Earlier today, in what will probably go down in history as one of Trump’s most disgusting moments in office, our tweeter-in-chief took to his favorite platform and called out the woman claiming his SCOTUS pick sexually assaulted her, saying that if it were true, she would have filed charges.
I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!

Trump’s despicable remarks went against the advice of his party and his own aides, that he should absolutely not “disparage” her while openly defending Judge Kavanaugh and the timetable set for his confirmation.
Understandably, the tweet was not well-received by Democrats or many in his own party, with one Republican Senator, Susan Collins from Maine, who called the remark “appalling.”
But, as can be expected from the party of Trump, one GOP Senate Candidate, probably trying to get into Trump’s good graces and perhaps earn one of those rallies that our so-called “president’s” base just loves, jumped on the “we don’t care” bandwagon and called Dr. Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh “absurd.”
In an interview with a North Dakota radio station, GOP Senate Candidate Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) had the audacity to compare Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations to that of Anita Hill’s saying:
‘If to the degree there was any legitimacy to Anita Hill’s claims, and she tried and didn’t prevail — Clarence Thomas did and America did — this case is even more absurd because these people were teenagers when this supposed alleged incident took place.’
‘These are teenagers who evidently were drunk, according to her own statement. They were drunk. Nothing evidently happened in it all, even by her own accusation. Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere.’

According to CNN, a spokesman for Cramer’s campaign did not respond to a request for a statement. Gee… We can’t imagine why.
