If you haven’t seen the U.S. president openly mocking a woman who was brave enough to testify against a Supreme Court nominee, accusing him of sexual assault, it is shocking.
At a Mississippi rally on Tuesday, Trump shamelessly ridiculed Christine Blasey Ford’s credible Senate testimony against his Supreme Court Brett pick Brett Kavanaugh. Trump had mocked Ford for having supposed memory gaps, which are common for sexual assault victims.
“Listen Donny, trauma survivors don’t always remember every detail,” said Colbert in his Late Show monologue Wednesday. “Also, you are lying when you say that Dr. Ford couldn’t remember anything.”
Colbert pointed out with footage from the rally and the Senate hearing, Trump repeatedly uses the words, “I don’t know,” to mock Ford, even though she provided these answers in her testimony.
She did know.
