The commander-in-orange continues to rail against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accusers. After Boulder's Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that at a party back at Yale, Kavanaugh was "thrusting his penis in her face," causing her to touch it, President Donald Trump called her a forgetful drunk who "has nothing."
Trump could be a little sensitive to these issues, as he faces his own litany of sexual-harassment allegations. And readers are quick to point that out:
His responses are that of a first grader....
But LeeAnna argues:
He's right, this is a shit-show charade planned by the Dems.
The victims want the FBI investigations. Kavanaugh, the GOP and Trump don't. What are they hiding and why?
It's like someone is daring him each morning to be worse than the day before.
Does it matter, POTUS??? Were you “inebriated and messed up”? Were your victims?
As for Kavanaugh, Derek concludes:
Only 16 more allegations until he ties Trump.

During an exchange with reporters at the United Nations General Assembly on September 25, Trump (as quoted by Axios) referred to Ramirez as "the second accuser," adding that she "has nothing. She thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not. She admits that she was drunk, She admits that there are time lapses. ... She said, well, it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she was totally inebriated and messed up."
Trump continued: "She doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him, and 'Oh, gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.'"
He characterized her account, first shared by the New Yorker on September 23, as "a con game being played by the Democrats."
