Donald Trump and his Republican politicians believe in winning–at any cost. They are determined to install their nominee to the Supreme Court. Those members of the GOP urged Trump to not comment on Brett Kavanaugh, and for a while it POTUS managed to contain himself. Yet, the president just cannot seem to help himself, and he started speaking out against his nominee’s detractors.
The commander-in-chief talked to journalists prior to the United Nations meeting in New York. He said that women’s allegations of sexual abuse during Kavanaugh’s alcohol-infused high school and college years were “unfair, unjust,” according to CNN:
‘Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person and I am with him all the way. I think it could be — chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything.’
The Judicial Committee thrust Dr. Christine Blasey Ford into the limelight after a private letter was leaked to the press. Blasey alleged that Kavanaugh and one of his friends forced her into a bedroom during a party. The young football player pinned her to the bed, ground himself against her, and tried to pull off her clothes.
When she tried to scream, he put his hand over her mouth. Blasey was afraid that he would inadvertently kill her. Finally, she escaped, but the trauma has lived with her all these years.
Now, a second woman has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a party.
Trump has had no sympathy for the women. Perhaps, that was because he allegedly forced himself on women throughout his life. The president continued with the reporters, implying that an event 36-years-old had no relevance:
‘For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mention it — all of the sudden it happens. In my opinion, it’s totally political.’
