laughing and applauding.

“I don’t know. I don’t know,” he continued. “What neighborhood was it in? I don’t know. Where’s the house? I don’t know. Upstairs, downstairs – where was it? I don’t know – but I had one beer. That’s the only thing I remember.”

Speaking about Kavanaugh, Trump said: “I don’t even know him. I met him for the first time a few weeks ago. I don’t even know him. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, gee, I want to protect my friend.'” He further contested that the Democrats who are believing Ford’s testimony are “evil” and want to “destroy people”.

The worst yet was when he said in his speech that men in America are under attack somehow. “Think of your son. Think of your husband,” Trump told the rally, and he mentioned the “many false allegations” that came up against him last year.
