During a rally Tuesday night in Mississippi, Trump mocked testimony given by Ford, who testified last Thursday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on her allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.
"How did you get home?" Trump said, imitating Ford. "'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.'"
"What neighborhood was it in?" he continued. "'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.'"
Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations, as well as sexual misconduct accusations by two other women. A Senate vote on his confirmation was delayed to give the FBI time to investigate the claims.
